Seven months after losing its Olympic place, wrestling was reinstated for the 2020 Games on Sunday when the IOC overturned a decision many members thought was a mistake.

Never shoulda been taken off in the first place.

Nice work on getting it back in

Nothing but a smile on my face all day since I heard the news. This is an honor to all who have ever wrestled, regardless of your skill or level. Huge respect to all of your hard work, dedication, sacrifice and determination. War wrestling,

The Russian Mafia, Iranian Nationalists, and Turkish Rebels may now release the IOC's family members.


Seriously, out of all the sports they could have safely eliminated without backlash why did these rich European snobs choose the one that's going to get them killed?

As long as we have ping pong and horse prancing the Olympic spirit shall remain intact.

Still sickens me that we even have to celebrate this. Never should have gone anywhere to begin with.
