I'd tend to agree with this but...

Wrestling is one of the only few sports that were presented in antiquity. It's a shame that they get rid of such a classic Olympic sport. I mean, yeah, it's gay, and ancient greeks were gay, but you know? Just changing for the sake of changing is stupid.

And so is trampoline.

I'm not necessarily a fan of wrestling, but I agree they shouldn't throw the tradition out. There are plenty of other "sports" they could cut. Dressage comes to mind. The horse is doing the work, so I don't see how the people could be considered as competing.

I agree, get rid of all of the equestrian events altogether, considering that the horse does all the work, and not the dumbass on the horse. Whoever thought up of this idea as an Olympic sport should've been bitchslapped out of the IOC. I would also consider getting rid of those floor exercises and most certainly get rid of that ribbon waving shit, which are all stupid as hell.

They need to bring baseball/softball back, a good number of countries play that game well, and that's a much better choice than any of the alternatives.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

It used to be called jumpoline, until your mother discovered it.

Anyway, I think this is horrible. One less thing college wrestlers can look forward to~

I don't watch the Olympics, but still, athletes strive to go.

And regarding football, softball, baseball, etc... They have their own championships and such.

Golf is the sport that really needs cutting. The only reason it's being added to the '16 and '20 games it that it can garner a crowd to watch like any of the Pro tours. I really don't care for wrestling but I do care about tradition and it's sad to see it being cut.

I didn't even realise it was being added. Damn. The likes of rugby, cricket and baseball won't be far behind then.

It is a shame.

If they cut out Table Tennis and Judo I will be enraged. But wrestling? Nah, I have no emotional outbursts for such a sport. No kicks? No punches? No flips and shit? Where's the point of interest?

Golf is going to appear as an Olympic Medal sport in 2016.

If they focused solely on martial arts, maybe I'd actually start watching. While they're at it, they should add branches for Ninjutsu, Aikido, Tai-Chi and Kung-Fu. That would be awesome.

Odd that Wrestling is classified as a martial art btw...

Can't say I'm looking forward to that. I actually went to watch a golf tournament last year (I live right beside a golf course) and it was... not fun. You just stood silently (they had 'bouncers' to throw out anyone who didn't stay still and harmonious) and watched as the golfers concentrated, swung, and started talking towards the ball. An endless loop of the same process. Just watching, walking, watching, walking. It didn't feel very eventful at all. Minigolf, however...

There is a difference between actual wrestling and the crap you watch on TV you twit.

You best be trolling anyway, if you're serious...you deserve a punch in the face.

Actually, yeah, now that you mention it.

Basically, the success of a winner gives the IOC another reason to keep it in as a sport, that way they get to see two dongs in one shot.

The olympic wrestlers are amateur wrestlers. If the PROFESSIONALS are faking it, how can you expect the amateur guys to be real? That's like saying some unsigned music group is better than Justin Bieber, when clearly Justin is the one with the label, therefore more legitimate as a musician. Come on kid, it's 2013, people stopped believing wrestling was real in like 1995.

This is something you will need to look up on KID. The actual wrestling have certain rules applied to the competitors in which they would have to compete under certain restrictions. Unlike WWE, you don't go and hit someone behind with a chair, you really have to wrestle.

Of course judging by your insane troll logic, I would be surprised if you even believing what you just posted, KID.

I for one am outraged at this fact. It shouldn't matter how enjoyable it is to watch or how many people tune in for that part of the olympics. it should be honored and respected simply because it was the ORIGINAL olympic competition. How do you get rid of the thing that started it all? It's like Newgrounds without Tom Fulp

I imagine some little kid twirling a ribbon in front of a wrestler, laughing at his face before being grabbed and tossed into a bin.

Add rugby? Of course they should do that! They shouldn't remove a sport though.

They should totally add naumachia. Best. Sport. Ever.

P.S.: I put a bomb in the exact area because it's terrible to see the fighter situation I don't wanna trouble with my reputation =P

The chinese fighter will have a lot of trouble with your uncommon"trouble"...

Dudes, i found the photo without a bomb.... in a gay brazilian site =O

You are correct.... It's a big trouble :/

If you wanna to see the uncensored picture, remember:

1) The brazilian website it's not mine... including the photo
2) Check the rules of your internet country access... This could be a trouble...
3) The responsability is yours... My intention, as journalist, is to share informations... (18+ adult content)

Regardless of how people feel about watching wrestling, it's a legitimate sport that takes lifelong dedication to make it at an Olympic level. It would be a shame if it was cut considering some of the other sports that are sticking around.
