    Wow this is huge news. I can’t believe this is true actually. Wrestling was like the original sport in the Olympics or at least one of the originals.

    To make way for something stupid im sure

  3. Mattyman says:

    They need to make room for hardbody chocolate and caramel covered tiddly winks.

  4. Phil says:

    I can’t believe this , this is Bull Sh*t !

  5. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Gotta make space for another women’s bodybuilding and weightlifting division. Everyone was to see that.

  6. JD Storm says:

    yeah, get rid of an actual sport for something that nobody gives a damn about. if we haven’t added ping pong yet, now would be the time.

  7. -J- says:

    twittering is the new Olympic sport.

  8. Mr. Black says:

    This is awful news. I don’t really know what to say. I love the sport, I was a high school wrestler and it never got the respect it deserved. What has this world come to? All you see on prime time is swimming, gymnastics, and track n field. This is very upsetting…

  9. Pope 3:16 Says says:

    Ping Pong remains though.

    For gods sake it is like a mini-game of a different sport. Tennis and only Tennis should be allowed.

    Drop Badminton & Ping Pong.

    Wrestling should stay a bit crazy getting rid of something thats been in the olympics since near the start of the damn thing.

    Scumbag Olympics: You say Cycling is doped to the gills?!? Let’s respond by pulling one of the sports that have been around since the ORIGINAL Olympics, Wrestling!

  11. havok says:

    so they get rid of any actual sport like wrestling which was also at the first olympic games yet we still having curling

  12. Motorhead says:

    damn. If they gave the wrestling portion of the Olympics as much airtime as the crappy boxing (rigged in many cases)then more people may care about it. it was the first and main sport of the 1st Olympiads in Greece in, what, 1902 or ’04? Sad sad day.

  13. James says:

    That is downright insulting and unfair. A lot of great pro wrestlers came from the Olympics.

  14. raven12516 says:

    They’re knocking off wrestling, but not curling? SMH

  15. matt says:

    They should’ve eliminated field hockey. If you can’t do it on blades, youre not really amongst the best in the world IMO
