You guys treat this place like some kind of wrestling forum.

So much wrestling talk. Almost makes me want to read everything and join.

Almost. Too tired, and I'm lazy by nature.

tbhayley, after reading about the IOC dropping Wrestling from the Olympics, it reminded me that the sport even existed. #standupforwrasslin'.

Saw a bit on Wrestling being dropped from the Olympics while I was watching Pardon The Interruption. Terrible turn of events.

Badminton is left though. Badminton as an Olympic sport. Yeah.

Well, you know, must make way for more important things.. like Rugby and Golf.



There's still hope for us though, they might end up adding Pankration soon which was actually rumored for a while.

Well, to be fair, rugby and golf have international fan bases and pro leagues, while badminton is hugely popular in parts of Asia. They did have a scandal at the London games, though....

I don't much like the idea of sports with high participation and relativity low entrance and training costs being cut, and that includes wrestling. A lot of the IOC member nations can't afford the likes of sailing, equestrian, gymnastics and swimming, let alone a new addition like golf.

Pankration? Well, that would soften the blow.

If the Title IX Amendment didn't already do it's part in hurting Collegiate Wrestling, this only makes it worse. The UFC is especially affected by this since Amateur Wrestlers see MMA as a fallback to their Olympic aspirations. As a big fan of both MMA and Pro Wrestling, I think this sucks big time. Media outlets barely covered the news too.

Yeah the IOC will be spending a shitload on the addition of Golf, but it's a huge draw domestically so i'm sure they'll make that back in no time.

but hey, you know, it could always be worse. I have more faith in the IOC's economic savviness than the Dutch: http://articles.businessinsider.com/...t-plan-project
