    I don’t care much for olympic wrestling but it’s been around literally forever so it would be BS to get rid of it

    Never been a fan of Olympic Wrestling but taking it out is absurd, almost as nonsense as leaving out Rugby. How the hell can you discontinue these sports and keep disciplines such as Equestrian Dressage? No offense to equestrian fans but disciplines such as dressage are really far from actual sports.
