This is a non-political issue that should outrage paleos.
Wrestling has been a part of the modern Olympics since its inception in 1896 and was part of the ancient Olympics. The Olympics without wrestling is not the Olympics. The Summer Olympics includes synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics? Anybody who thinks synchronized swimming belongs in the Olympics but wrestling doesn’t is obviously some sort of Communist sympathizer.
Wrestling, particularly catch-as-cach-can, is America’s indigenous martial art, and judging by how well wrestlers did in the early days of MMA before everyone cross-trained (and still do), it’s a pretty effective one.
I say we send Kurt Angle to suplex all the members of the IOC onto their heads to hopefully knock some sense into them.
