Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger and More Comment on Olympic Wrestling Being Dropped
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.13.2013



- Here are Twitter reactions from several WWE stars about the IOC's decision to cut wrestling from the Olympics:

Big E. Langston: The IOC's decision to drop wrestling in 2020 is baffling. I learned life lessons on the mat that I'll never forget. #SaveOlympicWrestling

Ricardo Rodriguez: So the Olympics are dropping Wrestling? One of the original sports? Como que what?! 'stan locos!

I wrestled when I was in school and hoped to one day make it to the Olympics. It's such a shame they have taken an original sport out! B.S.!


Alberto Del Rio: WHAT!!!!! ARE THEY Pinche CRAZY!!!!! Wrestling out of the Olympic Games #whatastupidmove

"Wrestling is been part of the Olympic Games since the beginning. It's a beautiful sport! But I guess shooting a gun or forcing a horse to Jump over hedges is more of a sport than wrestling to the committee. This is not right!

Ok for those I***** from the IOC this is not a sport pic.twitter.com/MzmoVgYE

Tyson Kidd: Can't understand the thought process when making a decision like taking wrestling out of the Olympics

Cody Rhodes: #SaveOlympicWrestling or lets continue teaching our kids 4th place is something to be proud of.

William Regal: The Olympic committee should hang their heads in shame.Wrestling is the original Olympic sport.

Jack Swagger: We cannot let this happen. Important! everyone go sign this petition to keep wrestling in the olympics http://wh.gov/d20I

Drew McIntyre: Hell of a booker handling Olympic wrestling situation. Drop and get heat on oldest sport, people rally behind it, big babyface comeback #101
