It will be back...
- Wrestling at the Olympics isn't going anywhere. As you will recall, the sport was voted out of the Olympic Games by the International Olympic Committee in February, was reinstated to be competed as normal for the 2020 Games when it received forty-nine votes in a secret ballet vote. Second place in the vote was softball/baseball with twenty-four while Squash got twenty-two votes.
The original decision had been met with a lot of controversy and many within both amateur and professional wrestling, not to mention MMA, had spoken out against it's dropping. The 2020 games will take place in Tokyo.
