Just like with baseball and softball, the IOC gets it wrong again.
Well, baseball made at least some degree of sense because the best players didn't come close to playing for it, so the quality wasn't as good as it should be.

Wrestling goes back to fucking ancient Greece. It was one of the first sports revived when the Olympics returned. For it's heritage alone, wrestling needs to be a core sport. I don't care if literally no one watches it, it should still be there. The Olympics is supposed to be about more than television ratings and money, so they should suck it up.
