    There is the cosmic irony that Wrestling has brought in the 5 point (ippon) victory method which imo will make the sport more spectacular but is a rip off from Judo.

    So wrestling becomes more like judo, what will judo do to be less like wrestling now lol

    P.s. I'm a fan of both sports btw

    What was in the mind of those guys who attempted to eliminate wrestling from the Olympics?? It reminds me of the budget chaos that is taking place in the U.S. Congress right now. Probably some Congressmen were part of that group who wanted wrestling out of the Olympics.
