Earlier in the week, the International Olympic Committee voted to drop the sport of wrestling from the Olympics starting in 2020. The vote has caused quite a commotion amongst those in the amateur/freestyle wrestling community and many people in professional wrestling. Most prominently from the 1996 gold medalist(current TNA star), Kurt Angle, who has vowed to fight to re-instate the sport into the Olympics. TNA wrestling has even issued a press release calling on those in the Impact Wrestling community, WWE, and wrestling organizations worldwide as well as competitive amateur coaches and athletes to have a unified voice to make sure wrestling will be an Olympic sport in 2020.
Can this vote be overturned? Will the different members of the wrestling community come together for a common cause? How will this affect those who one day dream of competing on the world stage and maybe one day becoming a pro wrestling star?
