The problem with wrestling is that it does not have the viewership that gymnastics, swimming or that stupid ribbon dancing.
If people don’t watch it on TV, the IOC can and should eliminate wrestling.
Time to eliminate the olympics, period. It serves no useful purpose and is a colossal waste of money. It is nothing but a morass of PC anyway.
” that stupid ribbon dancing.”
I prefer to call it ribbon twiddling.
I’d watch it they would get rid of those ridiculous looking wresting “uniforms” and just do it like the ancient Greek men- in the buff. To make it more challenging drizzle them with olive oil.
It does not help that that NBC and its affiliates covering the Olympics put the matches on at off-prime hours, nor do they carry the matches either on demand or online. The poor viewership is more due to network disinterest than to public apathy.
