The problem is without a worldwide platform the competition will taper. Now that I've seen the comparisons between collegiate vs Olympic caliber it's like NCAA vs NBA pretty much.

It's really too bad. Wrestling would have been the absolute last sport I would imagine the Olympics cutting out after being around 15,000 years.

If they're going to take it out add in skateboarding. As Tony Hawk says, it'll bring renewed interest to the Olympics towards the younger demographic.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
