Get rid of wrestling and add in pro wrestling.

Let's see US, Canada, Spain, England, and Russia in the Elimination Chamber or War Games. ;)

Soccer can go. You have the FIFA World Cup, Club World Cup, Confederations cup, and the 9873984797283 other tourneys they have. Olympic soccer has an age limit and it just doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things in international soccer, to me at least.

True, but the Olympics is one of the two biggest tournaments on the women's side, and if you have a women's tournament you pretty much have to have a men's of some kind. (This is the same reason there will always be basketball.)

Golf in the Olympics is stupid.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

I actually figured that if pro wrestling was going to be an Olympic sport, it'd be a lot closer to gymnastics. You've got XX:00 to have a match, you'd be judged on execution, storytelling, diversity of moves, etc. with singles, tag team and lucha libre divisions. Realistically, you'd probably have members of the same national team competing against each other, rather than countries squaring off.

That sounds amazing!

Its just another stupid thing to appease the fat lazy housewives who think skill is running around with a batons. Get rid of basketball, America wins all the time and when we don't, we changed the rules, so we can.
