This is fucking stupid. Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in the olympics.
It's being done for business reasons. I read a super long article that went in depth about why they are choosing to do it and why some of the other 7 sports it's going up against to be reinstated were all cut. It simply comes down to ticket sales and the money made off it.
I won't be surprised if they eventually try to cut out everything that isn't aquatics, gymnastics, or track & field based.
I respect all athletes but seriously you can't tell me that the shotput, archery, and curling are a bigger sport than wrestling.
