I am surprised that wrestling would be considered to be cut. I was not surprised at the comment Mr. Carr made regarding ping pong (table tennis) given that this sport is mostly played inside basements in the USA. However, I would like to challenge Mr. Carr to a table tennis match to see if I can improve his view of what he seems to feel is a non-sport. Surely he has nothing to fear from a 57 year old, 40 year veteran of ping pong tournaments!? I hope wrestling remains as an Olympic sport.

Classic Greek competition is not worthy of sport, but pulling a trigger?
