Earlier today, the International Olympic Committee announced they would be removing amateur wrestling from the Olympics beginning in 2020. Dixie Carter took to the internet and sent out a press release, urging wrestling promoters and promotions (including WWE), to appeal the decision.
“The news from the IOC is very disheartening to all of us at TNA as well as the tens of millions around the world who either participate in amateur wrestling or enjoy watching it in its entertainment form,” stated TNA President Dixie Carter. “We need to join together right now. We encourage our own IMPACT WRESTLING community, WWE and wrestling organizations worldwide as well as competitive amateur coaches and athletes to have a unified voice to make sure wrestling will be an Olympic sport in 2020.”
