Various WWE personalities have taken to Twitter to speak against the exclusion of wrestling from the Olympics.

"The IOC's decision to drop wrestling in 2020 is baffling. I learned life lessons on the mat that I'll never forget.

Ricardo Rodriguez:
"So the Olympics are dropping Wrestling? One of the original sports? Como que what?! 'stan locos!"
"I wrestled when I was in school and hoped to one day make it to the Olympics. It's such a shame they have taken an original sport out! B.S.!"

Alberto Del Rio:
"WHAT!!!!! ARE THEY Pinche CRAZY!!!!!"
"Wrestling out of the Olympic Games #whatastupidmove"
"Wrestling is been part of the Olympic Games since the beginning. It's a beautiful sport! But I guess shooting a gun or forcing a horse to Jump over hedges is more of a sport than wrestling to the committee. This is not right!"
"Ok for those I***** from the IOC this is not a sport"
"But this one is????? U have to be kidding me #SaveOlympicWrestling"
