In its push to keep their sport in the Olympics, wrestling will get a makeover, the acting president of the sport's world governing body said Tuesday.

So say goodbye to singlets and hello to shirtless Greco-Roman wrestlers. The stage too could change – why be limited by a boring square mat? Taking the lead from the MMA world, wrestling is thinking big and bold when it comes to showmanship. Incorporating staged weigh-ins, walk-out music, lighting, visual effects and video screen replays are all being discussed.

Sounds more like WWE like changes. Turning it into a spectacle will not save it. It's not getting cut because it's boring..it's no more boring than stuff that people all of a sudden care about come olympic time. It's getting cut for no good reason at all.
