submissions would would make Olympic wrestling more spectator friendly

also they can institute additional point system like giving points for mount, guard pass, sweep, knee on belly etc

also the guard position wouldn't be a pin-fall

that's submission grappling. Not wrestling. Which is awesome, but it's not wrestling.

No, it's fine. The way to fix olympic wrestling is to fire everyone who made that horrible decision.

Allow knees to the head and soccer kicks to downed opponents.

freestyle wrestling is way more exciting and fast paced than submission wrestling

They should make wrestling more interesting to the viewers and less boring and gay.  

Just kidding.  There is nothing that can be done to make wrestling interesting.

This gets me thinking, wouldnt it be a trip if wrestling and BJJ were designed into some sort of point-based game. This hybrid could be introduced into the olympics eventually.

As for wrestling, it can never change. If it is going to be in the olympics, it must be pure, otherwise the purpose is defeated. Its a really sad day for a lot of people. this could change the future of wrestling for a long time. i think colleges and high school programs in US get shelved little by little. Its so unfortunate.

How about they *keep* wrestling and *add* submission wrestling. Two very different grappling arts. It's like comparing boxing to kickboxing.
