TNA News: Dixie Carter asks for WWE help in saving Olympic wrestling
Feb 12, 2013 - 02:07 PM


TNA joined the fight to save Olympic wrestling after the International Olympic Committee voted to remove it from the 2020 games. "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," Dixie Carter stated in a press release sent to Prowrestling.net. 

"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." Read the full statement at Impactwrestling.com.

Powell's POV: Kurt Angle is quoted in the story and said he will do "whatever it takes and work with my company TNA Wrestling and the competitive wrestling community to determine what we need to do to reverse this decision." Obviously, the situation hits close to home for the gold medalist, and both he and TNA could end up getting some media attention for speaking out against the ruling.
