Here are Twitter reactions from several WWE stars about the IOC’s decision to cut wrestling from the Olympics:

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!
