Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger & Cody Rhodes Talk On Olympics Dropping Wrestling

- The Sports Illustrated Extra Mustard website recently spoke to several WWE Superstars about the Olympics taking wrestling out of their line-up. Here are some highlights:

Dolph Ziggler:
“I’ve been getting texts all day from my buddies, guys I haven’t talked to since high school sending me texts and Facebook messages. It’s hitting close to home more than usual. I know it’s not 100 percent yet but there are so many Olympic events, it’s unfortunate they’ve chosen a legitimate sport and one of the original sports ever. It’s mind-blowing that it’s even on the chopping block.”

Jack Swagger:
“More of an ‘Are you kidding me?’ type of reaction. I’m so disgusted by it. I’m fired up. It’s no secret I wasn’t the most athletic kid on the playground, but I went into it head over heels even though I wasn’t good at it at first. It teaches you so much about life and that’s what makes it the best sport. It teaches you discipline and dedication and how to work hard and how to sacrifice for your goals. Those are things you can apply to any area of your life, whether it’s your education or your career. Honestly, it turned me into a man.”

Cody Rhodes:
“[It's] extremely disappointing, but I honestly cannot see them going forward with that. I’m very disappointed with the fact that they’re even considering it. This is freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. This has a rich tradition in the Olympics. I don’t even want to disparage some of the sports that they’re keeping, you just don’t do away with wrestling.”
