Wrestling has been in the Olympics pretty much when the Olympics were created. It was introduced in 708 BC. But when the modern Olympics resumed in 1896, Greco-Roman Wrestling was the main focus (not including when it did not appear in 1900 Summer Olympics). IOC committee voted to remove wrestling in the 2020 Olympics but gladly with the help of 2020 visions it would later be re-instated.
