Like I mean Judo is safe isnt it?
I think this decision is about as stupid as it gets.
Wrestling is probably the second sport ever to be invented, shortly behind running.
Moreover, I bet proper wrestling (not "pro") could be a solid Olympic spectator sport if any of the networks were willing to commit some air time and build a narrative around our national team.
I personally can't think of any other sport in the Olympics that's more physically demanding than wrestling.
The good news is wrestling still has a chance to return via some sort of a wildcard system, but it's in the running with several other sports.
Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
