That argument doesn't wash either, wrestling is extremely popular around the world, especially compared to the alternatives. Russia and India, two enormously populated countries, watch it and its the national sport of several nations.

It does not make sense even from a "who cares about tradition", cold analytical point of view. Modern Pentathlon is garbage, but got saved by fruity Europeans and nepotism.
