Greco-Roman wrestling became an event at the first modern Olympic games, in Athens in 1896. Since 1908, the event has been in every Summer Olympics.

Freestyle wrestling became an olympic event, in 1904. Women\'s freestyle wrestling was added to the Summer Olympics in 2004.

Since 1921, the International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles (FILA) has regulated amateur wrestling as an athletic discipline, while professional wrestling has largely become infused with theatrics but still requires athletic ability.

Professional wrestling has got more popularity world-wide other than Olympics. It often refers to WWE/WWF-Style Wrestling which has predetermined outcomes. In some promotions, \"feuds\" are used to build up a championship match. Performers mostly utilize the traditional Anglo-American catch wrestling holds.
