The latest authoritative Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association annual report on U.S. sports participation, based on about 15,000 individual surveys and 24,000 households surveys, found that about 2.1 million Americans say they competed in wrestling last year—down 44% from 2000.
Other drops in total participants over the past decade even as the U.S. population steadily expanded: slow-pitch softball (-38%), football (-16%), ice hockey (-12%), fast-pitch softball (-11%) and baseball (-8%).
Baseball is doomed! Softball is doomed! Hockey is doomed! Football is doomed! Wrestling is doomed! Soon, we will all be playing soccer and hoops and nothing else, because we’re doomed! Doomed!
