Olympic Wrestling 2016: Dates, Start Times, TV Schedule, Live Stream

Olympic wrestling kicks off on Day 9 on Sunday, but this isn’t a WWE show.

The squared circle isn’t even a ring, but rather just a circular mat. Wrestling is a unique and physical sport many fans don’t often get a chance to see, but with medal events every day for the remainder of the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, there will be ample opportunity to change that.

Here’s a guide on when, where and how to watch Olympic wrestling.
