Which televised sports will/won't make it back after COVID-19 passes and sustained economic depression sets in?

This is my incomplete list:

[b]Best chance to remain (solid, real sports):[/b]
Football (American, duh), college football, the other football.

Tennis, gymnastics, ice skating.

[b]The grim reaper is pointing at you:[/b]
Wrestling sitcoms. With a large percentage of that viewing demographic facing lifelong, skyrocketing medical bills and potentially never having a job again, I don't think they're going to be in a position to give many dollars to those advertisers.

Bass fishing. See wrestling sitcoms.

The "Drive Fast Turn Left An Arbitrary Number Of Times That We Made Up To Make It Appear Significant" reruns. See wrestling sitcoms.

[b]Wild cards:[/b]
Bull riding. That one might take it on the chin because of statistics hammering that viewing demographic AND competitors, but we'll see.
Golf. Will the wealthy and privileged feel safe enough to go outside? We'll have to wait and see.
Horse racing. See golf.

I hope you’re right. I miss the popular sports (football, basketball, baseball, hockey) - even though I’m not that into them, they’re part of normal life.

But if I never saw wrestling, boxing, or car racing again, it wouldn’t break my heart.

@SmartKat I think we can go ahead and call wrestling dead right now.
