I just saw that. Given the popularity of wrestling they obviously aren’t trying to win the hearts of their people!

He's one of the most popular in the country, and that's why they execute him.

That is some seriously warped reasoning.

If they execute him, why would they not execute you?  I'm sure people are asking themselves that very question.   Part of a campaign to spread fear by those who do not value life.

We need to encourage their wrestlers to defect.

Don't protest against a totalitarian government is the key here.  Do it you could die.  Don't and you might live.

Hope to have lots of turkey callers at my funeral.

Both countries lost a golden opportunity to improve relations back in 2013 when the IOC dropped wrestling
