Except billiards. I imagine any sport that used to be popular and professional but no longer is would be the same. As opposed to sports where they have always been professional. It might also be interesting to see what would happen to modern athletes if the equipment and conditions went backwards as it happens nin boxing where Gloves are now much bigger, surfaces grippy and soft, shoes dont even have spikes anymore. It would be good to see the times of a modern cyclist if he had to ride a malvern star or Usain bolt running down a grass track with bear feet and no blocks. It would bring things back to the field quite a bit.
