It's a television show for entertainment, not a sport. There's fighting and contact in stuff like Power Rangers, or cartoons like Powerpuff Girls. Even Looney Tunes. Doesn't change the fact that it's for kids.

Wrestlers are booked like heroes. John Cena, Sheamus, etc, are basically real life super heroes for kids. That's their purpose. That's what Hulk Hogan was too. That's what Bret Hart was. It's quite obviously aimed at kids. You may not want to admit it for still watching it as an adult male, but that doesn't change the target audience of the show being kids. It doesn't make you a loser for still watching it and liking it, so relax.

There are times when pro wrestling is not aimed at young kids, but instead teen and early/mid 20's males, such as TNA, WCW, and attitude/ruthless aggression era WWE, but WWE currently is aimed at kids. It's always been aimed at kids with the exception of the AE and RAE as I just mentioned.
