No form of wrestling is an actual sport, it's an entertainment-based business.
Completely laughable.

Yes, obviously wrestling is a business, about drawing money. But 99.9 % of wrestlers dont go through that hell for money. There are a million better paths to take if they are simply chasing a career. Ask any wrestler why they got into the business, and they will usually say they were inspired to take up wrestling due to their love of the business growing up, and becoming fascinated by the mechanics of wrestling etc.


How dare anyone tell anyone else what they should or not find thought-provoking? What the fuck is that? Some people find modern jazz the most amazing thing on the planet. Do i? No, but i accept that it may be possible to view it as such. Wrestling is the art of telling a story in a ring, and the two (or whatever number) wrestlers are the artists. Some people have simpler minds than others, some people understand wrestling better, and therefore say an roh or puro style will appeal to a clique of people instead of a majority. Wwe keeps things simple, because they unlike much of wrestling today IS about making money, and they do everything possible to keep the dollars flowing. This doesnt mean that its not possible to enjoy a more complex, intricate version of wrestling and find it thought provoking (even though a lot of people wouldnt understand on first viewing, it takes time, like learning a language).

So yeah, for some, roh/puro can be considered far superior to the wwe style, and there is nothing wrong with that opinion. On the other hand, the wwe is making money and in for the most part the best way possible. I dont look down at that style. This post was also directed to Brian btw.

Oh, and i admit it, im a fan of violence tbh.

Sports don't have to be competitive. There are such things as performance sports.

Professional wrestling is a non-competitive professional sport, where matches are prearranged by the promotion's booking staff, and is also considered an athletic performing art, containing strong elements of catch wrestling, mock combat and theatre.

We could also have this debate about movies. The movies that make the most money aren't the best movies out there. The independent movies, made by artistic filmmakers are the best movies out there. They just don't have the budget to be distributed to every movie theater or to be advertised on television 24/7.

This is true. Wrestling originated from what is essentially a western martial art. It gradually over time developed into a stage performance with 'spots' and pre-determined results, while taking aspects of other cultures wrestling and growing into entertainment. It has its basis in competitive sport though, there's no doubt.

I'd like to point out something I said early on. I do enjoy WWE, for what it is, and that's sports entertainment. I watch the shows. I order the PPV's once in a while. If I don't, I watch em online. I'm a fan, I'll admit that. I enjoyed the segment that happened instead of HHH vs. Orton & DiBiase, that was fuckin sick, but it was entertainment. When I'm watching RAW on monday nights, I'm watching a TV show. When I'm watching ROH or something like that, I'm watching professional wrestling, and that's what I prefer. I love how when I get in debates like this, people always forget about my views on the other side of the debate. I enjoy WWE, it's just not professional wrestling.

Can both not be classed as wrestling/entertainment?

The WWE focuses on segments and promos much more so than wrestling on its own to entertain, whereas the Indies (I don't watch a lot of Indy work, so please forgive my generalization/ignorance) tend to do the opposite. Both are seeking to entertain the observer, but elect to do so through different means. All wrestling is business seeking to make a profit; however, that doesn't mean there aren't people who do what they do because they love the business - and that goes for both sides. Basically, what I mean to say is that both sides rely on elements of sports entertainment and professional wrestling to engage viewers, but the balance differs immensely on each side.
