Is Backyard Wrestling Legal?

Hey guys I just wanted to know if it is legal. If it's not how can they be legal and still Backyard? So if they get licensed they can do it right?

.................................No. You have to buy a license for $250 in the US to be allowed to do it.

Much like BDSM it's legal as long as it's consensual and not being done in front of people who don't specifically want to see it.

Edit* Thinking about it further I've heard of something called the Athletic Commission mentioned in wrestling commentary so in the US they might have something to say about it.

Playing with your friends on a trampoline is legal. The only time a show would ever be considered illegal is if you charge admission to the show and are in a state where the athletic commission governs wrestling.

How about if all the Backyard Wrestling companies get an athletic commission license? Plus most BYW guys are trained.
