"This is wrestling" chants

These chants are so lame. They always happen in "technical" wrestling matches, such as Bryan-Ziggler on Raw. It essentially tells us the audience aren't invested in the characters and storylines and are only there to see choreographed fights.

This is precisely the reason why a guy like Ziggler never gets pushed up the card, because he never ever gets heel heat. Just "This is wrestling" or a couple of older smarky fans chanting "Lets go ziggler"

Re: "This is wrestling" chants

This is wrestling has got to be the worst chant ever. I can only imagine a bunch of nerds wearing glasses in the front row chanting it.

Re: "This is wrestling" chants

It just shows how desperate the currents tae of WWE is now. I always had in mind that the only goal of the weeklys was to build-up the rivalry, build-up the new character and everything but when your build-up is terrible, the only thing people can expect is wrestling, there is nothing else for them

Re: "This is wrestling" chants

If people have paid for a ticket, let them chant the fuck they want.

Can't hate them for being passionate. Sometimes the crowd are fed some of the worst feuds/storylines, so they praise the only thing that is enjoyable.

And it's definitely not the reason why Ziggler haven't moved up the card yet. He's been booked like a loser for a long time now.

Don't expect me to go out there and be a nice guy. Because I'm not a nice guy.

People have been chanting this for years....

But those chants are stupid. It'd be like chanting "This is hockey!" whenever someone does a great deke/goal or something.

Just because people are fans of one aspect of wrestling, they act like that's the only thing that matters. Just because one might be more exciting, don't get why people act like it's all that matters.

Same thing when people on this site judge someones overall ability just based on how they are in the ring. There's more to being a WWE superstar than just being technical wrestler. And you don't even need to be a technical wrestler to be good. Technical wrestling might be most entertaining, but it's not the only type out there, and shouldn't be the only one loved.

These are prob same people who only watch NBA for dunks, and only watch MLB for home runs. But they find all other parts of those sports(In basketball that'd be 3pt shots,passing the ball around to find an open shot. Or in baseballs case, "small ball" which includes bunting and just base hits and stuff to score runs). All they'd care about are those big highlight reel moments and not any other part of it.

I've never heard that chant before in my life and I've been watching wrestling (not just WWE) for 21 years.
