Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

My dad was a fan of wrestling when he was young so he still likes to watch it with my brother and I. He takes us to the ROH shows and he has a good time with us, my mom could care less.

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

A couple of years ago, when I couldn't get around because unfortunately, I didn't have the transportation capabilities and privileges, my parents absolutely hated it. My mom constantly asks me why it's so entertaining to watch "hillbillies" be gay with one another. On the other hand, my dad can at least tolerate it sometimes. He actually took myself and my younger brother to the Allstate Arena in Chicago to go see the Raw before WM23 this year, quite fun. His favorites are the classic WWF/WCW guys like Flair/Rock/Hogan/Austin/Vince McMahon, everybody else he hates.

Now'a'days, it really doesn't matter what they think. Now that I've had my license and a car for a substantial amount of time, I just drive wherever I want to go see IWA-MS, ROH, Shimmer, WWE, etc,. They don't seem to have a problem with it, even if they did, who cares, it's my car and money, I can spend it as I chose.

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

My parents both hate that I watch wrestling. My dad thinks it's stupid, even though he used to watch it as a kid but I guess he just grew out of it. I'm also the only one out of my friends who watches, none of them like it either.

When I was 15 and 16 my dad said I couldn't watch wrestling until I got as big as them.....He let me watch it again when he saw the Scorpion King..."go figure"

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

My mom was a fan growing up, she like the Von Erichs and Freebirds. She then got My brother into wrestling and he got me into it. She doesn't watch it any more though as there is to much drama.

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

My Ma really doesn't care, but I think my dad is secretly a closet wrestling fan. We were watching an IWA-MS dvd and he said "A lot better than vince's gay crap." I'm not saying anything besides...he might be a wrestling fan deep down in his heart of hearts. Maybe.

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

My mom tolerates it. My dad does too, but he would never admit it. I remember when I was younger and wanted to go to Summerslam and my dad asked me what the point was of paying to "see a bunch of fakes sweat". He then bought me tickets

Who in TNA creative has the testicular fixation? Samoa Joe lost 2 PPV main events in a row because of Ball shots. Jay Lethal lost this week due to a ball shot. Matt Morgan got laid out with a Ball shot to set up the finish on the pole match. Kong should be World Champ based solely on the fact that she isn’t susceptible to ball shots.

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

Mother- She used to like WCW back in the late 90's and early 2000's during the Arquette era. Doesn't really care for it anymore, even though she sometimes sees the commercials and wonders what happened.

Father- Watches WWE and TNA faithfully with me every time that it is on. Is a big fan of the wrestling aspect of the show.

Brother- Could care less, even though he sometimes watches it when he has nothing else to do.

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

My Mom tolerates it. She'll watch it with me when I watch it in the living room. And now she even knows some of the wrestlers. She loves Ric Flair for the obvious reason. Shes in awe that he wrestled back when she was young and hes still wrestling. My dad loves wrestling. He got me into it since I was like 2-3. Even when I went through spurts of not watching it at all he still did. Now he watches every Impact and Smackdown and a little ECW and Raw but he says there on too late for him. He ll watch a match or two on an ROH DVD also. He absolutely loves it and asks me every day if something big happened in the wrestling world. The rest of my family makes fun of me for the obvious reasons(Fake, childish, etc). And as far as friends go I have like 4 who watch it and love it but the rest of my friends tolerate it because I like it and Im the sweetest and they wouldnt dare make fun of it when Im around.

Re: Do Your Parents Like/Tolerate Wrestling?

Me and my dad watch wrestling occasinally, and he tags along with us to go to some of the IWA shows. I guess it is a way for us to spend time together in our busy schedules. My mom just stays clear of wrestling stuff.
