I remember as a kid apart from playing football and tig, playing wrestleing was my favourite passtime. Me my brother and two friends would go into the back garden with a inflatable matress with a real un-used matress underneath and play tag team matches and royal rumbles.... it was great fun.
Then that story about those two kids that died doing it came out. The WWF heavily stressed that this shouldnt be tried at home and that it was extremely dangerous.
Now i dont know about other kids but when i played wrestling as a kid we never hit each other properly, mostly it was thin air fighting, slams were done while standing on your knees and a swantom bomb was swapped for a forwards roll. I never got told off for doing this (although alot of the time my mum kept an eye on us) as we never got hurt and we knew were the line was, even as kids.
Did anyone else used to play wrestling and do you think its wrong? While its dangerous how dangerous do you think it is ?
