Wrestlers are athletic but not athletes. they are actors much the same as wesley snipes or any other number of athletic actors.
Try teling that to Lawrence Taylor who climbed in the ring for Wrestlemania (whatever) he gave an interview about it afterwards and he was in great shape back then...he said he could never become a proffessional wrestler because of the fact they were in great shape...athlete is defined as a professional that compeats...just because the outcome is fake doesn't mean they take hella bumbs.
