the outcome may be pre-determined but the athletic ability it takes to do what they do is not fake by any means. There is competition within the business,it may not be the type you are used to, but it's there. I'm not saying pro-wrestling is a sport, but it is an art, much like the martial arts. So, is the outcome fake? yes. Is the athletic performance put on by the superstars risky and dangerous? Yes. So what's the difference between that and Boxing now a days? There are plenty of boxing matches with pre-determined outcomes aswell, they just dont tell you so in the open
ballet dancers are more athletic than professional wrestlers.
Do people call the ballet a sport? It's athletic--more athletic than professional wrestling--and it's scripted.
I get that pro wrestling is a polarizing discussion, especially here but it frustrates me to see people make such statements without true knowledge. Stating that the only people that enjoy wrestling are those with low IQ's is simply not true and is offensive to those of us that enjoy the product for what it is.
Coreographic dancing by roided-out men.
I said that anyone who thinks it is real, as in unscripted action, has a low IQ.Quote:

A. We talked about whether or not it is real competition.
B. We talked about whether or not it is a sport.
Two different conversations.
It is obviously not a real competition, leaving the question of whether or not it is a sport. That depends on your definition of what a sport is. I think a sport is a competition of sorts. There is no competition in wrastling, while there is entertainment. The only competition is for screen-time and salary.
Fair enough but starting that with "Coreographic dancing by roided-out men." is in itself a bit disrespectful.
Aw man that shit got awkward and scringeworthy on fox sports. Dana sitting back smiling at his handywork and Patrick Cummins talking shit and flirting with blondey. DC is my man but he had no comeback for the break down of his crying story, best he could do was say he wont call him Pat anymore keeping it formal with Patrick. First time we've seen DC tongue tied this dude has gotten inside his head and been there a while.
