Why is pro wrestling so great?
Prowrestling is truly great and at the very least you acknowledge it. I'll explain why. It combines sports with drama. Its like real life superheroes performing great feats in pack arenas. Its scripted, yet its live nature keeps things unpredictable. Its been around before TV and has always been on since.
Don't sports require some sort of competition between participants, wherein the most skillful competitor wins? I'd say it combines athleticism with drama, like ballet or masturbating on a webcam
There is a skill to it. Its judged by politics and the art of getting over. Getting over is having the fans behind you or against you if you're a heel. This takes much skill in the ring and on the microphone. There is a lot of competition and its truly is the greatest sport on earth.
Some French academia on the greatness of wrestling, translated to English.
cena what you just described isn't a 'sport' any more than a debate is a sport.
maybe if they did a debate with their shirts off it would be the greatest sport on earth as well
It really is one of those phenomenons that would be difficult to explain to, say, an Alien who has no idea what wrasslin is. It's kind of like an American version of Peking opera...but with its roots in carnivals and side-show attractions. The "sports" aspect is just a narrative foundation to base everything off of. It's as much a sport as a Shakespearean festival, if the plays revolved around 50% fight scenes and 50% talking about the upcoming fight scenes. Also, some of the fight scenes aren't pre-planned, but organically evolve based off of the crowd's reactions.
If it weren't for the work schedule, pain killer addiction, crappy pay if you're not in the big time and short life span of the average performer: being a wrestler has to be one of the funnest fucking jobs ever. Those wrestlers in the late 70's into the 80's really had it made.
You're just one of those guys that just doesn't get it Taipei Twerkin'.
What's to get?
Wrestling's an analogy for sex in high school.
