At work, for reference when I'm not; wrestling or "wrestling"?

I thought WWE was acting? Isn't it scripted? If it is then the outcome is pre set and there is no competition. Can't really call it a sport.

My son has wrestled and practiced with a few of these guys from this show, they hit each other, they go home with whelps on the bodies, and hit each other with foreign objects. Scripted, yea…maybe just enough to get your blood pressure up, but it take an athlete with lots of endurance to run around the ring and do the stunts they do.

Thats why they call it "Sports Entertainment" now and not a sport.

I am very excited to see him return he has awesome personality and make the show alot more entertaining IMO

So does this mean all hollywood stuntmen/women are considered athletes. What defines a sport. If it's physical exertion and endurance and not the competition then the construction industry is full of proffesional athletes.

Even though wrestling is fake I have to give those guys props. (not the wrestling props). Any huge muscular man that can stand up on the ropes ropes, and do a backflip then land on another guy without killing him is pretty talented in my book.

Lets see, here is one defination for sports: A sport consists of a normal physical activity or skill carried out under a publicly agreed set of rules, and with a recreational purpose: for competition, for self-enjoyment, to attain excellence, for the development of skill, or some combination of these. The difference of purpose is what characterises sport, combined with the notion of individual (or team) skill or prowess.

That should answer your question, I think... as for as stuntmen/women, if they need to stay in top physical shape to do their job...yes I would consider them athletic not athletes, same for the construction industries; but I would not consider them as being in a sport which athletes tend to participate in.

I agree with you, I think I was let down when I was old enough and learned WWE was fake. It was like finding out Santa was not real. Back when it was WWF I would watch it every saturday with my brother. I remember signing up in JR high school for wrestling and thinking to myself "what the hell is this crap, were are the chairs and ladders". Anyways everyone enjoys what they do, for me WWE just doesn't do anything for me.
