Originating in the days of travelling carnival shows, professional wrestling's humbler beginnings include strongman feats, hook wrestling , and other acrobatic performances. It should be noted that in the earlier parts of the 20th Century, "professional wrestling" was at times, just that, a professional contest of amateur style wrestlers competeing for a purse with similar league structure to professional boxing. However, these contests disappeared from the sports world with the advent of television, due to their extreme length and lack of drama. It was found over the years to be much more profitable when contests were arranged for both length and dramatic effect. For over a century, professional wrestling promoters and performers claimed that the competition was completely real and vehemently defended secrets of the trade (a situation known as kayfabe Any pretense of sporting competition was dropped in the late , when Vince McMahon 's World Wrestling Federation began to frequently describe its events as " sports entertainment ," along with a formal change of moniker to World Wrestling Entertainment .

Conflicting Images of WWE's The Great Khali from U.S. and Indian Cultural Perspectives
Awhile back, former C3 manager Parmesh Shahani sent me a link to an interesting post about World Wrestling Entertainment professional wrestler The Great Khali. Khali, from India, was brought into the WWE because of his abnormal size and was put into the "monster" role that pro wrestling has long cultivated, the scary and intimidating behemoth that other wrestlers fear because of their brute strength. Khali was put into a variety of big matches and even had a run as the heavyweight champion of Smackdown , but this was all complicated by the fact thateven though Khali was an attention-getter with his abnormal sizehis size were a detriment in the athleticism of his wrestling performances. In fact, dedicated wrestling fans in the U.S. regularly dreaded his matches, because of the feeling that he had less wrestling ability than almost any other wrestler on the roster. Many wrestling fans have long resented the fact that less talented performers are brought in and often given big "pushes" as marquee wrestlers because of the visual impressiveness of their size, especially when they take up main event spots that lead to lower-quality pay-per-view wrestling matches and cause more talented athletes to be positioned lower on the card. It's the tension between trying to create dynamics to attract less involved fans and satisfying the most dedicated ones. But this post, from EditIndia, emphasizes that there are often multiple audiences watching products, especially for a bland as global as the WWE, which has found increasing success in pushing its franchise into media markets across the globe.

Professional wrestling is a form of performance entertainment where the participants engage in simulated sporting matches. In its purported rules and competitions, it apes the convention of sport .

For the better part of a century, professional wrestling promoters and performers claimed that the competition was completely real and vehemently defended secrets of the trade (a situation known as kayfabe ).

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation search Professional wrestling is a violent form of entertainment , in which entertainers appear to be having an athletic contest. In actuality, they are performing a script, and the bout nearly always reaches an agreed-upon outcome. It is not a real contest in the manner of sports such as boxing or amateur wrestling , but many bouts take a gruelling toll on the participants' bodies nonetheless. For most of the twentieth century, professional wrestling was portrayed to the viewing public as 'real', often despite featuring laughably outlandish characters and obvious fakery; in this form it could be seen as deceitful and thus inconsistent with Christian values . However, in the present day the overwhelming majority of fans are 'in' on the secret, but still watch in appreciation of the entertainment value, athletic prowess and sometimes humor on display.
History
Professional wrestling got its start on the county fair circuits, where collegiate wrestlers used to put on fights for paying audiences. Eventually, the trade began to develop into a profitable business. With stars now worth millions of dollars, the violence and danger was slowly replaced with theatrical combat, allowing wrestlers to appear multiple times a day and perform several times a week without suffering serious injury.

When some people hear the word wrestling they think of "2 points takedown" or
headgear and singlets. But most people think of the WWF, WCW, NWO, and the
WolfPac. They think of names such as Hollywood Hogan, Sting, Stone Cold, Diamond
Dallas Page, and Golberg. If you have been alive in today's TV culture, you have
undoubtedly heard these names.
