Defending Pro-Wrestling

As people flip through the channels on Monday nights they pass over at least two

different professional wrestling shows. When people notice the wrestling the most common thing for them to do is to keep flipping the channels. Why? Because the common view of professional wrestling is that it is not real and it is stupid. Two years ago I thought the same thing about professional wrestling, in fact I refused to watch it. During the summer of my junior year in high school my boyfriend and I made a deal - he would watch The Little Mermaid with me if I would watch wrestling, so I agreed.

Two good examples are Bret Hart and Owen Hart. Bret Hart was performing a move of the top rope and when he landed he broke almost all of his ribs. No one knew he was serious so the show went on. Most people have heard about Owen Hart, who

passed away this year while performing a routine entrance which involved being

lowered from the ceiling, the ropes broke and he plunged to his death. Every Monday night millions of people around the world ...
