Default Is pro wrestling a sport or is it just scripted drama entertainment?

I know that wrestling is scripted and everything you see is just a work that has been written days or even weeks in advance. I know that whenever a performer is fired on TV that it is not legitimate and that the entire wrestling industry is storyline driven. But is that all it is? Is wrestling nothing more than drama in the same league as soap operas where behind the scenes everyone is just an actor and that they all act like they are mortal enemies in front of the camera but then are the best of friends in real life? Or is it a legitimate athletic competition?

Well some of them are friends behind the scenes and some are not. Like Brock and Rock back in 2003 were really good friends and they are still good friends till this date. And there are best friendships like Randy Ortan and Chris Masters are best friends. That is why Chris Masters got a second chance back in 2010 because of Randy. Another best friendship is between HHH HBK these two are like brothers. Then Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg are good friends (As told in Brock's Book) and many more...































And then there are real life feuds too like Bret Hart and HBK back in 1997 during the whole Montreal screw job which is 100% REAL no scripts.































Bottom line there are real friends, real enemies, real fights, real love relationships too here are some















- The Miz Maryse















- John Morrison Melina

There is a some sport to it.. while it isnt always prevailent.. you have to be athletic enough to make it in the WWE.. but its much more entertainment then sport for certian.. which is why its Sports entertainment and not just a sport.

I would say the later with athleticism being evolved as well as being live much like a theoretical play.
