Default Why is the WWE called wrestling?

The WWE is not even close to wrestling, except maybe the pin. I'm not trying to criticize WWE here, I just want make a point and hear other's opinions. I think it's a disgrace and an insult to REAL wrestlers for this pre-determined entertainment to be considered wrestling. It's like if they made a dramatic pre-determined fighting show with random steel chairs like WWE and they called it Martial Arts, the martial art fans would be offended and insulted. In my opinion, it really ruins the integrity and popularity of REAL WRESTLING. And sure, real wrestling may be boring to watch but that's only because you don't know the sport.

Actually they get offended if you call them a wrestling company, because they make movies and stuff like that.

Because it's WWE, it;s for entertainment more than anything. If I wanted to just watch plain old wrestling I watched all those other independent circuits with no storylines but that would be boring to me. I like entertainment, I watch TV for entertainment I watch wrestling for entertainment, did you forget that WWE stands for world wrestling entertainment? Of was your head so far up your @ss you couldn't see anything? Yeah I thought so. If you don't like something, fine that's cool for you but don't complain or dictate to the people who do like it. It's rude and annoying and we heard it all before, don't like it don't watch it and don't go on sites and forums that are about it. Simple as that.

they dont want to be known as just wrestling, they want to be known as a variety entertainment show that ventures into different projects such as movies, music, gaming, tv, charity work, media and other things.















of course wrestling will always be at the core of wwe, i disagree with its a disgrace to the wrestlers though as they have a chance of doing different projects which i feel would be refreshing than just wrestling every night.















wrestling like mma is a business, its all a work and its very clever how they run it. dana white as jim cornette has said many times before has taken the wrestling business and made something of his own which is very popular among many people.

its still wrestling nonetheless, dont say anything I was in wrestling half my life competed in many events won a few local tournaments so I know about wrestling as for the Wwe wrestling I would say that it is still wrestling what they do with the moves they perform and whatnot. An insult? really? its not insulting me or my buddies who were also on the wrestling team so speak for yourself don't come on here and ask such dumb question when obviously it is you who knows nothing of the sport
