It's SPORTS entertainment, all the superstars are athletes, they train just like anybody else, and their in ring performance isn't exactly acting, they are PERFORMING.

I can agree that it is not a sport in that it is not really a competition. The matches are roughly scripted, and the outcomes usually predetermined. But, it portrays itself as a sport and you really can't enjoy it as much if you do not let yourself get lost in that illusion a bit.































It walks like a duck, it quacks like a duck, but it is a lot more fun than your average duck.

If some of the other crap out there like gymnastics and cheerleading can be consider a sport then why wouldn't wrestling be!































The guys are putting on a performance but it is an athletic performance, people who say it is like a movie, well, whether it is guys in WWE, TNA, or the indy scene they are busting their asses in front of thousands of people, they don't have stunt doubles, you have to caterogorize pro-wrestling as a sport or at the very least a sporting event!
