Default Language-based problems among wrestling fans?

"Who is better? This wrestler or that wrestler?""Such and such wrestler sucks because of 'x' reason(s).""This wrestler is overrated. WWE should do this because it's the best decision etc."































Confusion in language, like when people say words like better, bury, overrated, etc. causes arguments within the IWC because people have different notions of what they mean. Many of them seem to aim to establish some sort of objective truth using fuzzy language and even so, any 'objective' truth about pro wrestling in a way can be reduced back to some form subjectivism.































My main question: Why do wrestling fans try to seek objectivity using poor use of language, when most of these things or debates are usually opinions?

IWC "Smarks" think they know the business just as well as the promoters out there. They like to predict what the company will do next, which wrestler they'll push and who is "rightfully" entitled to be the champion, almost as if they are in a board room meeting. As you might expect, they don't even know the proper definition of some of these words and how to even apply them.































While the internet has given us the ability to communicate our ideas with a huge base of wrestling fans, it has also given rise to many negativity. I'd say this is one of the.

People are from different countries and words mean diff things. US, UK, Australia and India all use a lot of diff words from each other.
