Default Professional Wrestling: What makes Professional Wrestling different?

'Professional Wrestling is Fake!', 'All Professional Wrestling is are Sweaty men in tiny pants rubbing against each other and to see who can blow more hot air out on a microphone'; Seriously, how is this any different from Let's see. Television, Movies, Novels, Video Games, ect? All Fiction; Guess what NEWS Reporters read off teleprompters, Sports have rules; hell The President has people write speeches for him. What is the difference? I've never gotten this, why does Professional Wrestling has such a global Stigma around it.

To be fair, professional wrestling was represented as a legitimate athletic contest for the majority of its existence.

And, in all but the earliest years, it was a fixed/choreographed sport.

When people discover other sporting events have been fixed such as boxing matches, horse races, athletics.

Peoples good opinion of those events falls rapidly.

The difference between Pro-wrestling and other sports, is that other sports are largely legitimate, with occasional breaches.

And, Pro-wrestling has been presented as legitimate, whilst being fake, all the way through, until relatively recently.
