You get to travel, make very decent money, you'll be in shape, you have fans cheering for you, have awesome moments like WrestleMania, i'd be a wrestler in a heartbeat!

Go watch the movie The Wrestler to see how wonderful it would be to be one of those guys.

? If you were smart and invested your money while you were young so that you could get out before you were over the hill it would be. But you would have to have the passion, connections, and talent behind you or you would end up jobbing for 20 years.

If the only commitment you have is being a wrestler, then yes. However, if you want to have a family, and stay in one place, then no. Its pretty tough on the person. Sometimes, the pain is unbearable, and the fans will always remember you for you gimmick, not you. So it is stardom, but at a price.































If you want other thoughts, yes, that movie, the wrestler is a great example of it being bad. He had a family that he abandoned for his job, resort to drugs cause of the pain, and is only known as his persona.































However, its never truly bad. it really depends on how you balance your life. I probably told this to like 5 different people in the wrestling section already, but read Jericho's book, A lion's tale: Around the world in Spandex. To me, that book is the definition of dreams come true in the wrestling business. Jericho wrote the book from personal experience so I think you'd like it. Mick Foley wrote some books too. Might want to look at that. It good because it proves that when your in the buisness, you do form a type of family inside the buisness apart from you actually family.
