just like circus performers, or ballet dancers, despite their superb athleticism, are not sportsmen, neither are WWE wrestlers.


And yet one of them won the UFC world title.

Seriously, how are you struggling with this?

Brock Lesnar is a superb athlete and did well to with the UFC Heavyweight title. Nobody is doubting that wrestlers are superb athletes, but the fact that he went into a sport like MMA doesn't make wrestling a sport.

Same here, but here goes anyway.

WWE wrestling is scripted. Anything with a script is theatre. Theatre isn't a sport.

No it isn't. Its no more a sport than ballet.

I think tbh the brutal truth is that anyone who is simple enough to watch it will never understand the complexities of this point. Not that its even complicated.

Lol. You clearly know little about it.

It's sports entertainment. That's what they themselves claim to be and that's what they are. End of.
