    Ok, maybe I wasn't very clear. People love violent entertainment, like violent movies, boxing or MMA. However, actors, boxers and MMA fighters do nothing but their thing for money. Its their career.

    Wrestling is a sport that can be done by a future CEO, Senator or President or just your regular workers in the community. It is done as a form of education in schools.

    Nietzsche would say while entertainment is appealing to society even if its violent, society does not want people in its community practicing violent sports in MASS NUMBERS.

They need to be ridiculed like by equaling them to gays for example.

    This is all due to the decay of society as it loses its raw and natural instincts. Society is becoming weak.

    Again, this is all as per Nietzsche!
    IT'S A JOKE, BIG! No need to bring Nietzsche into it.

    My little fourth grader 73 pounder might think men shouldn't wrestle. Mind you; he was much younger, wrestling Middle School, and is stud in his own age group. But during the year he gets hammered by Reni in practice everyday. Gets Caroline Cotton (google her) in a tournament. And gets another tough girl who hammered him as well. We tease him by asking; "who are the best wrestlers?" He says, "girls".
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.
