re: Is Pro Wrestling A Sport - lsucoonass on 2/26/15 at 3:29 pmin the older days the matches were more of a worked shoot. which is still common in japan today.
basically the match is fixed but many moves are real.
I forgot to mention farmer burns.
so it hasn't always been a goof or complete goof.
im talking pre ww2 of course.
re: Is Pro Wrestling A Sport - lsucoonass on 2/26/15 at 12:31 pmNo but many of the moves require some degree of athleticism.
In the older days pro wrestling was legit. We are talking frank and Karl gotch, hackenschmidt, Lou thesv etc.
It wasn't until the 80's when it was publicly broadcasted when people doubted the authenticity of it. See dr. Dave Schultz ...
