Professional Wrestling is a specialized and often theatrical version of traditional wrestling between two opponents. Beginning as an entertainment and side show event in carnivals and vaudeville halls, professional wrestling is a billion dollar industry today. As a preforming art, most matches are often scripted, and wrestlers themselves utilize pseudonyms and backstories to create a larger interest from the audience and fans. Similar to wrestling, the general rules include pinning ones opponent or incapacitating an opponent in order to win. Famous professional wrestlers include John Cena, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and The Undertaker.

Who invented professional wrestling?


Pro wrestlers Ed Lewis, Billy Sandow, and Toots Mondt promoted themselves in 1920 causing the first professional wrestling matches. Not until 1930 did the sport become legitimate. Ed, Billy, and Toots paved the way to today’s wrestling and other combat sports seen on television.


Why is pro wrestling popular?

The brute strength, eye candy, flying acrobatic combat, and portrayed characters causes for an entertaining show. Wrestlers aren’t only doing bare fighting, they use other objects; such as chairs, ladders, and stools to beat their opponents.

When did pro wrestling become fake?

During the 1930s, pro wrestling started with its modern theatrics and moved away from its true competition. Although wrestling isn’t necessarily fake, the fighter already knows who will be winning and losing the fight. Tons of practice has been done to give the best possible fight and experience to the fans.
