There are certainly many dangerous stunts involved in wrestling but it is staged and for the most part safe. The only wrestling that is all real is the type we played in highschool.
Well the one things that nobody can ever convince me of is that these wrestlers are not athletes. They are, and they are very talented. You do have to recognize that they are a bit of actors, which is fine, but they are certainly performing athletic moves and you have to be very skilled and a hard worker to become a professional wrestler. They are professionals, in every way. I do not watch much anymore, but I used to a lot, and it was entertaining....which is the point.
