Agreed mos of the wrestlers today look like bodybuilders the days of dusty roads are long gone
Wow, he looks like a different man. I guess you can probably say that about a lot of these guys though. I am still amazed that the Undertaker is still around and doing his thing, so I bet when he was in his prime he was probably something to be desired. As much guff as the sport gets for being fake or rigged, you cannot dispute the fact that these are professional athletes with great bodies. Interesting stuff, and thanks for sharing.
WWE is just a soap opera more than anything now, and as with soap operas, it needs to have a cast that people think are good to look at. Real wrestling like it used to be wouldn't get the amount of viewers that WWE gets, and one of the reasons for that is because of the wrestlers and how they look these days. All show and no substance is a phrase that's often been aimed at WWE so I don't think it comes as any surprise that the wrestlers seem to be more concerned with how they look more than the actual sport.
What is wrestling without the muscles? The spectators want to see the muscles banging each other, thatís the spectacle of WWE now. Thatís why I wonder how CM Punk became a wrestler when he didnít have those bulging muscles of a popular wrestler. Iíd say without the muscle, a wrestler is not that exciting even if he is so good in the ring. By the way, Brock Lesnar is also an attraction in UFC, the premiere MMA league. Not only because of his unusually big muscles but also because of his MMA skills. He was champion before.
