The next slide shows some graphic violence from Pro Wrestling that I feel I should put a little warning slide about before showing it. Just a bit of blood but I guess some people would be upset about it.
‘Roid Rage= severe anger due to the drugs affecting the hormones of the body Huge appearance Speeds the heart up “While the outcomes of the matches are pre- determined, the effort to put on those matches takes a huge toll on their bodies” (Cohen, Wrestling)
Pro Wrestlers Hundreds of wrestling-related deaths Parents Protect their children Eradicate this dangerous sport
Quite obviously, pro wrestling is displayed as an entertainment that we should all live without. But in reality the stance of banning wrestling is just as senseless as fighting a war for peace. Think about it, once we get rid of wrestling for being dangerous, then we might as well get rid of football, soccer, hockey, surfing, firearm events, rugby, fighting, and every other sport that has death or even injury associated with them. And along with that, we might as well take away the first amendment.
