Closed-Minded Protective Modern Era= isn’t harmful or fatal to life
Wrestling for money Scripted Started out in carnivals (FF) Considered an entertainment industry rather than a sports industry
Millions of fans WWE- over 30 years Hulkamania, etc.
Easy to get caught up in WWE “DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME
Injury inducing and life threatening “We should totally ban WWE for making our kids violent enough to try this” ( )
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)
Severe heart problems Wrestlers tend to become addicted to pain pills Over 100 wrestlers have passed away before the age of 55

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.
.. Have A Nice Day
