Wrestling Nuts and Guts
Wrestling is not for the meek; it is rather an indulgence for the nutty geek. It takes a lot of courage to be in a pit with a strong and determined opponent who will hoist you into the air and smash you down like a load of dirty linen. Would you fancy subjecting yourself to such a treatment from a fellow human being? I would rather spend a night in a cave with a polar bear than venture onto a wrestling mat to confront a bloodthirsty wrestler. I have wrestled with intimidating problems in life but never took a fancy to doing the jostling and cuddling variety of the sport.
I have seen kids go crazy watching their favorite WWF heroes performing on WWF contests on TV. These ruffians seem indestructible as they pound and pummel each other in the arena. Every kid has a chosen horde of heroes whose names he rattles with greater familiarity than he would do of his classmates. These kids also play intense card games based on wrestler profiles and points, using a pack of cards that have pictures of gigantic, scary and villainous looking wrestlers.
Take a peek at the “Wrestling Rumor” Sites and you will also find female wrestlers there. Hard to believe how the fairer sex got inducted into this unfeeling sport. Strange are the ways of the world, isn’t it. Imagine a woman, whom we generally consider as an embodiment of love and affection, raining blows on another woman and making life-threatening gestures in the ring. Well seems really anachronistic and nether worldly.
To top it all “Wrestling Rumors” spawns a multi billion-dollar industry that thrives on these kinds of hackneyed fancies leaving one wondering if we have run out of saner ideas or means to keep humans entertained?
