|After writing around 50 articles on the topic wrestling, I figured it is time to give a bit more history and a little more wrestling. Wrestling dates back all the way through the centuries, yet each year it is coming more of Soap as it moves ahead. The Greeks started wrestling, mastering the rings while brawling at the ancient Olympics sporting arenas during 708 BCE. Subsequently, wrestling became the trendy Ancient sport, until a short time ago. Consequently, wrestling during the ancient times was a type of bodily mace, yet the principle was to exploit the body amply without causing harm to the opponent, thus pinning him/her to the mat. Women wrestlers came into the rings later, and by this time, wrestlers were before now causing injury to the adversaries, missing the planned principle.
Today, in the rings we see verbal abuse, violence, sex, and a whole lot more. The women at one time wore one-piece suits while wrestling, yet today they are wearing a lot less. This brings controversy in, since parents are tiring of battling with their children, forcing them to keep away from this Soap. In the rings, women dancers, strippers, and other defilements are stepping in, thus polluted sports.
Wrestling at one time was wholesome sporting event, but nowadays wrestling is solicitation, immorality, low values, violence, retaliation and other problems have moved in the door. At one time wrestlers acted out their scenes on a wrestling matt making it appears that they were actually fighting. What went wrong?
Some of the wrestlers today are even realizing how floozy this sport event is becoming. In fact, one wrestler nearly door down an office with a baseball bat, while screaming out that he was tired of the Soap and crude in the arena. What happened to the old days when wrestling was a sport he charged.
Wrestling then is not a battle of pain, where death and life is the result, i.e. the strategies are to pin down the opponent to gain fame. Thus, the wrestling then must be trained accordingly, as well as having sufficient skills to master his opponent without causing harm. Thus, weakness in the ring would only lead to defeat. Yet today, no skill is involved since many wrestlers are battling verbally.
Children today are finding interest in wrestling, which is leading to violence in the real world. One boy body slammed his sister, killing her and was sentenced by the courts for manslaughter. Yet, this is not the only incident where a child claimed a life while performing tactics he seen in the matches. This goes hand in hand since nowadays violent teens are escalating in numbers with few killing after watching wrestling programs. While the wrestling members will battle, claiming their program is not causing harm, the evidence is escalating showing otherwise. Anyone promoting and selling a product, whether it be entertainment will go to lengths to defend their behaviors. This falls back to denial. Denial is one of the leading problems we face today around the world. Most people claim alcoholics are in denial, however these people will often admit they did wrong or have a problem, while those in the big lights will not.
Wrestling today, is becoming a soap opera. Women are fighting on the screen with some wearing less than a bikini. The women are solicited by the men, and will often fight the men in the rings. Women wrestlers are not making it easy for the real life women enduring abuse. Women fighting men is setting an image that it is ok to hit women, since women are as strong as men are. The fact is women are the weaker vessel of men and for a man to hit a woman makes him less than a man.
