I've never watched it on tv or live. Doesn't interest me at all. Why would I want to watch big bulky guys jumping on top of teach other, twisting their legs, and shouting verbal abuse to act all macho?
Yes, my friend was an amateur wrestler years ago and I had the pleasure of
seeing him perform at the Royal Easter Show one year. I didn't think I would be into it because I thought it would be a bunch of guys just fighting, but they have
charachters and costumes and a loosely followed script and it was a lot for fun than I had expected.
I went to see the WWE when they were in Sydney once. A lot of the big name stars were there, so it was good to see these guys perform live. I think they teach good wholesome family values, such as violence is the answer to everything...
My Dad used to take me to Boxing matches, when I was a kid. The top Referee was a family friend. In those days' ('50's), there'd be a movie on afterwards, for all the kids' to watch!
I enjoyed going anywhere with my Dad; he just knew SO many people. He owned his own business, & I was very proud of him to be MY Dad!
