With the news that ESPN are doing a weekly segment on WWE comes the age old 'but wrestling isn't a sport' argument. Well i'd argue that it just might be. Here's the definition of 'sport' 'an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.' we can all agree that wrestling is an activity involving physical exertion and that it involves an individual or team and is for other entertainment right? The issue is always the 'competes against' portion. But what about the competition that goes on for a spot on the show? With Zac Ryders web show, random twitter wars or superstars trying to get more followers than another to boost their stock in the company, one could make the argument that they are competing. If that's too much of a tertiary thing for you, what about matches and Promos where the superstars compete every single week to get the bigger reaction form the crowd, good or bad reaction i might add. So whilst the fighting portion the show is scripted for the most part, they are still competing against each other for the approval of the fans. Lets look at some other sports for a moment, Darts, Pool, Shooting, Bowls amongst others. They don't use much, if any real physical exertion but are classed as sports because of their high competitive nature. So this means that whilst the competition is high, the physical element is low which is of course the opposite of wrestling. So maybe lets stop taking crap from fans of other 'sports' and start standing up for the fact that whilst scripted, wrestling is, at least by definition, very much a sport.
