If you'd asked me a year ago about sports entertainment, WWE or wrestling, I would have laughed and probably said: "Do I look like someone who would like wrestling?". I remember it being on Sky when I was little but I went to an all girls school, and wresting never took off with Yo-yos and Pokemon coming out on top. By the time I was a teenager it was something I never heard about, it had passed me by completely and I didn't care.
In 2006 I met Ryan and as a wrestling fan he would often get me to play the latest Smackdown vs. Raw game on Xbox and I would say yes and lose terribly, which wasn't really the best tactic for getting me to like it. Then, earlier this year when me and Ryan were living with his parents out of one room he bought a wrestling DVD and although I wasn't interested he let me watch Gossip Girl so I let him watch wrestling - fair deal, no?
'Starship Pain', do you?
The moves are only part of it though, the story lines are just like watching any television drama, but it's on twice a week and it also involves a lot of pyrotechnics - are you still completely disinterested? To put it simply, it's a whole lot of fun, and as the name suggests, it's really entertaining, and I'm really not ashamed to say I love it. What's more, it's also something me and Ryan can watch every week and be excited for together, and I love that we have another thing in common that we didn't realise we did for four years.
What are your thoughts on wrestling and the WWE? Are you new to wrestling like me? Feel free to leave me a comment!
