Psychology common sense

Of course wrestling it’s not what it used to be. I used to watch it back when there was junkyard dog Komodo dragon and ultimate warrior. No it is just total nonsense, Female wrestlers your dress more provocative/ revealing. But to each their own I just know I wouldn’t let my kids watch it until they were at that age to be able to think and process at a more mature level.

How the hell is this show bad?

Its FAKE while the inguries are often real they don't hit each other actually hard they just make it look like that! I'm not just saying that because i'm a wrestling fan i'm saying that because its true pain is part of life and you have to deal with it! also Its PG and there mostly acting.

This title has:

Great messages
