Violent but okay

It is not that bad and kids 7 and up should probably know that wrestling is fake.but kinda violent
age 13+


its WRESTLING NOT ballet. there is going to be some violence and some harsh language. they are trying to teach these people about the business and what goes on in and out of the ring. I have watched NXT and the language on there is NO WORSE than on any pg 13 movie out there. I wouldnt let the young kids watch it it probably to intense for anyone younger than say 13. These men and woman are hard working good people, at lot better people top look up to than some of the actor these days.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (17 ):

The series combines the elements of a live event with the drama of a reality series to highlight some of the personality traits and skills WWE wrestlers need in order to be successful on the circuit. It also offers a chance for viewers to see some of today's up-and-coming wrestling talent.

The mentoring offered here may not seem very constructive, but it is consistent with the culture of the wrestling entertainment world. The over-the-top challenges and reactions of their mentors are intended to get the rookies to perform in a way that corresponds with the show's overall style. Wrestling fans will probably find the show a bit tamer than other WWE programs, but still find enough here to be entertained.
