  • The next slide shows some graphic violence from Pro Wrestling that I feel I should put a little warning slide about before showing it.

  • Just a bit of blood but I guess some people would be upset about it.

The fight against banning my stance l.jpg

The Fight Against Banning- My Stance

  • Quite obviously, pro wrestling is displayed as an entertainment that we should all live without. But in reality the stance of banning wrestling is just as senseless as fighting a war for peace. Think about it, once we get rid of wrestling for being dangerous, then we might as well get rid of football, soccer, hockey, surfing, firearm events, rugby, fighting, and every other sport that has death or even injury associated with them. And along with that, we might as well take away the first amendment.

Thank you…
