For years now I've wondered why the WWE is shown on Sky Sports, after being informed at the age of 10 that it was staged I wondered why it was shown on sports channels (Suppose it should have being obvious when they were wrapping chairs around each others heads!) So, bearing in mind that it is in actual fact staged and presented as a sport should it really be shown on a sports channel? Surely it lowers the "real" fighting sports such as boxing that feature people actually inflicting pain on each other and most of the time deserving their win. Should it be shown on Sky One instead?

In a word no, infact it should all be banned for ever as it's super bent.

It's sports entertainment and the athletes are as physically impressive as any sport, plus it would leave gaping holes in Sky Sports schedule as there's always some wrestling on of some description.

Doesn't really bother me tbh its fairly trivial, if i dont want to watch it i turn it over to another of the several sports channels.

I agree that they are athletes in a sense as I know how much hard work they have to do to get in the condition they are in.

I just think its place should be on an entertainment channel.

They are checked regularly under a wellness program that UEFA and FIFA would do well to copy. Not only does it eliminate the use of performance enhancers it runs cardiovasular checks to make sure your not going to drop dead of a heart attack.

3 strikes and your out policy; 1st strike 30 day suspension, 2nd strike 60 day suspension and 3rd strike your tin tacked.
