Ladies, gentlemen, manatees and hamsters, I'ma talk to you about a little thing called Pro Wrestling. If you don't like that, then fuck you I'm talking anyway. I've been a wrstling fan since I was a little kid. What's not to like? You've got a bunch of big guys beating the crap out of each other and small guys doing all the flippy-doos, mixed with cheesy yet fun stories. You can't go wrong with that. So I'm making this thread to see if I can spread the virtues of the wrestlemens to your hearts Reach out your hand, and you will touch my hand. Let me show you the world of suplexes and powerbombs. CURRENT WRESTLING PROMOTIONS OF NOTE If you think of wrestling, you think of the WWE. The absolute juggernaut of the wrestling world, it is the biggest and most famous of all wrestling promotions and the one I'll talk about most. Has been around since 1952 and is currently owned by the founder's grandson Vince McMahon (a.k.a Vinnie Mac, a.k.a The Higher Power, a.k.a The Genetic Jackhammer.) It does have it's problems though, namely being that if you're not a main eventer, they don't care much about you, and that the writing and storylines can be pretty bad. Still hell good though if you can endure John Cena (fuck Cena) Oh boy, TNA. It tries so hard to be better than the WWE but fails so massively. The #2 wrestling promotion by default, TNA has some good point and many, many bad ones. Despite having so fantastic homegrown young wrestlers on it's roster, it relies too much on old washed up WWE and WCW stars in the hope that it will make them more popular. Somehow, it's storylines tend to be even worse than WWE's, which bogles my mind. But like I said, it does have some great homegrown talent, so you might want to check it out for that. Ring of Honor is one of the top indy feds in wrestling and is pretty much the #3 promotion. St they keep getting. Sadly, I don't watch ROH outside of a few matches but from what I've seen, it's damn good. Again, it has some utterly brilliant wrestlemens on it's roster, but many have jumped ship to the WWE. If there is one complaint I have about ROH, it's that it's production values are terrible. Ye gods, Chikara is so much fun. It's essentially what you get if you mix wrestling with comic books and cartoons. It doesn't take itself seriously, it's mathces manage to be both comedic and fun and quite frankly where else will you find an evil mantis-themed supervillain fight the prince of all goblins?
