YOU vs WWE Wrestler – Could You Defeat Him or Her?
What if you found yourself in a ring with a WWE fighter? What would you do? Would you be able to defeat him or her? Would the WWE Champion defeat you without even trying? In today’s educational animated cartoon, we’re going to look at what WWE is, who competes, what the competitions are and how you match against them.
We’ve all seen them on TV- muscle bound men and women taking to a ring in an elaborate display of physical skill and over dramatic acting, all to the roars of a cheering crowd. But how much of the ensuing fight is real, and how much of it is just carefully coordinated stunts? Are professional wrestlers real-life modern gladiators, or just pumped up stage actors? Hello and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show – today we’re asking: You vs a WWE fighter- could you defeat a wrestler?
The WWE was founded in 1952 by Jess McMahon and Toots Mondt as Capitol Wrestling Corporation. Originally a boxing and wrestling promotion company, CWC quickly began to grow into its own entity and eventually became the World Wide Wrestling Federation, or WWWF, then the World Wrestling Federation, or WWF, until finally becoming World Wrestling Entertainment in 2002. Today it is the largest professional wrestling company in the world and airs its programs in more than 150 countries, with 12 pay-per-view events a year and 230 live events a year throughout the world. In 2014 it even launched the first ever 24/7 streaming network which showcases the entire WWE video library.
Dubbed ‘sports entertainment’ for its highly orchestrated storylines and pre-rehearsed matches, professional wrestling nonetheless is a grueling and challenging career that takes top strength and stamina both. If you’re going to go up against a professional wrestler, forget what you’ve heard from your friends about wrestling being fake- the moves may be highly orchestrated, but you’re still going up against one of the strongest and most agile professional athletes in the world. Once described as requiring the grace of ballet performers with the strength of powerlifters, professional wrestlers are in peak physical condition, with daily routines that include total body strength training exercises and intense cardio training. Their live are so intense and their performance schedules so packed that they are the only professional sport without an ‘off season’.
