In simple terms, wresting is a sport that involves two people who attempt to pin one another to the ground—or the mat of a ring. Different styles, rules, and regulations govern sects of wresting. For instance, the rules of amateur matches are much different than the rules of professional matches, which are much different than the rules of street matches. According to Britannica, no sport is older than wresting, even its close cousin, boxing. The art of combat is depicted in works of art from as early as 3000 BCE in places like Babylonia, Egypt, India, China, and Japan. This means that there is a wealth of nuanced styles and techniques for wrestlers to explore, making the sport all the more diverse and captivating.
Building on its ancient backbones, wrestling is incredibly popular today, and just like ancient wrestling, contemporary wrestling is surrounded by controversy. In the case of World Wrestling Entertainment Incorporated (WWE), the formation of the wrestling network hinged upon a disagreement in victors back in 1963. The WWE itself has only been around since 2002, but its real origins are the World-Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF). The WWWF formed the day that Lou Thesz wrestled Buddy Rogers to win the National Wresting Alliance World Heavyweight Championship in Toronto, Canada. Controversies surrounded the match concerning who was the real winner, and a current of opposition refused to recognize Thesz’s win. This divide led to the formation of two large, distinct wresting organizations—the WWF, and the National Wresting Alliance (NWA). In 2002, WWF became WWE. Over the decades, with a strong fan base, they have carved out their spot in the scope of wrestling.
