actually its about the 2 "sports" in general. Which do you perfer
MMA- authentic fighting in a cage
Pro Wrestling- scripted sometimes rehearsed wrestling in a ring
Pros- The matches are given storylines and wrestlers given charaters to make the experience more exciting. when a wrestler is a heel or "evil" fans tend to hate him so much they often want to see him get his just deserts.
Matches are given gimmicks so you dont see the same thing over and over- Cage ,matches, table matches etc
The wrestlers do things in matches which we wouldnt see in an ordinary fight, but are also quite impressive- top rope maneuvers, amazing if not authentic throws and submissions, sharpshooter, 450 splash etc.
Its not realistic, alot of stuff in the ring wouldnt happen in a real fight and the strylines can be soap operaish.
Pros- Authentic, the guys are actual martial artists using realistic moves.
There are no silly over the top plots involved, just fighting.
Cons- As 1 man once said, realistic isnt neccessarily fun. Many of the more useful moves tend to be dull and some matches can get repetitive. I remember watching a few MMA dvds and was bored outta my mind. Most matches involved 1 guy trying to push the other to the mat and just punch him over and over until the bell rang. Some just ended in a few seconds when a guy got in a lucky punch. One guy actually won by running away from his opponent for abt 3 mins until he kicked at him, then he grabbed his leg , mounted him and punched him over and over til the time ran out.
So what do you think.
