Professional wrestling

Culture theme

Professional wrestling is a form of performance art where the athletes engage in simulated sporting matches.

Alternate name: Pro wrestling

The first video game about Professional wrestling was released in 1984.

THQ, Acclaim and Human has published most of these games

Although this is a performance art, the punches, kicks and such are quite real even if not meant to be truly injuring. Usually the wrestlers have skill in (they're taught to) hitting places or in ways that produce the most bleeding, such as splitting the opponents brow. Blading is the most common type of permanent injury pro wrestlers get.
