1I have never understood why there is so many followers of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). 2At first, I thought the fans who watched wrestling on television was crazy if they believed that the matches were real. 3One of these fans happen to be engaged to my daughter, so I asked Anthony to explain why WWE is so popular. (4From childhood, his friends and he was so caught up in the wrestling frenzy that they would even hold wrestling shows in their backyards. 5In fact, a few friends, for Anthony’s 28th birthday, plans to host a party with a wrestling theme and even some friendly competitions.) 6According to Anthony, it is the E in WWE that tell the whole story. 7Fans of wrestling sees spectacular moves and athleticism. 8They understand there is a scripted storyline (like soap operas), and each of them enjoy learning as much as possible about favorite wrestling superstars. 9Finally, anybody who watches the matches know that some of the moves are rehearsed, like fight scenes in movies. 10So I now realize that wrestling fanatics, like Anthony, is not crazy; they’re just looking for a good time, an amusing storyline, and a few hours of pure entertainment.
