I know what you mean, but that doesn't change the fact that wrestling does have rules within of its written parts. Such as pinning shoulders down for three count, and that grabbing the rope forces your opponent out of a submission. Keep in mind wrestling is based off of Greco-Roman wrestling, profesional or not.

Btw, quotation marks aren't used for parenthesis. They are used for speech, quotation, and irony. Things used for parenthesis are brackets, dashes and commas. Also short sentences, lists, exclamations - these can also be used.
For the third time I will expain what I wrote again. A series like lost is scripted, but that does not make a soap opera now does it? Nor does having drama instantly make something a soap opera. I really wish people who complain about wrestling would have more creative reasons than either.
It is scripted, so it can be considered more like a soap-opera than a sport.
A) Wrestling gay and its just sweaty guys wrestling each other
B) Wrestling is a soap opera.
C) Wrestling is fake and MMA rules!
A shell of what it once was? Need I remind you that despite what you remember of The Rock and Stone cold(who weren't exactly the greatest athletes), the attitude era had FAR worse things than what happens now. I mean, scotty too hotty, grand master sexy, Al Snow(he was decent, but still), and many more people are what cause people to demean wrestling to what most people think of it as, something that is all drama. Every person on that list could really only cut a promo, and they were lucky since the writers gave them good material.
Yea okay, WWE is a shell of what it was even as much as 4 years ago, but TNA isn't any better. They always somehow find a way to ruin everything they do that seems good.
ROH is where it's at, but of course I don't get any of that here.
I mean, look at how people like Road Dogg go to TNA as "BG James", and the second they get crappy material to use you realize they have no talent what so ever.
I've watched PWG, but not ROH. So I can sort of comment on it a bit as they are pretty similar. I would say no matter how good their wrestling is though, every wrestler knows they have to go to TNA or WWE to make it big. Just look at Nigel Mcguiness and Bryan Danielson, both left for TNA and WWE respectively, and they are some of the most well know wrestlers in the world(outside of japan I suppose).
