If you aren't watching it, you should ask yourself why not.

Are we talking WWE or, like, Olympic Greco-roman whatsit?

"Pro"-wrestling. Non-Olympic.

If you haven't watched GLOW on Netflix, I recommend it.

Also, I want to be Asuka.

Before Comics Alliance was unfairly shuttered, they maintained an ongoing coverage of pro wrestling.  They argued that it was the closest we would ever get to real life superheroes and supervillains; fights, betrayals, drama etc.  They covered it and treated it with respect and admiration, just like all of their other comic coverage.  It was fascinating.

The WWE is a not-great company, but wrestling itself is wonderful. I recommend everyone put aside preconceptions and give it a try at some point. WWE offers a free month of their network and I'd be happy to make a list of good stuff to watch. There's also federations well outside WWE, like NJPW who are also wonderful.
