A sport that involves large amounts of sweat, hard work, and dedication. Not to be confused with "Professional" Wrestling.

Originating back more than 5000 years and refined by the Greeks.

You can play soccer, football, tennis, or basketball...but you can't play wrestling.

Wrestling is not just a sport its a lifestyle...your giving up you social life just to work out 3 times a day. your waking up at 6 to go for a morning 3 mile run. your eating very little if anything. your drinking 8 oz of water a day. your working that hard to go to a meet with almost no fans there just to see who wants to win more. You could be on the basketball team for a season or you can be a wrestler for life.

Wrestling is a sport as old as mankind itself. Since the dawn of time men have been pitted against each other in physical hand-to-hand combat, making this almost certainly the most ancient of Olympic sports. Greeks immortalized wrestling on their coins and first introduced it as an event in their Olympic Games in 776 BCE. Turkish mercenaries taught the Persians the finer points of wrestling during the early middle ages. Dubbed “koresh” its various techniques quickly spread throughout the Islamic nations. Europe and Brittany modified these early forms of wrestling to suit their own preferences of the day and Medieval knights even added wrestling to their fighting repertoire. It's a simple concept. Two men or women wrestle until one is declared the winner. Over the years, wrestling techniques have become more sophisticated and generally speaking the winner of any wrestling bout is the person who has the better technique, strength and overall fitness. Wrestling is split into Greco-Roman and Freestyle disciplines. In Freestyle wrestling the competitors have a much greater freedom. They can use not only their arms and bodies, but also their legs and can take a hold of their opponent anywhere that allows them to overpower and gain total control of them.
In Greco-Roman Wrestling, it is strictly forbidden to grasp the opponent below the belt line, or to trip him or to use the legs actively to perform any action. In Free Style wrestling, however, it is permissible to grasp the legs of the opponent, to trip him and to use the legs actively to perform any action. Female wrestling follows the rules of freestyle, forbidding however the Double Nelsons.

Various styles of wrestling for which British Wrestling is the national governing body are:

- Freestyle (Male and Female)

- Greco-Roman (Male)

- Cornish Wrestling

- Cumberland & Westmorland

- Grappling

Perhaps one of the most underappreciated sports, wrestling couldn't be described as anything less than hell. Practices chock-full of cardiovascular and muscular torture to make a soldier cry, terrible weight-cutting that is illegal yet encouraged and respected, and intense, brutal matches all constitute a life-changing experience.
There is wrestling practice everday, and one is only allowed water for dinner after practice. One also, in order to be as strong as possible, must lift weights on their own time, on an empty stomach. Technique is all in the mind, as wrestling is a thinking man's game. When finally match day comes, the fun has only begun...

Wrestlers may be called gay or homo, but they brush off the ignorance with the satisfaction that they are the strongest, toughest, and most disciplined athletes at school.

Wrestling is hell.

The world's toughest sport in which my wrestling coach (former Olympic wrestling coach) joined the military, and then quit.... because it was too easy.

A combat sport with the focus on grappling. You lose weight to get into a lower weight class. You do intense training. But beyond strength, there is skill, coordination, and overall, balance that will make you dominate your opponents. Also, your friends will call wrestling gay. They aren't your friends anymore because you did a fucking one leg throw/slam and broke their neck. But that wasn't enough so you got them in a choke hold. But your coaches said wrestling is what makes men men. He also knows more about wrestling than anyone, except for the people he taught.
Wrestling is great. I love it so much that I'm gonna give my english teacher a TRIPLE LEG TAKEDOWN.

The best, most intense sport ever, and it always will be. Not that bullshit WWE fag wrestling. I'm talking about actual wrestling. Wrestlers work their asses off just for that 6 minute match on the mat. Wrestlers don't get breaks at all, unless you or your opponent is injured, or bleeding. It requires integrity, self-determination, self-motivation, agility, strength, and the ability and the want to go out on that mat and significantly fuck your opponent up. Real wrestlers basically give up their social life just to go hit the weights for their 6 minutes of fame. And so what if you lose? What you do then, is train harder, and work your ass off to make sure that doesn't happen again. Wins don't just come from the crack of your ass, they come from hard-work, dedication, and loyalty.

Most people think it's gay, but that's only because they sport that they do isn't even close to how competitive as wrestling is. They're too afraid to join, and makes them gay. The people who make fun of it are the pussies. And so what if wrestlers have to wear spandex singlets? They can still beat the dick out of you. So watch your mouth around wrestlers, because the next time you'll be moving is when you're on your way to the hospital. So watch what you say.
Poser: "Wrestling is mad gay."
Wrestler: "You want to say that again? Or should I just knock you the fuck out right now?"
