Usually, during the show, there are both regular matches and matches for various champion titles. Some backstage events are an integral part of most wrestling shows.
Wrestling originated in North America and gained wide popularity almost all over the world, especially in Mexico and Japan. After watching television became a common past time around the globe, so did the popularity of wrestling, even more than previous contact sports like boxing. Wrestling has grown to become a very popular form of entertainment with million-dollar performances and multiple established wrestling companies.
Wrestling is based on various martial arts and promotions are still featuring new attack techniques like body slams and submission locks. The ever-changing wrestling style also includes various acrobatic maneuvers. In modern wrestling, the promotions are increasingly resorting to the use of auxiliary items (tables, chairs, and ladders) which add interesting probs not otherwise seen in other forms of fighting like UFC. Wrestling has no officially agreed-upon rule set. Instead, there are certain standards for different organizers. Although, the general principles are similar enough not to confuse spectators. One thing is sure, wrestling is a tough career path. Wrestlers must undergo a lot of training to correctly learn techniques to prevent dangerous injuries.
