i allready have my ticket to that event booked so i dont need this contest, plus this game sucks compared to previous games so no doubt some glitching lil idiot will win using some cheap move or something.

Guys stop flaming and just shut the fuck up. There's plenty of people who enjoy wrestling for the athletics and entertaining storylines.

"wrestling is literally gay"

Really? Thanks for the headline.

wrestling is fake, and set up. I may get the game to check it out, but the actual sport is fake.
