Professional wrestling is a form of success wrestling. Unlike competitions, it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose in professional wrestling, because winning or losing is decided by the scriptwriter (called “booker”).
But the “booker” just determines who’s going to win and how to win. If “Booker” decides that “Superstar” A will clearly win “Superstar” B, or win by cheating, or someone to help …
Every wrestler is called a “superstar,” the female is called a “diva.” Wrestlers all have a way to end the game, like John Cena with AA (Attitude Adjustment) or Shawn Michaels with “SCM” (Sweet Chin Music).

These movements sometimes appear invincible, but when struck, the wrestlers use tricks to shield the opponent from injury. When a professional wrestler pretends to be in pain after he’s hit, he ‘s called a “sell a move.”

While sports such as boxing, athletes practice skills that cause harm to each other, professional wrestlers practice skills that help each other and protect each other during performance to avoid injury.
Wrestlers who have signed with a company may have tales to “clash” with each other. The “conflict” between the “superstar” A and the “superstar” B will continue for a few weeks, if it is admired by the audience. Usually in normal shows, they use this time to build up a conflict for more excitement, then there will be a big show match (called “Pay Per View”).
But even though it’s an act, American wrestling also gives us a sense of charm and suspense, making the viewer feel like watching a long action movie with exciting details …
