Sunday Mornings with the Nitro- 5/22/2022

Paul” The Nitro” Skivers

Welcome to another edition of Sunday Mornings with the Nitro and thanks for joining us. Today, I want to focus on the biggest feud in pro wrestling and it has been going on for a very long time. Most recently, this feud was illustrated with not only the Sasha Banks/Naomi walking out of the WWE this Monday Night, as well as the promo and feud between the Jericho Appreciation Society and the combo of the Blackpool Fight Club, Eddie Kingston and Santana and Ortiz. The feud that I am mentioning is between Sports Entertainment and Pro Wrestling. Let me explain what this feud is all about.

The feud has been around since the 1930’s when a book called Fall Guys: Barnum’s of Bounce released in the thirties pulled the curtain on the double-crossing tactics of the promoting trio called the Gold Dust Trio led by Toots Mondt. Ever since then, the feud reared its ugly head on multiple occasions and especially when trying to define pro wrestling as a sport against others who think it is “Fake”. So, it is no surprise to me that this is coming up again. So to better understand this feud, let us look at both sides of the feud and explain what these particular fans believe in and we start with Sports Entertainment.

Sports Entertainment are fans that believe that matches are pre-determined and that all the moves in the ring are choregraphed and the wrestlers are working together to put on an “exhibition”. They also know the inner workings behind the scenes and let others know that pro wrestling is “fake”, and the winners are determined by a “producer” A good example of this is the WWE Universe meaning those fans that shill the product to the world and proclaim other organizations like AEW as second rate.

Oth the other side of the feud is the Pro Wrestling fan. These are the fans that may know the inner workings of the business, but they keep it to themselves and show respect to the wrestlers as highly trained professional athletes. Also, the level of danger in the moves and how they are applied are respected by the fans and therefore they do not try these moves at home. Finally, they cheer for whoever they cheer and for who they want to boo and just enjoy the show.

In closing, this feud will never be over as long as these two sides continue to exist. So, I say that if a fan wants to be a fan of Sports Entertainment, then that is fine and vice versa for the pro wrestling fan. Let us hope that this feud does not get out of control, and something happens. Let us all enjoy Pro Wrestling the way that we want to enjoy it and have fun. With that being said, that will end this edition of Sunday Mornings with the Nitro. Thanks for joining us and we will see you next Sunday. Have a great week everyone.
