Is amateur wrestling fake like WWE?

WWE is considered sports "entertainment". The company includes scripted storylines, segments and pre-determined matches. The wrestling is for the most part fake, but they make it look real as much as possible. However that doesn't mean the wrestlers don't get hurt, injured or bloodied by mistake. Amateur Wrestling is 100% real, and much different than the pro-wrestling business like WWE. No highflying moves, or kicks or punches. Amateur Wrestling is more of a mat-style wrestling that is really competitive, going for submissions and locks on your opponent.

How is amateur wrestling and professional wrestling alike?

This is my answer to help youAmateur wrestling and professional wrestling is not alike at all. One reason why is in professional wrestling they don't really hit and if you're wondering how they don't get hit they make it look real so people get interested. Also the tables are cardboard and the ladders are plastic but the only thing that is real is the barricade. And in amateur wrestling they mostly roll around trying to pin their opponent that's why they only punch momentarily. Oh i almost forgot the barricade is the only thing that is real because the fans aren't allowed to interfere in the match. Plus the floor is paddedFlranger458's answer:Professional and Amateur wrestling have their similarities......although in most am. wrestling is unpaid in pro they're paid.In am. wres. they are first starting and getting used to pro.wrestling.
