The Most Amazing Thing

August 2, 2020


When I was younger, my brother Steve was obsessed with professional wrestling. He would save all his money so he could watch a special pay per view of Wrestlemania every year, and every Monday night he would tune in for hours (or at least it felt like hours) to see these grown men in elaborate costumes throw each other about a ring all for the glory of getting some fancy belt and a title.

I thought this was ridiculous, even as a little kid. I was concerned with the wellbeing of all the participants but my brother assured me that it was staged. Even though I couldn’t see the point, I couldn’t help but be drawn into the story lines, the rivalries, the choreography, and the drama.
