Wrestling is one of the oldest forms of combat sport. The origins of wrestling go back 15,000 years from cave paintings in France. Wrestling only became well known in ancient Greece, during the Olympics, where men competed naked for victory. It was not known why the contestants started to compete naked, but one theory is that athletes wanted to copy Orsippos of Megara, a runner who won a footrace at Olympia in 720 BC after losing his loincloth.

Perth will soon be the venue for world class wrestlers such as John Cena, Ryback, Roman Reigns and many more. I can assure, they will NOT be wrestling naked.

Unlike the Olympia era of 720 BC, women are more than welcome to watch this sporting event which is part of the World Raw Tour.

While I am sure you will be entertained with action, probably very few of the Ancient Greece wrestling rules will apply. During Ancient Greece wrestlers were allowed to break fingers and to bite their opponent. However, they were not allowed to gouge out eyes or intentional kick or hit their opponent. If they did, they were punished by immediate whipping by the referee until the undesirable behaviour stopped.

Wrestling is definitely a form of entertainment as an "act" is portrayed inside the ring. Often this is a result of a "hero" against a "villain" much like what the Gladiators, however it is not fight to the death!
