What is it with people these days thinking wrestling is for gay or cowboy people? Do you
think wrestling is cool or not cool? I just joined wrestling a couple weeks ago and two
years ago I used to think it was really dumb, but now that I know a lot of moves and
know all the rules. I think it’s pretty cool because there’s this one move that you can flip
the kid over on his back and it’s called the fireman and that was the best move I have
ever seen. The first time I saw it I thought it was the coolest move I have ever seen and
that’s when I started to think wrestling was one of the coolest things ever. Then my
friend joined wrestling and he told me to join because it was really fun, but I didn’t
believe him but I tried it anyway. I told my friend that I will try it one day and if I like it I
will keep doing it, but if I hate it I will not keep doing it and he said ok. Then I just liked
it except sometimes the workouts are hard, but it’s worth it after you win your first match
because you are all pumped and exited.
I hope that wrestling gets noticed more by Latinos and African American and
different races of people so the sport can get more popular and so kids have something to
do so they won’t get in trouble and do bad stuff. Also they can get to know different
kinds of people so they just don’t hang out with only one set of people hat they usually
hang out with. All of this I really believe and I hope all of you out there
really believe this also.
