A lot of people seem to have this fixated idea of what wrestling is and think there is only one right way to do it. That's pretty boring. Due to wrestling's peculiar nature I have often wondered how far the medium could and will go, not so much in the "genres" it will creat in itself but means to express itself. Wrestling is a simulation of a fight. That's a very broad definition. An action movie scene is also a simulation of a fight. We've kind of seen some wrestling TV shows experiment with it (Lucha Underground most famously, maybe Wrestling Society X as well?) but I wouldn't be quick to write off expressing wrestling through unconventional means while still calling it wrestling. And while we (well at least I personally) often equate Worked MMA with wrestling I wonder if we could go even further. What about worked boxing and other single martial art fights? Maybe someone will go all the way and say a work of any kind is pro wrestling in its core sense, even if it is say, an NBA game.
