Okay i want to thank you Maxine-Stark, for this opportunity. This should be a good debate here, so let's begin...

Of course i will be arguing on why WWE is a sport, and my opponent will be arguing why it isn't a sport. So what a is the requirement for a sport being a sport? The definition is "Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively.
A particular form of this activity.
An activity involving physical exertion and skill that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often undertaken competitively.
An active pastime; recreation"
Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively. Yes WWE is.
A particular form of this activity. Yes....
An activity involving physical exertion and skill that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often undertaken competitively. Yes.....
An active pastime; recreation. Yes...
WWE wrestler can jump, run, being physical with each other, sweat, using skills, balance, using the mind, and team work. All these factor in a being a sport. WWE Wrestler get injury just like wrestler in the Olympics, and in any other sports. You can't get hurt if WWE wrestler not being physical. "Can honestly tell me that NASCAR drivers, golfers, fishing "experts" and bowlers (all events considered sports) are better athletes then professional wrestlers?" No you can't.

"Just because there's a script involved it doesn't take away from the competitive environment of professional wrestling". It doesn't mean there no real competition between the wrestler facing each other or in the locker room. You can ask any member of the WWE, and they will tell you it is extremely competitive in the ring and out.
You going to being up WWE is just entertainment, and you will be right, it is entertaining, just like watching the SuperBowl, or watching the baseball playoffs or any other sporting events. In the later round i could go more in detail on other issues you may have with WWE being a sport.
