It’s derided as a cultural skidmark, a lowbrow circus of steroid freaks in their undies pretending to hit each other. And yet, it has sustained as a viable attraction for over 100 years, bringing in enormous crowds and pay-per-view buyrates. It’s a mad and wacky world, and here’s a few signs you might be one of us.
