A-Z of Wrestling Moves

Workhorse Fitness Performance Center Moves

“You call it wrestling, they term is ‘Working’ … As Shakespeare once said: ‘A rose by any other name,’ etc.” So Marcus Griffin began his groundbreaking 1937 book on the Ins & Outs of the Pro Wrestling Business, Fall Guys: The Barnums of Bounce. It’s a good place to start, because any discussion of the grunt-and-groaners (as Griffin would call them) inevitably involves an examination of the artifice that undergirds the endeavor, and that artifice — be it the Antediluvian Secret that the whole show is a put-on, or the modern-day pretense that both Actors & Audience interact as if it’s Legitimate — is itself bolstered by an intricate, seemingly Inane Vocabulary of Lingo, Idiom & Jargon.
