Professional wrestling is a form of performing art [1] that is intended to look like catch wrestling. Matches are prearranged by the promotion's booking staff and contain choreographed content and scripted outcomes.[2] Its origins date to 19th-century carnival sideshows and music halls, as part of displays of athleticism and strength. Modern professional wrestling usually features striking and grappling techniques, which are modeled after a diverse set of wrestling and pugilistic styles from around the world.
