Wrestling Definition

rĕslĭng
noun
A form of sport in which the opponents struggle hand to hand, attempting to throw or force each other to the ground, traditionally without striking blows.
Webster's New World
A sport in which two competitors attempt to unbalance, control, or immobilize each other by various holds and maneuvers.
American Heritage

A professional tumbling act that emulates the sport of wrestling. Also called "professional wrestling". It is distinguished from sport wrestling -- which has strict internationally recognized rules and is conducted on a mat -- by being scripted, rehearsed, conducted in a boxing ring rather than on a mat, and programmed as entertainment.
