Ah, professional wrestling--or sports entertainment, if you want to make yourself sound trendy and intelligent.

It is a world of contradictions, where heavily muscled alpha males threaten each other but try not to actually cause injury in the ring.

Follow Sportskeeda for the latest WWE news, rumors and all other wrestling news.

It is a world where people who aren't wearing pants fight over a belt. It is a world of entertainment, where things might be scripted but definitely doesn't always go according to plan.

Professional wrestlers are consummate performers, able to improvise when things don't always go according to plan.

Of course, sometimes the plan is laid out and the wrestler ends up flubbing something simple or forgets a line. Then there's the time that Triple H spent several very awkward moments searching through a pile of barbed wire 2x4s until he found the harmless 'prop' version...
