In the year 2150 all major sports have been replaced by Professional Wrestling. No longer the campy action-adventure/soap opera it was at the turn of the millennium, Pro-Wrestling has evolved. It is an ultra-violent bloodsport where victory means celebrity, power and fortune and losing means embarrassment, dishonor, and in many cases, death. Earth is now treated with respect by the other planets for being the world where this universally popular sport originated. Beings from all over the galaxy come to Earth to test their mettle against each other, and against the Earth's seemingly unlimited supply of genetically engineered super-wrestlers. Carried on 2702 channels and broadcast in over 30,000 languages, wrestling has become the obsession of an entire galaxy! Here we see Klarthax the Destroyer seconds before decapitating Captain Destiny with a quick twist of his scaly hands. Although fairly mundane by the standards of the time, the finisher receives a large pop from the crowd as Klarthax wins the Interplanetary Wrestling Alliance's Galactic Title Belt.

-.- ha...It's just hilarious when people crack about wrestling...don't you people get sick of it?

:-) John M Prinkey replies: "Sick of what exactly, wrestling or making fun of wrestling? Actually I love wrestling. It's the most shameless form of entertainment in the world. There is nothing they won't do to keep you glued to your TV set every Monday night, no matter how trashy, over-the-top or just plain ridiculous they have to get. It's like a weekly Micheal Bay movie. And as for making fun of it, this is a media that practically offers itself up for ridicule. Two (or more) grown men in spandex pretending to beat each other around a padded square of plywood surrounded by elastic bands, no matter how fun to watch, is really silly. But then there's the lingerie matches......."

Well, I like Professional Wrestling, but in all the Sci Fi stories I've read in books or saw in movies or TV, it's the first time Earth earned respect from the rest of the galaxy for inventing Pro Wrestling!

20 John M Prinkey replies: "And why not? It's about time the rest of the galaxy recognized Earth for its many important inventions. Where would this universe be without breast-enlargement surgery and aerosol cheese-in-a-can?"
