10 Pointless Acts Of Wrestling Bravery That Were Totally Forgotten

Discretion really is the better part of valour.


Just to even be a professional wrestler requires an incredible amount of bravery.

Ignoring some of the less obvious pitfalls of the job, merely the idea of falling on a hard surface on your back, front, head, or legs is enough to steer most people away from 'Sports Entertainment' as a career choice.

Wrestlers talk of harrowing first training sessions, where endless repetition of a basic back bump left them feeling physically broken, partially concussed, and sick for several days hence.

And yet they persist. Some may call it stupid, or psychopathic, but if you're reading this, you're likely to consider it pretty noble, and undoubtedly brave.

However, sometimes wrestlers choose to extend their reach beyond the powerslams, armdrags, and irish whips that make up a normal match.

Chasing a memory to last a lifetime or a moment to hang their hat on, wrestlers will take even greater risks to entertain.

But with so much content available in the modern era, it's far to easy for some of these moments to criminally slip under the radar or out of the minds of viewers who still crave the next big spot.

Without that validation, the bumps, bruises, and broken bones are all for naught. So with that in mind, here are 10 pointless acts of wrestling bravery that were totally forgotten.
