    Yet another sighting of utter stupidity:

    The news showed some footage of some kids doing pro wrestling moves, like dropping a guy on his head, and to top it off, they poured some alcohol on a kid and set fire to the kid, and then to fan the fires out, one of the "brighter" kids used a folding chairs and whaled on the kid on flames in a lame attempt to put out the flames. The kid on fire did suffer some severe burns on his body. The kid who set him on fire was a dull wit.

    What the hell is wrong with these kids?

    Dont know but these people/kids are completely insane and should be left to do their thing IMO. I mean its like following in the footsteps of all the other Darwin award winners (which they will probably become) they should just be allowed to eliminate themselves from the gene pool. Whats really sad is that Wrestling is blamed for this, its a form of entertainment that in some ways is starting to go a little overboard.

    Yes, this is the whole backyard wrestling phenomenon

    Really what it is are a bunch of morons who don't know what they're doing giving wrestling a bad name. Afa the Wild Samoan, who runs one of the best training schools in the biz has even started offering free lessons on how to "bump", or land properly in an attempt to at least reduce the number of injuries these kids suffer.

    When I backyard wrestled, not one chairshot, no nothing. We learned how to do it right, and no one got hurt. One of the guys went to Afa's school and now wrestles professionally. Any pro will tell you, go to a school, learn to do it right. No real company will take you with only backyard credentials

    In the end, wrestling is nothing more than men in their underwear trying to hold the other one on the floor. And now people want to see kids do it? How sick!
