Pro wrestling events have been capturing its fans’ attention since broadcasting live on television starting in the 1950s and traveling around the world with exhibitions. Along with the United States (including Las Vegas, pro wrestling is also very popular in Japan and Mexico. There are those who would define it as entertainment based on a portrayal of a combat sport with a storyline. Others would qualify it as a sport much like ultimate fighting. There are rivalries, conflicts and alliances created between the fighters and their camps. Women wrestlers have gained popularity over the decades but the backstory of love, betrayal, redemption and loyalty remain. For the fans of wrestling, Las Vegas is a big market to bring these events for both residents and tourist to enjoy.
