Is professional wrestling a sport?

Everyone’s gotten into that argument with there friend before. “Is wrestling real?” Now, I’ve been watching it for most of my life and I will say, yes it is real; people enact stunts that inflict bodily harm. However, it is scripted, much like all those “reality” TV shows you watch (Sorry to break it to you). So, the question is now, is it a sport? It involves a great deal of physical aptitude, more than some of the most popular sports around today. The competition on screen is pre-determined but, it doesn’t make the behind the scenes competition any less real, wrestlers having to fight for their position in the company by doing what they do and doing it well. If there is specific criteria for a sport, I’d like to hear it also.
