It depends.

If the wrestling is taking place in front of tens of thousands of fans = NOT COOL

If the wrestling is taking place in a crumbling school gym in front of 12 people = VERY COOL

Pro Wrestling=NOT COOL

GAP commercial models singing gay pop songs=VERY COOL

Yeah, its not cool.

It seriously is something I don't talk with my family about because they don't get it.

Well, they were very understanding when you told them you were gay. I suppose this might be a step too far.

Did your parents disown you when you told them that The Chaperone was your favorite movie of all time?

It was probably when they found out he listens to Glenn Beck.

haha, that chaperone comeback is awesome.

I think I once tried to explain why I liked ROH to my dad. Without WWE, I think stuff like Ring of Honor and other indy wrestling would just be niche hobbies. But, with WWE out there, it kind of sucks always having to start a convo about it with "no, it's NOTHING like WWE." And you end up defending it when compared to WWE more than just saying why you like it.

Wrestling hasn't been cool for 11 years. With the way WWE and TNA are going, wrestling is pretty much going to be a niche hobby before too long.

I imagine you are more a fan of 'That's what I Am'

It must speak to you considering what you went through at school
