1. because obviously its scripted so there's guys who aren't really that good but they still get mentioned cuz the script called for them to win all the time
2. because its COMPLETELY changed since the early days. At least basketball still has the same basic idea, but wrestling went from a 99% technical show that was seen as real to "sports entertainment" which is now 70% soap opera and 30% actual wrestling (and of that 30% only like 5 is actual WRESTLING, while the rest is stunts)
3. because of what is allowed now. Like back in the day someone couldn't do the things that made Austin entertaining to us, and they werent on TV to become the icons that Hogan and Rock are
I mostly just stuck to the modern era of what we call pro wrestling (80s-present)
