Should fun be the goal of wrestling? Should fun be the reason we're even out there? Two ways to ask the same question. On Episode 28 of the Attack Style Wrestling Podcast, Daryl Weber and his brother Lee look back at their own experiences growing up wrestling in Iowa and wrestling at the University of Iowa to determine where the “fun” factor should be within wrestling.
Having fun in wrestling is often attributed to the wrestlers who win big, score points and entertain, but not everyone has that kind of ability, especially right off the bat. Is preaching the “fun” factor a deterrent or should it be harnessed in a different fashion? When kids quit, they used excuses like “it isn't fun anymore.” Is that a product of what they're led to believe the sport is or is it just an excuse to quit when something gets too hard or frustrating?
