Professional wrestling is a form of entertainment where the participants engage in simulated wrestling matches for means of entertainment. In its purported rules and competitions, it apes the convention of sport. During its earlier history, professional wrestling promoters and performers claimed that the competition was real, and varying fractions of the audience have believed this to be the case (a situation known as kayfabe). Any pretence to be a sporting competition was dropped in the 1990s, when Vince McMahon's WWF wrestling organisation began describing its events as "sports entertainment".
