Earlier today I wrote an article blasting Pro Wrestling and it's fans. I called wrestling fake, called wrestling fans losers, and said that pro wrestling is not a sport and had no place on this web site.

I want to take this time to apologize.

While my opinion remains that wrestling is not a sport, and quite frankly not entertaining, and does not belong on a web site that is about sports, I should not have called wrestling fans losers.

Wrestling fans are not losers, and I learned that today. They are thoughtful people, who realize what they are watching is fake, and should be applauded for not having the wool pulled over their eyes.

In fact, wrestling fans are so thoughtful, they actually took the time to read my article, despite the fact that the title called them losers before they even had a chance to read it.

The Bleacher Report wrestling fans, the same fans that I labeled losers, helped my article become a featured article on the wrestling page, so that other wrestling fans may see it.

And even after all of that, many of these wrestling fans, who obviously take their entertainment very seriously, took the time to comment on my article, and respond to my comments as well.

I was informed that I had no right to state my opinion, even being told that I had misinterpreted the first amendment. 

Some reviewed my user profile with a fine tooth comb, and read some of my other articles. Some othrs even gave me special new special wrestling names like asshole, douche, and jackass.

There was even a whole new article written about my article, proving that wrestling fans do not lack creativity.

I was so honored that these fans took the time to comment on my article, despite having no reason too, because honestly, why would a wrestling fan care if I like Wrestling or not, that I realized I was wrong in in my initial assessment, that wrestling fans are losers.

So once again, I'd like to appologize for calling wrestling fans losers, especially if you just read another wrestling article from me, thus proving my original point.
