Just like the stages of development in the human race, professional wrestling has its stages of “fandom”. Certainly enough, “fandom” is a word I just created. For some it begins at a young age of adolescence, in which life means close to nothing to you.
It is as if the world looks like one big area to roam and dream. Being so young institutes bravery and courage; solely by just walking outside of your preferred sanctuary. Home is home to you, anything beyond that remains a mystery.
Wrestling to most people is that common place of somber and tranquility often desired in life as a whole. Adversity kicks in to high gear; professional wrestling puts them at ease. Whether you are a fan of the superheroes, the underdogs, the big men or the divas, wrestling is as diverse as the world’s culture.
I am here today to dive into the stages of development of a wrestling fan. From the young ages of adolescence into the elder ages of adulthood, each portion of your life constitutes something entirely different. In the capacity of professional wrestling, it is one of the most unique perspectives and fan bases in the world.
