Wrestling has been a pretty lucrative business, especially for WWE. However, there was WCW and ECW back then, who both are now gone. Beyond the matches in the squared circle, wrestlers have rich, interesting stories to tell about the history of wrestling.
Some are about the clash between TNA and WWE, while others talk about fans being bad people, such as in the case of Sasha Banks. Whatever the matter is, wrestling fans need to realize just how important wrestling has been for some people.
Here are 10 facts about wrestling that you seriously need to know about if you want to be called a legitimate wrestling aficionado.

Jeff Jarett has quit TNA to focus on his Global Force Wrestling brand. Likewise, even though Jeff became more popular with the help of "diva" Debra McMichael back in WWF, Jeff felt that simply having a woman as some sort of accessory ruins their credibility in wrestling.
