A study published in 2016 compared sites of injury between Greco-Roman and free-style wrestling. These researchers found that knee injuries were significantly more prevalent in free-style wrestlers than Greco-Roman wrestlers. More specifically, knee injuries accounted for 53 percent of injuries in free-style wrestlers, and 22 percent in Greco-Roman wrestlers (Akhmedov et al., 2016, p. 105). Dr. Donnenwerth and the authors of the article mentioned above associate this finding with the differences in the two styles of wrestling. Since the rules of Greco-Roman prevent the athletes from using their legs while wrestling, they are less likely to suffer knee injuries.

Professional wrestling, for better or for worse, has always paid heavy attention to the physiques of those who step into the ring. The fans like extremes, or at least that’s the theory. They want to see absurdly muscly performers battle it out with ridiculously overweight opponents, which has led to some pretty interesting bodies over the years. However, chiselled physiques are quite difficult to maintain and fat bodies are unadvisable to maintain, which means for every awe-inspiring body in pro wrestling, there has been an awe-inspiring body transformation. Because pro wrestlers, especially those who perform for WWE, are constantly in the spotlight, these body transformations are usually impossible to hide and often times are the cause of much unwanted attention and mockery.
