There actually used to be a real wrestling league called RPW, or, RealProWrestling.

It only lasted 2 seasons, because I guess not enough people really cared about it. I guess the modern American would rather considered Professional wrestling as a Soap Opera where men wear a colorful pants, fake punch each other, and the women are basically depicted as sex tools, rather than professional athletes.
