Rassling is fake, House says 

Georgia lawmakers have helped answer the burning question: is pro wrestling real?

Rassling, as it's defined by the House of Representatives, is "a staged performance of fighting and gymnastic skills and techniques by two or more human beings who are not required to use their best efforts in order to win and for which the winner may have been selected before the performance commences."

What? Could it be the matches are really fixed? To find out, CL went straight to the World Wrestling Federation.

WWF spokesman Jason Bernstein says the House's definition actually gives professional wrestling too much credit. "That definition doesn't jibe. We're about live entertainment, far from the sports specific jargon they used."

By the way, the wrestling definition was tucked away in a bill that allows tickets to be sold at any price by the ticket's first purchaser. Go scalpers!
