The educational system in our country is at a crisis point, with most young people graduating high school without even a rudimentary grasp of professional wrestling history, according to a recent Harvard study.
The study surveyed more than 10,000 students completing secondary school and discovered that only a tiny fraction of them can, for example, name 10 past WWE Intercontinental Champions, only only three percent of respondents recognized a photograph of former WWF President Jack Tunney.
Students entering colleges and universities are no longer required to demonstrate even a basic foundation of wrestling knowledge, and most cannot identify the main event of WrestleMania 4 or more than nine members of the nWo.
“The curriculum is failing our students,” said concerned parent Lilian Ellison, who recently attended a Tallahassee School Board meeting to insist on better wrestling education for students.
“My son can do math and recite the Pledge of Allegiance, but he has learned nothing about Don Owens’ Portland Wrestling territory or the career of Giant Baba. You call that an education?”
