The following study set out to discover whether coverage of professional wrestling could be rightly considered a form of journalism. In order to effectively investigate this subject, literature was read and reviewed to apply to the study. The research consisted of quantitative data by critically analysing the representation of professional wrestling within three British newspapers across a week-long period. Qualitative techniques were also deployed by interviewing personnel within the world of professional wrestling journalism and a survey for wrestling fans regarding their reading habits, which received an impressive 1,578 responses. The result of the study established that whilst professional wrestling coverage may not be as extensively covered within the mainstream media, the basic rules of good reporting must still apply and therefore can be deemed a form of journalism.

Acknowledgements
A massive thank you to everyone involved with the production of this dissertation; that includes all 1,578 people who kindly responded to my survey. Thank you to my lecturer Vera Slavtcheva-Petkova who didn’t laugh in my face when I told her I wanted to start a new dissertation on professional wrestling a month before the first draft deadline. A great deal of gratitude must also be given to Bill Apter, Aubrey Sitterson, John Pollock and Sam Gascoyne who all generously contributed to this by offering their expertise and opinions on the subject. Finally thank you to Olivia, for encouraging me endlessly throughout this.
