Any wrestling experts here? I need someone to read a short scene and point out problems with the moves. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

uhhh, I'm a wrestling mom, but I'm sure my son would take a look. (If you don't get any better offers.)

Are the characters employing a particular style of wrestling, e.g. Greco-Roman, sumo, WWE, folk wrestling from a particular part of the world, etc.?

Thanks. The scene doesn't involve a match. I just needed to make sure the moves are physically possible.

The, "moves," don't necessarily have the same names in different places. My specialties were the backdrop and the guillotine. I wrestled in high school but college rules were too dangerous for me. They allowed the back suplee...maybe it's suplay? Big risk of broken neck.

What kind of moves do you want?

Ariella is right. There are many variations of rules and they get more dangerous as you get to higher levels of competition. WWE isn't wrestling though. It's Nascar fan opera. It's athletic. It's gymnastic. It's entertainment. But it's not wrestling.
