Not enough "wrestling is scripted"[edit]

This page should be deleted because it does not include the fact that professional wrestling is "a non-competitive professional sport, where all matches are scripted by the promotion's booking staff, and is also considered an athletic performing art, containing strong elements of catch wrestling, mock combat and theatre." This article might lead people to believe that professional wrestling is not non-competitive, and therefore might make people believe that professional wrestling is not scripted, which might make people believe that professional wrestling is not scripted, and is therefore actually people beating each other up with a competitive edge and that all the matches are not scripted, which may lead little children to practice the "art" of professional wrestling, which may lead to actual injury. I honestly think somebody should fix this or else this will have to be removed from the Professional Wrestling portal, which will lead people to confusion, and brains will explode. Please think of the children, editors. 68.255.75.249 (talk) 21:20, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Michael HutterDerrick Bateman – More well known as ring name "Derrick Bateman" compared to "Michael Hutter" because Bateman has appeared on WWE television NXT and SmackDown which have international outreach. Never used Hutter on television, only ring name. Starship.paint (talk) 04:25, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Derrick BatemanEthan Carter III – Ethan Carter III is his latest ring name and not Derrick Bateman (WWE days). Someone reverted my move without giving a reasonable explanation -- Marty2Hotty (talk) 07:32, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose nop. I explained the move. Bateman is the common name due to his major exposition in WWE. Hutter used the name EC3 in tna a few months, we dont know if " he will be known as this going forward".(crystal ball) --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 11:42, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
    • He wasn't a "major competitor" in WWE. He is being pushed significantly on TNA as Ethan Carter III and it seems this is a long term deal. Derrick Bateman was his ring name in WWE. I say this article should be renamed. Marty2Hotty (talk) 20:50, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
      • "it seems this is a long term deal" Again, Crystal Ball. When EC3 becomes the common name, we'll renamed. until then, we can't predict the future. He spent two years in the world's major company. Two months in TNA isn't enought. Also, he only had matches against jobbers, not a major storyline or championship. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 21:28, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose For now. He wasn't given the spotlight as Derreck Bateman in WWE but he was there for quite some time and they are the big leagues so I think a better case could be made that Bateman is his WP:COMMONNAME. He is more prominently featured in TNA, but I don't think he's been there long enough to be known more commonly as Carter.LM2000 (talk) 19:51, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
