Darren Aronofsky is calling upon SAG to bring Wrestlers into the Union?!?!?

Hey folks, Harry here... I completely agree with Darren's take here. It's obvious that Wrestling is not an athletic event, the results are pre-determined, the action is at least partially choreographed. The wrestlers have lines and schtick that they perform on Television and pay per view. The perform characters and there are writers employed to feed them lines and story arcs to perform. That's acting. It's violent acting. There's stunt work, but it is acting and performing. The story was sent to me by which has the full story, which I thought was interesting. What do you folks think about this?

“There’s really no reason why these guys are not in SAG,” Aronofsky told Newsday. “They’re in front of a camera performing and doing stunts, and they should have that protection. They should have health insurance and they should be protected."
