For kids, wrestling with the plot is a way to escape the realities of real life. After all, most people who love wrestling do so as a way to escape reality. That said, some storylines are difficult to sell – like the story of the broke wrestler, who wanted to compete against the billionaire Mr. McMahon.
One problem with the wrestle with the plot is that women are not as likely to be married as men. Women have a shorter shelf life in the sports business than in other industries, and wrestling has a more limited window for female performers than most other industries. As a result, the Bella storyline implicitly buys into an outdated notion that women cannot have a career and a family at the same time.
