Professional wrestling’s die hard fan base is just as unique as the sport itself. This week, Koncrete.com released a 14 minute mini-documentary featuring interviews with WrestleMania 34 attendees. Coming from all walks of life and from different parts of the globe, they share a united bond in their enthusiastic love of wrestling.
“Being a wrestling fan often comes with the stigma or being labeled weird or socially awkward. For most fans it’s like having an embarrassing condition that you don’t want anyone to know about in case they make fun of you. Koncrete went to WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans to learn more about wrestling superfan culture and find out what it takes to be a die hard WWE wrestling fan.”
From the inspirational to the hilarious and the philosophical to the bizarre, the common thread in these interviews is a genuine love for the sport. Perhaps this WrestleMania 34 attendee says it best:
“We’re all one,” he says, “To see this connection that people share over wrestling is amazing . . . It changes peoples lives in different ways . . . Wrestling is such a beautiful thing and one of the widest variety of people you would ever see like anything. That’s what wrestling is, man. Wrestling is people buying into these characters and emotionally investing into something. And in its purest form, Wrestling is love.”
The film offers a fun and affectionate glimpse into wrestling fandom:
