    What do you mean not scripted? There are plenty of dudes who work without a script and sometimes the outcome changes during the match based on crowd reaction or other factors. If you're asking about them fighting for realsy, it sometimes happens when they dislike each other or something happens during the match. There was also shit called Brawl for All - check it out but don't watch it.

    Wrestling doesn't actually have real rules of fighting so dudes kick, punch, submit, use weapons, etc - you can have an UFC style fight.

    Pro wrestling started off "real." It morphed from real catch-as-catch-can (catch wrestling) competitions into the choreographed "sports entertainment" of today because the "real" matches were boring. Kind of like what's happening with the UFC now.

    I did with my friends several years ago, it was funny but obviously we all wanted to win so sometimes we have to take it easy between each other, it was very funny tho..

    If you had a real pro wrestling match it would look a lot similar to X ARM.

    MMA is real pro wrestling. You can trace the lineage back and it will lead you to pro wrestling. You could even go as far as saying that MMA is just another style of the many different styles of pro wrestling, I wouldn't disagree with you. It goes back to Pride and Pancrase, which were built in the image of the old Japanese UWF from the 1980's. Go watch some of the matches from UWF and they were using Jujitsu, flying guard passes, hybrid martial arts matches that just happened to have scripted outcomes(Ali vs Inoki, the main inspiration for the UWF, wasn't scripted but was a pretty big influence on everything). The guys training the UWF wrestlers, Karl Gotch and later on Billy Robinson with the UWFI guys(Takada, Sakuraba, Anjo, Tamura, etc). Gotch trained Suzuki, Funaki, and Shamrock. Even on the Gracie side the man that taught them in the old days, Mitsuyo Maeda, was a Judo guy that learned old time pro wrestling(it was how he was making his living when he was in the US), so he basically taught the Gracies old school Judo that had been filtered through early 1900's pro wrestling.

    Different ways to bring shoot style into pro wrestling.

    The entire point of pro wrestling is you can get certain guys over and promote them.
