Claire makes some similar arguments for why I think that pro wrestling should be an Olympic sport — a combination of athletic and artistic feats that’s judged as much on aesthetics as on acrobatics. It’s semi-scripted (depending, a match can be planned from the bottom up, or it can be called in the ring completely), the outcome is predetermined, but it’s just plain fun.

You could set it as a tandem sport, so the two in the ring are a paired team. Then judge it like Rythmic Gymnastics or Figure Skating. I’d watch the heck out of it.
