wrestling (countable and uncountable, plural wrestlings)

  1. A sport where two opponents attempt to subdue each other in bare-handed grappling using techniques of leverage, holding, and pressure points.
  2. A professional tumbling act that emulates the sport of wrestling. Also called "professional wrestling". It is distinguished from sport wrestling — which has strict internationally recognized rules and is conducted on a mat — by being scripted, rehearsed, conducted in a boxing ring rather than on a mat, and televised as entertainment.
  3. (countable) The act of one who wrestles; a struggle to achieve something.
    • 1863, Jean Ingelow, Poems, "Honors"
      I'd count not wearisome / Long toil, nor enterprise, / But strain to reach it; aye, with wrestlings stout / And hopes that even in the dark will grow []
