In the late 1980s, representatives for the WWE appeared before the New Jersey Senate that professional wrestling was only “entertainment.” Professional Wrestlers like Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan began taking roles in scripted movie roles and other wrestlers like Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, and Mick Foley later wrote autobiographies that disclosed information about the professional wrestling business.
