AbstractWrestling involves physical competition between two competitors, where each participant attempts to achieve and uphold a higher position. India is the second-largest viewership of pro wrestling in the World. As per the recent statistics the aggressiveness among the school-going children is increasing day by day. And a remarkable percentage of aggression among children is due to watching wrestling shows on TV. There are very few studies conducted in India, which shows the relationship between the aggressiveness among high school students who are watching wrestling shows on TV. The main objectives were to assess and find an association between the level of aggression among the high school children after watching wrestling shows on TV. I adopted a survey research approach with descriptive design where 100 high school students (who are watching wrestling shows at least 1hr/ day & at least twice weekly frequency) were selected by using purposive sampling technique. Data were collected by a structured demographic Performa & Bush & Perry scale at DAV public school, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. The study resulted, around 6% of the students were having sever level of aggression, 3% were at low risk while the highest that is 46% were at high risk for aggression because of watching wrestling shows and aggression shows strong statistical significance with gender & family type. Thus the level of aggression among the high school students was directly proportional to the increased frequency of watching wrestling shows on TV and are mostly male.
