I have a feeling when it comes to making some outfits truly practical by deriving real life inspiration, some might be this radically altered. Actually even if some wrestlers do pay homage to superheroes, such outfits may have to be altered to be doable in close combat. The same principle goes in sprinting, football and rugby where you get an idea of what the Flash would actually wear.
But that does make one wonder whether if some people’s points of reference is so narrow that it does miss out what an athlete would actually wear. Actually and parsimoniously, Black Canary could easily pull off what other wrestlers wear. I swear, some wrestlers do dress up like her without even trying.
It seems what’s practical in wrestling and to some extent, sprinting and football differs from what others expect it to be.
