TOO EASY

When I was a kid I was convinced that, yes, wrestlers are cooperating with each other but the finishes aren't pre-determined, rather, they're playing sort of a physical strategy game with each other and there's an element of real competition, but the moves they do are practiced before hand so nobody gets hurt

As a kid I believed they'd just send everyone out to wrestle, and the endings were determined on the fly by the referee, based on how good the wrestlers did in the ring and how loudly the crowd reacted.

So, have each wrestler cut a promo, put them both online, and let the viewers vote on which one was better, and whoever wins the vote, that's who wins the match?

That's honestly not a terrible idea.

It's kind of how DG's Owarai (comedy) title used to work before they retired it. They'd do a comedy match and then poll the crowd, and whoever got the biggest reaction won the belt.
