When I first saw the headline, I couldn’t help but click on the link.

Man wrestles shark?

Hell yes.

But then I watched the video. “Wrestling” implies that the shark participates in the conflict in some meaningful way. It suggests that the shark might  momentarily threaten the safety of its opponent in some way.

What I watched was does not constitute wrestling.

The man grabs an animal that has no arms and no legs and can’t breathe and drags it around by the tail for a couple minutes.

This amounts to little more than dragging around a helpless fish.
