Jeff Melton (left) and Adrian Rohr, friends and pro wrestling super fans, greet each other with "too sweet," a gesture known to pro wrestling fans as a way of saying hello or acknowledging something positive. As part of Morning Edition's exploration of how fandoms help shape identity, our producers spent a night amid the smoke, strobes, spandex and screaming fans at a pro wrestling match with Melton and Rohr.⠀
For Melton, wrestling offers not only an escape from stress but also a way to connect — with other wrestling fans like Rohr as well as with the storylines in the ring.
