comment When did fake pro wrestling become so popular in the US?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about entertainment and pop culture rather than about martial arts. I'm not convinced that this question would be a good fit for this site for other expert martial artists.

comment What Kung Fu styles originated from Southern Shaolin?
Does this question have a narrow and limited enough of a scope to produce a reasonably definitive and authoritative answer? The purpose of asking and answering questions on Stack Exchange is for specific questions, but I see this one as being too large to answer. We should not be trying to emulate general-purpose information listings like Wikipedia. Those questions on SO are old ones and have historical significance behind their existence.

I suggest narrowing your question down to a specific one. You are asking for a lot of information in this question.
