Which is the greater cultural contributor?

Over the past century or so, there have been two Anglo-American-centric entities, epic fantasies and professional wrestling, that have become very popular cultural entities globally, at least among certain segments of the world's population.  Some are fans of both; others detest them.  Yet can the case be made that one or both of these are worth discussing on their global cultural contributions?

What do you think about both epic fantasies and professional wrestling and their possible value to current global culture?
And no, the above is not an acceptable answer, no matter what you think! ;)

I had a plot bunny for a book idea that came directly from pro wrestling PPV commercial and Richard K Morgan's "The Steel Remains." So I'd say both.

Wrestling is a popular phenomenon outside the US? Huh. I never knew.
