    Default the fight is choreographed

    Can you say "choreographed" even for wrestling, not only for dancing? It seems to have broad applications.

    A wrestler in game - Hey! Biting wasn't in the plan.
    Watcher - Hey, the fight is choreographed!

    not a teacher

    It can be used in a figurative sense for all kinds of situations. Very recently I overheard something similar to: "Ten people applied for the job and on the day of the interviews we had to choreograph it all so the applicants didn't see one another".

    Default Re: the fight is choreographed

    Here's the definition of this word from a dictionary:

    Verb

    1. Compose the sequence of steps and moves for (a performance of dance or ice skating).
    2. Plan and control (an event or operation).


    I believe I have seen the word "choreographed" used to describe wrestling before.

    Since pro wrestling is fake, the moves for the fights are indeed worked out in advance. The compose a sequence of steps and moves. They choreograph it.
