Dance and WWE/WWF are not sports for me since I see them as being more artistic/entertaining than competitive.

I saw the powerwalking on the olympics recently and honestly I was thinking who would watch this? If you wanted to watch a race surely you'd be more inclined to watch running. My thoughts were also confirmed when I mentioned it to my mates. I suppose it is a sport as it is a competition and it does use some form of physical fitness though but I just don't understand why it's a sport you'd want to watch or follow.
I suppose from that list I'd go with:
Fishing: It's more of a recriational hobby really as you could set your equiptment up and have a snooze whilst waiting for a catch. An activity where you can have a snooze whilst doing it doesn't really count as a sport to me.
Chess: Well to me chess is more of a board game.
I think most of the others do have some characteristics of sport in them, even the wrestling one, although it isn't really a true competition it is much more of a workout than snooker or pool, which most people consider a true sport, most wrestlers need to be in good fitness and work out pretty much every day, the better guys can go for a good 20-30 minutes in the ring and to do that you have to have pretty good fitness levels. Nowadays they call it sports entertainment though.
