Are fights between derby queens real or staged?
My 15 year old son was adopted from Myanmar (Burma). We watched "Birds of Pray" and he saw a sport he had ever seen before. The idea of women on roller skates beating each other up was a bit strange to him. He asked me if in a real (not movie) derby do they really fight. I told him I think it is all for show.
Keep in mind that we have a lot of sports that are more or less uniquely American that he has never seen. In his country they pretty much only have football (soccer), Cricket, Rugby, and chicken fighting.

Roller derby is real.
