Even fighting itself has changed. Now it's all polite and two people typically square off and agree to fight, with most tussles involving defense first and punches second, and both parties stopping if one goes down. Back in the 70s, most fights started via sucker punch from someone and then continued until the linesmen actually broke it up.
