What exactly is the WWE categorized as? My understanding is that it is not a sport. So what is it and why waste time on it? I don't get it.

I'm not sure if it still does, but the WWE used to bill itself as sports-entertainment. It's clearly not a true sport since everything, including who wins, is scripted. But there's certainly a lot of athleticism involved.

Pro wrestling also used to be referred to as a "soap opera" for men. There are story lines, feuds, love angles, good guys and bad guys, etc.

So essentially, it's scripted entertainment involving talented athletes. If I had to compare it to anything, I'd compare it to a circus.

As to why anyone would waste their time on it, it's like any form of entertainment ... some people get it and love it, and some don't.
