Can you help me with English please?

Try stepping into a wrestling arena someday, you’ll run for your life before the match begins.

Looks like you have done it many times.

Run for your life.

If this were an arena, then we’d see who would run.

1. What does "stepping into" mean?

2. What does the idiom "run for your life" mean???

3. We'd = we would. Right?

Thank you.

    1. "stepping into" means entering. Do you know what a wrestling arena looks like? There are boundaries marked on the floor. When you step over the boundary, you are stepping into the arena.

    2. "Run for your life" means literally to run in order to save you life. In this case, the author (who sounds very immature) is saying that the other person would be very frightened when faced with a wrestler and would run away. 

    3. Yes- we would. In conditional sentences, the verb in the main clause is often "would".

    The first sentence has a serial comma and should be two sentences. The second sentence is lacing a subject.
