Magician rivalries: Why does it happen?

Why does it always seem like there can only be 2 rival magicians? I just saw The Prestige last night and it centers around 2 rival magicians. Even the film itself is pitted against The Illusionist, also a magician-centered movie. And now we have CrissAngel and David Blaine, are they rival magicians?
