    Wow is it still on TV? It's been ages since I've seen it. It is completely fake, the fights aren't real.

    I'm almost 100% sure you are joking. That secret has been out for 20 years or so.

    But I remember maybe 40 years ago, when the fact that it was always scripted, and choreographed was a closely guarded secret.

    I remember mentioning to me Dad (who was an ardent wrestling fan) "If these guys are fighting each other every day...why don't we ever see bruises or black eyes?"

    There are plenty of wrestlers that give real interviews, and they don't even try to hide it anymore.

    On the other hand, it's not exactly fake. After all it's very hard work, these people are trained stunt people. Highly skilled acrobatic actors.

    Even the costooms are fake, poppet.


    Plus also, when you watch propah wrestlahs, it is more Writhe & Grunt than Strut & Proclaim.

    Perfect analogy - but then same analogy would work for quite a few things in real life, right??? I'd say it's a 'guy thing' but the female versions are the same... Now I'm wondering if those are females or female 'versions'....

    Yes it's fake and scripted but the injuries are real. In sports, it's pretty easy to tell if it's fake or not. If you can't bet/wager on it, it's most likely fake.

    LOL. It may be fake, but the hype and the revenues are real.

    Yes, WWE is not real. It is all scripted stories shown to the audience. Even the fight matches are also scripted, if you see fight scenes carefully you can easily recognize that it is fake.

    This is post is great lol! "Glow", a Netflix series, is a funny show that portrays a women's wrestling league in the 80's. Perhaps you can gain some insight there while binging a pretty good show.

  • Balestra struggles to breathe beneath the weight of Luridly Colored 10 Ton Flop Guy -- as the crowd undecides on ...

    "Uhm, yeah -- so this is actschwlly theater, k? For the real deal, I gotta go up top -- which is all perfectly possible bcs if'n I got yogah smarts to wriggle out from undah ya, surely I sweetest poppet evah to glide as a dream 'pon your Flat Earth Theory horizon."

    Luridly Colored 10 Ton Flop Guy: You mean ... I gotta move?

    "Less'n you don't shift soon, your entire existence prolly questionable from a variety of angles."

    Luridly Colored 10 Ton Flop Guy: Fine. Let me call my crane guy. He's built a billion dollar business shipping out hippopotamuses from places they will never survive to dream homes full of ultra rich gay guys who outgrew cats when they were like 3.

    "Whatevah."

    (Here's when HIPPO SWATS shows -- an' the faux referee ain't got no clue 'bout decidin' nuthin' calls for Cathlick Goils from outta the audience to start prayin' so's I don't DIE. Simultaneous with alla this happnin', Beardo Rifflepoppo advances into the dark night anothah SIGNIFICANT % of any scale whatsoevah WILDER. Natchrlly, this is way more detail than anywan would evah wish for from parentheses -- but whose frickin' fault is that? Back to the fundamental question of whethah WRESTLIN' IS FAKE!!!)

    So, hey, yeah -- this is where the guy rolls ovah an' I get the hell out -- despite my legs yogahly split so I can't actschwlly run anyplace real easy.

    When I compare WWE fights with UFC fights I see a big difference of what is real and what it not.
    I know, It is not fair to compare those but that is what came to mind

    It's so fake, but o so entertaining, if you want to have an evening without thinking and in the mood for some overkill in testosterone.
