Here's a great question that I don't see anyone post here.

I have been a wrestling fan for many years and love to watch on Monday's and Friday's. I think it is very entertaining even though much of it is like a movie with actors.

Anyone here watch wrestling? I am referring to WWE.

    Very true. In the old days I called it a man's soap opera.

    People keep telling me that I should go see "this show" and "that show" because it is very entertaining but I keep telling them that I have a great show which is very entertaining twice every week.

    There is Monday night RAW and then Friday Night Smackdown.

    Very entertaining..

        People only seem to care about the UFC it seems. All the other MMA orgs out there are dying off. Scott Coker just sold Strikeforce to Zuffa. He couldn't be bothered trying to make a profit off this so he took his 20 mill and ran off. Too bad because StrikeForce was putting on some very good cards, even better than some of the recent UFC cards.

          Al comes down to marketing, and Dana White and his team are just marketing genius's. This will be cool as they'll be bringing even more fighters over for other classes. Last couple UFC events have been extremely good, what Jones did to Shogun the other day was unbelievable, he decimated him.

          The only thing I hope they change is allow girl fights which Dana is against right now... some of those chicks are just absolutely brutal.

            There was nothing stopping Dana from bringing those fighters over before. He didn't need to purchase StrikeForce just to bring those fighters over. He didn't want competition, that's plain and simple. StrikeForce was catching a bit of fire, their ratings were going up and people were enjoying the shows on Showtime. Dana put an end to it before StrikeForce managed to put a dent in the UFC's profits.
            As for Shogun, it was an impressive victory for Jon Jones but Forrest Griffin crunched Shogun also. Shogun was giving away quite a bit of size to guys like Griffin and Jones who are about 6'3 to 6'4 and walking around in the 230+ range whereas Shogun is closer to 5'11 and naturally a smaller man with a smaller frame.
            Jon Jones vs Anderson Silva would be a promoter's dream right about now.

            Yet Manny Pacquiao probably made more money last year than all the UFC fighters combined.

      good question, the answer is no because of marketing tactics and all of this. Wwe is more fun to watch even though we know this is fake stuff.

        Movies are fake too. But people still flock to them, paying billions of dollars yearly to be entertained by 'actors'.

            It is called sports entertainment, but man it looks real sometimes.

            I only like wrestling just for the promos, interviews, etc, not really into the matches.

    When I was a kid I loved wrestling. When I found out it wasn't real I started losing interest. I just don't know why. I know they are in awesome shape to be throwing each other around like that.
