It's pretty long so I can't just post it in here. It's a good read. I don't expect to make fans out of people who hate pro-wrestling, but it gives you an insight into some of the shit they put themselves through.

I'm not sure if anybody here even likes pro-wrasslin' so I might be going into dangerous territory here, haha.

The biggest thing I hate is watching pro wrestling with non-fans and them saying "You do know it's not real right?". Of course I do, that doesn't actually stop me watching it. It's kinda the same thing as watching a soap opera, the characters in a soap opera aren't real, they are played by real people yes, but the actual characters are made up by the makers of that soap opera. And pro wrestling is the same. The difference is sometimes wrestlers do hurt themselves in the ring, many injuries suffered over the years. You work by thumb really, the acting isn't real, it's scripted. The matches are choreographed move for move, but when it goes wrong they get hurt. Good article.

Exactly, good post.

It's just live theatre, ultimately. A mixture of sport and entertainment, but the thrill that good wrestlers can give is hard to match. The Attitude Era was so amazing that I've actually gone back and downloaded every Raw and Nitro from like 96 - 2001, and me and a friend are going through it again. It's going to take forever but it was such a great time. I don't watch WWE a lot these days, because the PG-TV shit was ruining it, but it's nice to see the Rock and Austin back. I know Austin can't do as much as he used to but it's still awesome seeing him.

I hate that people don't give pro-wrestlers respect, they're some of the toughest people on the planet. Not saying they could beat up trained fighters, but these guys can take a hell of a beating.

Wrestling fans know that pro-wrestling is "fake." The only time I ever thought some of it might be real (not the fighting, but the story) was during the NWO invasion. It was done so perfectly you kinda wondered for a little bit. I was also a lot younger then. Not to mention that sometimes real personal feuds get put on display for the world to see, in form of storylines, and these wrestlers -- who are on the road constantly, putting their bodies through hell -- get absolutely no respect from certain people.

Being into MMA, I see this a lot as well. I love both.

You know, in theory being "fake" helps wrestling. Because they can book it, they can make sure such a main event on a PPV gets half an hour. And this is one advantage it has over MMA and boxing, because if you pay for a boxing fight, sure you have the undercard, but absolutely nobody buys a boxing event for the undercard, it's the main event, anyway if the main lasts 37 seconds and it's over, you can't complain to the PPV company that you bought the fight from because it only lasted 37 seconds because they'd turn round and say "It's not our fault it lasted 37 seconds", and they are 100% right. In pro wrestling if you buy a PPV, you know the PPV will got nearly 3 hours, regardless. Now sure sometimes a match might have to end early (last example off the top of my head would be Orton vs Edge last year) due to an injury and another match might have to go longer, but it's done. Now if you didn't like the PPV you can't get your money back because again it isn't the company's fault.
