                    When I was younger and watching it it's fake because it's scripted but the injuries are real while unlike mma or ufc it's not scripted it's basically street fighting

                            For people who say wrestling is fake " what is fake ? They are not telling us that they fight only to win or hurt each other , they do what is in the script and they just follow it and they do it just for our entertainment ."
                            So nothing is fake !

                                        The next time someone says "it's fake" your response should be "let me throw you off the roof of a hell in a cell cage with only a wooden table to cushion your fall, then tell me how fake it is"

                                            Saying wrestling isn't fake makes wrestling fans look like delusional marks... Yeah the injuries are real, but the competition is fake. The promos are fake. The outcomes are fake. Wrestling IS fake, that's just how it is. It's simulated fighting. It's not real.

                                                people always come to the comment section and say that wrestling is fake but as far as I'm concerned most of the stuff on TV is fake and if you don't like it then deal with it you just don't have to watch it you don't have to put down wwe for being fake but if it's really that boring than stop watching it

                                                        It is scripted and pre determined not fake. I hate that the only thing non-wrestling fans actually “know” about wrestling is that it is “fake”. I would love to see any of them try it and still say its fake. I’m not saying everything that happens is real but the majority is it’s just dramatized.

Sure there are mishaps and accidents that are real but wrestling itself is scripted show. The fact that the accidents that happen *are* accidents only proves it. And I'm not brushing it off as "fake nonsense", I mean it can be brilliantly nonsensical at times and that's why we love it... But I don't see why people get so defensive (or offensive for that matter) about it's fictionality. Nobody does it for any other form of entertainment.

After Levi Stadium he said I get it now, just suspend your belief for one evening, buy into the performance and it’s amazing. Plus he had no idea how popular it was, as we live in the UK!
