      Did Flair retire at WrestleMania 34? I thought it was 24

              I love telling people who say "Wrestling's fake," that, "So is any show with 'Reality' in the genre."

                Complaining about wrestling being fake is like complaining that people aren't killed for real in action movies. It's entertaniment, it's supposed to be like that!

                    "We know it's fake... but also, it isn't.
                    " But it is, and I say this as a fan. 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.

                      I took my dad to WrestleMania 31, he’s not even close to a fan of wrestling, & before we went he said he really didn’t get the point of it. 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!

                          A lot of non-fans don’t know just how tough wrestlers actually are (going back to the whole “it’s fake” thing they downplay how legit a lot of workers really are)

                              It's fake for winning..but they are still human and even if the dangerous stunts are stunts, its gotta still hurt like hell

                                My friends don’t watch wrestling because it’s fake.

                                So I don’t watch movies anymore

                                    They make plenty enough to buy tickets
                                    Their health insurance would be rediculously expensive to pay for everyone's
                                    It's fake, now and then they do fist fight for real if they get pissed at each other

                                        The only thing fake about wrestling is that the finishes and endings are planned out... Other than that theres nothing fake about it and those guys and gals all get hurt alot and really badly sometimes

                                          Just remember wrestlers are kind of like stunt men . They are like an actor also the matches are predetermined. They can & really do get injuries . Such as pulled muscles & springed & broken finger wrist . Twisted ankles .They have actually had many neck & back injuries .Yes they cut thier head to cause bleeding .So it is important to know how to lift a wrestler or throw a wrestler& even know how to take a fall or bump . They also do get concussions .Some have actually broke ribs ..So anyone who thinks wrestling is fake put you on some boots & go to pro wrestling school try it for a month . Some wrestlers travel schedule is so busy they don't get no personal time or family time . Try traveling 310 day or more in a year that will ware you out. So I say wrestling matches are predetermined. Not fake

                                              Well wrestling is fake in the sense that its scripted and they do things to minimize pain but they are still in their getting hurt slamming their bodies around and shedding real blood

                                                  I think the funniest thing a Nonfan once tried to tell me was "The people in the crowd aren't actual fans. They're background actors that WWE hires, that's why they act like it's real"

                                                  I stood there......in silence....Untill I just kinda smiled and said "Then where, if I may ask, do all the people who bought the tickets go?" He shut up real quick.

                                                  Only time i get emotional during wrestling is when a booking decision i don't agree with is made, it ranges between slightly and highly annoyed.

As for the fake thing, Sting said it best..."falling 9 or 10 feet and landing on a half inch thick mat over concrete doesn't tickle". Wrestling is like magic, an entertaining illusion...but people get hurt and they die. Ask the family of Rey Mysterio's opponent how fake it is, man died at his hands. Non wrestling fans...hmm most never believe I watch for anything but the women's division.

                                                                                        • dbgrfdg

                                                                                            • Joe Vega
