    That is so not tue.
    Choreographed and rehearsed, yes.
    But those acrobatics they do in and out of the ring is not fake.
    I'd like to see some of the other pro athletes try the things the wrestlers do.
    Its real, in that the flips and stuff are real.
    they fall down, get thrown, etc.
    But the hits aren't real.
    Usually when they are throwing punches it's pretty fake but I was talking about the acrobatics.

    its hard to fake flips, or being thrown across the ring.

    It's fake, yet so much more dangerous than MMA, shocking how people label things without having a clue what they're talking about.

    It is fake in the sense of trying to actually hurt eachother.

    Some of the stuff they do is pretty remarkable. These guys are big, strong, athletic men. I'm really impressed by what they do in the ring, and I feel like some of them are wasting their talent.

    They take bad falls, are constantly traveling, and train hard. Their bodies get worn out.

    So they cope with steroids for recovery, and painkillers. As sad as it is, it's no surprise so many of them die young.

    I don't think anyone is arguing that their lives are real... just "Professional" Wrestling, which is fake. Without question.

    Completely false. And couldn't you say essentially the same thing about NFL players? That's like saying while watching any professional sport/game "I could do that."

    I haven't watched wrestling since 5th grade, so I'm not one of those wrestling fans that cry when their favorite wrestlers lose and can't accept the reality that it isn't real.

    Comparing "Professional" wrestling to the NFL is laughable and pretty much negates your previous posts in this thread.

    Just because you personally feel it's "real" does not make it so. When the WWE is selling "Wrestling", yet the actors aren't actually even hitting each other... that's fake.

    Hence why Vince McMahon calls it "Sports Entertainment"... which is even a stretch in my opinion.

    I don't think the NFL has already decided what team is going to win before they play

    Speaking of stretches, skewing my words to say that I think it's real is a HUGE one.


    There is no doubt these guys have athletic ability, they obviously train hard to attain what they have. And that's all I'm trying to defend. I don't give a shit about wrestling, like I said in my previous post I haven't watched since the 5th grade.

    And my comparison to the NFL made perfect sense in this context. BLV said that you only need to know how to take steroids and read a script. You could just as easily make a blanket statement like that about the NFL.
