Real or fake? Ok sure, we all know its "scripted" and has carefully thought out soap opera storylines, but personally, those guys are pretty damn athletic to be able to do most of that stuff. I had to say semi-real.

WTF does "semi-real" mean?

Yes, the outcomes are predetermined. Vince McMahon admitted that years ago to get out of paying some sort of sporting event tax in Vegas, I believe. It's when he coined the term "sports entertainment".

The physical aspect is very much real. Being bodyslammed hurts. I'm not sure how you fake that act unless you think it's all computer generated and the live audience is under a mass hypnotic suggestion or something.

This is what i was trying to say. The physical stuff of all they do really does hurt. Plus, you cant be some doofus out there who doesnt knwo what he is doing or you will end up getting you and your partner hurt.

Being bodyslammed onto the ground hurts. Being bodyslammed onto a trampoline really doesn't.

I had a friend who helped set up a wrestling event once and he said that it is basically a trampoline (though not as bouncy as your run-o-tha-mill trampolines) and that they place wooden slats at certain points to that it makes a louder noise when somebody gets bounced off of it.

Wrestling is as fake as the name "Rufus Dawes," you ignorant, loudmouthed, schmucks.

By "shock", I meant the incorporation of:

A) Skimpily clothed women. Normally I don't mind this, but most of the women aren't that attractive, and they put them in sexual situations, which I don't care to see when watching wrestling.

B)Alcohol-related situations. Remember the thing with Scott Hall, and Road Warrior Hawk? Totally stupid.

C) Stone Cold Steve Austin. He is the character that single handedly ruined wrestling. There was no good guy vs bad guy, it was bad guy vs badder guy.

When Vince got involved in the show, it turned in to a wrestlers vs the administration show, and its been that way ever since. Fvcking stupid.

1.letting go of good talent for no reason like gail kim and kevin nash and scott hall
2.weak crusierweight div. cause vince don't want it to take away from the main event
3.pushing the wrong talent i.e. randy orton and snitkey not talented guys like rob vam dam or matt hardy
4.using dumb guys as your writers like triple h and not using guys like paul hyman or eric bischoff

that the other thing eric bischoff and paul heyman were head of wcw and ecw now they just used for show instead of using thier creative minds you just use them as heel managers

I'm not the smartest man but if vince listened to my advice the wwe would be getting more fans in the seats and shutting up us internet know it all

Same here. Back in the late 90's i'd flip between MNF, WCW and WWF. I'm getting nostalgic as we speak. My favorite matches ever:

1. Bret Hart vs Ric Flair, the "Best of the Best" match.
2. Ultimate Warrior vs Hulk Hogan, Wrestlemania 10 IIRC...not sure which one it was, but Warrior won both the World and Intercontinental title.
3. Bret Hart vs Sting
4. Anytime Juventud and Rey Mysterio faced off

I agree. Occasionally i'll stop on WWE when its playing, and see that the main event is HHH vs some pud. Rob Van Dam was possibly the best athlete coming out of ECW and they basically ruined him.

Oh...and Chris Jericho, he is awesome, but they don't use him like he should be used, a cruiserweight.

Wrong. Ratings are horrible. House show attendance is down. Pay per view buy rates are down.

The Austin argument is valid, however Vince purchasing the WCW is what has led to the sorry state of wrestling today. When your competitor is gone, you have no reason to innovate (or in wrestling's case, create story lines that actually make sense)

Nash and Hall were past their prime when Vince brought them back with Hogan to try to revive the NWO. Hogan was waaaaay beyond his prime though, but the crowds ate it up. If you want to see Nash & Hall catch Impact Wrestling (Jeff Jarrett's dad owns this franchise of the NWA and Jeff holds the book) on Fox Sports and just seen how awful they are.

Orton isn't that bad and has a traditional wrestling pedigree (which doesn't always = success... see Dustin Rhodes)

Triple H does not hold the book in WWF, but by virtue of marrying the boss's daughter, he does have tremendous influence. However the creative team has NO incentive to actually do what they are paid to do... Be Creative.

Jake the Snake was recently sent to prison for animal cruelty... he was deathly afraid of his snakes and starved one to death. (He's also had serious drug and mental problems)

I'm not that familiar with the Road Warrior, but the Scott Hall alcholic crap in WCW was scripted on purpose (except the endings), and Scott was drunk for most of the scenes... as he was pretty much 24x7 those days. When Hall would get humiliated by the other wrestlers for being a drunk douchebag, those parts of the story were not scripted. It was the wrestlers actually making fun of Scott.... WCW's version of tough love I guess...

.. Being bodyslammed hurts. I'm not sure how you fake that act unless you think it's all computer generated and the live audience is under a mass hypnotic suggestion or something.

If you know how to take the bump, a body slam really doesn't do much more than tickle. ****ing chair shots hurt... Rick Flair chops hurt... The biggest thing to remember in pro wrestling is the person doing the move is basically doing nothing. The receiver of the move is doing all the work. Body slams included... watch any wrestling move and you'll see the receiver setting it up by jumping or running to the rope or...

The only time it really hurts (minus the chairs and the chops) is if you screw up a move.

(Llama did this crap for couple years in Indy... more because I wanted to learn the secrets than any odd desire to make it to the WWE)

That's awesome. Bet it was a blast :D

It was a fun time... and not a bad way to get some exercise. I walked away when the real life Dangerous Don Basher decided he wanted a little of the real life Ms. Llama.

Still keep in touch with most of them plus have some friends who have actually made it to the WWE developmental leagues (Ohio Valley and the one out of Louisville) so that's where I keep up with my news on the big guys... I can't watch much of it anymore...

I've seen high school wrestling. I've seen college wrestling. I've even seen Olympic wrestling. But as many times as I've tried, I've yet to see professional wrestling.

anyone seen King of the Deathmatch over in Japan? that sh*t is rough.

I got on tape Mic Folley vs Terry Funk. They have barbed wire ropes, barbed wire covered plywood sheets with exploding bombs, a ladder, a plywood sheet full of nails, and beds full of thumbtacks. You should see the closeups of all the thumbtacks in the back of peoples skull. It will seriously change your view on some wrestling stars. Japan is hardcore, WWE is not.
