Our Bob Dole used to look like Diesel (is that the right guy?), well, at least until he lost all that weight.

I used to watch wrestling back when it was Hulk, Piper, Randy Savage, Andre, etc. Now it's just basically turned into a soap opera for men (and some women who watch). I don't even like regular soap operas, so no, needless to say, I don't watch wrestling anymore.

He does look pretty close. My kids love WWE. Hulk and all the old guys are back now-but yes it is worse than soaps for sure.

Andre is dead, but hulk is in summer slam, animal is back in tag teams, and Kamala the fat azz giant is back also-I think their ratings are slipping so bringing back the old guys. Nature Boy is still in there too-he is like 70 now-maybe not but looks it.

My granddad once told me, probably a year and a half ago, that I looked like "that guy with the hair," because of my hair. I had no idea who he was talking about, until seeing Smackdown was on a couple of days later and deciding to watch, partly to find out what the hell he was talking about and partly for old times' sake.

Then I saw...

I SPIT IN THE FACE OF PEOPLE WHO AREN'T COOL.

I might not pay attention to the actual wrestling while i'm channel surfing, but I sure do take notice when Stacey Keibler is on :hump:

I find it amazing how the WWE can fill a stadium with a bunch of yelling and screaming fans. I think to myself, people actually spend hard earned money to watch scripted fights inside a ring.

The so-called "wrestlers" don't even refer to themselves as wrestlers but as sport entertainers. So knowing this is nothing more than acting, and bad acting and that, why do people pay to watch and yell for thier favorite, as if it's going to make a difference in the outcome?

In the past, I would sometimes stop on a channel that was showing wrestling because I thought some of the moves were kinda cool. I would sometimes think to myself, even though the match was scripted, some of those moves had to hurt.

My son has a friend that watches the WWE and he keeps asking me to let him watch it too but I can't because I don't think it's appropriate for children. Not only isn't it appropriate but I would also like him to find better things to do with his time then to fill his head with this garbage.

If any of you have ever been behind the scenes for any professional wrestling you would know that they not only do not wrestle in the matches, but every move is choreographed before the match. Virtually every move is practiced so they don't hurt each other.

I watched 3 hours of practice prior to an event in Philly a few years ago that included each and every wrestler for the evening's show.

They have their own special ring for the events. It may look like a boxing ring but it has several heavily paded zones as well as a very large coil spring in the center of the ring for the absortion of the drops and top rope jumps.

They are physically fit ACTORS that consider themselves professional atheletes. IMHO

Actually, if you look at it objectively, it's as real as anything else. Oh sure, the outcome is predetermined with a script but think about this.

Many a wrestler has had their career ended due to an in the ring injury. Injuries are real, right?

Anyone remember Owen Hart falling from the rafters at Kemper Arena when his harness failed, hitting the ring and dieing? Death is real, right?

It's all a matter of perspective folks.

Actually, although the winner of the match is predetermined, they don't completely choreograph each move beforehand. Obviously the guys have to practice moves on each other so guys know what to expect and don't hurt themselves, but they mostly wing it for awhile during the match until they are ready to end it.

I was a big wrestling fan until I went to college, but it's hard to get back into it now. The thing you have to realize is that it is entertainment, most people know that it's not 100% real. If you can take it for what it is, it's really not that bad.....it's basically just an elaborate soap opera for guys.
