    It's not fake they practice every move and decide in advance who's gonna win

    It's not fake. It's just that none of it is real.

    Hey, it's theater, and the crowds love it. That doesn't diminish the fact that these guys take some astonishing punishment. Sure, a face-stomp might be pulled or actually be a mat-stomp, but bouncing a guy off the mat from shoulder height is NOT trivial. My hat's off to them for both their athletic prowess AND their showmanship.

    All that said, I think I would rather take one of these guys out for a drink and get some stories rather than watch a match, though. Hollerin' an' wollopin' each other ain't my cup of tea.

    Ask John Stossel.
    He got hit on the side of the head by wrestler David Schultz.
    Schultz struck Stossel after Stossel asked whether professional wrestling was fake.
    (Stossel sued and got a little under a half million dollars.)

    So my opinion is ...
    Of course professional wrestling is real.
    I don't want MY butt kicked telling you all that it is fake...

    My grandpa went to his grave in his 80's swearing up and down that wrestling was real and no one ever walked on the Moon. If you said any different, the fight was on.

    While professional wrestling is fake, the wrestlers themselves aren't like the ones back in my childhood. Some of those guys were so scrawny that I believe my grandmother could have taken them. Now days, these guys are true athletes, performing for the crowd, with some incredible moves.

    I think to a certain point its real, but also having to make sure their wrestlers dont get too badly hurt (hogan for example, Stone cold) becaues once they cant fight anymore they are gone.

    There's a difference between fake and pre-determined. Yes, a lot of those moves still hurt, and the lifestyle sucks. I'm away from my home 5 days a week, but these guys are away from theirs for months at a time, constantly traveling, entertaining the crowds, and dealing with abuse.

    And the largest majority of them don't make crap when it comes to money. They do it because they dream of being the next Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, John Cena, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, etc...

    My hats off to them. I couldn't do it.
