There is a difference between fiction presented as fiction and fiction presented as fact. One is called storytelling and the other is called a lie.


And in the case of Wrestling, the fiction is told so poorly and in such an unbelievable way, that the people who fall for the lie are the subject of ridicule.


Now, for the people who watch it for laughs, the way someone watches a cartoon or sitcom, I get it and that's cool. But if you actually believe it...

I know it's a scripted show, just like any other tv show. But their stunts and physical abilities are not fake.

I don't think people thought that at all. You aren't faking backflips off the top rope. You are lessening the severity of everything by being on a spring board. The hits to the face where they stomp their feet... Fake... Some injuries are legit, most are faked. But the concept that any wrestler is better than another is fake since the winner and loser is decided before hand. So when you say he "lost  to the other guy and is now a coward for attacking him. That's unfair, as he was told to lose.

Well since your thread was on their actions, not their stunts and physical abilities is why you are getting shit lol.

A regular scripted TV show is telling a story. The game of thrones example, it is only ever presented as a fantasy story.

Wrestling is presented as a reality, like a boxing match, or ufc type reality. Has a live audience in a stadium, televised etc. Etc. But 1 of the 3 is  scripted. (notwithstanding thrown fights on the dl for money since those take heat too)  But since it's not presented like a regular fictional story, it takes the heat for being stupid drama.

So on The Walking Dead they go haha look a fake zombie lets hit em with a fake axe?  Riiiight

Inside of every fake tv show the characters act as if it's real.  


If you don't like it, don't watch it.  That's what I do.  But don't pretend that all the other fake scripted TV shows including dumbass "reality" TV shows aren't equally as fake and stupid. (With actors who put in much less work)

Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care about that case either. Oh well I am not one of those people I am 6'4" 245lbs and I exercise every day. I would love to see you say something like to my mother in front of me. Probably never happen though you are probably just an internet tough guy. I doubt very seriously you would say that to someones face. Just my thought.What do you think. Oh I am sorry you probably do not have a brain. I on the other hand will be happy to buy you a plane ticket to come here and see if you have the nerve to say that to someone I know.

That little(er) wrestler dude is a pretty big boy in his own right.  How fucking strong do you have to be to let him jump up on your shoulder and then you carry him around the ring for a while?  Holy shit, that big(ger) dude's strong.  


I wouldn't want to fight either one.  Fuck, that's like the dude that took a .25acp to the chest some ten or twelve years ago, and the bullet lodged in one of his pecs.  


I used to watch wrestling in the Stone Cold Steve Austin days and it was fun to watch. The story lines were so over-the-top outrageously funny that it was real entertainment.  I mean, Stone Cold backs up a tanker truck full of beer into the arena, pulls out a hose, and hoses down the McMahons?  Hilarious!  Of course, part of the fun was because my kids were into it and watching it with them was just good, plain fun.  I miss those days.

I once witnessed Wahoo McDaniel, Jimmy Snooka and John Paul Jones pull up at a convenience store in Wahoo's car after a match in our town. They each got a 12 pack and a bottle of wine. We bullshitted for awhile and they said goodbye and got into the car headed back to North Carolina. Hint, it's a show, nothing more. I also had an ex coworker who played Mr. X when there was a match downtown. He told me the same thing, that's it's only a show.

Nice straw man you built there.  

No, in fact I have yet to read a single comment criticizing the athleticism of wrestlers.  The ridiculous "story lines" and equally silly characters are what people are laughing at.  But it's pretty tough to make any sort of an argument defending the silliness that drives WWE characters, so you resort to a straw man.

ok....well.....TV dramas are scripted too,  but when the script says the stunt man falls off the horse,  he really falls off the horse.  That does not make the show 'real'

I'm not sure there is anyone who believes wrestling is presented as "Boxing or UFC reality".  It's presented as entertainment, and the promoters have never pretended otherwise.   You can piss and lol and about it being scripted, but fact is, that shit is dangerous and cripples or kills people.
