I just saw a thread where a guy admits he likes it and watches it and I think he thinks it's real.

I didn't know anyone over the age of 5 could watch that shit.  So fake and gay and dumb.

I have tried to like it,  I have friends who do who'll get PPV and have parties,  and despite an almost super-hero-like capability for suspension or disbelief,  I just can't do it.  It's soooo fucking stupid.

Once we realized as kids that it was fake, we stopped watching.

What's the point if it's fake?

The truth of it is its "Entertainment"

Yes, its fully scripted, and in that respect, "Fake"
Punches are pulled, slams are setup, because they are putting on a show, however wrestlers get seriously messed up and have died doing it.

But they still are incredibly talented athletes/performers/actors/whatever-you-wanna-call-em and they do things that would kill your average person.
Also, most are huge beasts that would actually throw a real fighter/boxer/mma guy across a room.  6'6" 350 pounds isn't something you could fight on the street, even if they have no idea how to throw a real punch.

It's FAKE?!!?

This is as bad as when I went to watch The Lion King on Broadway! The lions weren't even real! You could even see a guy wearing a lion costume in it. I'll never recover from that.

Also, WWE has literal wizards doing magic, and murder, and kidnapping, and necromancers, and... wait, is that all fake too?! Is it just live staged entertainment?! Say it ain't so!

(I don't actually watch it, but I don't really care if other people do, and I see why they would.)

Really don't understand why anyone would want to watch that sort of thing.


Having said that, there are certainly weirder things people do to entertain themselves

The NFL in court has stated that the games are entertainment and not a sport. The NFL has charity status at the IRS. Do you think all of the bad calls in the NFL are by accident ?

There's a local wrestling show hosted at a climate controlled self storage place in my home town in Georgia. My buddies and I used to pound beers and go. It's three hours of not stop laughs. Best $10 you ever spent!

Back in the late 1990s an old abandoned mall had something like that here in Pittsburgh (I think it was PXW or Pittsburgh Extreme Wrestling or something).  Anyway, a friend of mind was a pretty big dude and we at first would go out and just have fun with it but he started to actually train to get in and had a few matches as a heel.  It was pretty hilarious at the time.  

Growing up I watched the Hulkster and the Macho Man and knew it was fake but wondered where the story might lead.  Then I quit caring around 1990 except for when my friend was getting into it.  Then it was "research."

In Jr High our gym teacher said when he waited tables, the faces and heels would come in to eat together like they were best friends.  He felt it was important to prove to us it was fake.

If you think American Wrestling is gay......

Check out Japan.



He is not gay in real life though.  Some of his videos are pretty funny.  Like the one where he goes around the streets in character and costume having young people call their fathers to tell them happy fathers day.

It's fake in the sense that it's scripted, but those guys get the shit beat out of them 300 nights a year.
Repeated falls and body slams and everything else they do takes a toll physically.

My roommate watches, conservatively, 20 hours of WWE programming per week, in addition to listening to several WWE-centric podcasts and radio programs. I have never really understood the fascination. He's tried to get me to watch with him, but I find the whole thing a little cringey. Last year homeboy spent $400 on a replica WWE Heavyweight Champion belt.

ETA Yes, he watches it on a TV in the basement.
