So how many of today's "professional wrestling" fans realize that it's all 100% staged?

Exactly like it was back in the 70's when I was watching it? Or do you honestly believe this is a "real" sport?

It is entertainment. It doesnt matter if it is scripted, as long as it entertains you.Yeah i have been wrestling fan for a long time as well, and i have seen better days. Cheers!

PG programming exposes that what they see on tv is intended for children.....if it was booked as a "sport" it would of been embraced by everyone.

I disagree--it is not staged, it is scripted---big difference. But also some wrestlers do not follow the script like John Cena. Also a lot of times things can and do get out of control as they cannot control their big ego's.

It's not all staged. The storylines and the results of matches are scripted. But some promos (like Cm Punks "pipe bombs") aren't scripted and are just created on the spot by the wrestlers. Also most of the matches only have scripted points. Meaning at certain points of the match, a certain thing will happen. Throughout the rest of the match the wrestlers talk to each other and say what move they'll be doing next.

Just about everyone who watches wrestling regularly knows it's scripted. That doesn't take away any of the enjoyment.































Movies and television are fake, and most of the planet still very much enjoys watching them. If you (not "you" specifically, the proverbial you) like those, then what's the huge issue with professional wrestling? Why is wrestling the only form of entertainment (which is what it is. It isn't a "sport" in the traditional sense. The wrestlers are athletes, but there's no real competition, so it isn't a sport) that catches crap for that? I don't understand that.
