No one ever said it was a sport.
Not like they all keep won/loss records (at least not public and not often - Goldberg's undefeated streak and 'Taker's Wrestlemania streak are exceptions to the rule). And yes, most of the endings are scripted, but things do change in matches where who wins changes mid-match. Raw is live, and the pay-per-views are live, so there's always interesting things happening that are/were not scripted.
What irks me is the people that think it's entirely fake. You know, the "none of that hurts", "none of the injuries are real", "none of the blood is real", type of people. A far larger percentage of things are real than most people believe.
These guys are athletes. Most people out there cannot do what these guys do (just try picking up 500 pounds of dead weight - not barbells - and lifting it over your head). So it's simply a matter of appreciating their ability, much like the Home Run Derby is simply appreciation for the hitters' ability. Not to mention that the majority of the time a major injury happens, these guys suck it up and finish the match (do the job that they are paid to do). Triple H ripping his quad completely away from the kneecap, having the muscle roll up in his leg unattached to the knee anymore, and still finishing the match is something that's got to be respected. And then he did it a second time when the other quad ripped away during another match. No other athlete in any sport out there would do that (with an exception for UFC, I don't watch, so I dunno on that one). They'd be done. Wrestlers are a different breed of athlete.
I've always said wrestling is basically a soap opera, but the difference is instead of everyone sleeping with everyone, they fight.
Speaking of things "not hurting" and "all injuries being fake", John Cena just had neck surgery today. Busted up a disk in his neck from a powerbomb Batista gave him (on that "fake"
ring that bounces, so surely it can't hurt to get slammed on it from 7 or 8 feet up in the air
Here's the real reason people watch wrestling. Let's be honest:
Wasn't really a fan of Christy Hemme's (and her gimmick with TNA wrestling is just plain nasty!
). I miss the days of Terri, Debra, Sable, and Torrie. Stacy was cool too and almost perfect, but she needed a moderate (and I said MODERATE - not crazy huge or anything!) breast augmentation. If she had any kind of chest, I might have called her perfect. Ah well, at least it appears Gail Kim will be returning to the WWE shortly.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
