Is Wrestling Fake Or Real? by basti1212(m): 8:03pm On Sep 12, 2017
Please, I want to know what you think on this. Is wrestling fake or real?
This is what this article says:

WWE: real or fake?

[color=#990000][b]
“If Shakespeare was alive today, he would be writing Wrestling shows” – Chris Jericho.

Chris Jericho, a veteran of the industry made the statement. If you want to know if pro wrestling is a theatre, go to the ground and watch it live! Forget about what you see displayed on the TV screen by the protagonists – it is camera work.

Do you remember that fight between Mankind and the Rock? Where Mankind got an inhuman battering from the Rock? Do you think those strikes that landed on his face really hurts? People who watch these scenes live not on TV will understand. Pro wrestlers work extra hard to convince the audience that their actions are true while making sure that their opponent don’t get seriously injured. Pro wrestling becomes real when the protagonists goes out of script and fake when they stay on script. Know that when two wrestlers enter the ring, both wrestlers already know who the winner will be – the fight was already arranged to happen that way and the wrestlers will just choreograph for the audience to watch.

Sometimes a protagonist goes off script or fail to choreograph his part well – this may result in serious injury or even death. A good example is Owen Heart, who died when he missed a choreographed fly into the ring. This one went terribly wrong!

Pro wrestlers try everything possible to make you see what they want you to see but not what actually happen. They are skilled masters in this. They are master illusionists.

There was a match sometime ago in 2014, if you can remember, It was between Brocks Lesnar, the UFC mega star who left UFC to join WWE. Brocks Lesnar was fighting against Randy Orton. As the fight went on, Brocks Lesnar removed his gloves and began giving Randy Orton a real pounding – giving Orton a gnash in his scalp. With Randy Orton in serious pain, the officials stepped in to call off the fight. Chris Jericho who came to check on Randy Orton after the match, was completely mad at Brocks Lesnar and the two got into a heated confrontation. Vince McMahon, stood in to separate them. Vince McMahon assured Chris Jericho that the fight went according to script. The plan was to make it appeared as though Brocks Lesnar had gone off script – according to the wrestling observer newsletter.

The aim of WWE is to entertain its viewers so everythings you see is stage played
Re: Is Wrestling Fake Or Real? by coolebux(m): 8:51pm On Sep 12, 2017
It's 50% real and 50% acting
But my family loves the show so much
Especially my little nephew Didi, he can kill for WWE gringringrin

The idea is entertainment. In particular, the enmity, the back stage drama even their characters are like movies.

The victories, depending on the scripts, are equally staged.

However, never get this wrong. The beatings are real. It's like extreme entertainment. It's like they are stunts men and women.

That's why they train hard, and rehearse their moves (before fights) to avoid stories that touch.

Try and allow someone slam you in a ring or give you RKO and check if it's sweet.

The only thing fake there is their back stage drama. However just like boxing, the fights, the back slams, and the injuries are as real as life.

not only on back stage either but on stage also, my bro said, if u look wrestling with mature person sense and eye you will get angry and not entertain, cos u will see so many acting and arrangements, but if u use small picking eye and sense, u will be entertained. cos small picking dey think sey boss dey die for film for real

Maybe there's a possibility that some of their stage fights are prearranged but definitely not all, people sustain injuries because of these fights, some have to undergo surgery, it's as serious as that, not to talk about the rigorous training, I agree that some things are staged for entertainment sake but not all.

Injuries come when a performer does not follow the script or when the performer is asked to pretend to be going off script. Go and browse about professional wrestling. Wiki defined it as:

"Professional wrestling (often shortened to pro wrestling or simply wrestling) is a form of performance art which combines athletics with theatrical performance."

That's true! When I was child, watched with small pikin eye and I loved wrestling then. But now, with mature person sense and eye, I just feel this people are deceiving me too much.
