Analyze This: It's no longer real
At one point of time, any wrestling fan who was watching wrestling would be put in a tight spot where they themselves doubt if wrestling was real or not but had to defend it from people who generalize that it is all fake, not scripted but fake as in film stunts except for probably guys who started watching in the last decade.
How did you handle it at that point of time and did it change the way you saw wrestling once you knew it was all scripted? Was there any wrestler who was good enough to sell the story to you even after you found out that it was no longer real?
I had a tough time for logically, if you were mess with the Boss, he would simply fire you (Austin/Mcmahon) and not keep fighting with you and then I read about Montreal screwjob breaking all kayfabe for me. I had to show them stories of injuries to tell them the action is real and results, scripted.
You think you can...turn me into a blubbering wreck...by preying on my fears...But I've already faced them--and come out the other side! You understand me? I know what I am...Who I am...And I am not afraid!~ The Man without Fear
