Still training, saying my prayers, eating my vitamins and believing in myself.

Re: When does a wrestler learn if he's going to win or lose?

It's a case to case basis.
Sometimes it is planned well in advance, other times they are still weighing out the outcomes as the match approaches.
Even when the match is planned well in advance they often change the finish at the last minute.

Not removing until (X ) Ric Flair shows up on TV stone sober.(It looks like he did it. Good for you Naitch

If anyone is interested in purchasing ultra rare footage of Pat Patterson winning the first Intercontinental Championship in Rio de Janeiro just send me your PayPal username and password and I'll take care of the rest.

I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life....Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe - Abigail Adams

I bet Bray would love to win sometimes.

Caring about your paycheck will lead any wrestler to prefer winning because success adds to your brand value and performers higher in the card get paid better.

Fuck WWE. It sucks, and I like watching it.

AJ Styles - Dean Ambrose - Cesaro - Kevin Owens - Bray Wyatt - Sasha Banks - Brock Lesnar - Asuka - Natalya - The New Day

I always thought they get told backstage before they go out

Re: When does a wrestler learn if he's going to win or lose?

I think it depends on the match, I think most Raw/Smackdown matches might be day off. Ive read many wrestlers say they talk about the match and go over spots in the locker room/gorilla position before the go out.

The Montreal Screwjob was planned out ahead of time. In a SI interview I read w/Scott Hall he talks about going over the Sting vs HHH match in a ring in the parking lot and how him and Hogan looked at Sting like he was crazy when HHH said he was pinning him after the sledgehammer spot.

Some matches might be changed on the fly depending on the reaction the wrestler gets: Roman Reigns vs Brock WM.

Regarding roman at the end of wm31, i heard in a Rollins shoot interview that he didn't know he was winning till deep into the show. I don't know how true that is but i will assume it is true, so i guess roman couldn't tell his family.

As far as your average match, i think they find out the day of the match, give or take. I think they usually go over the match and/or spots, and maybe rehearse. I would guess they normally know what's going to happen before they go out there. Plus, they probably have a pretty good idea of what direction the company is usually going.

I remember hearing a Bret Hart shoot interview about how Vince told him he was winning the world title his first time the morning of the show. It was a pretty cool story.
