Why is pro wrestling scripted instead of having legit outcomes?

There's something that's bugged me for years... it's how pro wrestling is suppose to be scripted. Why aren't the outcomes real like NFL or NBA?

There's people out there who actually want to see legitimate wrestling, because they like the sport.

Is there a particular reason for it being scripted? How come you don't hear of the NFL or boxing being scripted?

Because if pro wrestling wasn't scripted it would be real wrestling.

And real wrestling is pretty boring to watch.

Because there are several moves that could kill or paralize. Ddts would cause concussions and neck damage. The 10 punches in the corner would have you punch drunk. The one winged angel would have you fucked up.

Come on dude

Wow! They let just about anyone have access to the internet these days huh?

You can watch "legitimate wrestling". It's on during the Olympics.

And if you think viewing figures for RAW are low? Watch them drop even further if they replaced it with that kind of wrestling

It does exist. It's called amateur/college wrestling or Olympics/Greco-Roman wrestling. I find it boring but you may enjoy it. Give it a shot! The Summer Olympic Games start July 24 and they will have it.
