My mum hates it, because it's fake, of course. But she's addicted to reality TV shows.

My dad wasn't a fan, but I remember watching Angle vs. Benoit from Unforgiven 2002 and he got really drawn into that one for the athleticism. He also took me to my first WWE show and even though he wasn't that keen on it, he got into the atmosphere once he was there and bought himself a Batista shirt.

No, I am gently and routinely mocked by all my friends and family for watching wrestling :lmao

When I was younger they took me to many shows which I'm grateful for, and they did seem to genuinely enjoy it live.

My mom and dad liked the Hogan era and even though they knew about the Attitude era weren't fans of it because of the cussing, violence, and sex, my mom especially didn't like the Attitude Era. They did like The Rock though. I still remember my mom having a long conversation on the phone with my dad about The Kat showing her titties after defending the women's championship since he would record the PPVs for me on with his hot cable box.

My Mum loves it, my Dad doesn't care for it.

My Mum is the one I go to all my wrestling shows with and the one I watch all the weekly shows and PPVs with. We've been to six Manias, two Summerslams, Super Showdown in Melbourne and a multitude of Raws, Smackdowns, NXT Takeovers and live events together in the past decade or so, plus indy events in Auckland too.

She's also the one who introduced me to wrestling when I was a kid, she watched it before I was even born and she used to date a local NZ wrestler before she met my Dad. So wrestling's just always been around our family cos my Uncle watches it as well and my Grandma did too before she passed away.

My Dad doesn't get it, but he puts up with my love for it. He's driven me and my Mum to wrestling shows before and he let us use his credit card to pay for Mania travel packages before my Mum got her credit card. He also likes all of my statuses on Facebook about wrestling even though he admits he has no idea WTF I'm talking about LOL. He also thought my love for Mox would be a phase and I'd move onto another wrestler before long :lmao He said that to me in like 2013, so joke's on him hahaha.

I got in to wrestling because of them. My dad still watches it, he is tired of WWE and their stupid storylines so I introduced him to AEW and he loves it.

My Father used to watch WCW back in the day with my brother and I in the late 90s. He mostly watched because we were in to it. I have told him about AEW and he said that he would maybe try watching it eventually if I thought that it was good.

My Grandfather was watching WWE for years until he passed away a few years ago. He kept saying that it was real, but I feel like part of that was from his mind slipping because of Cancer.

Literally the last wwe ppv we watched together. I missed the last one he texted me about because I needed to watch the Mets game. Fuck WWE. It made me sad to ditch my dad like that but no, I was not about to miss my Mets for one of the shittiest wrestling promotions on earth.
I love you daddy!! Im so sorry

See how cute he is... haha.

NOBODY I personally know likes wrestling anymore, least of all my family who probably think I need therapy at this point.

No. They did not grow up as fans. They did watch a little bit during the Hogan Era with my brother and I just because it was the thing we were into, but they were never fans, and never understood my obsession with "that fake crap" from like age 12 on.

They like the actual wrestling and athleticism that goes on in the ring; things that require actual ability, strength, or technique they do. But, they hate the cheesy storylines and fakeness behind them.

Right now, I would be absolutely embarrassed to show anyone that isn't a hardcore wrestling fan the Rusev storyline.

My mom liked it until she could see it was fake.

This was during a Saturday Nights Main Event when Hogan had a guy trapped in the corner. He stood on the bottom rope and then started to wail on the guy with the fakest softest open handed punches which were all clearly hitting his own hand, which was neatly placed on his opponents head.

The Hulkster ruined wrestling for her.

My mom doesn't care either way, and my dad used to like it. He doesn't watch anymore but I usually go over to my parents house for dinners on Sunday and If I tell him there's a PPV, he will ask me "who's wrestling tonight?" I usually just say Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker, because if I named any of the other current geeks he wouldn't know who I was talking about.
