vince has been trying to bury the word wrestling since the 1980s. this is nothing new. tna are just trying to round up the iwc guys who somehow think this makes a bloody difference, even though both shows have the same goddamn product?

in my view though? its wrestling. what else am i supposed to call it?

It sounds far worse for it to be called anything besides "Wrestler" or "Wrestling" IMO. It sounds absolutely terrible when I hear guys like Triple H referring to them as "performers".

If the WWE actually want to come across as being its own self-contained "universe", then it should feel more natural. Hearing Wrestlers and Commentators refer to the "WWE Universe" instead of fans, the apparent non-use of Referee's names etc. It all forces me to again start thinking about the entire product just being worked.

they cant use ref names??? since when???
They do mention the ref's names.

But, I don't know, since about the 90s they've tried to not call the refs by their names to make the performers- I mean wrestlers- look more significant.

Any other questions that require the use of a billion and one question marks?

Yeah sorry if I'm coming off as a prick but damn what is up with this thread???
