Lifting weights and eating steaks
The majority is fake though.People and even wrestling fans who call wrestling fake, show absolutely no respect for the people who have LITERALLY DIED for this shit
In an era 50 years ago where kayfabe was alive, sure I can understand wrestlers being annoyed at it being questioned as fake as part of their act was maintaining the illusion of it being real. Almost like magicians, part of their act was to make you believe its real.
But in modern era? Where kayfabe has been dead for 30 years? Everyone knows its not real.
I never understood the comparisons to movies or TV series' either. Sure, Raw IS a TV show but its live and the premise of it is live action of fake punches and kicks and pretending rest holds hurt. You can't compare that to anything else.
"oh but Game of Thrones has dragons" - and? They aren't live, where fake dragons would look ridiculously stupid. It's a story full of characters and intricate details thats designed to have a start and a finish with a designated plot. Wrestling is live, it has no end date or one designated plot to get you from one end to the other, it has to keep going.
I feel like I'm just rambling now but I'm sure you get the point.
People who moan or get butthurt over the fake thing just seem weird to me and they tend to get overly defensive too.
Its entertainment at the end of the day. Why get hurt over it?
I mean I call it fake and I have respect to everyone one of the guys who wrestle every night to get a pay cheque for something they love.
FFS, Vince has called it fake numerous times. I'm sure he respects alot of the people he's paid money.
