I pose them the question about their favorite TV show or Movie.

Such as my father for example, always bashing me for watching wrestling.

"That's fake and gay, Ian."

"Hey dad, is NCIS real? Do they actually shoot people?"

That shut him up.


I do that all the time, I compare it to a movie/show and say hey Movies are fake but you watch them because it entertains you. I watch wrestling for the same reason.

Comparing it to movies or TV always works. Or, when talking to people with more refined taste, compare it to theatre. That's pretty much what wrestling is. A televised play.

Nowadays I don't run into that much. But when I let people know I do, I oft let them know it's for the drama and physical tricks.

This.

I especially hate it when I'm watching wrestling with someone that doesn't watch it and this is what they do the whole time.

"Did you see that there, that was fake."
"He didn't really hit him."
"They're not really mad at each other."
"They're not really hitting each other hard."

I'm like STFU when I'm watching a movie I'm not saying
"They're not really married."
"He's not really dead."
"He's not in jail in real-life."
"That's not his real name."

I tell them "years ago, I started a pro wrestling radio show. WWE is the biggest wrestling promotion right now. To have a pro wrestling radio show, it would be stupid to cover pro wrestling and not talk about WWE. Mind you, I think WWE is the worst promotion in regards to pro wrestling now in terms of booking, but it would be like a basketball show only covering college games, when the big leagues are the NBA. It wouldn't make sense".

Now, the defense of pro wrestling as a whole is different. I defend pro wrestling as a whole all the time. In fact, and this is probably terrible of me, I explain to people I can't get into fight scenes in movies because the only thing going through my mind is "camera cut. This isn't an actual fight, they probably took like 6 takes to do it. At least when I watch pro wrestling, it's in front of me and I know it's happening now".

Your father sounds rather immature to me.
