    Since people were going off-topic about it inthe Post Your Picture thread, I decided to make a thread about wrestling. What do you think about it?

    Wrestling is the most ridiculous form of entertainment, right next to American Idol, "reality" shows and the news.

    It's so fake. I can't watch anything that's as fake as wrestling. And whenever I'm flipping through channels and it's on, all they're doing is talking! And insulting each other! There's never any wrestling!

    It's like one big fake soap opera with half-naked sweaty guys yelling at each other!

    Yeah that broadcasted stuff blows. I used to like it, but not so much anymore. But the backyard stuff and independant companies are real and very brutal. Ive seen matches in places that turned into slaughters. Those are the good kinds.

    "wrestling is fake" is the best arguement you can put across for why wrestling sucks? that's not even an arguement, that's a fact, you think wrestling fans don't know this when they sit down to watch the thing. Wrestling is sports entertainment, it's not solely based on wrestling, it's just as much entertainment as it is sport. Thats why I and most likely other wrestling fans watch it. To say that wrestling is just fat men groping each other is ignorant, only because it doesnt interest you doesnt mean others do not appreciate it.

    This is what i said in that thread. It's annoying when people say "yeah, but wrestling's fake!". I know it's fake. So does every kid above 8 years old. That is why i watch it. I'ts the entertainment side that has kept me watching for years and years.

    It's really hard to make people understand it when they don't watch it, just like anything that anyone takes an interest in. Wrestling fans understand, and that is all i need to back me up.

    I agree completely with you Casey, WWE has sucked big time, for a while now.

    Most people dont watch wrestling for the entertainment. They watch so they can see people get the shit beaten out of them.

    Okay, point taken, but storylines give a reason for the #### getting beaten out of them, it makes it that more special IMO. ;)

    I don't watch WWE. <_<

    Anyways. My arguement:

    The Indepedent scene of wrestling is something that no other sport has. Matches last up to one hour in some federations, and through the whole thing the fans are on their feet cheering.

    Take NWATNA's "X-Divison" for example. It takes AMAZING skill to do what they do. I can't really describe anything because word's can't, actually. They do 450 Degree turns in mid-air. I don't know, it's just entertaining to me.

    If you don't watch wrestling then it's stupid to you. What you saw Will was I'm guessing WWE. They suck. Plain & Simple. The politics involved backstage is disgusting.

    Wrestling is entertaing to me. I'm not going to try and change your opinion because you can't without getting the person to sit down and watch a show that's not WWE. WWE gives wrestling a bad reputation.

    Anyways, if you said something like 'Wrestling Sucks' in Mexico & Japan, you'd probably be publically criticized & beaten. Especially in Mexico.

    I'll leave you with this quote:

    In Mexico: it's a tradition
    In Japan: it's a religion
    In America: ...it's a joke


    I'm not trying to change your opinion. I respect it. I'm faced with this argument everytime someone finds out I'm a wrestling fan. It's nothing new to me.

    G'day.

    Wrestling is real. WWE/WWF is not.

    I typed up paragraphs of responses, and this man manages to sum up what I was trying to say in a sentence.

    I used to watch WWF (long time ago.) I knew it was FAKE - but I still liked it. I guess it got old - same old crap every week - that's when I noticed how boring and corny it was. I don't watch it anymore. For me, I guess it was just a faze.

    If I watch it now I can alwayz point out how fake it is. (Like when they hit eachother with chairs.)

    I can understand why some people like it - but if they think it's real - well - that's another story.

    -------------------------------------
    :offtopic: :D > I think they should have kept the name WWF > WWE sux.

    They couldnt for legal issues. The "World Wildlife Fund" took court action to licence the name to them and them only. :angry:

    Not their fault they lost the World Wrestling Federation name.

    the World Wildlife Fund filed a lawsuit against the WWF. They claimed they had an agreement with Vince McMahon's father, Vince McMahon Sr. that said WWF wouldn't use the WWF initals or anything overseas.

    Needless to say when Vince McMahon Jr. took over they used the WWF initials overseas and the World Wildlife Fund filed a lawsuit and gained complete & total rights to the initals to WWF.

    Yeah.

    Indeed it was.

    And, of course, I didn't mean that all wrestling is fake. Just WWE and WCW and all those other ridiculous ones.

    It's really crappy that the wwe can't even show old-school wwf shows without blurring the wwf images and logos.

    It's not the World Wildlife Fund's fault that Vince McMahon is an idiot.
