It's a bit different when it comes to sports though... you can't tell me you would be 100% cool if it turned the NBA was fixed?

Sports are athletic competitions. Professional wrestling is sports entertainment.

Wrestling is taking athletes and creating storylines.

Now, yeah...give me a real sport that was competitive the entire time I was alive, then flip the switch on me? Different story.

I respect pro wrestling because I've actually been in a wrestling ring, and I stood in the center of it, jumped in the air and landed on my back, and it not only knocked the wind out of me, but also gave me a sore spot on my shoulder blade for about 3-4 nights. Not off the top rope, or flying over the rope...just a simple backdrop.

Back when I watched wrestling, guys were jumping off of ladders and landing on tables outside of the ring. From the top of the ladder, to the floor, it's a massive drop. Same with a 30-foot tall cage, onto a table.

When I was younger, I wasn't watching wrestling just to see who won the match. I watched it for the entertainment, the storylines, the athleticism and amazing feats that guys like Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant (two of the greatest bball players ever) couldn't deal with.

My girlfriend was actually laughing at the show two weeks ago, thought it was stupid. So did I. I haven't watched wrestling in almost a decade, it seems. However, a few days ago, I showed her a match that happened back in the late 90s, showed her one that happened around 2002. Then, tonight's return (of The Rock)...she thought it was awesome. Not turning her into a fan, of course, but she admitted she would be more into it if he was wrestling, full-time, and some of the best wrestlers in the business back in the day were still going strong.

It's much more than just winning a match.

I respect wrestlers because they travel 365 days a year from city to city they do not see their family enough. As for NBA, MLB,NFL etc its half a year and they get to have time off. The only time off wrestlers have are either when they are injured or ask for a leave but you can't ask for a leave all the time. These wrestlers live off hotel and food they do not want to eat sometimes and still have to workout everyday just to keep their body the way it has to be because they are entertainers, that is why many wrestlers die at such a young age because their body is so worn out they have to take drugs to make it pain free. So they have my respect because they work their asses off literally.

Relax. I never pay attention to what area threads are placed in. Whatever. Enjoy ur fake sport that is all acting anyway.


What is your deal?

If you have nothing good to say then don't post in the thread. It's that simple.

Anyways, it was awesome to see The Rock back after seven years. I tuned into Raw just to see if it was true that he was coming back. Brought back great moments. I felt like a kid again :rock:

No, i can stomach a heel cena, but not Miz. Seriously, you need to be slap 1000x. :laughing:

I hate him not because he is a good "HEEL". I hate him because he flatout sucks. His character is [expletive]ed up and it baffles me he's still on WWE. But yeah, WWE has changed.
