Default How can big time wrestling still be popular?

Or whatever it's called WWE? Doesn't everyone know it's fake? Should be call WWF for World Wrestling Farce. I watched this crap when I was like 10 when I thought it was real, by 11 I knew it was fake BS and never watched it again.

The only way I could watch it is if I had 2 brain cells and one was terminally ill. These clowns come in with masks and other stupid get-ups and proceed to jump around like chimps on crack. Falling on tables....oh yeah that's real. I just saw an ad on TV for some big match coming up on PPV, people PAY to watch the shit. Funny when they show the fans ringside, you would think to sell popcorn there would be a 3 tooth minimum requirement to buy a ticket!

Please tell me no one on THT actually watches this crap. And before anyone makes the comment "It's fake?" We all know that it is.

Because people enjoy it. It is just like any other scripted television show. Or are the only shows you enjoy so-called "reality" tv? I'm willing to bet you enjoy a show or two on CBS as you are right in their demographic.

The naked and afraid shows are actually real. This twitter thread describes the experience.

Boy, for someone that hasn't watched it since 11 years old, you seem to know a lot about it, Why does it bother you ?

Was a pretty good movie!

As to wrestling, yeah I used to watch it as kid...I remember Ivan Putsky and the Polish Hammer, and the Samoan Brothers, and Jimmy Snuka and the superfly punch. And some guy.>Haystack or something like that. Was fun when I was a little kid...and then got to my teens and realize how fake it was. And I have the same opinion of boxing..ever since Don King got big, boxing became a joke too.

Gordon Solie and Florida Championship Wrestling on Saturday mornings. My grandfather called me Race while growing up, after Harley Race. Barry Windam was our hero. The bionic elbow could have taken out Steve Austen, even after dusty was all but unconscious only moments before. If someone mentioned Billy Graham we thought of "The Superstar" before the preacher. Monday morning at school was dedicated to rehashing Saturday's wrestling events and discussing those that would be upcoming.

Then we had Hollywood hulk Hogan, slim jim macho man, the Monday nitro girls, and of course Rick flair, wwwwwwwoooooooooo! Took my wife to Monday nitro in the 90s and it felt like being in a huge insane asylum special for rednecks. The previous era had given way to a different fan base.

I didn't even know it still came on.
