There is a lengthy thread on the BBS about WWE wrestling which has been running for years and includes many comments on how good a certain bout was and that X was a worthy victor.

Do these people not know that it's not really a sport as everything is highly choreographed down to the nth degree?

I took my wrestling mad son to the WWE night in Birmingham a couple of days ago and we had good seats so it was possible to see the punches and kicks that weren't actually connecting but the couple of mid twenties lads sitting behind were chatting as if it was all real.

Anyone here think it's real sport?

No it's not a real sport and WWE themselves call it 'sports entertainment'.

I actually went on a work jolly on Tuesday and if you take it for what it is, it's a good laugh.

You're right that some of it is choreographed but I don't believe the whole match is. The winner is predetermined but much of the 'moves' they talk through as they go.

Effectively they are stuntmen/women and given the nature of it, understandably appeals to kids and Americans.

You shouldn't be surprised that people are stupid.

Of course, you do get hurt and sometimes badly hurt wrestling and some wrestlers really don't like others, which sometimes spills over into the ring. I can tell you that for a fact.
I guess that seeing men on steroids battering each other is still appealing to the young, but surely anyone over 10 years old should know that the results of the fights are pre-arranged and the fighting largely rehearsed.

f*** the X factor, BGT and other s***e, what we need is a genuine gladiatorial show(with weapons)
Now Kyle thingy has lost his show there is a void to be filled, pandering to society's cruelty.
If they cant have knives, axes and clubs maybe just large dildo's to whack each other about with.

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

I'm beginning to see how ancient Rome evolved.

Someone must have banned Jerimus Kylicus' circus of idiots.

Definitely real when they smash chairs on each other. I tried it in the pub recently just to verify.

Sports Entertainment is very misleading.

"Men in hot pants slapping eachother's chests and very obviously ducking punches whilst somehow looking flat-footed and unathletic despite clear steroid abuse" would be accurate.

There's a thread on BBS you say? Of course there's Palace fans out there who think this is real, why doesn't that surprise me?

Sports Entertainment is not misleading at all.

they are wrestling which is a sport and then you have the entertainment side which is the drama story lines etc.

It is a lot more physical then you think I remember when I was a teenager and went to wrestling camp thinking it would be a bit of fun far from it very physical also you need to be in good shape which steroids wont do (just popping pills doesn't make you a big guy you still need to put in the work)

only people that have never done sports or anything like this will come out with rubbish like you had you done any of it you would have a far different view.

The punches/kicks are pulled so not full on real but all the other hits are real you can't fake the bumps and the slaps.

Hahahaha!

Wow. Admits to going to wrestling camp and then says "Only people who've never done any real sport" . Oh my days, that gave me a great laugh.

Just imagining you all Spandex'd up. Was your ring name the Mort-ician?

Brilliant, fair play son. Great stuff.

Just like our political system. It's all rigged and choreographed.
