Lol, no it is definitely scripted. I like it for the story lines, funny and crazy parts, and athletic performance. Some of the best matches are actually between the smaller (but quicker and high flying) wrestlers. It is like how TV series and movies are not real, but people watch them for the story lines and entertainment. I also like boxing, UFC, kickboxing, martial arts, etc.I use to watch it many many years ago - but it was fixed.
Do you think it is for real today ?
Yeah Vince Mahon has made WWE into a global juggernaut. It is watched all around the world. Earlier this year they even had a massive pay per view in Saudi Arabia - SAUDI ARABIA - and they are having another big pay per view there next month!They even had "world Championship" wrassling on channel nein in Sydney back in the B/W broadcasting days.
A lot of American wrestler would do stints out here like Andre, red bastein. king Curtis. Killer Kowalski, skull murphy and brute Bernard or even Mark Lewin.
Some were "heels" like bulldog brower and others the guy in the white hat but it was all fun and a lot of blood flowed in the name of entertainment.
They held the big shows at the old Stadium in rushcutters bay and later years at places like the Hordern Pavillion.
That doyen of St George fans the skull used to go to these shows all the time when he wasn't skate boarding around Kogarah.
The industry really took off when Vince Mcmahon took over from his dad so no wonder he is a billionaire.
Didn't see any of the "lady" wrasslers competing in The Kingdom. Bit hard to put a leg lock on someone wearing a Burqa I suppose.Earlier this year they even had a massive pay per view in Saudi Arabia - SAUDI ARABIA - and they are having another big pay per view there next month!
The World Championship Wrestling (WCW) was bought by WWE in real life, but they had a cool story line about it. I am not sure if that was the company that you are talking about...
There were 3 matches between females at WWE Super Show-Down. There is a women's tag team called The IIconics and they are Aussie.Didn't see any of the "lady" wrasslers competing in The Kingdom. Bit hard to put a leg lock on someone wearing a Burqa I suppose.
Never heard of him but he has been struck by lightning and lived. He was also extremely good at doing a shuffle after he was hit and then falling down..You guys on here who used to watch older wrestling, do you know who Ric Flair is???
Haha yeah, well his daughter Charlotte has won the WWE women's world championship several times and she wrestled at Super Show-Down.Never heard of him but he has been struck by lightning and lived. He was also extremely good at doing a shuffle after he was hit and then falling down..
gouging??? i don't think so.I guess it couldn't be worse than that other nonsense on over the weekend. Supporters and fighters brawling. How it can be called a sport is beyond me. Kicking, punching, gouging, anything goes in a cage.
The only rules they seem to have is no hair pulling, eye gouging, biting or xmas holds.
