Somebody getting put to sleep only to be "resurrected" by the crowd screaming? ....I tried to watch it a few months ago because i saw a hot chick on there....after 5 mins i felt so embarrassed i almost covered my face....
since this isnt MMA related fig i could post
if you think the fights are "highly choregraphed" you dont know wrestling... these guys fight up to 5x a week, there is no time to choregraph entire fights. They have big moves choregraphed and the finish choregraphed and anything pertaining to the storyline choregraphed (EG if you have to use a certain weapon like a hairspray etc etc). There is no way in hell the entire match is. Its 80%+ improv guaranteed so is this stuff they say on the Mic. Too many shows a week, a month, a year to remember fights move for move like a movie, i cant believe some of you actually believed it was like that....
as for it not being "real"... obviously the fight isnt real BUT the pain these guys live with for the rest of their lives is. There is a reason so many are addicted to pain killers and other drugs. The grind is unbelieveable and neverending, you need to find time to travel, workout, get prepared for matches, work out injuries, get your mic skills prepared, meet and greet fans etc etc 3-5x a week. Alot of these guys are never the same physically years later. It's not a real fight but you cant fake alot of the stuff they are doing aswell.
