Exclamation How many MMA fans watch Pro Wrestling?

Hey y'all, just curious, I've never been a Pro Wrestling fan but I've noticed a lot of people here made the jump from Wrestling to MMA.

So are you still watching it or does your MMA feed your need?

I made the jump from watching pro wrestling to MMA. Like wrestling sucks now, but it was fcking great back in the days when WWF, WCW, and ECW feud. For me, wrestling died when Vince brought out the other major companies.

I used to follow it closely, but WWE essentially fell apart in the early '00s. It's too much of a spectacle at this point, and actual well-constructed technical matches are too few and far between.

The X-division in TNA is fun to watch, and they have some great talent, but they're afraid to let them carry the company, relying on carcasses from WCW instead.

I don't make time to watch wrestling anymore, but I always make time for MMA.

Oh, nvm. But yeah the only Pro-Wrestling I've ever had experience with was a WWF game on Sega. Man, when your guy gets tired you can't move! you just stand there and get kicked, and eye gouged, and slammed over and over. But it was pretty fun if you're not the one taking the beating, especially when you get a chair!

I get the impression a lot of current MMA fans are wrestling graduates...people who watched wrestling when they were younger but got into MMA.
As for myself, I used to love pro wrestling but now consider it garbage aside from a few really good matches here and there. WWE is a McMahon love-in that makes me want to puke every time you tune in and I can't get into TNA because their announcers are screaming fools.

I got into MMA religiously around 2001. Since then, my interest in pro wrestling has dwindled down. Now, I don't even care to watch it. Once you've seen the real thing, then fake fighting loses it's appeal, you know?

I've thought this myself. I can't understand the appeal of pro wrestling now that MMA is readily available. I understand wanting to check out the hotties with great racks in skimpy clothes, but I just don't get the entertainment value of the 'fights' themselves.
