GO watch a movie call never surender, in that movie anderson silva gets his ass kicked and knockout. But some how in the ufc he knocks people out and never gets hit. Like the wwe, movies are scripted and people do what the script says.
Wait, if Silva got knocked out, then why is he still UFC champion? Shouldn't that guy be the new champion?

I DON'T GET IT!

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Hornswoggle can be flyweight champion. Of course. You guys have no idea about who we are talking about.

Your post is a little bizarre but I will say this. First of all Alpha Dog said it best...

Secondly, yes... 99.9% of WWE guys would lose a traditional MMA match against even a low teir pro MMA fighter. However the average "WWE Superstar" can kick the shit out 99.9% of the people walking the street.

Yes what they do is scripted. But most of those guys are there because they are such good athletes they can pull it off. What they do, while not acutally competitive is extremely difficult, and extremely grueling. The majority of them come from serious wrestling backgrounds, or legit martial arts backgrounds. At the worst, they are in fantastic shape, and have retain that constantly.

They are pro stuntment that work for 5-45 minutes at a time. Just because it's choreographed, don't let that fool you to how tough those guys are.

As the name shows, I'm a fan of prowrestling. People say things like 'It's fake and they're sell outs'. We are on a fighting forum, so tell me which of you guys watch Rocky and think 'This shit's awful, completley fake, this guy is a sell out'.

It's entertainment. I don't consider it a sport but it's highly athletic, which is why some wrestlers can move onto MMA. Guys like Brock Lesnar done WWE for the money, but guys like The Rock done wrestling because they loved it. It's a soap oprah for men, with all of the actors doing their own stunts.

What we'd all have loved to see is Batista actually getting into MMA. Would have been interesting to see someone with no amature wrestling background, but a pro wrestling background, making the transition. If he kicked everyones ass, some people would have had to eat their words.

They're roided up strongmen freaks who land on wood for a living, I wouldn't want to fight one in a bar, thats for sure. Just taking the chance of getting hit by a 6'4 240 lbs dude on roids is begging for a coma. Theres nothing wrong with what those guys do though, they're only there to entertain their fans (or piss them off for the show). And they put their bodies at serious risk to do so, whats the shame in that?

I think it's been taken in terms of the basic definition of amateur and professional.

Pro wrestlers make a lot of money from what they do.
Amateur wrestlers wrestle for college or high school mostly, therefore its usually extra curricular and no money is made.
