You do realise that the punch Ken took in WWE never hit him and he just pretends to be "rocked"?

To be fair the punch would have hit him it just wouldn't have had much on it. That said has this thread really made it this long?

That depends on what punchs the op is talking about. Sometimes they do hit each other with weak hits but other times they do just pull the punch back before it even hits. The no hit strikes and the irish whip is what allowed me to figure out it was fake after watching it for about 20 seconds when I was 5. (Not putting pro wrestling down, just saying some strikes are pretty obvious)

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.
what about finley. he's a fat irish "wrestler" or w/e. not only that, they have midgets in WWE too, and they use girls like they're a bunch of sluts

not to mention they also stomp their feet when they hit, to make it look as if they're trying to crack their skulls open
