This is a staged show, however, of a very high quality. It is not a real sport, but rather is an entertainment show. Still the participants have high chances of getting damaged and injured, as some tricks are hard to perform. If one of them makes a mistake, they both can get hurt. For this reason all the actors get much training to take part in the show.

WWE is real, its an entertainment with its matches predestined, the moves they do in d ring r real, dose guyz r trained performers, if u want 2 watch a real fight, then UFC is d answer, but its not as entertaining as WWE.

The outcomes are pre-determined and the fistacuffs are pretty tame compared to an actual fight however you still need a considerable pain treshold.

Wrestling is REAL but designed not to hurt whoever is giving the move or taking it wrestlers practice to do moves and learn how to fall or in wrestling terms bump if a move goes wrong it will most likely hurt.

wrestling is a mind bender that if the move looks good and looks like it hurt it most likley never.

if the move looks sht and looks soft it most likely never hurt.

the moves look sore because the person taking it will sell it aka make it look like it hurt and the person taking it will put aggression on their face.

ive been training to wrestle for awile now and can tell you that it sometimes hurts.

Its very real when you talk of SMACKDOWN, Others may not be real, i even dout if ECW is real. But for SMACKDOWN, NO MERCY, JUDGEMENT DAY, EXTREME RULES, NO WAY OUT, WRESTLE MANIA, and many more. If you take your time to watch these fights you will see its not fake. Ask CHRIS JERICO what broke his front teeth, ask MATT HADY what is wrong with his hand, and many more, or was that part of the script? PLEASE TAKE TIME TO COMPARE ECW AND SMACKDOWN. You will then know the real and the fake. 75% of WRESTLING is REAL.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL

PLZ FOR HEAVENS SAKE, THIS THING IS NOT REAL because THIS GUYS PRACTICE THEIR SKILLS 4 A LONG TIME, THEY ARE BEING PAID BY WWE and of course , u  DONT HAVE TO BE TOLD THAT THESE GUYS TAKE A LOT OF STEROIDS THAT HELPS TO REDUCE THE PAINS,

If u doubt me, walk into any GOOD PHARMACY in ur town and ask 4 a STEROID, a u will  bounnd to get  JAMB BOOKLET filled with questions,

But, if I were right I wud say that when they challenge each other, its real but even at that I believe that there is still a high level of caution,

Pls, no matter the beef where u get with ur pally or with ur chic,pls don't try what THESE GUYS DO AT HOME!

PSP,

It's never been real.

I grew up on watching wrestling,AWA and NWA and i must confess,it looked real then.Ric Flair would make it look legitimate each time he was going for the world Title.and we would all be absorbed to tune in the next week to see what would happen.

WCW had always existed,in fact it ran parallel to WWF.But by then,wrestling had lost a lot of its beleivability.

Now,it's a farce.

The stunts have always been real (Mankind falling off a cage,ladder matches etc).The wrestlers usually end up worse for it.

But all matches are scripted,i.e. rehearsed such that they put markers or indicators as to when to carry out each move.

There are one that are real but all those one you watch are just for entertainment. They fake things and discuss all what they want to do at the stage before the fight. They discuss style, when and how they will do. I heard it life from mr Hulk hurgan.

Guy,

I have seen it:the one he fell from the top of a cage.

Read "have A Nice Day" by Mick Foley,the guy whoplayed the "Mankind" character.

Each uncensored fight is SCRIPTED to make it look real.

There is a thing they call BLADING,where wrestlers make marks on their bodies,especially forehead,to make it look like they've been brutally beaten so as to induce bleeding.

Wrestling is real in the sense that the moves are real.But like i said:it's all scripted.There's a winner and a loser before they enter the ring.

Wrestling:past,presnt and future is SCRIPTED.And therefore not real.

forget the drama.It's all make-believe.If you don't believe me,check on answers.com.There is what you call story-lines.It's entertainment,that's why 80000 fans can go to watch wrestlemania.

U guys need to watch what randy orton did to triple H's wife on smackdown, how chris jericho dealt with cena during his first after surgery, what matt hardy did to jeff hardy, how long it took undertaker to beat shawn micheal at wrestlemania 25, the list is endless. It is those that watch only local stations that say wrestling is fake. ECW is acted but definitely not smackdown or no way out. U guys need to upgrade yur knowledge on some things. During wrestlemania, a total number of 80,000 came to watch it. Are they that dumb?

*sigh* wrestling is most definitely 100% fake. i repeat wrestling is [/b]FAKE[b]. Seriously, do you really think someone could really get hit with a chair and not get hurt? Or even get their head slammed straight into the floor and not suffer from a concussion? if you want to see real fighting watch UFC. now that is real plus it requires a lot more skill rather than just brute force. just like in the ufc match were there was a ufc fighter vs a pro wrestler. the ufc fighter wasn't as big and muscular as the wrestler, but he knew a bunch of martial arts and different techniques. guess who won? (the ufc fighter won in case you didn't know).

I know it will be hard to convince doubters here that WWE is real and not tricks and whatever you assume it is. Especially all these their pay -per -view matches.

What do u guys mean by acting, nollywood-like? Even in Nollywood, most of the actions are real, eg when you see Omotala eating in Nollywood, isn't the food real? U see her kissing with Jim Iyke, isn't it real? Though it was acted but the eating, kissing are real actions not computerised images. But when u see Omotala flying as a ghost in Nollywood, then definitely that is not real, it's technologically manipulated action.

So when U see Tripple H hit somebody with the sledge hammer, do u mean 2 tell me is a ghost-like action? Whether the winner is pre-determined or not, d actions are not like seeing Bruce Lee flying from a 10 storey building to d ground or seeing James Bond shoot 20 people with his usually small pistol.

If it's reall why not teeth falling on the ground? That is where the magic dey that made u guys thing is fake. Those guys are licenced to take drugs that made their skin/body entirely different from ours. THEY TAKE HARD DRUGS

C'mon guys World Wrestling Entertainment! Even name gives itself away. It's just for entertainment purposes, the stories are made up before they get there. What's the probability that they know exactly where there would be a free chair that just happened to be a metal chair? That the person they're about to hit won't see them coming? They are just actors like the Hollywood actors except they're on steroids and stuff.

Truth is that no one would really ever know for sure because it's their trade secret and if people knew it was staged they'd stop watching. Get it?

Do u think any normal human being would want to be hit in the face with a hammer?

Them chairs are made of a light metal, making it easy for a trainned person to take a head shot, have u wondered why the chair always bends outta shape after its been used (lighht metal). Go and try it with ur father's chair and see if u wake up

Most blood on WWE are fake, wrestlers often carry blood packs that they burst on their face to make it seem like they are bleeding, why is it when they bleed it never lasts for long, if uve ever bled before u'll know that it doesn't just stop like that until u apply pressure on it or it cloths

How many times has the undertaker performed his pile driver on people, anyone who feels wrestling is real should come round my place i will give them one pile driver let me see if they wake up the next morning. These guys are more stunt men than sports men

hmmm

am not gonna write a long argument for you.

My only response will be try and enter the ring with the undertaker or john cena or any of the wwe superstars and go just ONE ROUND. Or have a chair

broken on your little back or have a hammer slammed on your face.

By the time you see stars, you will know whether its real or not.

Ma guys fake or not, E NO EASY.
