ST: Do not talk to me about fake
by Saz on 6 January 2008
There’s a saying in wrestling.
The person who says that wrestling is fake knows nothing about wrestling at all.
Say fake to people like Chris Benoit whose “fake” concussions turned him insane, say fake to Sid whose leg broke in half after the merest of falls, say fake to every single wrestler who has been through agony just to entertain people.
Critics of wrestling make me sick to my stomach, who approves you? You who have never felt the pain, or has had to go through any sort of agnony to decide that it is enough to make you an expert!
You watch us, you tell us how good you think we are and you don’t have the balls to go through what we have gone through, just for the approval of people like you.
You make me sick.
let’s get one thing straight, wrestling can be predetermined, wrestling can have a fixed outcome, but do not insult the time that has been spent in entertaining you as fake.
For those that have never experienced wrestling past the WWE and Smackdown vs Raw… Wrestling hurts, Wrestling demands and Wrestling will take every ounce of life from you.
Whatever anyone tells you Wrestling will never, ever be fake.
So imagine my amusement when someone opens their “look at me, don’t I know all about wrestling” with the line “Wrestling is fake, I hope I haven’t scared anyone away with that shocking revelation” tells me two things, one, the person doesn’t know anything about wrestling, the second, the person doesn’t have the respect to see wrestling for what it is!!
And this abuse of what wrestling is all about tends to sum up the shit that some poor bastard who earns from nothing to thirty quid has to put up with.
And that is what you are said abuser, nothing but an ungrateful abuser of what is an art, like a drug addict criticising your Heroine. The drug is there and you are addicted, else why turn up each time to criticise.
You can’t stand to be without us, you cannot stand to be apart from us and you cannot stand to be not one of us.
So you hate us and criticise us.
And this is the description of a Smark, a resenter of wrestling.
