I used to watch it when I was little (WCW and later WWF). But when I see it now I can't stop laughing. I can't understand home many (grownup) people can watch that crap. Some moves are pretty spectacular but most of the time it's just boring and fights look ridiculous. But the worst part is stupid talk and "insults" between wrestlers. Also what's with the championship. If it's all act how they decide who will get the title? By the popularity I guess. What do you think about wrestling?

I used to follow wrestling when I was growing up. You couldn't have told me back then that it was fake. I remember when I hit 19 or 20 I saw ECW for the fist time at 1am. I thought for a moment that it was real. Seeing those guys wrestle inside a dark underground gym and the fans handing them things to use as weapons. I stopped watching about several years ago once Stone Cold Steve Austin left. he is my favorite of all time. I mostly watched for the interviews and the funny skits they used to do with the wrestlers. That was more interesting than the match itslef. Unless you had some guys like the Hardy Boys vs edge and Christian in their famous ladders matches. Those guys would actually put on a good performance. Do you remember when the WWE had the hardcore belt, and the wrestlers woul walk around with their own personal referre because pin falls counted anywhere. I can't remember who, but I think it was Crash holly. whoever was the champ at the time was sleeping in his dressing room, and crash came in with a ref and pinned his a$$ and won the belt why the guy was passed out. Stuff like that is funny to wacth. But now it's just sad to see the old guys that you grew up watching still there. I mean Hulk Hogan and Rick Flair just quit the business. I think it's a popularity issue when they decide who gets the titles. I would think that Vince Mcmahon looks for the guy who has the best fan response and the best speaking ability in the ring and makes thise decisions. The last time I watched a wcw payper view event at the time, Hulk Hogan was over there, and I think he had a championship match with Jeff Jarret or Booker T. When the bell wrong Booker T laid down onhis back and Hulk Hogan pinned him with a confused look on his face. Some guy came out, I think his last name was Russo, and he and Booker T walked out. They were sick of the old time guys like Holgan not giving the up and coming stars a chance to compete for the championship belt. That's the complaint that I heard in the Chris Bennoit dvd interview he did. He said that the problem with WCW was that the company was more in favor of the old timers. Even though it is fake anyway, that's just one way the title belts are passed around in that company. It all comes from the writers and the owners of the company. But it does look real sad the few times I stumble across raw or smackdown. You got the late Eddie Guerreros wife as the commissioner. It's a joke seeing her in the ring, and i can't even believe the crowd respponds to her. I do find it surprising that wrestling is still on the air. But then again Jerry Springer still comes on as well.

I was always arguing with my dad if it's real or fake. I just didn't want to believe it's just a show even if I kinda knew it. I remember once Goldberg accidentally cut his head on the edge of the ring. He was bleeding but he continued to fight. And there was my ultimate argument- If he bleeds, it must be real hehe. But I gotta admit some of them were pretty charismatic. Sting was always my favorite. Thanks for the passing belt info.
