Any other fans of wrestling here? I've been a fan of wrestling as long as I can remember, and yes I know it's an act, but I like to be able to suspend my disbelief and get lost in the good matches and feuds. There is a lot of bad wrestling around that gives the form of entertainment a bad name.

What do you mean by wrestling?

I think fighting like MMA. I also have respect for actual wrestling, like the kind a high school would have. I don't have respect for the WWF/WWE. I don't find it entertaining and I don't like their in character pompous attitudes. I'm cool with the "wrestlers" when they aren't "wrestling" as long as they aren't dicks OOC.

For instance, my friend is really into RAW. He idolises John Cena. He showed me a few interviews with OOC Cena and we watched one of his movies and he's a pretty cool guy. He makes jokes and doesn't afraid of anything. I don't like him when he's in that damn ring acting like a gangster douchebag, though. [/rant]

EDIT: and I understand WWE is supposed to just be entertainment, but it's just not my cup of tea.

I mean wrestling by WWE. Yeah, a lot of people are like that. They just don't "Get" it. And John Cena is a bad example of a good wrestler. You gotta remember they are all playing characters at the end of the day - John Cena's character is a white rapper/marine who does it for the kids. He's widely hated amongst hardcore wrestling fans for not putting on good matches and being stale, although he is an absolute hero outside of the ring. He is the highest make-a-wish granter, and gives support to the arm troops like a MF'r.

These are some good wrestling matches, in comparison to most of the crap you'd see on RAW nowadays:

Ricky Steamboat VS Randy Savage

I'm only going to post those two because I know most people just laugh at it anyways and nothing I can do will change their minds - But if you feel like being open-minded then go ahead and watch them!

Also, don't get me started on MMA. MMA guys have lighter schedules than WWE guys. Why do you think Brock Lesnar went from WWE to UFC? Less work, more money.
