    Most definately faked or "fabricated", the WWE have a special phrase or term they use instead of "fake", but for the life of me i can't remember what it is called!

    However it is mildly entertaining and much better than Eastenders!
    400 channels and nowt to watch!

    Kayfaybe or working the mark.

    I have never really watched wrestling, never had an interest in it but now my kids have got into it I can better understand why they are so willing to suspend their belief. They know it is staged but they are still excited. The skill is quite incredible as is the athleticism.
    No.

    They must cause damage to their bodies the way they get thrown on the floor, and generally thrown around the ring, and they are not all youngsters. The Undertaker has been going strong for about twenty years, his body must be worn out.

    It is fixed or scripted, I agree, but what they do in the ring (i.e. the moves and such) is not 'fake'.
    Cosy consensus makes for a boring forum.

    Used to watch it as a kid and remember Razor Ramon as one of my favourites. The below like is a good reason not to do drink and drugs kids.

    Gotta admire what Diamond Dallas Page has done for him and Jake Roberts.

    WWE always do a "Wrestlemania night" at MSG a bit like Super Bowl parties, he's probably at that
    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    ahhh hall of fame. My bad, that was at MSG last night.

    Either way I wish I could have been there tonight. I know it's all scripted but still I think it is great entertainment.

    I don't care what you say about it being fixed. Wrestlemania has taken my breathe away. Undertaker vs C M Punk is possibly the best wrestling match I have seen in years.

    80,676 to watch Wrestling.... now that awesome.

    My bad, he was at the Hall of fame inductions on Saturday, Wrestlemania last night and he will be at Raw (?) tonight. I'm sure that he will enjoy it. This is something in the order of his 12th or 13th Wrestlemania.

    Nice leeds. If he was part of that amazing crowd at the Izod arena he needs to give himself a pat on the back. The crowd was nuts and is one of the best of all time.

    Well yeah he is possibly the best of all time but it comes to something when a CROWD makes you want to watch Raw because they were making their own memories and entertainment. I was at Raw in Birmingham last November and the crowd was pretty nuts that night as well.

    Chair shots to the head are banned because of the damage they actually cause (concussions etc)

    Many a time i recreated the beer can smashing thing in my early days of drinking, happy days.
    If you see a Possum, try to kill it, 'kay, it's not a pet.

    you mean you would get 2 cans of beer and say "mark 3:16 says I just wooped your ass" then smash two cans of beer together and then have a good time?

    If so I'm buying you 2 beers.

    Loved the crowd on Raw. I was cracking up through most of it.

    It's the chants in the Sheamus match that cracked me up. Randy Orton looked so pissed off with it.

    Maybe 7 years ago James, though I'm sure I'll do it again before my days end.

    It went PG didn't it. I remember Vince McMahon saying that going PG could kill the franchise eventually. Every fan loves a chair shot, barbed wire, pin tacks and lots of blood. It really is dumbed down and sh1t these days. I watched it lst week for the first time in ages and turned it off within 30 minutes.

    Catch glimspes of TNA every so often (don't have Sky) and can't believe how bad it is. I always enjoyed the actual build up and behind the scenes nonsense more than the actual matches.

    Stone Cold, E&C and Y2J were always my favourites, maybe it's because I'm older that I no longer enjoy it as much, but there are a distinct lack of personalities these days.
