Aren't wrestling TV shows (like WWE) fake? Everything is scripted right? Then how come it gets talked about like a "sport", and "competition"?

  • Yes scripted but not to be considered fake. Injuries do happen.. In my opinion I don't consider wrestling or UFC a "sport" but definitely competition.

  • It's fake and entertaining, but some of the moves they do are still extremely risky. A fall from 6+ feet onto anything is still going to hurt, regardless of how padded and well trained they are to minimize impact.

  • Because that's part of the story. It's literally live theatre.

    • Yes, they often "pull punches" so to speak (i. e. not really hit as hard as it looks like from the audience), but when you pick a guy up over your head and slam him down on the mat, it's going to hurt. A lot of the high risk moves they do aren't fake, although they do practice them to minimize the potential for injury.

  • It's entertainment

  • It's called "sports entertainment." Like the Rocky movies.
