All pro athletes are talented, but its about the will to win. Some teams and players have more will than other teams and players.
But in 1st world countries no way?
Could be. To be honest I have no idea what's real and what's not anymore
I live in a 3rd world country and it's definitely not like that. Lmao
I live in Morocco and it is like that
Then say it's your country and don't generalize
Did not generalize. I started my sentence with "maybe". Im not even sure if it's the case in Morocco.
The ref fixing scandals could be a ploy to present an image of otherwise fair play.
perhaps. i don't think so but it could be
And the teams in the biggest markets just happen to win championships more often. Which generates more cash from merchandise and tv rights then if teams in small markets were in the top spots. That could be suspicious
I agree, it's not on the level of pro wrestling, where every match, and perhaps every move is scripted. But I think it benefits leagues to build up stars, legacies and dynasties.
Back in the day the Seattle Mariners went out of their way not to make the best trades despite Ken Griffey Jr playing for peanuts because he mistakenly thought the owner would use the extra cash to build a better team. Wonder if team owners make deals with each other. Apparently some owners don’t care about winning even tho that sounds insane.

well said. #newengladpatriots, #thegoat, #theyhateusbecausetheyaintus
Scripted as in the champion is known at the start of a season (and certain storylines like individual player achievements).. you wouldn't have to manipulate every game. You can make sure a team is loaded (such as the Warriors) so they will win most games on pure talent alone. And if need be, you can manipulate a playoff series where needed.
Well here that would be how boxing works lol
SO TRUE! the computer does anything to break your winning streak!!
Fair enough. If it was revealed that they were rigged to some extent, would you still watch?
No because It would be worthless thats not a true competition
So you shouldn't watch hollywood movies either. WWE is a live theater. They never said otherwise. It's always been like this and it's enjoyable. Just a like a movie.
Actually WWF they always denied it and made it like it was real until the early 90s when the governed bodies told them to come up with the answer true or false is it real or scripted they finally admitted it to save a big bunch of money saying it was fake I don't know all the In-N-Out details. Sports boxing MMA NFL is the real deal or I don't watch it. Sports is not a movie. Boxing the reason it's a shady sport is because of the judge's sometimes they are paid off
I didn't know that! i started watching WWE at the time WWF when it was the last years before they change the name. But yet, i believe you are taking it too hard. Because WWE is not a sport. By that i mean it's not in the same category as Tennis, Baseball, Football, basketball etc.. . it's literally a movie. You just missed out what is the true identity of WWE. It's a business company that provides scripted storylines like a movie. But instead of being edited and recorded, it's like a live theater. However, how can you not appreciate the hard work they put on to entertain. The athleticism is real. They practice everything carefully beforehand is real. The risk of injury is real. The courage and gut do the stunts live in front millions of people is real. The enthusiasm they create is real. And the excitement of off-script things that can happen plus all the entertaining personas, costumes, themes and competitions they provide is real! If you appreciate Hollywood movies. You can and i feel should appreciate WWE. There is so much hard work behind what they produce. Besides, one thing you can never take away is people's reaction. People make a huge role on how the storyline continues and how they accept or reject a certain character and how they react to different personas.
Lol I've known pro wrestling has been faked since I was old enough to watch it. I've been told that and I also discovered it just by watching it live and in person. I've also trained at a professional wrestling school with ex professional wrestlers. They call it Sports entertainment I never said that it was a sport like football
I didn't understood the point of your comment. Of course it's called sport entertainment this is what WWE stands for. World Wrestling Entertainment. SO? It's even more odd a guy who trained wrestling calls wrestling FAKE. LOL. There is nothing FAKE about wrestling. Do you call Hollywood movies fake? you seem so clueless how to define a wresting environment as the guy who actually claim to be around it. It's just odd is what i'm saying. It's even more odd the guy who trained wrestling says [that's not true competition] as it's obvious you didn't know anything about before and understood it at some point. There is so much imbalance statements in your comments.
This whole time you're going on and on with GIbberish. A movie is not the same thing as a sport or professional wrestling. You're not going to justify your statement to talk me into believing that. You might live in the world of Make Believe everything is just entertainment for you like a movie but not where I come from. A make Believe movie is not the same thing as NFL football, the ending doesn't always come out the same. I got things to do you're taking too much of my time up
Boxing? There's so many controversies in that sport.
I don't watch boxing so I don't know.The only combat sport I watch is MMA and it's 100 percent real
