I will never argue the fakenaicity of wrestling. However, they still take some hits I would never want to try. Falling off that ladder probably sucked real hard.

It's a soap opera for Bros, but yeah, they take some abuse in the process.

I saw some thing on tv way back about how the mat actually is not very stiff so when they land, it acts almost like a spring and absorbs quite a bit of the impact.  Because of that springiness, it also makes quite a bit of noise so it gives the sense of a huge impact.  Still, it's gotta sting to fall from a ladder or from the top rope.

Yea all this steel and plywood looks soft like a mattress. and just look at all of those non-existent springs!

Look, I'm not denying the outcomes aren't pre-determined and that some of the punches and kicks they take aren't full force (because that's a basic truth) but I don't care who you are, jumping off of a turnbuckle and landing on that ring hurts. No matter how much you've been trained. Being thrown down on it hurts even though you've been taught how to take a fall.

These guys get hurt, sometimes on purpose (blading) sometimes by an awkward fall or a spot gone wrong.

But I'd love to see you tell one of these people (either man or woman) that they're basically performing on a giant mattress to see what happens to you.

I admire the skill it takes to pretend to slam each other around like that without anybody getting killed. If it was real, there would have been several fatalities in that video.

Good thing I wasn't claiming the ring was cement. It isn't a trampoline or a bean bag either. You will note he didn't "bounce four feet in the air" upon landing.

It's certainly not hard, like you're trying to claim. I get it though, you've been devastated ever since learning that wrestling was fake.

Please show me where I claimed that.

According to Mick Foley (who would know - the man has fallen or jumped off everything possible in a wrestling match), prior to 1998, WWE mats were among the stiffest in the industry, very little give resulting in numerous injuries for the workers (in Beyond the Mat, the two indie wrestlers who are given a WWE tryout comment on just how hard the mat is compared to what they're used to). Since then though, they've been redesigned using flexible springs which absorb a great deal of the impact from bumps. You're still going to feel it but it dramatically reduces the chances of any sort of impact based injury.

They abuse their bodies way too much for something so fake.  So many of them die before 50 from general wear-and-tear, addiction, and depression...it isn't even funny...it's sad.

It's not "solid" like a concrete block but you are landing on steel beams with plywood on top and a few layers of what can best be described as carpet padding and then canvas on top.

I also see you're not familiar with Mick Foley and just what that match did to him physically.

You're an idiot and proved it as such.

2013-09-15 11:15:40 PM
It would make sense to signal when you're ready for some moves, to avoid serious injury, or help remind each other about key points in the script, or modify the script to account for unexpected injuries.

Anyone who believes Pro Wrestling is real, completely and fully, is a rube.  They are athletes and actors, playing a show for the fans, in a way that will excite fans in the way they desire.  It's dangerous work, but they have century and decade old acting techniques to help them.

Even with the fake hits and scripted matches, I wouldn't want to set foot in the ring against them, because even with all the precautions taken, that shiat is gonna hurt like a mother.

Yeah, the fakeness and the choreographed stuff is obvious, but I'd argue that doesn't actually make the job easier. In fact, it probably makes it harder. It's one thing to kick someone's ass, it's another to do this kind of thing for a living without injuring yourself or your opponent.

/also the ladder thing at 2:00 was pretty damn spectacular

Sorry, but that isn't a WWE ring. Having built a few as a stagehand I can testify to that fact. The corner posts of pro rings weigh up to two tons to hold the tensioning setup. They aren't exactly soft, but for combat stuntmen, which is essentially what these guys are, they prevent injury when landing. Also, working as cable page next to the ring during performance, yes, you can hear these guys are doing on the fly choreography. I've had lunch with Hulk Hogan and his pals a few times. They are always thinking of new moves to try out during the performances.

I remember the "Bulldog" move shoutout from WM8 but I have to be honest and I know these guys call spots, I never notice it although you can see them talk to each other. Easier to see in HD back when I cable.

One that wasn't listed, I remember Triple H and Kurt Angle in a match where Triple H said something like "this is big moment Kurt" during a superplex or something.

Actually, I think they injure themselves a lot and frequently.  Their bodies are destroyed when they "retire".

You do know that isn't a WWE ring don't you?


I do but the ring construction is more or less the same. I've been in arena's when the ring has been put together for the WWE. There isn't springs or anything like that to reduce the impact from falling. They are all held together by the same shiat. There are things you can do to reduce the impact (such as adding more padding) but if you add to much it ruins your footwork and ability to move around the ring. It's always a compromise.

It still doesn't change the fact that the ring is not a giant mattress or trampoline.

And when someone does something stupid, it goes quickly from "staged pulled/reduce impact punches" to "full on ass kicking"....ask anyone who has ever worked with JBL, Bob Holly, Triple H or Vader.
 
2013-09-16 11:25:53 AM
Here ya go, this is the closest (distance wise) I could find for the WWE rings. It's being taken down instead of put up but gee look at that, no springs or mattress material.

AeAe: ctually, I think they injure themselves a lot and frequently. Their bodies are destroyed when they "retire".


That and many of them become substance abusers to deal with the pain.  They don't get paid if they don't work....so many of them are taking painkillers to deal with their 150+ appearances a year.  When they retire it's exacerbated.  There's a reason most of these guys don't live to old age.

It actually impresses me more that it's fake. The choreography, skill and athleticism to pull it off and not hurt each other is amazing.
