When they don't break, it hurts a lot worse. All the table is supposed to do is cushion slightly the fall

I'm pretty sure they die of TBI, PED and painkiller related complications before traumatic renal failure sets in.

Actually, they are meant to break. That's the whole point. It hurts more when the table doesn't break (or when there's no table at all).

*comment on how wrestling is fake*

I might actually want to watch wrestling if not for the ridiculous writing which occurs to manufacture some contrived drama which is absurdly obvious and repetitious. Put two people in the ring to put on a stunt show with a predetermined winner; don't tell me the guy losing knocked out the referee and has his friend join in right then with a metal chair which he uses to beat on the guy winning only to throw the referee, who happens to regain consciousness at that moment, back into the ring to count out the guy who was winning but now is losing his title due to this nonsense interference, and two matches after his friend shifts sides because reasons... Those people are athletes, and executing those sequences with some dangerous moves is otherwise fantastic to watch.

Hulk Hogan vs Harley Race

And here's a match where the table broke when it probably wasn't supposed to, and as a result,Harley Race suffered a hernia.

Pfft. It's watching crap like this that's led to scripted "reality TV" and the inability by far too many folks to separate that fiction from reality.

I do appreciate the irony of observing that the folks who would happily shell out hundreds of dollars for WrestleMania, claiming that, "sure, it's fake, but the strength and agility demonstrated by the performers makes it worth it", are often the same folks mocking shows by groups like Cirque du Soleil, where more impressive acts of strength and agility can be found on a regular basis.

Face it - folks watch professional wrestling as much for the "Sweaty Slob Soap Opera" aspect as they do for the physicality.

It's the same thing as Greek theatre in the round, and the athletics are no different than watching the pre-scripted routines of Olympic gymnasts or figure skaters. I don't watch anymore (haven't for years) but yeah, I enjoyed the physicality, the show of acrobatic and athletic prowess, and yes, the stupid-ass costumes and characters.

It's no different than watching a sharpshooter, acrobat, or fire-juggler at the county fair, or enjoying a magic show. Scripted doesn't have to mean "phony"-- There's still a display of skill that is interesting to watch. People go to Ren Faires to watch "knights" battle and joust, and it's considered entertaining despite the fact that it's all practiced and frequently scripted. You go to theme parks and ride "It's a Small World" or "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" or "Star Tours", and they're a scripted ride that hits all the same points every single time, but people still shell out money to ride those rides and see the shows. People watch movies to see stunt men create an illusion all the time.

Pro Wrestling is a play performed by athletic acrobats, tumblers, illusionists, and stunt men. I don't see what the problem is.

Well, if you're going to frame it that way: the plot's predictable and telegraphed (even for kids), the writing sucks, the sets are lame, the actors can't act, and the narrators are too busy establishing their narration styles to actually perform well.

Oh, and far too many folks believe that it's real, instead of being yet another shiatty play with the same boring set pieces, shiatty actors, and trite narration.

It's either shiatty theater or a shiatty sport. There's a consistent theme here, though...

I refuse to be ashamed of my love of wrestling.

EVERYTHING people watch is crap. I'm supposed to argue with people who find duck dynasty, the bachelor, biggest loser, or two and a half men to be great shows and they think the stuff I watch is lame???
