(Wrestling Inc)   First I was told that Lord Alfred Hayes sat in the House of Lords. That was a lie. Then I was told that the Undertaker was a zombie. That was a lie, too. Now Sgt Slaughter never served? I'm starting to think this wrestling thing isn't on the up & up   (wrestlinginc.com) divider line

Actually, there was a SFC Slaughter at Ft. Devens in 1985/1986.  I know, he was one of my instructors.

In wrestling kayfabe is the practice of not admitting wrestling is anything but real.

I think kayfabe, in this context, means in character. So non-kayfabe would mean he was purporting to tell the truth, but wasn't.

I would say that Irwin R. Shyster never really worked at the IRS either, but he'll probably be appointed to run it next week or something.

Kayfabe is the fantasy world that wrestling characters inhabit, and where their storylines take place.

A wrestler is basically an actor who does his (or her) own stunt work. Identifying events as Kayfabe helps separate their fictionalized storyline from any behind-the-scenes reality.

What Andre looked like outside of the ring...

It was all done with makeup and good camera angles.

Next you'll tell me Brett Hart wasn't really a hitman.

The term "kayfabe" itself may ultimately originate from the Pig Latin form of "fake" ("ake-fay") or the phrase "be fake."

Kayfabe may also derive from another trick used by traveling carnival workers. With money tight, a carny would call home collect and ask for "Kay Fabian." This was code letting the people at home know they had made it safely to the next town without paying for the cost of a phone call.

The Iron Sheik vs Sgt. Slaughter steel-toe match is my favorite match ever.

This from back in the day when the USA Network had wrasslin' followed by Kung Fu Theatre at noon on Sundays.

Wait. Does this mean Becky Lynch isn't a man??

Corporal Kirchner did serve in the military but was not a great wrestler or interview.

I sort of guessed that's what it means but wasn't sure. At first I thought it might be a typo, then saw it was repeated in TFA. Then I thought, you know, that looks a lot like "cofveve", and we all know Trump is a huge fan of wrestling. Then I found this:

It all makes perfect sense now.

Something some idiot dreamed up. If you're interviewing Sgt Slaughter, you're interviewing a character and everything he says is kayfabe.

Ahem. Lanny Poffo took $1 million of WCW's money just to be *available* to wrestle over a four-year period. He never suited up. That's pretty genius if you ask me.

Could white Americans please stop with the ideas about how to shame other white Americans for being inauthentic? It's really starting to get old.

Are you trying to tell me that Big Boss Man wasn't a sheriff's deputy from Cobb County, subby? And that I didn't need to perform those sexual favors in order to get out of a ticket? Boy, is MY face red!
