“To fuck off. :-) Wrestling is predetermined. Predetermined and fake aren’t synonymous. There is a competition amongst us to succeed, if not, then everyone would be successful. The injuries are real, the medical bills are real, the time spent away from families is real and the entertainment that wrestling provides is real. Calling it fake is just a cheap attempt to demean what we do. I recognize that not everyone “gets wrestling” and I also recognize that not everyone likes wrestling, and that’s cool too. People that don’t like it should just not watch it. I don’t like Twilight, so I don’t watch it, problem solved. :-) Thx for the question.”
