The GIF of the Week: Talk About Made for TV

Wrestling

I think all of us know that wrestling is fake.  Don’t get me wrong.  Wrestling is extremely dangerous regardless of whether or not it’s fake.  The athleticism these guys have is that of most professional athletes.  So technically I’m one of those people that actually believes a lot of this stuff is real.

Is a guy REALLY getting hit in the face?  No.  Certainly not.  But a guy is definitely lifting another guy up and slamming him down.  A guy is definitely jumping off that top rope.  The stuff pro wrestlers do is very very hard.  However, it’s moments like these that kind of make you laugh at the whole narrative.

Still though.  I miss the days of Hulk Hogan and the Iron Sheik.
