Is WWE a hoax? This is a question that has existed for as long as WWE has been in business. WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) is just as false as any movie or play you’ve ever seen. Since the early 1900s, professional wrestling has been a popular type of entertainment in nations such as the United States, Canada, Japan, and Mexico. Everything in professional wrestling is methodically planned. The wrestler’s demeanor, his match-ups, the movements he’ll do in the ring, and the things he’ll say in the ring. Everything is timed perfectly to add refinement to the entire entertainment part of the business.
Take a look at the image above, which shows WWE superstar Jeff Hardy perched on a very tall ladder, preparing to attack WWE superstar CM Punk.
Wrestlers begin their training by learning how to properly accept bumps and fall. All of the motions they make in the ring are genuine. The top-rope dives smash, power-bombs, and falls from the top of the cage are all true. The results of the bouts, however, are entirely predetermined.
Wrestlers go to great lengths to defend one another. They attempt not to throw real punches against each other in the ring, instead of relying on the ring to simulate the sound of a punch landing by stomping on the mat at the same moment. They even do everything they can to protect themselves and other wrestlers when doing slams, suplexes, and other high-impact maneuvers.
The blood you see in matches is occasionally genuine, but it’s also arranged ahead of time during the writing process. Wrestlers hide blades in their wrist tapes and cut themselves at the right time to add drama to the bout and boost the level of enthusiasm among the audience. As evidenced during a match between Eddie Guerrero and JBL in 2004, this may go awry. Eddie inadvertently cut himself too deeply, and blood poured out. After seeing how much Eddie was bleeding, the bout was rushed to a halt, and he and JBL were both taken to a hospital, where they were both given blood to save their lives.
WWE is as phony as movies get. Actors and stuntmen in movies, on the other hand, have numerous takes to get the scene just perfect. In wrestling, however, there are no takes. The drama, the suspense, and the ring movements. Superstars such as Dwayne Johnson’s The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, Bret Hart, and even Kurt Angle, the 1996 Olympic wrestling gold medallist, know how to entertain and enthrall spectators with their on-stage banter or their wrestling prowess.
