    If WWE is fake why do so many ppl watch it? I was a diehard fan of WWE and no matter how much I read online or saw on TV about it being fake, I refused to believe it. But my views changed when I saw some close-up videos on youtube which clearly showed that most of the punches and moves were all fake, and actually were not that painful. It seems many ppl are aware of this but still watch it like hell. Why so?

    The only thing that is fake is the story lines thats why it is called world wrestling entertainment.some of the matches are scripted,but the moves are real.
    i have elder sis in U.S and i asked her whether it was real or fake.she said it was scripted.doesnt script means fake.then she told me whether watching a live circus is fake? i said no its scripted.so there was the answer.
    TBH i think all main events such as summerslam,wrestlemania,survivors,GAB macthes are real except for house shows like raw and smackdown.
    then again its just my thoughts

    Let me ask you a counter question, Even movies are fake, then why do people watch it?

    It's simple. The keyword is "Entertainment". If it's entertaining to a person then why won't he/she watch it.

    U can't compare movies with WWE. We all know that movies are not real but WWE is like a reality show; It's a sport. So any form of "unreal" behaviour or "match fixing" will make it lose it's appeal. Just imagine trying to enjoy a reality show like "Indian Idol" or even a sport like cricket after being told that the results are fixed just for the sake of entertainment. Wouldn't u feel stupid watching it? But that's not the case with WWE. The wrestlers (or performers) openly profess that the show is scripted (I agree that the moves real) but there are so many people still watching it. Why is it so? I don't think ppl watch it for the moves. It sounds stupid. Maybe kids will enjoy it but there r so many grown ups,especially in the US who r such huge fans.

    I don't think so. I've asked a very rational question. I really find it stupid and surprising that so many ppl watch WWE even after being fully aware that the show is scripted. I just wanted to know what others think of it.

    Who said that WWE is reality show or a sport? From the beginning, people know that it's not real. don't think too much about it.

    WWE is sports Entertainment, it is NOT Fake but it is scripted just like any hollywood flick. That animosity that you see between two superstars is the script and their fight in the ring is real. When I say the fight is real I mean the WWE superstarts are performers and they are trained for years to perform. When a star does a Tombstone Pile driver he know exactly how to deliver it and his opponent, who is at the receiving end, know exactly how to handle Tombstone Pile driver.
    If you and I were to deliver a Tombston Pile driver on some one, the poor fellow will ride an ambulance and we'll ride a police vehicle.
    But sometimes no matter how much training you get there are accidents and as a result we see several WWE super stars getting injured. How can one forget the long injury led hiatus of Shawn Michaels at the hands of The Undertaker. WWE is more like theater, performing live before the crowds of 1000s.
    WWE is entertainment just like movies and theater and we need to love and admire WWE superstars just like we admire movie stars and more importantly we shouldn't try and copy what these starts do, at our home or at our school.
