Is it Fake or Real?

The debate over whether professional wrestling is fake or real has been around for decades and decades. We all know it is mostly fake but they can have injuries and are professionally trained athletes. As a fan who watched for years, I can tell you none of that mattered to me.
It was entertaining and exciting with lots of action. Once you follow a certain sport, performer, or story, your brain and heart are in it and mine knows no difference. My husband still can’t understand the fascination with WWE but his reasoning is because it’s fake. He was a real wrestler in high school so his mind won’t switch gears with the actors and their drama in pro wrestling.
I understand, however; I remind him that most anything we watch on television or see live is fake as well. There are exceptions of course to this rule. Every actor in every role is performing a character for audiences to see that becomes entertainment. He never responds to this justification since deep down he knows it to be true.
I have said before I no longer watch WWE but have certainly learned quite a bit over my many years as a fan. There were plenty of storylines I couldn’t stand and many involved Warrior! I know he loved the bizarre and different but for my emotions, it was exhausting.
As the years went on it was necessary to introduce new concepts and tap into mainstream culture. Some things were horrific for me to watch and still haunt me today. I was never a fan of horror movies or death references so caskets, snakes, and voodoo were gut wrenching to sit through!
I can’t imagine the storylines today but it is not for me. Again, the “fakeness” didn’t matter one bit since my brain and feelings were not convinced. In some ways, it got me to start distancing myself from watching and by then it was just to see Warrior anyway.
The reality is being fake doesn’t mean you are not affected and there is a reason that you are. I certainly know everything I watched Warrior go through on my T.V. affected me good or bad. The actions might be fake but the feelings are real and always will be for me. 😳😊💓

I'm a wife, mom of 2 and have always been a huge fan of WWE’s the Ultimate Warrior despite his passing. I created this blog to share my stories relating to him that happened years ago and some are continuing today with his Spirit alive and well! I hope some fans out there relate and enjoy my blog!!! Check out my book “Spirit and Belief” on how Warrior influenced me in spirit. It is filled with humor, family stories, psychic terms, following my intuition, and how everyone has natural abilities we can tap into or get guidance upon.
