    What do the Rock, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and the Undertaker have in common? Well, I know what they don’t have in common. They aren’t known for their fighting prowess.

    Look, I don’t pretend to know too much about wrestling. But I do know one thing about it. The fake fighting doesn’t help the sport. It makes it look ridiculous and it should be abolished. I’m not saying that in reaction to the Lundberg’s blogpost, I’m saying that in reaction to common sense.

    There may be counter arguments thrown my way like ‘but everyone enjoys a good fight’ or ‘the fights are the reason I watch’. Those don’t really hold weight. Wrestling’s ratings are not in the same stratosphere as football, basketball or baseball, so fake fighting as a ratings ploy is a failure. And yes, people do love watching a good fight but that is what sanctioned boxing and mixed martial arts bouts are for; you know, actual good fights. Wrestling should be hoping fans are searching YouTube for spectacular techniques, not fake amateur knockouts.

    Wrestling is a contact sport. So is football and the NFL doesn’t allow the same shennanigans. Isn’t fast-paced, high impact action enough? We’re talking about a game that is essentially the cousin of ass-grab in a real men’s prison shower combined with the poor acting and drama skills in a women’s prison shower scene; similar goals (pin your opponent) with different rules and equipment. Again, neither of those sports allows impromptu rakes-to-the-face.

    Seeing guys try to throw fake punches in tights is entertaining on the surface but it creates the wrong perception. And if you don’t agree with me, I have a metal chair under the ring waiting for you.
