    Why are Americans into wrestling?

    hey guys

    I'm European so I might not quite understand... but why are Americans so into wrestling? I simply don't see the point in watching two guys PRETENDING to fight each other, when I wanna see a fight I go watch UFC or Pride (where the REAL men are).

    I mean everybody realizes that it's show! They might be tough and huge but they ain't fighters, so why do YOU watch wrestling?

    The fighting is staged and the outcome is predetermined but the athletic skill cannot be denied and the injuries are real and the women are hotttt!!Movies are fake,staged,and predetermined by actors but no one ever wonders why they are watched.

    Reason why we watch movies is to escape reality for a few hours...

    Im not into wrestling myself.. i don't see the point of it either. But i have to agree with Jammer about the athletic skill involved.. It is somewhat impressive.

    We watch it cuz it's entertaining. Just like any TV soap opera, it has story lines and it keeps your interest. I don't care if it's "fake". Nothing is really fake, it's just well correagraped.

    I guess you just have to have grown up with Hogan and Sgt. Slaughter to know what I'm talking about.

    i've always said

    i can respect them for how hard they work, but i just don't find it entertaining.the acting is just way too bad to even listen to them speak.i gave it a try a few times when the ppv's were on, only because it was free on my hot box,haha.it just doesn't hold my attention at all. i do understand though that it is similar to a male soap opera so i can see it's draw potential. i just think it's rediculous to watch grown men pretend to be fighting and adlibbing bad punchlines and speeches.

    Americans watch wrestling because there's nothing else to do when NASCAR is over.

    Thats why we're so into hockey. Our hockey skills are the result of the short moose hunting season. That good enough for Y'ALL?

    Wrestling = soap opera

    F1 is way better than NASCAR imo

    Soccer is just a beautiful game.

    Okay, soccer? WTF is that, I have a hard time watching guys run up and down the feild and only scoring one or two goal.s I will admit that I did watch it when USA was in it (I think it was 1994).

    Baseball is one of the greatest sports there is. It's part of American history. Alsomost every guy here (that lives in the US) has their fond memories of going to the ballpark for the first time with their dad. Eating a dog and ice cream, watching your favorite team. It's a great game, next to football.

    NNow for wrestling, I watch it. But not religiosly. I like to see all of the crazy shit they do. The acting gets a little annoying. And as far as them being gay. bullshit! Fifure skateers are gay, not wrestlers.

    And when moose huntin' is over, they shack upo in one of those igloos and stick a line in a hole a pray that a fish bites. Onbly good part about that is they drink. Excess you know i ma giving you a hard time. Hockey is agreat sport as well, however, moose huntin'?
