Dope or Nope ...

So, what are your thoughts on pro wrasslin'?

Is it an escape from reality, where you get to watch complex stories unfold, and latch onto good vs. evil? A "show" where you can tune in every week, and root on your favorites? Do you hearken back to the 1980's when Hulk Hogan was taking on Roddy Piper and Mr. Wonderful in the "Rock vs. Wrestling" era? Do you wish you could see another Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Rock match? Were you in heaven when the Monday Night Wars were at their height?

Or is it absolute horse-crap? Would you rather watch paint dry? Does this seem more absurd than NASCAR (sorry, NASCAR fans) or Paris Hilton? How can people possibly sit and watch this fakeness and talk about it?

So, where do you stand?

I'm going to go with NOPE.

I'm gonna vote in the middle with "MOPE".

The stuff is pure horseshit, but in the mid eighties after a good puff off some weed, I could watch it.

I used to be so into this. Then I learned it was fake. My heart broke.

Jeez, how many different ways to say NO?

How can anyone watch that crap after Chris Benoit murdered his family? Maybe some people can't get enough violence against women, or don't think the premature deaths are all that alarming.

Also, Vince McMahon has made a fortune mimicking a perfectly good sport, yet has never supported any amateur wrestling program.
