The moment when you realized wrestling was scripted. Or, if you didn’t have a moment per say, when you came around to it.
For me, it was when I was 14. Yeah, that’s old. I had pretty much knew what the score was, but the final nail in the coffin is when a friend of mine brought his uncle’s copy of what must have been the WON or something to that effect to school. I read about all this crazy backstage stuff, and how Macho Man agreed to do the 6-man tag at Starrcade 1997 so long as he got the pin. Right then I had to come to grips.
When I was a kid I’d argue with people, and say things like “You can’t fake a Razor’s Edge or a Jackknife!”. My mom would say things like “If the nWo isn’t under WCW’s employ, how are they making any money? And why wouldn’t WCW just call the cops?”. To which I’d say “Duh, mom, they have BILLIONAIRE Ted on their side. Plus, WCW knows that the nWo is all money, and all ratings. They don’t want to lose that!”
How say you?
