WWE Officials Upset with Popular Star, Backstage John Cena News, More

    I wonder why, when hit with a steel chair yes it hurts and can do damage (even though pro wrestling is fake a chair isn’t), wrap a chair around someone’s head and slamming your 200+ pound body on it there’s always chance of injury….. If hardcore fans (no names will be mentioned) are going to comment telling me it’s 100% fake, don’t waste time typing it

    • Rene Ramirez

      No its not fake wrestler protect them self and take lots of hits its scripted but its not fake Im a hardcore fan myself WWe has said lots of things but went more family oriented TNa, New Japan . ROh and other Indy’s promotion are trying to bring the Old style wrestling back on Tv but WWe keeps hugging and not letting this other promotions be broadcast TNA AAA and CMDL from Mexico have been giving WWE compition Not that i Giving Mexicans like myself Glory but if you will see there product you see the Diffrents Go to AAAwrestling.com and u will enjoy great matches Give it a try Mat.

      • Matthew DeAngelo

        I’m a fan of AAA as well as RoH and New Japan. I do think one word you said is funny, Mexicans. You say it I guess it’s fine, I say it I’m labeled a racist. Plus my name is Matt, I’m not a door mat

        • Rene Ramirez

          Sorry Matt im a bad speller as you can see na don’t think you r racist and I agree current angle with the Matorodes sucks Would like to see EL mesias and Abyss join Kane with father Mitchel what do you think

          • Matthew DeAngelo

            The New Church gimmick was cool and yes I think they need to bring it back

          • Zuckerton

            Yeah…then people will bitch about them “rehashing old storylines” again.

            I see people saying “They need to bring this back and that back” then when they do they say “They’re just reusing the old same garbage they did back then”

            I hate those people.

    • The huntress in the night

      Having taken bumps and chair shots.. it’s easy to get hurt no matter how good your opponent is or how well you are trained. That shot into the steps did a lot of that damage, and Miz got to throwing a few potatoes in there too. The ref asking him if he was done, was legit. But Miz kept up the show. Goo worker that Miz.

      • Matthew DeAngelo

        Props are due to Miz (I think he mainly did it for his parents, my opinion). Taker does the same by continuing when hurt, but you see that outcome.

        • Zuckerton

          Yeah…even though Miz actually isn’t injured AT ALL. He’s taking time off to film “Christmas Bounty”.

          Orton also didn’t even hit the chair, he hit Miz’s Shoulder, but Miz acted like he hit the chair.

      • Rene Ramirez

        sure right Miz should be in the main event more know and a fuid with Orton but we need the old miz also

    • raul cruz

      Pre-determined outcomes and planned out matches? Yes.
      Fake? Hollywood fight scenes are fake because the point is not to hit the other guy, just make it look like you hit him. In wrestling, you have to hit and get hit, and there is no faking it. They do try to pull their punches [especially when the boss tells them to protect the big star in the ring] but when it comes right down to it the blows have to land, falling on your back, even in a well practiced fall still hurts, and the pain is very real.

  • Pam Church

    look like he got the bruised ribs on night of champions if you watch he is grabbing his ribs
