always thought the show wrestling was a peculiar concept.
It's like these guys showing off their best stunt moves in scripted matches, with a touch of soap opera (good guys/bad guys, intriguing managers etc.). All of it something only kids might believe as real.
you can admire the stunts and tricks as you admire a circus act (their acting skills not so much LOL). and what they do is dangerous and can be painful, even if it's fake. so I guess that's the appeal.
and of course guys like John Cena, who are über HOT
so if I watch it, it's just for the hot guys.
