boshealecta Posted April 4, 2012 Share Posted April 4, 2012 Ive always wondered and thought about what we accept and what would we accept in wrestling as its a very strange beast. One minute its promoted as a realistic sport, then as a soap opera and more often than not a mixture of the two. So what is acceptable, obviously in sport everything is realistic, but in a soap opera we have affairs, deaths, sibling rivalry etc. So what do you think is acceptable and what instances which have passed do you feel have stretched that reality too far? I think its acceptable for example to have Kane and the Undertaker as brothers and Edge and Christian and have family storylines like that. However Ive always found it odd when Tough Enough is mentioned on air, or when Hogan used to come on and promote Hogan Knows Best. Both shows say wrestling is fake and although we know it is, I see it as like an actor in a film suddenly acknowledging that he is acting. Just wondered what peoples opinions were as Ive always been intrigued by what wrestling can and can not get away with and things that they wouldnt be able to do (such as a storyline death of a character wouldnt work unlike in soaps) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
