Have you ever wrestled before? I doubt it. Wrestling is scripted, not fake. If it were fake that would be implying that you could legit fly or something gay like that, and I'm pretty sure if wreslters could fly they wouldn't be wreslting, that's for sure.
It's also pretty weak to rag on pro-wrestling for it being fake cause that'd be like going to a movie and being all like "Aw that's pretty weak that it was fake." Come on, it's just like watching theatre.
But yeah, if you're limited to just watching WWE, I understand, it used to be run very well but now they're running it very shitty, and their "Top" stars suck at wrestling and can't act worth shit. TNA is becoming much better, especially with guys like Rhyno, Christian and Jeff Hardy joining their roster.
It was indeed sad that Eddie died. Granted alot of marks didn't like him because his charactor was duchebagish, but in terms of his wrestling, his technique and psychology he was simply amazing and one of the greatest. Also to clarify, Eddie was sober for several years.
