    I notice some of your "favorite wrestlers" are actually factions. I think we should list that separately.

    1. Owen Hart
    2. HHH
    3. Diamond Dallas Page
    4. Chris Jericho (wCw version...Lionheart, not y2j)
    5. Jeff Jarrett (the only thing that made the post-nWo WCW worth watching)
    6. Hulk Hogan
    7. The Rock (I don't care how overhyped he became, he's still a magic on the mic.)
    8. Ric Flair
    9. Jake The Snake
    10. Roddy Piper
    11. Shawn Michaels
    12. Mr Perfect
    13. Macho Man Randy Savage
    14. Sting
    15. Brett Hart
    16. Lex Lugar
    17. Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase
    18. Kanyon
    19. Vincent K. McMahon
    20. Mic Foley

    HM to Randy Orton, who is an excellent heel and one of the very few performers who make the show somewhat watchable today.

    Note: Chris Benoit would be high on this list if he didn't turn into a child/wife murdering *******.

    Why can't a wrestling conversation ever exist on the internet without someone coming in and feeling the need to state the obvious (That it's staged) and another person entering the conversation informing everyone how much he hates wrestling?

    You never see a football conversation interrupted by "Oh man, I hate the NFL!" or a conversation on How I Met Your Mother interrupted with "Don't you know it's fake?"

    On a side note, you don't like The Price is Right? (Or am I misreading your subtext here?)

    I also forgot to mention... best marketers ever!
    When those guys develop their character, they live it to their grave.
    I have a fascination of the business and what goes on behind the scenes.

    Those people take it more serious than those who actually watch it.

    Because Wrestling is fake. And they only do it because some people will throw away big $$$$$ just to watch it.

    we used to watch it at lunch time at work everyday. Then again it was the only channel we could get without a cable hookup.

    Absolutely!

    Hate to go slightly off topic, but the WWE is about to go toe to toe against the NBA:

    Magic is also fake. So are tractor pulls.

    So are the Simpsons, I still watch that.

    The Big Bang Theory is fake, I still like that.

    The Dark Knight is fake, it was still awesome.

    Star Trek is fake, I still loved that.

    Do you go into conversations about movies and tell everyone the characters aren't real? Why do that with wrestling when none of the viewers think it's real?

    The days of the WWE/F trying to perpetrate itself as a real sport and some idiot fans and naive kids actually buying into it ended in the late 80s/early 90s.

    The same holds true for everything in this country.

    Do you think the NFL would continue to operate if people didn't throw away big $$$$$ to watch it?
