Why do non-fans still assume...

...that we watch wrestling because we think it's real?

I still frequently see troll posts on wrestling YouTube vids asking fans if we realize what we watch is fake as if movies are live and completely ad-libbed. Then again, I've never found the "fake?" critics to be logical people.

funny that you should ask this. From today's editorial section of the newspaper where I grew up.

Here's a non-fan, who thought it was still real to her....dammit.

Didn't realize the Onion had "Letters to the Editor" writers on staff.

I don't encounter anyone who is under the impression I think it's real. In fact what I commonly encounter is quite the opposite, people who wonder why I watch it when I know it's not real.

The problem here is you are paying any attention to "troll posts" on YouTube comment sections.
