That everybody has to settle their issues in the ring (I still enjoy cool story lines and good work)

why the wrestlers get lead feet on the final step of the ladder or the final hurdle to get out of the cage.

I know its all pre determined, but I like to get lost in the action and pretend its sort of real. When you see stuff like that, its a turn off.... I compare it to a bad actor in a movie... it just ruins the experience in a way

Why wrestlers have a hard time unhooking a stupid belt on the ladder.

Sometimes it's pretty bad, but they usually mask it quite well. The alternative is for somebody to only climb the ladder if he's able to race up at breakneck speed. So, I'll take the "oh man I've climbed 6 rungs on a ladder, damn I'm tired" approach

I think its easier to mask it in a ladder match, and I still enjoy ladder matches overall. However, I've grown to hate cage matches.

I have seen guys who race up the first few rungs, then all of a sudden, an instantaneous and mysterious sickness does not allow their legs to move.

Also, why don't people exit through the door in the cage match so they don't have to climb, if climbing takes so much out of them? I know its less dramatic, but cage psychology is just goofy

wrestlers that attempt a pin early in a match after an insubstantial move (i.e. body slam or clothesline)

when a heel is feuding with a babyface, and the heel turns babyface or babyface turns heel, they are suddenly friends

That's to force their opponent to expend "energy" kicking out...

How Edge was just allowed to put himself in the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out (2009) by simply attacking Kofi Kingston before the match and locking himself in one of the pods

I remember when the original roster split happened in 2002, and the APA got split up. On their last show together on Raw, their "office" backstage was trashed. Then the next week there was a backstage segment and the office was still trashed as if we were to believe that Raw was the same venue as the week before.

I've never understood why in a title match where the champ's odds in winning aren't very good he/she doesn't just hit someone with a weapon or punch the ref... he/she loses the match, but keeps the belt. Problem solved.

Another thing... Wrestlemania 3, Hogan vs Andre..... why is it that at the beginning of the match when Hogan had all his energy, he couldn't lift Andre.... yet after the match had progressed; Hogan being bear-hugged, slammed onto the floor outside the ring, etc.. he was magically able to do it?

Where is the logic in that?

In cage matches, why do people seem to think it's smart to jump off the top instead of climb out? Wouldn't it make more sense to walk out the door, win the match, and go back in and attack them?

Why is it that when someone makes a "surprise return", they have their music/pyro ready?

Why do champions have non-title matches? So many times I've tuned in part way to see -insert champion- taking on -random person-, only to see the champ lose and me think that we have a new title-holder..

If you're the champion, every match should be for your belt.. prove that your worthy of holding it.
