WWE – A brutal sports game or a “bloody” play?

WWE has always been a highly entertaining and violent program. Many years ago, WWE was even subject to age restrictions and was banned in some countries because of gore. So does WWE really fight?

Is WWE good acting?

First of all, the writer insists, WWE is pro wrestling and pro wrestling means FORUM. However, WWE is a classy act that deceives the childhood of many people.

Wrestlers are actors in the ring, but they are also real “riskers”. Their “acting” work requires chemistry and of course risk.

If it’s an act, then the wrestler’s blood is fake?

Interestingly enough, the wrestlers‘ blood is their own. Wrestlers often use specially made razor blades to make a small cut on the forehead to create blood. Due to the high incision and high intensity of movement, blood kept flowing down the wrestlers’ faces. This is also a proof that being a professional wrestler is not easy.

The referees who seem to be “making scenes” in WWE are the “supporting actors” that provide strong support for the “acting” scenes of wrestlers. From supporting participation to “acting”, the referees are even those who secretly give “props” to wrestlers.

Explain for the “face blood” phases in WWE

As the most hated, cowardly person on WWE, The Miz is actually a very kind person.

Why was Brock Lesnar “boycotted” by the whole WWE fan community?

John Cena, a true “good boy” in the eyes of many people, has been the star of WWE for many years, in fact there was a time when he was suspected of using his influence to manipulate WWE. The star interfered with WWE’s plan and helped former girlfriend Nikki Bella’s ex-girlfriend keep the Divas title for longer than expected.

Not only that, the WWE fan community and insiders have also “anonymously” accused John Cena of refusing to sacrifice to make way for the “juniors” to be brought up. It is these scandals and rumors that have caused John Cena to be “boycotted” by a few longtime WWE fans.

John Cena recently “sacrificed” for juniors.

However, recently, after letting Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns win completely in a match, there was no cheating, no outside assistance. Obviously John Cena has officially become a “righteous” in the right way when he is willing to sacrifice to make way to promote “juniors”.
