Many have often criticized the wrestling entertainment organization, WWE, for being a fake and not confirming to the true principles of wrestling, as its chain of events is at large scripted. However, the critics seem to have overlooked one simple fact: that although the events are based loosely on predetermined scripts, their execution is as real as the critics of the WWE. And that involves incredible amounts of risk and requires a great deal of courage. And what better way to bring this fact to the limelight than recollect some of the most monumental moments in WWE history.
Check it out!
The WWE is one of the biggest platforms that serves awesome bouts for entertainment.
For them, here we are with a few moments in WWE history which prove how real WWE really is!
If you thought that there was anything even slightly fake in Undertaker throwing Mankind off a 16-foot cage through a table, something's definitely wrong with you. However, just to prove how real it was, here's what happened due to the fall: dislocated shoulder, dislocated jaw, and a knocked-off tooth!
When Brock Lesnar super-flexed Big Show from the top rope, the ring collapsed, sending the audience into a frenzy. Now that's the kind of entertainment that cannot be faked!
WWE Survivor series in the year 2001 saw The Rock team fighting off The Triple H team in a face off where The Rock stayed brutal enough to kick the a** off Triple H when he uses a steel chair to give Triple H a big blow.
This is literally taking the entertainment level to the edge. And even if someone dubs it as a fire stunt, it's no doubt that it takes tremendous guts to carry one out live on the spot.
Austin's neck had twisted and the man was paralyzed for quite some time, thanks to Owen's dangerous move. Now tell Austin that he was faking it.
Although not a professional wrestler, Shane does take a great amount of risk while performing those dangerous stunts, and the live audience knows, that the risk he takes is very real.
Perhaps the most tragic moment in WWE history, it was a stunt gone wrong. And the accident led to Owen falling off from the ceiling and landing flat on his back, crushing his bones, and killing him on the spot.
It was a gruesome blow and judging by the way Cena's nose had taken the blow, one would expect him to quit the match. Instead, he continued and even improvised the fight.
His back literally got pierced with thumb tacks, and people still think the WWE is fake! That's just unfortunate...
