Wanting to know if there is anyone on CR who likes pro wrestling...I frequent /wooo/, the wrestling imageboard, and I see a lot of anime fans so I want to know if the feeling is mutual. Personally I'm a smark, I like indy wrestling and Japanese puroresu (my weeb side coming out again).

It's all completely staged, which makes it more boring that watching paint dry for me tbh...

Although it is quite interesting all the intricate little things they do, it's almost inconspicuous unless you look really closely.

I don't understand how the "oh it's all staged" makes it boring...Game of Thrones is staged but that didn't make the Mountain vs the Viper any less of a riveting watch.

I watch Monday Night Raw and NXT, but not much else. I take it fairly seriously though - to smark levels at times. I'm glad Wrestlemania ended the way it did, otherwise I'd have stopped watching...

No, its not interesting knowing its all staged, and most of it is just build-up for the Pay Per Views. The commentators make it sound even stupider.

Really "stupider". How I weep for the younger generation

I watch TNA and ICW (Scottish wrestling) a lot. I've loved pro wrestling since I was roughly 3 years old. It's kind of crap nowadays compared to how it used to be though. I miss the flaming tables and blood.

As a kid, I loved watching the WWF (well before it became the WWE)
In my late 20s I watched it again for a bit. When I told my co-workers, they said "I thought you were smarter than that". My reply (which I believed) "It's the best COMEDY on TV" They saw my point on it. Pro wrestling became so absurd I found it comical (plus fan service Divas!)

Now I never watch it.

If I am in the mood for wrestling, I will just rewatch

Wanna Be the Strongest in the World (As it is more believable than the WWE, yes I know low bar)

I use to watch it 3 or 4 times a week but I watch it every now and then.
Posted 4/10/15
Nope. I never really got into it. All my friends liked it though.

I was huge into it back when I was a kid. Now I only watch with when my friend invites me over to watch it every other week.

It's all talk! I use to be into WWE but then it's just talk talk talk.... I Know it's staged but the fights were entertaining. if I do watch I just fast forward through the talking.

I don't get why you wouldn't choose something like UFC.

Guilty pleasure aside but I figure that has to be the majority. At least I hope so...

Been watching since like 2002 back when the indies were starting to be a big deal.

Got inspired to try it, backyarded, hurt myself a few years in, "retired" and occasionally go back into it whenever I have the time and money to do so :)

I don't just watch WWE, though.

Since 2002, I've watched like: Ring of Honor, Lucha Underground, CMLL, AAA, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Dragon Gate, TORYUMON, Lucha Libre USA, Dragon Gate USA, Jersey All Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Unplugged, Combat Zone Wrestling, CHIKARA and Total Nonstop Action.

Mostly through internet, though and I've since fell off the indy scene after a while but it's still pretty good stuff.

NXT is good but I can't watch it because $10 is surprisingly expensive considering my expenses lol
