Wrestling is built on a lie. And the truth. And marketing. And BS. And human emotion, drama… It’s a totally unique storytelling medium. Similar to, but not the same as any other art form.
But at the heart of it all, the main foundation is not doing something while pretending the opposite. Pretending that I hate you when you’re a friend, making it seem like I’m hurt when I’m not.
So, for the record, if I tell you to ‘kick me in the face’ in the match, maybe you could, you know, not actually kick me in the face? Thanks.
