    When the Undertaker first started wrestling in WWF I though that he was actually killing people when he used his tombstone finishing move, put them in a body bag, and carried them away. It kinda traumatized me as a kid.

    Considering the number of accidental injuries from that stupid move in pro wrestling and the number of dumbass backyard wrestling idiots that have broken skulls/necks/etc... Pro Wrestling is "real" in that it is freakin difficult to do and if you screw up you can get hurt REALLY bad. The fighting isn't the real part, but it's hard to fake a backflip off of a 12 foot ladder onto a table... I still like watching pro wrestling when they are throwing themselves around like that. Very athletic and impressive. Just nothing whatsoever to do with fighting.

    I used to think that boxing was just a contest to see who could hit harder/take more hits, and that it was just two big, tough lummoxes thrown in the ring. I thought boxing had no technqiue to speak of, or training - just two big guys standing toe-to-toe whaling on each other.

    I also remember seeing a big heavy bag in someone's basement as a child and figuring that I'd be pretty bad-ass if I hit it, since I watched so much ninja turtles and stuff (I really did think I was a pretty awesome fighter because of this) and expected the bag to go flying and buckle when I threw a really, really bad "cross" at it I didn't know **** about boxing at this point) and was shocked and awed when the bag didn't move at all and my wrist buckled and hurt like hell (I probably weighed around 110 pounds). This was actually a pretty useful experience because it made me realize how weak i really was, and the strength that a person would need to work out with such a bag.

    This is basically how I feel, though I don't watch it. Pro Wrestling may be fake, but it's a skilled trade and I have great respect for the "abilities" of the actors.

    God damn, Virus already said most of mine.

    Extra points for this one:

    You can train anything with aliveness will make it work.
    I used to believe that training the “soft” side of martial arts (chi and all that ****) would allow a 60 year “master” to beat down anybody.

    I used to watch “Kung-Fu” and think all that **** was real.

    I used to watch Ninja movies, and even though it was over the top, deep down I believed that somewhere there was someone who could really do that stuff.

    I used to believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.

    If I trained –ing –un with aliveness it would not only work, but it would be super effective because people weren’t used to its tactics and techniques. I just had to find the rEa1

    I used to think that the Bujinkan was a Japanese martial art, instead of a old guy cosplay convention.

    I also used to think that modern arts had all of the utility removed and the more ancient the lineage, the more effective the art.

    Also, that ancient Japanese warriors were vastly superior to ancient Roman or Greek soldiers.

    I look back and think of all the time I wasted being a mild Japanophile when I could have been wrestling instead.

    Just a year back there were kids arguing about how real it was at my school. The majority seemed to realize it was fake, but there were people who legitimately thought wrestlers stomped on the ground at the same time they punched not to mask the fact that they weren't connecting, but to "generate more power."

    Now they argue about "ultimate fighting" and such.

    I think this sums it up for most of us.
