    Default Kayfabe

    Everyone knows pro wrestling is fake, but I just learned there’s a word the industry uses to describe how all their world’s a stage: kayfabe. Fans apparently don’t care, or they are of an intelligence level I cannot relate to.

    This also explains a lot of politics, such as why certain politicians seem to get away with murder - it’s kayfabe to make the audience boo the heel. (see article below). There was even a wrestler named “Kamala” Harris.

    C'mon man, everyone has heard of Kamala "The Ugandan Giant", he and the Von Erich's had a major feud going for a while in the Dallas wrestling deal. He was something else. He was around during the waning days of glory days regional wrestling before it got nationalized for the most part.

    I enjoy watching the lady wrestlers once in a blue moon, but my attention span is short.
