[[BrokenBaseFans are fighting over this theme constantly]]. Some people think that the old guard only take up space and TV time that could be used for younger wrestlers, while other fans enjoy the nostalgia and think that the oldies still have their place on the show and are not really to blame for younger wrestlers not being used. Fan reactions will also depend on how much talent and effort said wrestler will still put in the ring (i.e. Wrestling/RicFlair still pulls a lot of respect for his ring-work while others are often lambasted for still maintaining main event space despite a now deeply limited ring effort.)

Yes, wrestling is fake. There is no denying that, but it comes with quite a few advantages. For example, [[LongRunners pretty long careers]]. ([[DentedIron in some cases]]). The scripted matches allows wrestlers to still keep going in their 40s, 50s or even longer, making wrestlers living LongRunners. Overlong careers are mostly a result of wrestling being the only income for most wrestlers, either because they don't have anything waiting for them after wrestling or for other reasons, such as the love they have for the profession.
