Despite all this show-business, Professional Wrestling is very real in the sense that [[RealityIsUnrealistic there's a real danger that's intended to simulate Hollywood fantasy]]. Just because it looks nothing like a real fight and more like a Hollywood fight scene does not mean they are not seriously putting themselves at risk in every match - matches are "fake" only in that they have a predetermined outcome. Professional wrestlers, in this regard, are more like stuntmen: they're acting out a scene, but ''physically'', and with the chance of injury, not to mention they get no second takes. And despite whatever you may have heard, they ''do'' hit each other, although their moves are generally designed to seem much more devastating than they are, and they avoid harm whenever they feasibly can without it looking too obvious. Professional wrestlers literally put their lives in their opponents' hands several times in a single match; the slightest misstep can -- and often does -- result in broken bones, a broken neck, paralysis, possibly even death.
