for W3c validation
On Sunday evening, I attended the WWE event at the Key Arena, a “cage” match. In short, I think this was the worst live event I’ve ever been to — and I didn’t even have to pay for the show (a friend got me a ticket). If you want to get an idea for how fake the event looked in real life, take your impression after having watched a professional wrestling event on television and multiply it by 100, or maybe even 1000. I used to watch the occasional wrestling event on television with my dad when I was young and thought the world of Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Sting (among others). Now, after seeing a real event, I know it’s basically just a massive scam to make money from unsuspecting fans. Yes, sporting events like the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL make a boatload of money from fans — but at least with most sporting events, there is real competition rather than the whole event being staged. It was clear to me the entire outcome of the WWE event was rigged.
I’m sure I could write several paragraphs on how crappy an event it was, but in all honesty — I don’t feel like wasting my time.
