Wrestling Now Not Only Fake But A Conspiracy Against Wrestlers
Professional wrestling, as you may have heard, long ago admitted to be staged. And while no one would seriously call the fake-fighting entertainment events “serious,” there may be something seriously sinister going on with wrestling phenom Ryback.
During a recent RAW match, Ryback’s inability to perform his finishing move on his opponent, the beastly Tensai, has set off shockwaves on the web. Those who saw the match have settled on one theory: Ryback was supposed to win, had been told he would win, the match was rehearsed with him winning… and then Tensai went off the reservation…
Ryback was able to defeat the gargantuan Tensai, but twice failed to put the brute over his shoulders. Wrestling commentators and fanatics have speculated that Tensai might have been “sand-bagging,” or purposely making himself harder to lift. A bit of a failed veteran, he may have been jealous of Ryback’s meteoric rise, and so, didn’t lead himself be risen. Others have been more forgiving and don’t think the event was part of another wrestling conspiracy.) They simply believe Ryback was physically unable to lift the man because he weighs over 350 pounds.
The Bleacher Report, among other online resources, have gone further to posit that maybe WWE officials sabotaged the match to test the wrestler. It’s a known fact that the league will hold up-and-comers up to the fire, to test their resilience. To keep Ryback humble, and to make sure he’s made of the right stuff, the federation decided to throw this hurdle in his rise to stardom.
Ryback will go on to face off with WWE Champion CM Punk in what should prove to be a carefully planned, obviously staged high-octane encounter. Of course, now that it seems that even the wrestlers themselves can’t be sure what will happen, you never know…
