    That used to be the case, years ago. That was when the wrestlers were required to maintain their facades in every medium, and keep their real lives extremely private. These days, the majority of wrestling fans are perfectly aware that the outcomes are scripted and that it's an entertainment show, not a full-on athletic competition. The stars will break character and do "backstage" interviews, sometimes in the same show or magazine that's describing the main ("in-character") action and events.

      And even in the old days, most still knew it wasn't real, just like when they'd go watch an action movie and yell at the screen.  All fiction requires suspension of disbelief.

      77% of voters support a public option, Congress.
