    How does Wrestling work?

    Always loved wrestling but recenlty have been fascinated with the behind the scenes stuff more. I understand and respect it from a buisness standpoint a lot more now. One thing I can't figure out is how these guys have these unbelievable matches live for 30 plus minutes sometimes with multiple wrestlers being involved. I know they discuss the match prior and one guy "calls" the match but even that seems crazy to me with the dangers involved. Just curious, figured maybe one of you guys could shed some light on it for me.

    well you have to know each others moves set and some time when the chemistry gets real good, they dont even discuss it they just do it on spot.

    The more you work with someone, the more you know them. There's a reason why some of the best all time matches involve guys like Flair/Steamboat - these guys wrestled every single day for a year +. After a while, you perfect it.

    Lol you do know that everything is scripted right? Theres website telling you what will happen for monday night raw and friday night smackdown. Everything is scripted and it tells you who will be the winner and who will win or lose. As well as what will happen during that show and so on.

    Most the time you can see them whispering in each others ears, calling the match as they go.

    A wrestling school tryout? They will make you puke and try to get you to quit. Run for the equivalent of about an hour straight on a surface you've never encountered. Then have you practice how to take a fall with your chin tucked and palms landing flat, which you will get right about 1 in 50 times. Good luck.

    He knows wrestling is scripted, i think hes talking more about the inner workings of a match, like how they know what to do next and stuff like that, cause obviously not everything is completely choreographed in advance like Hogan vs Warrior.

    These guys usually know each others moves, keep in mind that while you may be seeing a match on tv for the 1st time it doesnt mean its the 1st time theyve wrestled cause theres all the house shows. Thats important. Wrestlers can basically rehearse their spots there untelevised...like its a practice match.

    Im sure you probably already know how the wrestlers talk during the match and call the next set of moves, like when you see a rest hold like a headlock or an armbar or whatever its just cover for them having a chat. The refs also play a role as they wear ear pieces and get told things from backstage, like when to end the match or if they need to keep going.
