    Default 5 Moments in Fake Professional Wrestling That Got Too Real

    There's some amazing stuff here:

    http://www.cracked.com/article_20006...r4=recommended

    The first one is a good opener, I had no idea about that one with Ali, unfortunately the ECW video was taken down from youtube, and we wind up with a really brutal Japanese guy from the '50s and Hulk Hogan being REALLY rough on a weaselly guy who ended up on SVU.

    Wait, they go with the ECW chair throwing incident over the "Mass Transit Incident" and Hulkster over Dr. David Schultz and John Stossel?

    This list sucks!

    Maybe to an expert such as yourself, but to a novice it's fascinating!

    Do you have video of the ones you're referring to?

    You don't want to see Mass Transit. Trust me.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Tr...l_wrestling%29

    For Stossel and Schultz move to around 5:30



    And for the record, here's that ECW video that was missing from the original link:

    Wow. I viewed the first one as (relatively) light-hearted until he talked about having permanent ear damage.

    The chair thing is yet another stupid mob.

    As for the Mass Transit thing, that sounds bad, but how much of it was a real beating? Am I reading right that the pro wrestler cut the kid's head open?

    Yes, because the kid had never been "bladed" before, he bled like a stuck pig. The thing with New Jack is the dude is pretty legit crazy (stabbed a dude in the ring once), really can't be sure with him where it's no longer part of the show.

    A few suggestions I'd throw out there:

    *Cactus Jack/Terry Funk flaming chair thrown into the crowd. (couldn't find a video)

    *Butterbean destroying Bart Gunn:

    *Floyd Mayweather breaks Big Show's nose (fight scripted, Mayweather takes liberties with Show):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iklj9uTxfJI

    *Dr. David Schultz responds to a question regarding wrestling being fake:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=Tbl92RqHVmk

    *And just a funny one, Chris Jericho responds to a fan's taunt:


    Request: Can anyone here find a video of Shawn Michaels superkicking Bret Hart out of his wheelchair? I remember that one being a legit knockout.
