Kayfabe... what is it and when was it broken for you? in The PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING Posted July 22, 2013 THEY EXIST. Adults. REAL people who are REALLY old and REALLY think that wrestling is REALLY REAL. (Or that everything before the finish is real, or that only the title matches are real, or that only certain wrestlers have real matches.) I've met far, far too many of these morons and psychopaths at indy shows. Most of the smarks think that idiots like that are hilarious and try to troll them into fanboy rages, but I always found such people to be incredibly creepy and wanted to avoid them at all costs. I don't doubt that some "it's still real to me damn it" people do exist, but it has to be a very small fraction of the total wrestling fanbase. I've been to lots of shows in several different areas and never found anyone like you described. Most of the casuals or non-net savvy fans I meet at WWE live events watch wrestling the same way we do. They like some heels and some faces, and they just want to see fun matches and storylines.
