Things I'm working on and thinking about

Another great point from an askreddit thread

You have to realize that wrestling is, essentially, a giant unspoken LARP where the wrestlers are “the athletes” and you and the rest of the audience are “the fans.” CHIKARA Pro takes this to the obvious logical end by havingmoments like this (wait for the audience to start chanting), but at the WWE level it’s subtler – you cheer for your fav’rits unironically, and when someone does something dastardly (even if it is one of your fav’rits) you boo because HOW DARE HE.

It’s like going to a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, except it’s different each time.
