Wrestling | July 15, 2011

My mom was talking to me about how she used to watch her favorite TV shows as a kid..The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family being some of her favorites…

She then went on to say that when she found out The Partridge Family wasn’t real (as in they all couldn’t really sing & play instruments and weren’t in a “real” band etc) she was crushed & heartbroken for a long time.

I said *being dead serious* that I had that same feeling when when I found out that wrestling wasn’t real. She sort of just looked at me…….she didn’t really even laugh. This is my life. haha

  1. What do you mean wrestling isn’t real?! There’s blood!!!!

    Any way, I loved the Brady Bunch. I also used to love watching reruns of Gilligans Island and I Love Lucy. I think I was born in the wrong era?

  3. When I was younger, I was horrified to learn that wrestling was fake – I wasn’t sure until the incident with the most hated of rivalries – Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Iron Sheik. tho

    May 26, 1987: The Iron Sheik and Jim Duggan were arrested by New Jersey State Police..
    ~~~Duggan was charged with possession of marijuana and drinking alcohol while driving..
    ~~~Sheik was charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine..
    ~~~Duggan received a conditional discharge and Sheik received one year probation..
    ~~~What was so shocking about this was that they were feuding at the time, and the incident exposed the business..

    • That’s pretty fishy if you ask me. The big fight for me was Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels. Pat & I talked about it for a long time & had the magazines before then. I blame it on Dad.
