Trivia

The show is taped Tuesday nights and broadcast Friday nights. Their 11 September 2001 event was canceled due to the terrorist attacks. On 13 September 2001, Smackdown was broadcast live as the first major and televised event since the attacks as thousands were in attendance. The ring ropes are usually blue for the Smackdown shows but were red, white and blue for this night; these colors were commonly used during the 1980s. See more »

Wrestling may be fake...
5 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I haven't watch wrestling for years. I've grown out of it, but even today when I hear others say, "Why do you watch wrestling? It's fake!" to others, it still urks me. Being fake is no reason not to watch it. YES IT IS FAKE! But so are sitcoms, soup operas, and just about every other TV (with the exception of those "reality tv" shows, but even some of them are actually fake). Only watch it to enjoy it. Don't let the fact that its fake sway the way you feel about it. It's like not listening to a certain singer because they are gay and letting that be the determining factor, even though they make good music. So who cares if its fake? If a kid wants to believe its real, then just let them. Why spoil the fun for someone?
