Fixed. It's not where I studied as much as what I studied!

Yeah, but all of those people who played the Power Rangers are accomplished martial artists. Of course, wrestling is there too, it's silly that people still bash Brock even though he has already proven he was a top 10 guy even with little mma experience.

Agreed...the point I was trying to make is they are all still actors in one form or another, some are accepted but pro wrestling is not.

I think Pro-Wrestling is a lot more accepted by MMA fans than we always see on the surface (i.e. internet message boards).

A lot of the hardcore fans just hate to admit that they used to watch wrestling, or even that they still do because it's considered "fake" and not as "cool" as being a UFC fan in a skintight Tapout shirt. In reality, pro-wrestling and MMA have always had their hands in the same proverbial bag, so to speak. Without Vince McMahon and the WWE, the landscape of MMA today may be completely different. The entire business model of the Zuffa-era UFC is a lot like that of the WWE, and even the term "pay per view" wouldn't be viewed in the same light it is today if it weren't for the success of the WWE in the 80's and 90's.

MMA has always had a ton of pomp and circumstance from the very beginning. There is manufactured hype from both the fighters and the promoters. They stick celebrities in the crowd and show them on camera and put them in the broadcast booth. They have big light shows and entrance music. The UFC even used a "reality" show as a Trojan-Horse to bring in new fans (if I am not mistaken TUF used to actually lead into TNA Wrestling on Spike).
