    Do you think Kayfabe is dead?



    Discussed this in my podcast. Do you think Kayfabe is dead? I certainly don't. I think if pro-wrestlers really tried to make everything look real, Kayfabe will continue to thrive regardless of the era. It's happened before during the 1920's and later years when wrestling was revealed to be scripted on the news. Nonetheless, the wrestling business continued to treat it as a real sport. I don't see why the same can't happen today.

    Kayfabe has been dead and buried for years. Why do you think it's next to impossible to get the fans to boo a heel if they're entertained by them?

    It's dead. Comparing the 1920s with no Internet to 2017 with Internet isn't fair.

    Kkeeping kayfabe was easy back then.

    To a larger extent, it's been dead for ages. But every once in a while, you see facebook/Twitter comments that keep it alive.

    Kayfabe is alive and well in smaller promotions with people not many have heard of...but the higher up you go, it dies a death.
    I have a plan so cunning......

    I'd say it's exactly the opposite.

    It is dead. For decades it would be that you keep your mouth shut or you ended up with every bone in your body broken or floating in a river somewhere. Now they expose it on WWE tv and everywhere else.
