We all know that professional wrestling is scripted and we don't need millions of non-fans reminding us that the outcomes are predetermined and the matches are mostly worked out in advance.
We get it, okay?
Of course, that doesn't mean everything is planned out ahead of time. While some performers like to meticulously plot their match step-by-step, the majority of them prefer instead to work out the big spots and the finish, and let everything else just sorta fall into place.
Between that lack of structure and the fact that pro wrestlers are human just like the rest of us, things are bound to occasionally go awry in the ring. And sometimes these mistakes end up making the match even better than it would've been if everything had gone according to plan.
