Wrestling is fake. It doesn't hurt. The real Ultimate Warrior died.
For decades, numerous misconceptions have existed about professional wrestling and WWE. Many fans of pro wrestling haven often come to the defence of these mistruths, especially when spread around by an outsider, or someone who wouldn't consider themselves a "wrestling fan".
They're all gay. You're gay if you watch them because they wrestle topless and in their underwear. The Montreal Screwjob was a work. They all take steroids and use drugs...
...but misconceptions in wrestling aren't always limited to just the performers or those on the inside. Fans too, especially supporters of the biggest and most heavily criticized professional wrestling promotion in the world, WWE, have also experienced being classified in a certain inappropriate and inaccurate way.
While the wrestlers are often the targets of wrestling outsiders, and we're not talking Hall or Nash, the fans are often miscast by personalities within the wrestling industry. From promoters to talents, office personnel and dirtsheet writers, numerous misconceptions exist as it pertains to WWE fans with a number of them coming from within WWE itself.
