Wrestling.  Real, or fake?


This is a question that has been around for a long time.  I'm sure there are enough people who think its real, and enough who think its fake.  However I while looking on youtube.com I found several videos of wrestling being fake and real.  Me, I stand in the middle. 

There are some things you can fake in wrestling i.e., punches, kicks, etc...  On the other hand, how can ya fake a steel chair hit?  Or maybe a power-bomb off the edge of the entrance arena on a table?  Truth is, in my eyes, it is fake, but with real dangers. 

People have died of wrestling injuries.  People have been seriously hurt in matches.  Necks broken, backs broken, arms, fingers, ribs, etc...  If ya go to youtube and look for them, you can find the proof their fake, and proof its real at the same time.

I really would also like to see what others have to say about it.  I have seen videos showing how its done which makes me think its fake, but the injuries some have makes me believe its real.  Let me know what you think.
