Hi Guys


This article is more a plea for help. I got the idea for my next article from watching someone get lambasted on the WWE universe for not knowing what the Montreal Screwjob is/was.


So I would like to write a basics article. I plan on including basic definitions such as; Kayfab, shoot, work, mark, smark etc. But I also think the article would need to include at least 5 incidents that have helped shaped what we see today. For my mind these would likely include; The Screwjob, The MSG incident and The Fingerpoke of Doom.


What I would like is some suggestions of other things to include, I have thought about including deaths in wrestling but I would think that would need to be an article on its own.


I was not watching wrestling prior to The Screwjob, but if there are incidents before (and there most probably are) that novices to pro wrestling should know please include them too. I love having direction in my personal research so even if they don’t get included in the article I would enjoy the reading.
