According to Time magazine, the story-line plot, created by Ted Turner, of the World Champion Wrestling crew is that "Hogan leads the New World Order faction against a splinter group, the Wolfpack." (June 29, 1998, p.68.)
Rather, this subtle move to encourage the public’s acceptance of the idea of the New World Order, and our local media’s buying into it and perpetuating that propaganda is utterly frightening.
Now Capital One MasterCard is "issuing new credit cards depicting the faces of some of the World Champion Wrestling’s most popular wrestlers." (Daily Herald, 10/3/98, p.

 Of Mats and Men: Chapter 10 - Evil in Professional Wrestling
The discussion of personifications of evil in professional wrestling would not be complete without discussing a practical problem of understanding evil acts in light of the agents' explanations of their evil deeds.
A third type of possible personified representation of evil in professional wrestling is the situation in which two or more Heels do violence to one Face during a match with the motive to injure or humiliate.

 Clique (professional wrestling) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When Hall and Nash went to WCW, they formed the New World Order stable, or nWo; when Waltman later jumped to WCW, he also joined the nWo.
The Clique (sometimes referred to as the Kliq) was a backstage group in the World Wrestling Federation of the mid-1990s, which some claim held virtually all booking power (the power to make matches and determine storylines), and were accused of refusing to put over (elevate, usually by losing a match) anyone outside the group.
Nash and Hall could not be punished because they were leaving for WCW, Waltman was injured (and did not appear at the Curtain Call) and eventually left for WCW and Michaels was the WWE World Champion.

 Wrestling loses another superstar too soon - PittsburghLIVE.com
Professional wrestling sports its share of demons, one of which is a constant reminder that wrestlers often times gravitate toward muscle-enhancement drugs and pain supplements in order to fulfill the arduous traveling schedule and the constant impact their bodies endure each night.
Professional wrestling, however, shouldn't have to prematurely bury its superstars as a constant reminder of that point.
The rash of wrestlers dying in their late 30s and early 40s perhaps has stressed to a younger generation of superstars that the glitz and glamour associated with sports entertainment can quickly transform into a dark, bottomless pit, unless the correct decisions outweigh the wrong ones.

In the old days there was an unwritten rule that, in order to prevent wrestling from being exposed as a work, wrestlers were never to break kayfabe when they were in the presence of wrestling fans.
Today that rule has largely gone out the window, as wrestlers often break kayfabe when being interviewed on talk shows or on the internet.

 Shoot (professional wrestling) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In professional wrestling, a shoot refers to any event during a show that is unplanned and spontaneous: that is, it is real, not staged.
The Montreal Screwjob is generally acknowledged to be a shoot, in that an agreed-upon plan was secretly changed in order to take the WWF Title off of Bret Hart.
The related term "shoot-fighting" is often used by wrestling fans to refer to mixed martial arts competitions, which, while superficially similar to wrestling matches, are actual athletic competition rather than scripted entertainment.

A third type of possible personified representation of evil in professional wrestling is the situation in which two or more Heels do violence to one Face during a match with the motive to injure or humiliate.
This violence is obviously not used to win a wrestling match, and is closer to an effective representation of purposeless evil, as opposed to the straightforward trickery of using a foreign object in order to win a match.

Not only was Brock quick and agile in the ring for a man his size, but he quickly picked up how to work a WWE main event almost as fast as Angle did.
In order for that to work, Lesnar would have to make sacrifices (payment wise and schedule wise) which he is apperantly not up to doing for wrestling.
Brock was all that and a bag of chips, there's no doubt about it.
