Wrestling and Quixtar
The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.
I read a comment by an IBO about Quixtar: "Millions of ppl are doing Quixtar business, millions can't be stupid". Well, being a huge wrestling fan myself (yeah I know its silly, but I like it...), I know millions of ppl watch wrestling. Every body know it's fake, but they watch it. With the same enthusiasm even more which i saw in Quixtar's FED. And speaking of wrestling, I find following similarities between Quixtar and wrestling:
- Its two nights every week.
- Majority knows it's fake.
- Participants always get hurt; owner makes a lot of money.
- Important events (Pay per view / rallies) are ridiculously expensive, and are once a month, every month.
- Majority of participants would never achieve superstar status, no matter how good or technically sound they are, unless they know how to entertain audience.
- Public Speaking skills are way more important than actual thing.
- Women are at most a diva, nothing else.
- Normal public thinks it's silly. Well, it is, despite a lot of money.
- If you challenge the owner, he'll screw you real bad (Bret hart, Bo short)
- Help of your manager / upline can make all the difference
- To win, you must beat the PV / crap out of your downline / opponent
- Participant gives the image that they are fighting for honor or they are like noble warriors, but they are nothing more than overpaid clowns
- Stories are more important than the actual stuff.
In WWE, A good guy / baby face can become a champion while still being a good guy...
(To be fair, a lot of heels in WWE are real nice in real life. Can't say that about Quixtar, ppl who are ripping ppl off)
Flush the stinking system!
