Wrestling and Quixtar

The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.
Marcus Aurelius

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.
Anyways, I feel little bad about associating WWE with such an un-ethical organization. After all, their business is ethical and legal, they do give me good entertainment every time. And no body, well, except my 12 year old brother pushes me to watch it. But Quixtar can't top this one:

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!

LOL. Excellent post. I had never thought of such comparison but it makes a lot of sense.
