Wrestling fans will vehemently deny this claim saying that it is a sport. My son has been a fan for years and for years I have been telling him what a load of crap it was and how it was all fake. That was until we went to see Smackdown at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre last Saturday Night. I remember perving on this luscious blond sheila who was walking up the stairs right past me not knowing at the time that it was actually one of the wrestling divas Kelly Kelly. Man was she hot and I couldn’t wait until I could see her in action.
Now, although I know that it was probably all choreographed, it was so professionally done that it looked real. Seeing the likes of Batista, Edge, Kane, The Undertaker, Khali and Mark Henry was pretty cool. Matt Hardy didn’t look like much but then he was the US champion so I suppose that counts for something.
The Diva Tag team match which consisted of Victoria and Natalya vs Michelle McCool and Kelly Kelly was pretty entertaining. I must admit I was a little disappointed when no-one lost a top or anything. They must have stuck them on with glue or something. Anyway, they sure knew how to play the crowds and I was glad that Kelly and McCool won after McCool put the ankle lock on Victoria.
It is really amazing how you get totally engrossed in the whole thing and a lot of it probably has to do with the general atmosphere, although I must admit I would have loved to ‘tombstone’ a couple of kids behind me or at least their parents.
I did remember to take my Panasonic Lumix DMC FX50 digital camera with me and after taking a photo with a flash and discovering what a waste that was, I played with the settings until I was happy with the resulting shots and then handed the camera to frank, my son. I noticed throughout the night how many people were using flash and couldn’t help but wonder how their photos would turn out.
Frank took a few videos with the camera as well including these highlights.
Now, for a quick poll on your opinion on wrestling. Personally, after Saturday night’s show, I reckon it is total entertainment.
