A documentary called Fake It So Real profiles a group of amateur wrestlers in the Millenium Wrestling Federation from North Carolina as they prepare for their big show.
If you ask the inevitable question that comes up about this form of wrestling – about whether it’s "real" or "fake" – you’re missing the point. That’s like asking if watching a live play is real or fake, or if watching a reality show is real or fake. They’re all forms of theater that have real people performing, where some parts are scripted, and some are improvised.
Wrestling, however, is certainly sweatier.
