In the past, it was common practice for wrestlers to adhere to kayfabe in public, even when outside the ring and off-camera, in order to preserve the illusion that the competition in pro wrestling was not staged. This was due in no small part to feuds between wrestlers sometimes lasting for years, and which could be utterly destroyed in seconds if they were shown associating as friends in public, and thus potentially affect ticket revenue.
.
During one particular show in Chicago in 1975, one crazed fan took the action in the ring too seriously and took matters into his own hands to help out the ‘good guys’. Not much has been documented about this story as it took place before the days of the Internet and social media, though it was mentioned in passing in Bobby Heenan’s documentary.
.
BOBBY HEENAN: “It was a simple finish. Nick (Bockwinkel) slammed Verne and the ref counted, ‘One! Two!’ and Verne put his foot over the rope. I took his foot and threw it off the rope and the ref counted three. Verne jumps up and tells the ref his foot was on the rope and the ref says to continue the match. Meanwhile, I’m on the apron hugging Nick. Verne dropkicks Nick in the back, Nick knocks me off the apron, falls to the mat, and Verne pins him. As I got up off the floor, a fan in the crowd says ‘Don’t worry, I’ll get him down.’ And he took a gun out, lifted his hand on the kid’s shoulder who was sitting in front of him and fired down to the ring.”
.
VERNE GAGNE: “The next thing I hear is a noise going Pow! Pow!”

RICKY STEAMBOAT on Kayfabe: “I’ve been in situations where we’d walk into a restaurant and there were heels sitting down in the restaurant…and even though we knew that we would be sitting at another table, if I had an angle going on with one of those heels, we’d turn around and walk out and go find someplace else to eat.
.
Nowadays they all sit together.
.
Sometimes you’d pull into a gas station and they’d be filling up with gas on the way home and you’d just pull through, you wouldn’t even stop – just roll through and go on to the next gas station – or go across the street or the one on the other corner.
.
If you did walk in and sit down in the same restaurant, even though you were at another table, the family run business, the promoter would find out about it and you’d be called into the office. They’d say, ‘Look we just did this big thing with you and Flair, and Flair was sitting down having dinner…’ and you know they would have the spies out there of course, and the promoter would probably find out about it even before you made it home that night.
.
You’d be called in and told, ‘Look, you got on TV and cut an interview saying that the next time you saw him you were going to take his head off and then you calmly sit down and eat in the same establishment!’
.
Crockett would look at me and say, ‘Kid, do you get the point I’m trying to make here?’
.
'Oh yeah, yessir, yessir…’”

“Is wrestling fake?”
.
If professional wrestlers or wrestling fans had a dime for every time they were asked this question, they would have a bank full of dimes!
.
It is an honest (and often infuriating) question, often coming from those naive to the business of professional wrestling. As Owen Hart would say to the people asking this, “Yes, every bit of it is fake!”
.
Which leads us to this next one…
.
“You know wrestling is fake, right?”
.
In the words of comedian, Ron Frutches, “Well, no shit it’s fake! What type of psychopath would I have to be if I wanted it to be real?”
.
To lift the veil on the world of professional wrestling, we need to take a look at the term ‘kayfabe‘. Kayfabe is a wrestling word coming from the early carnival days of wrestling for the word “keep”, originally used as “keep quiet”, or “keep secret”. Kayfabe is often seen as the suspension of disbelief that is used to create the non-wrestling aspects of the business, such as feuds, angles and wrestling gimmicks (or in layman terms, a wrestler’s on-screen persona from their personality down to their attire). In relative terms, a wrestler breaking kayfabe during a show would be likened to an actor breaking character on camera.
.
In the past, it was common for wrestlers to adhere to maintaining kayfabe in public, even when outside the ring and off-camera, in order to preserve the illusion that the competition in pro wrestling was not staged. This was due in no small part to feuds between wrestlers sometimes lasting for years, and which could be utterly destroyed in seconds if they were shown associating as friends in public, and thus potentially affect ticket revenue.
