You wouldn’t think that the simple act of running against the ropes would hurt, but it does. I think another one is just the fact of how winded the wrestlers can get entertaining the people. I think they deserve more respect for that because when two guys are digging, take an Eddie Guerrero type, and he’s out there really trying to show you something special, really trying to entertain the people, and it’s not as easy as it looks to be out there. Put yourself in these guys’ shoes, traveling to your town and giving their whole heart just to put a smile on your face, just to entertain the fans. Being a wrestler is like walking on the treadmill of life. You get off of it and it just keeps going.
