You're right pro wrestling is as fake as it gets.

1) NCAA points shaving
2) Horse racing holding back a horse
3) Blood Doping Tour De France
4) Steroids in Track and Field
5) Steroids in Competitive Swimming
6) Major League Baseball Gambling
7) Players Union strikes, walkouts and lockouts
8) Salt Lake City Olympic Comitee
9) Evendar Hollyfield's last fight
