    He knew in advance, though. I mean, it's all a work, right? Honest question. Since I was about 8 I have assumed it's completely scripted. Nothing wrong with that; so is Shakespeare. But would you say, "Welp, gotta be happy for Helena, she finally got Bertram!"

    Itís more of a ďIím happy to see this guy finally rewarded for all the work heís done.Ē They donít just put the belt on anyone (Well, WCW did but letís not talk about that), itís supposed to be a symbol that youíre the top person in the company.

    The question is, how far in advance do they let him know? I agree, he knew prior to going out there, but is it 3 days prior? That day? Hours before?

    But yes, what JJ said. He's put in so much time, the grind, not often in the spotlight until The New Day became a fan favorite of sorts. Nice to see him get this push and that moment.

    Vince/the booking team have been known to change the scripted outcome of matches the day of, even up to right before the match happens.

    There are some personnel who go out of their way not to be told what's going to happen either, that way their response is more genuine. Paul Heyman (Brock's manager) wasn't told Brock was going to be breaking The Streak until the moment it happened - the infamous shot of him clutching his head screaming "OH MY GOD!" is the result.

    Ya, I've heard the same, maybe even from you previously (I can't remember).

    That's fascinating. If I were an announcer I wouldn't want to know. I'd want to do it straight and be surprised along with the audience. That would make me the voice of the audience.

    Is there a safeword for when someone f-cks up and gets hurt? I assume at this point kayfabe is broken in a medical emergency since otherwise Vince would be sued into oblivion.

    Referee will make an X with his arms over his head. That's the universal sign for "someone's hurt for real, drop the act and get medical attention." Even this can be played off in kayfabe by an alert team though (and some feds actually use the X sign as part of the show, which I vehemently disagree with.)

    In WWE the announcer has Vince talking to them in their ear the entire time, a lot of times feeding them lines to say.

    kayfabe is actually a perfect metaphor for the USG under Dump.

    This, and IIRC, Hulk didn't know he'd beat Andre until right before the match in WIII.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I get that -- it's all one single-entity orchestrated to max out the bottom line, like MLS.
