Just how scripted is a pro-wrestling match? As scripted as these leaked scripts

If you’ve had any doubt about pro-wrestling being scripted, these leaked scripts should settle everything. These leaked documents come from a WWE match and detail almost everything you see on TV, except – surprisingly – the choreographed moves of the wrestlers. So if the moves aren’t on the script, what is? Enough to let you know it’s scripted entertainment, not ‘real’ wrestling. Even those poorly-executed backstage rants are scripted (who knew?).

There’s also a checklist where ‘each element on the list must be mentioned and reinforced on the broadcast that night’. Wow, there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work to put together a wrestling match these days.
