Wrestling fans may be widely tuned into the fact that kayfabe exists now, but few fans in the 70’s and 80’s had no idea that the action in the ring was scripted. Even though pro wrestling is considered a dangerous profession today, it was even more dangerous in the period when the fans thought what they were watching was completely real. Emotions at these shows could run high and the wrestlers often faced the very real possibility of getting attacked by members of the crowd.
