    A truly scary moment? Have you ever heard the word kayfabe?

    • biggman621 Says:

      Yes, but I have seen enough wrestling accidents in person to get a little nervous about stuff like that. Also, I think I was more worried about Cena since he went into what basically was a fireworks display. With the fire at the end, I has every right to be scared for them.

      I understand that it was possibly kayfabe, but like I said, i have seen enough go wrong that I get a little worried.
