The stunts performed during WWE matches are often considered fake due to the fact that the stunts are expertly choreographed. This does not mean that wrestlers do not experience injuries in the ring. It simply means that WWE wrestling is designed for entertainment purposes, and the stunts and choreography moves are practiced repeatedly in order to increase safety and minimize injury.
