Sylvester Stallone’s response to when people say wrestling is not “real”

In an interview with, veteran actor Sylvester Stallone talked about his love for the wrestling business and he said the following…

“I understand what goes into it. I hear people say it’s not real. Really? Gravity is real. Jumping off the top rope or having 300 pounds landing on you, that’s real. I feel the same way about action films. They’ve been submerged in sort of a dismissive sort of genre. Like, ‘Oh, it’s an action film.’ All I know is I’ve had maybe 31 operations due to action films, so I consider it very real.”

“I love wrestling’s mythic qualities. I made my daughters watch wrestling—I wanted them to watch for the story.”
