I have been a big wrestling fan since I was a child and I decided to follow some of my favorite female wrestlers on Instagram, I was strolling through Mickie James' insta and saw the highlights from the match. As soon as I saw her opponent, something told me to look deeper into them. And come to find out it is a TIM that she was fighting. He goes by the name Giselle Shaw and it trips me out that he is not fighting the men but the women.

Any thoughts on this?

WWE is choreographed entertainment. It's so self-consciously fake that the word "kayfabe" (roughly, staying in character even though said character is outrageously unserious) originated there.

To be fair, most WWE performers ARE, in fact, skilled wrestlers (as in actual, Greco-Roman style, wrestling—the Olympics kind) who competed and won at high levels.
Those ppl routing into WWE doesn't prove that WWE is real, though. It just proves that you can't realistically make a living (as an athlete) in the actual sport of wrestling.
