On Vince Mcmahon's Death
kayfabe refers to the portrayal of events within the industry as real, that is the portrayal of professional wrestling as not staged or worked. Referring to events as kayfabe means that they are worked events, and/or part of a wrestling storyline. In relative terms, a wrestler breaking kayfabe during a show would be likened to an actor breaking character on camera.
Kayfabe is often seen as the suspension of disbelief that is used to create the non-wrestling aspects of promotions, such as feuds, storylines, and gimmicks, in a similar manner with other forms of entertainment such as soap opera or film. In the past, kayfabe was strongly adhered to in order to preserve the illusion that pro wrestling was not staged. With the advent of the Internet Wrestling Community and the sports entertainment movement in pro wrestling, the maintenance of pro wrestling's backstage secrets are more difficult to keep than they were in earlier decades. Today, kayfabe is sometimes broken to advance storylines, to explain prolonged absences due to legitimate injury, as a tribute to a wrestler, or even for comedic effect.
Through kayfabe, wrestlers often quit or get fired, or are said to have been booked to lose a match where their jobs are on the line (e.g., a "loser leaves town match"), only to return at a future time.
However, such "departures" may also be used to advance a feud between two wrestlers. A classic example is the "masked man", where the wrestler (usually a face) who has supposedly lost his job makes appearances at subsequent events while wearing a mask, and then interfering in his heel opponent's matches; eventually, the masked wrestler's identity is exposed by his foe and the feud intensifies. . – source wikipedia
Kayfabe’s of the past
- Dusty Rhodes/Kevin Sullivan feud - 1980s
- Feud between Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan - 2003.
- On the
August 22, 2005edition of RAW, WWE Champion John Cena successfully defended his title by defeating Chris Jericho in a "You're Fired!" match. Though the match had been conceived to cover for 's departure from the company, Jericho was not truly "fired," as his release was a mutual arrangement, and he continues to have a civil relationship with the company. Jericho
- Another recent example is the May 2006 match between Rey Mysterio and John "Bradshaw" Layfield in which JBL said if he didn't win the match for the World Heavyweight Championship he would quit the SmackDown! brand. When he lost the match, he said he quit. However, he returned to SmackDown! as its color commentator, replacing Tazz after he went to the ECW Brand. In actuality, JBL was forced to retire from active competition due to a serious back injury.
What the fans think of all this
The following are some interesting logical thinking expressed by our readers in response to our earlier articles on Vince Mcmahon Death. Via comments and Mail.
Let's do some elementary deductive thinking.
1. Vince lost the "hair match" and thus, his hair.
2. Vince has lost some weight (especially noticeable in his face)
3. Vince hasn't really been very active until just a week or so ago when he lost to Lashley
4. Vince hasn't been talking as much as he normally does
5. Vince suddenly just "disappears"
Conclusion (at least mine):
Vince has cancer or some other catastrophic disease that has required chemotheraphy or some other radical medical treatment that would result in the loss of his hair medically. And the car blew up so that he could get even more radical, maybe even invasive treatment for his catastrophic medical problem. (Just a hunch)
The Federal authorities are only involved as part of the kayfabe to make people think that the WWE is real. He did not really die. Here are 2 facts that show he couldn't have died.:
1. If he had really died on television, the camera wouldn't have still been on him.
2. If he had really died on television, they wouldn't keep on broadcasting the explosion everywhere including WWE.com. The WWE hasn't showed any footage of Owen Hart's death except for a 15 second video taken by a fan.
3. We as WWE fans hate Mr. McMahon but that doesn't mean he's not a rich multi-billionaire. If he had really died, his death would've headlined atleast 5 newspapers which it didn't.
If you're still not convinced, notice how Vince McMahon strolled really slowly to his limo. The camera shouldn't have been on him if he was..

Now whether or not Vince Mcmahon Death was a Kayfebe will hang in uncertainity until its confirmed by some credible authority or till the time Vince reappears in some fashion. Till then we could only guess and really hope that it is just a stunt. if it were really a stunt then i sincerely hope people in the entertainment industry will show some judgement in the future and refrain from performing such stunts just to grab the attention. And as we conclude we need to do some serious thinking on the topic - Are we crossing moral boundaries ???
