This Is What A Professional Wrestling Script From The WWE Looks Like

SPOILERS: Professional wrestling is scripted.

Posted on

In case you didn't know, professional wrestling is scripted and WWE scripts have found their way online in recent weeks.


The page above shows how a match is split up into "segments." It is for a match between Rob Van Dam (RVD) and Alberto Del Rio and shows how the match was scheduled to play out.

Notice halfway down the page where it says "Finish — RVD Over." This is code for "RVD is scheduled to win."

It follows up with "Music," which means the winning wrestler's music will play throughout the arena.

Next, is "Reactions," which means the camera will cut straight to crowd reactions after the three-count and music hits.

Watch the last few seconds of the match, played out exactly like the script calls for.
