A video that made the rounds over the weekend aims to "expose" the WWE — and pro wrestling writ large — as the fake thing most of us know it is by splicing together a few moments from matches showing the wrestlers announcing moves in advance and generally confirming the script with their colleagues.

But instead of ruining the "sport" for fans, the supercut seems to have had the exact opposite effect: It has earned the performers new-found respect from detractors who have long derided the spectacle's suspended reality.

Rather than spotlight the "fakeness" of professional wrestling, the video actually brings much needed attention to the reality of the danger inherent in the health-risking moves performed during matches.

Also: "I'm from Winnipeg you idiot!"
