Tatanka and Navajo Warrior vs. Golden Boy

Tatanka answers the call at Sky CityOne bad apple can spoil the whole bunch. And that bad apple will make another appearance at Sky Rumble IV at the Sky City Casino VIP Showroom on Saturday.

Tatanka, superstar of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), said all it took was a phone call from the Navajo Warrior to get him to come out to Acoma to take care of a lone troublemaker.

“My good friend, the Navajo Warrior, called me and asked me if I could come out and join him to get rid of the Golden Boy Jerry Grey who is causing all the problems in World Pro Wrestling,” Tatanka said.
Comment:  Tatanka isn't too stereotypical, is he?

Wow, a big, half-naked chief with warpaint. How stunningly original. By my count, Tatanka is roughly the 100,00th person to use a Plains chief to sell a product (himself).

Has anyone ever noted that pro wrestling is stupid? If not, let me be the first.

dude the comments you made about tatanka are very jerkish. He is a talented performer. also your comment that pro wrestling is fake. I'm a pro wrestler in the independent circuit. I've wrestled for two years and i have already broke one arm, 3 fingers, my nose, six ribs and a wrist. All in the ring. you get in there take a few bumps and say it doesn't hurt

I didn't say anything about Tatanka's so-called talents. I implied his self-portrayal as a big, half-naked chief with warpaint is stereotypical.

Do you have anything to say about this point? Feel free to address it rather than attacking me unnecessarily.

Whether pro wrestling is fake and whether it can lead to real injuries are two separate matters. Read the following for more on the subject:


The skills of the wrestlers do not determine the outcome of the match. Instead, writers work on plots and storylines well in advance, and every match is another chapter in the story. Who wins and who loses is all in the script.

Does that mean that wrestling is fake? It's true that the plots are predetermined and the moves are choreographed. Wrestlers aren't really trying to beat up and injure each other. Sometimes, the bitterest enemies in the ring are really best friends, and the outlandish stories surrounding the characters are usually not true. However, simply calling wrestling "fake" is like calling an action movie fake. When you see a movie, you know that the actor didn't really jump a burning car over an exploding bridge, but you're still entertained. Stunt people and special effects crews worked to make those scenes seem real, and their work can be very impressive.

Pro wrestling is like that.
