    I was too young at the time the show aire to know the answer to this question, but is the competition real here, or is it pre-planned?

    I too was quite young when this show aired (I am 20 now) and I barely remember being able to distinguish this show as being fake. Either way it was still quite entertaining.

    fake, but more real looking then any pro-wrestling (which was why i hated when people would point out how fake WMAC looked. )

    Yes it was fake but the fighters were all real fighters. The Machine and Red Dragon were both in the Mortal Kombat movie too.

    Fake, unfortunately. I, too, was young and couldn't tell at the time, but toward the end of the run, I realized it probably was (about the time they had that "Secrets of Pro Wrestling Revealed" special, or whatever it was called).

    I didn't realize Chris Casamassa was in MK until later on...and I would assume the guy that played the Machine was also Jax? MK is pretty cool, both as movies and video games.

    I forgot to add this the first time around...

    The narrators mentioned in one episode that the "ninjas" (or whatever they were called) that fought each warrior before the final event were actually "warriors in training". Who in their right minds would ever allow themselves to be beaten up time and time again until the "World Martial Arts Council" finally decided that they were allowed to pick a character and start fighting as a warrior?

    That was the other giveaway (that it was fake), in my opinion.
