There's always the morbid curiousity of seeing just how bad the beat-up doll gets beaten up.

And besides, when I go see "Hamlet", don't I already know how it ends? Yet I go anyway. Why is that?

I was kind of curious about that sort of thing myself, back when Titanic was in theaters. I had friends who literally watched that movie 15 times before it even came out on video.

I was like, "You know something brother? I hate to spoil the surprise, but the damn boat sinks!"

But anyway, if I can be serious for a minute. Movies and wrestling are hardly the same thing, you know what I mean? I mean, I watched O having a fairly good idea how it was going to turn out-- hell, even pretty much knowing the entire bloody plot ahead of time. Did that stop me from enjoying it? No...

But one shouldn't be able to call the outcome of a wrestling match with 100% certainty before the match even starts. For example, one of the great things about the Benoit-Jericho rivalry was that either man could beat the other at any given time. I don't know if this is true or not, but I got the perception that their feud was almost entirely 50/50. Squashing everybody in one's path doesn't make for good drama, you know? And it hurts the careers of the guys he's squashing.
