This is how I explained it to a friend of mine the other day.

Wrestling was able to disguise itself as a sport because back in the day, people were (mostly) more innocent and WANTED to believe, and wrestling merely used that. With that being said there is so much that is misunderstood about kayfabe and preserving wrestling as 'real.' The whole kayfabe/sport thing did *not* come about because wrestlers everywhere were concerned about preserving their livelihood - kayfabe came about because a group of powerful promoters needed a tool to control their underlings and the boys, so they manufactured this aura of wrestling and 'kayfabe' in order to be that tool. Wrestling in 2019 no longer needs this 'tool' in order to be successful, so it can be appreciated as the artform that it is (and wrestling is absolutely an artform, I will defend this with anyone).

I don't know wtf that has to do with anything Cornette related, but there you go.
