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.
No, what happened is they told the hospital staff they found a dead body by the road. Then they ran away. After all, they were late for work. And speaking of late for work, the hospital treated Sandman's corpse by ramming an adrenaline needle into his heart. He popped back to life and called Tommy Dreamer to tell him he was coming to wrestle in his scheduled match. Tommy, of course, told him he was crazy and to get some rest. Only that last part also isn't true. Sandman, minutes after being dead, went in front of a crowd and pretended to almost get beaten to death.
