Who said wrestling was fake and they were just actors?

Are we sure they weren't just faking the fight?

The wrestler will just apologize and get away.

Pro Wrestling is "fake" (the wrestlers are performers and the outcomes are predetermined) but most of them these days are serious athletes with real training. I wouldn't want to pick a fight with one in a parking lot.

That said, I can hardly find anything online for this Kenji Abe fellow. He must be extremely small-time indies only.

Not the best way to settle a dispute.

He wrestles under the name Macho Abe Ken.

He pinned the victim to the pavement by using his armpit to hold his head.

That's probably his signature move. The "Abe Armpito".
