I'm working on a story in which the main character is a professional wrestler. Surely, most people realize that this form of entertainment is scripted and coordinated, rather than competitive. However, I'm having a bit of time figuring out how to introduce it to the reader that knows very little about it. Right now, I have it written down in an implicating sort of way. Such as having dialogue being spoken between the wrestlers during the match and describing that they are doing so in ways which are discrete. Secretly, they coordinate the match. The whole idea behind pro wrestling is for the audience to believe it is real, but my reader has to know that the two forces aren't actually battling. Do I continue on in this implicating way or do I explicitly state the fact that they are working together to put on a show? Currently, I feel like I have enough implications that it should be transparent, but I wondered what you all thought. In another scenario it could be that two people are speaking about an incident that never occurred, or someone is replying in a sarcastic manner, or two or more people are interacting in a way that each of them understand, but others in the room don't. Do we imply that the incident never occurred, that the reply was sarcastic, that there is a secret being kept from others? Or do we explicitly state that these things are taking place?
