Kayfabe, term used to describe the illusion (and up-keep of the illusion) that professional wrestling is not staged (i.e. that the on-screen situations between performers represent reality). Also used by wrestlers as a signal to close ranks and stop discussing business due to an uninformed person arriving in earshot. The term is said to have been loosely derived from the Pig Latin pronunciation of the word "fake" ("akefay").

That article is not very well-written, but you get the point...

Yes, it's all about the kayfabe. And not breaking kayfabe. We use a lot of these terms (e.g., pop, bump, heat, angle) for karaoke, too, but don't tell anyone.

oh, the pig Latin connection! Of course of course. Although in the old WWF, the company internally wrote it as K. FABE (when written).
