The Mets eventually replaced the Dodgers and Giants as the N.L. representative in NY and a lot of those old fans became Mets fans.  And if you're basing your entire perception of American sports fans on what 3 people on a wrestling message said about switching allegiances, then your sample is flawed to say the least.

Amazingly enough, I do know some Americans who are not wrestling fans.
