Now it may seem odd to talk about wrestling in regards to the WoW story but it has a lot of interesting comparisons. Both of them have to deal with multiple different fan bases (different wrestlers, Horde vs. Alliance, racial heroes). Both of them have to somehow 'pretend' it's real when it's patently set ahead of time. Both of them have to somehow keep the losers (or more specifically the loser's fans) interested despite the obvious railroading.

This doesn't have anything to do with Horde or Alliance but it's cool to look at other situations that bear much more similarities to WoW than the usual book or movie comparisons (which, by the way, are stupid...:)

I'd much rather watch Celebrity Deathmatch: WoW Edition
