[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* There's never a bad time for Wrestling/BookerT to refer to someone as a "sucka", most often when, at the end of a promo, he asks "CAN YOU DIG IT, SUCKAAAAAAAA?!"
* [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson "YES! YES! YES!"]]
--> [[Main/HeyThatsMyLine "NO! NO! NO!"]]
** And in [[Wrestling/RingOfHonor ROH]], [[CrowdChant "You're gonna get your fucking head kicked in!"]]
* [[Wrestling/CMPunk "BEST IN THE WORLD!!"]]
** [[BorrowedCatchphrase "IT'S CLOBBERIN' TIME!!"]]
** And in the indies, "UsefulNotes/StraightEdge means I'm better than you!"
* In the early years of Wrestling/ProWrestlingZero1 and later, Wrestling/{{TNA}} "[[TheNapoleon It is not the size of the fighter]], [[Wrestling/LowKi but the size of the fight he will bring!]]"
* [[Wrestling/DiamondDallasPage DDP]] wants you to know that in your next match, YOU WILL FEEL! THE! BANG!
* [[Wrestling/{{DGenerationX}} The New Age Outlaws]] had a catch-SPEECH, spoken at the beginning of most of their matches:
** "OH YOU DIDN'T KNOW? Yo' ass better call somebodeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!"
** "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, DGenerationX is proud to present the current/future and (previous reigns)-time TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOORLD...THE ROAD DOGG JESSIE JAMES, THE BAD ASS [[Wrestling/BillyGunn BILLY GUNN]], THE NEW! AGE! OUTLAWS!" "And if you ain't down with that, we got TWO WORDS FOR YA!"
** Witness [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7HZZJov0uc&t=3m47s this clip.]] The intro takes about 2-and-a-half minutes and the fans know every single word.
* Did Wrestling/EddieGuerrero tell you he didn't have a catchphrase? HE LIED!
* Similar to the New Age Outlaws above, Enzo Amore and Colin "Big Cass" Cassidy have an entire catch paragraph that they and the crowd shout during their entrance, and it is as follows:
** "MY NAME IS ENZO AMORE, AND I'M A CERTIFIED G, AND A BONIFIED STUD, AND YOU CAN'T TEACH THAT. AND THIS RIGHT HERE? THIS IS BIG CASS, AND HE'S SEVEN FOOT TALL, AND YOU CAN'T TEACH THAT. (when accompanied by Carmella) AND THIS RIGHT HERE? THIS IS CARMELLA, AND SHE'S HOT AS HELL, AND YOU CAN'T TEACH THAT. BADA BOOM, REALEST GUYS IN THE ROOM, HOW YOU DOIN'?!
** And then after cutting a promo against their opponents in the ring: "There's only ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE YOU, AND I'M GONNA SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU. S. A. W. F. T. SAWFT!"
* Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} would often demand of the camera a simple "WHO'S NEXT?", fitting for a guy who almost never cut a promo.
* Wrestling/HacksawJimDuggan's boisterous HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
* Given the [[ClusterFBomb volatility]] and cult following of his series of shoot interviews, Wrestling/TheIronSheik has turned the list, "Suplex 'em, put 'em in the camel clutch, break his back, fuck his ass, and make him humble!" into a catch phrase.
* [[Wrestling/KurtAngle It's true, it's true!]]
** It's real, it's damn real!
** [[Wrestling/ScottSteiner Big Poppa Pump]] is your hook-up. HOLLA IF YOU HEAR ME!
* Monty Brown had "Feel the power... of [[FinishingMove The Pounce]]!"
* The Mountie "The Mountie always gets his man!"
* "Ravishing" Rick Rude: "What I'd like now, is for all you fat, out-of-shape, ''[alliteration based on city]]'' to be quiet, while I remove my robe, and show these ladies what a REAL man looks like!"
* [[Wrestling/RobVanDam "Mr. Monday Night" Rob Van Dam]] will take time in the middle of the match to remind you he's "the whole fuckin'/damn show!"
* "Ladies and gentlemen, Wrestling/ShawnMichaels has left the building". (a parody of the well known "Elvis has left the building")
* And even the announcers get in on it, which can be traced back to Wrestling/GordonSolie's frequent comment that a wrestler was "wearing the crimson mask".
** Wrestling/GorillaMonsoon frequently dealt with some of the more outlandish claims of Wrestling/JesseVentura and [[Wrestling/BobbyHeenan Bobby "The Brain" Heenan]] with "Will you stop?"
** Wrestling/JimRoss's oft-parodied "[someone's] stompin' a mudhole", "[someone's getting beat] like a government mule", matches (or wrestlers) are "bowling-shoe ugly", and a really good, really vicious beating is a "slobberknocker".
*** In his UWF days, Ross also shouted, "High elevation!" and "Pinning predicament" with amusing regularity.
*** Bah Gawd!
** Wrestling/JoeyStyles, meanwhile, has "OH MY GOD!" (or the lucha-related version, "AY DIOS MIO!"), a wrestler "getting introduced" to various hard-hitting objects, and referring to flying wrestlers as "Air _____".
*** CAT FIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!
** Wrestling/JerryLawler [[{{Flanderization}} is happy to shout "Puppies!" at the slightest provocation.]]
*** His Wrestling/{{TNA}} counterpart, Wrestling/{{Tazz}}, has "Let the pidgeons loose!" whenever a Knockout (especially Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople) enters the ring.
*** Speaking of Taz(z), back in his Wrestling/{{WWE}} days, it was "Well, here comes the pain!" Whenever Wrestling/BrockLesnar's entrance theme played.#
*** And because of that, whenever D'Angelo Dinero enters the arena, Tazz gets to say "Welp, here comes the Pope!"
** Wrestling/{{WCW}}'s Tony Schiavone frequently felt that the particular PPV/Nitro/Thunder/Worldwide/whatever was "[[ItsTheBestTropeEver the greatest night in the history of our sport]]". This has occurred more than once a week, leading some to believe that Schiavone has severe memory problems.
** This is not [[Wrestling/BobbyHeenan Fair to Flair.]]
* When you're [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder nWo]], you're nWo 4 Life!
** And you're "Just... 2... Sweeeeeet!"
* Wrestling lives for these, and virtually every wrestler has CatchPhrase or two, from Wrestling/HulkHogan's "What'cha gonna do?" to Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin's "Gimme a hell yeah!" to Wrestling/TheUndertaker's "Rest In Peace!" to Wrestling/JohnCena's "You can't see me!" (today used more often in his EntranceMusic).
** One of the earliest examples, from a {{Heel}}, is [[Wrestling/SuperstarBillyGraham "Superstar" Billy Graham's]]: "I'm the man of the hour, the man with the power, too sweet to be sour!"
** Wrestling/RicFlair has built up quite a selection throughout his career, from a simple "Wooo!", to "Diamonds are forever... and so is Ric Flair" to "limousine-ridin', jet-flyin', kiss-stealin', wheelin'-dealin' son of a gun" - and of course "To be The Man, you gotta beat The Man!"
** One of the most repeated was [[Wrestling/RandySavage Randy "Macho Man" Savage's]] surprisingly versatile "OOOOOOOHHHH YEAH!"
** [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], at one point, had 16-17 {{Catch Phrase}}s; he would often cut a 5-minute interview consisting entirely of {{Catch Phrase}}s. In fact, the Wrestling/{{WWE}} series ''[[Wrestling/WWESmackDown SmackDown]]'' was derived from one of his trademark phrases, and as such he often referred to the program as "The Rock's Show."
*** One of his phrases involved him asking the victim a question, and as they answer he interrupts with, "IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT/IF..."
*** For example (Billy Gunn's Prayer) "...then your house is gonna shake, the sky will open and God Himself will say, "BOB!" "But my name's Billy-" "IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!"
** Wrestling/{{Raven}} is well known for ending every interview with "Quote the Raven, nevermore"
*** And that's not even his only catchphrase. Other favorites include "so it is written, so it shall come to pass" and "the world is full of kings and queens, who'll blind your eyes and steal your dreams," and, of course, "WHAT ABOUT ME? WHAT ABOUT RAVEN?"
** More recently, Wrestling/RonSimmons returned from Character Limbo to become a fan favorite, complete with merchandise, simply by uttering his old CatchPhrase, 'Damn!', at comically appropriate moments.
** Hi, I'm Wrestling/DolphZiggler.
** [[Wrestling/TripleH It's time to play the game!]]
*** [[Wrestling/TripleH I... AM.. THE GAME! AND I AM... THAT... DAMN... GOOD!!]]
** [[Wrestling/VickieGuerrero EXCUSE ME!!]]
** [[Wrestling/TedDiBiaseJr Priceless]]
** [[Wrestling/DamienSandow You're Welcome.]]
*** Previously used by Perry Saturn in a very different context.
** My name is Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio but you already know that.
** [[Wrestling/ChrisJericho NEVA...EVA...AGAIN!(again pronounced "Uh-GAYNE")]]
*** Will you please... SHUT. THE HELL. UP!!!
** [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys WASSUP!?]]
*** [[Wrestling/RonKillings That's the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but THE TRUTH.]]
** [[Wrestling/TheMiz Because I'm the Miz, and I'M.........AWESOME!]]
*** REALLLLY?
** [[Wrestling/ZackRyder Woo woo woo, you know it!]]
*** Clap it up, bro!
** Wrestling/{{Ryback}} "FEED ME MORE!" "FINISH HIM!"
** [[Wrestling/PaulBearer OHHHHHHHHH YEEEEEEEEESSSSS!!!]]
* How can we forget about the universal "After our fight at [insert PPV here] you no longer be [insert name of the championship here]champion anymore]"
* "[[Wrestling/{{Konnan}} Yo yo yo let me speak on dis! Orale! Arriba la Raza! We are los vatos locos forever, man! We bout it bout it and rowdy rowdy!]]"
* Sean O' Haire: "I'm not telling you anything that you don't already know."
* Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels is giving you permission to worship him..., ...., NOW!
* This victory just proves what Wrestling/ChrisHero always says. "Kings reign supreme."
* "[[Wrestling/CarlitoColon That's not cool.]]"
* Particularly wordy promo from Caprice Coleman? Cedric Alexander's only got one way to follow that. "Amen"

** [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Biblical angels]] almost always introduce themselves with a "Fear not". It's anyone's guess as to [[OurMonstersAreWeird why]].
*** Although it could have something to do with them often appearing out of nowhere while dressed in dazzling white clothing.

* Most of {{Superman}}'s best known catch phrases actually originated in [[Radio/TheAdventuresOfSuperman the highly popular radio show]] that lasted the entire decade of the 1940s, including the openings: "Faster than a speeding bullet!" and "Look! Up in the sky!", etc. Two of the best known are actually audio cues that helped listeners fill in the blanks of their own imaginations. "This looks like a job for Superman!" let the listener know that Clark Kent had just turned into Superman.[[note]]Bud Collyer used to let you know exactly when he'd finished changing in that phone booth: (mild-mannered voice) "This is a job--" (voice drops about an octave and a half) "'''FOR SUPERMAN!!!'''"[/note] "Up, up, and awaaaaaayyyyy!!!!" let the listener know that Superman was now flying.

** His "Great Krypton!" started very early in the comic book, but Clark saying "Great Scott!" started with the George Reeves TV series. It was pretty clear that this was a case of Supie starting to say "Great Krypton" and then covering it up.
