* Lemmings/Sheep - Semi-derogatory Nicknames for WCW and WWE loyalists, respectively; coined during the MondayNightWars era. WCW "lemmings" were willing to follow Bishoff, Hogan and co. off a cliff. Sheep followed whatever insanity Vince [=McMahon=] threw onto WWE programming without question. Large chunks of both fanbases wore said nicknames with defiant pride.

** The 2016 brand split inspired a new [=SmackDown=] Six: Wrestling/BeckyLynch, Wrestling/AlexaBliss, Wrestling/NatalyaNeidhart, {{Wrestling/Carmella}}, {{Wrestling/Naomi}} and [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Nikki Bella]]. All six feuded with each other and were considered to greatly outperform the women of Raw - who had bigger stars. Wrestling/EvaMarie and {{Wrestling/Maryse}} who were also part of Smackdown were not included in this.[[note]]Eva was suspended only a month after her Smackdown debut and thus not in the division. Maryse meanwhile was an acting valet for The Miz rather than a wrestler.[[/note]]

** [=GoatFace=] - Due to an insult by Wrestling/CMPunk on the June 11, 2012 episode of ''[[Wrestling/{{WWERaw}} Raw]]'' which became an instant meme on {{Twitter}}. WWE took this and ''[[AscendedMeme ran with it to the max]]'', to the point where goats have become Bryan's AnimalMotif and his diving headbutt, for example, has been nicknamed "The Flying Goat."

to:

** Winged Eagle - The WWF title belt from 1988 to 1998. This name was semi-canonized when WWE began selling replicas through Figures Inc. It's the longest tenured belt and arguably the most beloved design the WWF/WWE ever had. Since the return of the classic Intercontinental Championship belt design, some of called for the return of this design for the World title as well.
