* Former Wrestling/{{WWE}}, and now Wrestling/{{TNA}}, wrestler Wrestling/KurtAngle once turned a rabidly pro-hometown-boy Pittsburgh crowd against him by declaring, "If you were to give America an enema, Pittsburgh is where you'd stick the hose."

* Wrestling/ScottSteiner was infamous in WCW for getting a cheap pop from mentioning something famous from the town the event was in...then immediately saying it sucked and that the audience were white trash fatasses for liking it. More often than not, the wrestler he would be facing would be a favorite in that town, and he would earn further heat by bashing them.

**When David Ball's song "Riding with Private Milone" was on the charts, he did a live performance on WSM, and he replaced the line, "But it picked up that oldies show especially late at night" with, "But it picked up WSM especially late at night." WSM played this version most of the time even though it was a live version with only David playing the guitar rather than the studio recording.

* In Music/GreenDay concerts, Billie Joe changes any lyrics that namedrop their homeland (for instance, in [[Music/AmericanIdiot "Holiday"]], "the representative from California has the floor", and in "Youngblood", "she said 'fuck you, I'm from Oakland') with wherever the show is.

* Even non wrestling fans remember Wrestling/SgtSlaughter waving the Iraqi flag. Could there be cheaper heat? And it almost cost him his life and the company a lot more -- Slaughter remarks on that to this day when discussing that 1991 phase of his WWE career. It got so bad that the house shows between when he won the WWE title and lost it to HulkHogan would often have two main events: Slaughter's title defense would go on mid-way through the card so they could get him out of there before he would literally get killed! (A more standard "send the crowd home happy" main event would soothe some of the anger).

* Parodied in the pro-wrestling send-up episode of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' with "Fire Nation Man", who waves a flag around, talking in a bad Russian accent, and then sings something which was probably not actually the Fire Nation anthem.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' - Peter takes Cleveland to a wrestling match, in order to try and get Cleveland to actually express some anger after being cheated on by Loretta. Wrestling/RandySavage is in the ring haranguing the crowd: "I must be in ''Quahog'', because all I see is a bunch of ''hicks''!"

-->" I heard a rumor that you play football here in Manchester, (Manchester had just won, massive pop.) Oh, well that leads to another question, is the team any good?" (Further pop for Mick Foley.)
*** Wrestling/KellyKelly seems to have adopted a variant of Cena's old look.

* Used and lampshaded by Doug Benson in ''Series/LastComicStanding'': in a joke involving one of those "The end is nigh" types asking him if he's going to Hell, "Sorry, I'm not headed in that direction... but if I ''were'' going to Bakersfield - BOOM! Local reference, right outta the gate!"
** Don't forget: "Anyone here from Canada?" *large part of the crowd cheers* "Canada sucks!" *crowd laughs*
