* {{Trope Namer|s}} (via the Baba quote above) Atsushi Onita, founder of Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling. Once a promising junior heavyweight in Baba's Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling, a potentially career-ending knee injury forced him to take up a heavily brawling and gimmicks-based style in order to continue his career.

* During FMW's first run, its two main rivals were Wrestling International New Generation and International Wrestling Association Japan. While W*ING did have fire and nails, it couldn't it's death matches were slightly less extreme and less frequent than FMW, instead trying to compete through use of more surreal angles and gimmicks like the crypt keeper and cross promotion with WWC in Puerto Rico and UWA in Mexico. IWA rose out of W*ING's ashes when this approach failed, still looking to distinguish itself with much of the W*ING talent and partnering with foreign bodies like the Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA but also by applying more garbage wrestling in more unique ways, such as The King Of The Death Match Tournament. They also failed, though enjoyed brand stayed active much longer thanks in part to a Puerto Rican branch.

* It's a one-line gag, but garbage wrestling in ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' apparently involves gnomes and zero-gravity.

* In Mexico, these are known as "extremos" and are mostly associated with independent circuit promotions such as NGX, [=RevoluXion=] Hardcore, DTU and GLC due to Wrestling/{{CMLL}} not having much use for the style, having already lost one TV deal to MoralGuardians even after cutting all blood out of their shows. Some of CMLL's national rivals such as Wrestling/{{AAA}} have managed to broadcast these match types without losing any deals but only indy and foreign based promotions have divisions exclusively for extremos.

* According to Wrestling/CarlitoColon, garbage wrestling, or at least blood n' guts, is what the majority of Puerto Rican fans want to see. He may have a point, though garbage matches have been rarer in WWC since the new millennium they have continued on with scaffold matches long after they had fallen out of favor nearly everywhere else and company founder, his father Carlos Colon, was about as brutal a garbage wrestler as they come. In fact, the trope naming promotion FMW got the idea to use barbed wire from WWC! WWC was also the first promotion to create hazards by lighting things on fire. That famous ECW scene where the fans bury the ring in thrown chairs? That had already happened in WWC to Ox Baker! "Super Fly" Wrestling/JimmySnuka diving off the top of a cage? Puerto Ricans already associated that with Gypsy Joe!
