** In "Tiger Philanthropist", Amethyst gives up wrestling because, thanks to recent CharacterDevelopment, she no longer needs it as an outlet for her frustration. Steven tries to retool his Tiger Millionaire persona as "Tiger Philanthropist" because of how much [[VitriolicBestBuds Lars]] enjoyed seeing him wrestle, but he finds [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks Lars doesn't like the direction Steven's taken his wrestling persona]].

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'' has the VampireDetective visit a lucha libre event with a retired wrestler who is so disgusted with the shows he never sits through the whole thing. The show in fact regularly holds tributes to the guy as Angel witnesses but he never stays long enough to see them honor him. The rest of the plot is more of an homage to Wrestling/ElSanto and his film career (spent fighting gangsters, robots, vampires and other monsters).

* One of the endgame story missions in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' sees the Boss and Angel de Muerte double-team the DragonAscendant Killbane in an over-the-top wrestling match aptly titled "Murder Brawl", complete with live commentary, ridiculous weapons, and massacring mooks with a chainsaw. The whole episode is justified in that Killbane's entire gang is composed of evil {{Masked Luchador}}s, so his power base can only be destroyed if he is defeated in a wrestling match by another pro wrestler (the original plan was for Angel to do this, but Killbane disables him, leaving it up to the Boss alone).

* The second case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'' somehow manages to combine this with a {{Wutai}} town and Yokai plot. Yeah, it's a crazy series.

* One ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse story had Mickey investigate a traveling group of wrestlers for thefts happening in the towns they visited, finding both confirmation that the matches are scripted... And discovering that [[ProWrestlingIsReal the wrestlers also have legitimate fighting skills]]. The bit about the skills is made clearer when the culprit, a rather skinny cruiserweight, is unmasked and [[UnderestimatingBadassery a dozen cops try and arrest him expecting no resistance]] only for him to [[OneManArmy kick their collective asses]] until the other wrestlers ([[GenreSavvy that Mickey had in the next room just in case]]) join the frame.
This list shows the last 10 events of 150. Show all.
