* CatFight: Apartment wrestling is the major reason why the term cat fight is associated with comedy and FanService, to the point "apartment wrestling" redirects to "cat fight" on ThatOtherWiki. It began in the 1950s when television became more widespread and bored housewives watching it began imitating pro wrestlers in the privacy of their own rooms. Presumably bedroom/living room wrestling wasn't as catchy, though it literally became apartment wrestling in the 1970s when The Fabulous Moolah began renting rooms to take pictures of her students applying holds on each other for Bill Apter's magazines, [[FollowTheLeader inspiring]] a short lived but full fledged "apartment circuit". To this day there remain fans in the US who are happy if they see a women's match degenerate into hair pulling and screaming.

** The cliche is true. Old wrestlers never retire. Even if they're not that personally invested in pro wrestling, even if their knees turn to powder, even if have a profitable side-business going, they'll be back. Every time.
** "Retirement" matches in professional wrestling rarely stick. Furthermore, declarations of retirement often give way to part time work in the business part time or otherwise become less extensive than initially suggested more times than not. (Sometimes for money reason, sometimes just for the love athletes have for their sport). Wrestling/TripleH is a sterling example of juggling both roles.

** "Retirement" matches in professional wrestling rarely stick. (See the 1001 "firings" or "retirements" in the last few years. It's done purely for storyline purposes; the number of times people "retire" and are back the next week is ridiculous.)

* PoisonIsEvil
** One of the oldest and dirtiest tricks in pro wrestling is to poison an opponent by soaking some fabric on your person in an ether based substance and getting it close to his face during the match. This practice was discontinued as pro wrestling became more corporate and liability concerns were raised.
** The "Asian mist", known as the "poison fog" to the Japanese, that was introduced by The Great Kabuki, was initially "just" strong spices, rather than "poison". However, a lore {{technicolor toxin}}s developed over time, including a baby face version in Yuji Nagata's "blue justice mist".
