* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In August 2017, {{Wrestling/Natalya|Neidhart}} condemned {{Wrestling/Naomi}} for, among other things, turning the [=SmackDown=] Women's Championship belt into "a toy" (Naomi had flashing lights added to it upon winning the title, as part of her "Feel the Glow" gimmick). This seems very similar to what many people said about Wrestling/JohnCena's WWE Championship "spinner" belt, but the latter was never brought up in {{kayfabe}}.

The history of pro wrestling is a bit convoluted; until the late '80s/early '90s, promoters claimed that wrestling was a legitimate sport, and attempted to hide the fact that it was scripted at all costs. The truth is the performances are as standardized and stylized as Japanese kabuki theatre, or ''CommediaDellArte'' -- each match is a miniature set piece, using stock characters, "plots" and "twists". This has become more obvious in recent years with the increased sense of theatre provided by the major promoters and programs. As more and more wrestling fans grew wise to the fact that wrestling was scripted and choreographed, promoters had no choice but to reveal [[{{Kayfabe}} the secret]] that everybody already knew by that point anyway. Vince [=McMahon=] went so far as to televise a speech on an episode of ''Monday Night Raw'', in which he promised to "stop insulting (fans') intelligence" and referred to Raw as an "action-adventure" series.
