* After being destroyed by the newly formed nWo, Wrestling/{{Sting}} disappeared for almost a year, and returned looking like [[Franchise/TheCrow Erik Draven]].
** Fast forward over a decade, Sting became so obsessed with taking the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/tna/tna-h.html TNA World Heavyweight]] title from Wrestling/BobbyRoode, that he started smearing his make-up to the point that he started to look more like [[Film/TheDarkKnight the Joker]].
* Wrestling/RingOfHonor regular Wrestling/JimmyJacobs officially dubbed his FinishingMove the [[ClassicCheatCode "Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start"]]. The commentators, more often than not, just call it the "Contra Code".
* For the last several years, Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr has appeared at ''Wrestling/{{Wrestlemania}}'' wearing a costume clearly inspired by a fictional character. This used to be just superheroes (most often TheFlash, going back to Wrestlemania XX), but last year, he was dressed as The Joker... and then this year, he was one of the Na'vi from ''Film/{{Avatar}}''.
** He was recently dressed in an homage to ''Film/IronMan'' (probably in commemoration of the movie sequel's release in theaters).
** At ''[=WrestleMania=] XXVII'', Rey dressed in an outfit inspired by ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.
* Prior to making his entrance, Wrestling/CMPunk will stop at the stage and shout [[ComicBook/FantasticFour "It's clobberin' time!"]] prior to his matches.
* Wrestling/BethPhoenix and her ring gear are clearly a shout out to Franchise/WonderWoman, complete with headband. She even wrestled in skirts in 2011. Wrestling/MickieJames in Wrestling/{{TNA}} also once wore ring gear that was an obvious nod to Wonder Woman as well.
* FCW's Paige and her RavenHairIvorySkin look as well as her mysterious nature was intended as a nod to Lisbeth Salander as she debuted in FCW around the same time ''[[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo]]'' was released.
* Literalized by luchador Damien 666 in his match against Gran Naniwa at the Super J Cup 1995 Tournament, December 13, 1995, as Damien would shout out the name of a wrestler then do one of his moves.
* When she first debuted as Wrestling/EricBischoff's on-air assistat, TNA's Brooke was originally refered to just as [[{{Film/Superman}} Miss Tessmacher]].
* TNA rookie Jay Bradley uses a powerful lariat as his finisher, and his elbow pad reads [[Franchise/EvilDead "THIS IS MY BOOMSTICK!"]].
* [[BigBeautifulWoman [=BBW=]]] indy wrestler Rosie Ruth wears a baseball uniform and wields a bat (a reference to her being Babe Ruth's great granddaughter) and paints her face to look like one of the [[Film/TheWarriors Baseball Furies]].

* A ''possibly'' unintentional pair of shout-outs by Wrestling/{{WWE}} when the theme songs to ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw RAW]] and ''[[Wrestling/WWESmackDown WWE [=SmackDown!=]]]'' were changed to "Burn It to the Ground" by Music/{{Nickelback}} and "Let It Roll" by Divide The Day, respectively; ''both'' songs (whether intentionally or not) sound very similar to the original debut themes for both shows (''RAW'''s untitled original theme and ''[=SmackDown!=]'''s original theme, "Everybody On the Ground", respectively)
