''Wrestlicious'' is an American television show produced by Wrestling/JimmyHart and Lottery winner Jonathan Vargas who funded the show with his winnings. It's an all-women's wrestling show and it is purely SoBadItsGood. It is a show of over the top gimmicks (who each get introduced with a catchy little rap like the one above), pink ring ropes, cheesy segments and a commentator that let looses a HurricaneOfPuns in every match (while sounding eerily like Creator/StanLee). And yet, it features some of the top women wrestlers in North America including many Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} stars. Its flagship show is ''Take Down'', which Viacom wished to pickup for a second season.

* GratuitousRap: The first couple of episodes opened with these as a nifty way for the characters to introduce themselves. It's almost amazing how many words actually rhyme with "Wrestlicious".

* [[AsHimself As Herself]]: Lacey Von Erich, the only girl on the show who doesn't have a gimmick. Also Daizee Haze is pretty much playing the same character she normally plays on the indies as Marley.

* SheCleansUpNicely: Not probably the intended effect but Mercedes Martinez isn't exactly known for her looks. But in her costume as Maria Toro, she's surprisingly pretty looking.

* SpiritualSuccessor: The show is essentially a reboot of ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_of_Wrestling Women of Wrestling (WOW)]]'', which itself was the successor to ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorgeous_Ladies_of_Wrestling G.L.O.W. (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling).]]'' A couple of ''WOW'''s girls played characters on the show too. Also of Crush, an extremely short lived promotion from 2003. They taped a pilot and shopped it around, but it never got picked up.

* ActingForTwo: Nikki The NY Knockout played both Toni The Top and Super Nova (under a mask).
* ActorAllusion: The Canadian Ninjas (Nicole Matthews and Portia Perez) and The Experience (Lexie Fyfe and Malia Hosaka) wrestle as tag teams on this, as the Naughty Girls and Lunch Ladies respectively.
** The commentator liked to refer to [[Wrestling/VonErichFamily Lacey Von Erich]] as "The Beautiful Person".
** When Paige Webb was ShakingHerHairLoose, the commentator remarked "she has lovely hair, it would be a shame if anything happened to it". Serena Deeb (who plays Paige Webb) debuted on ''[=WWE SmackDown!=]'' in a memorable segment where Wrestling/CMPunk shaved her head bald.



* AllStarCast: As far as women's wrestling goes. Wrestling/DaizeeHaze, Wrestling/MercedesMartinez, Rain, Serena Deeb, Lexie Fyfe, Jennifer Blake, Portia Perez, Nicole Matthews, Wrestling/DaffneyUnger, Lacey and Josie.
** Season 2 tapings also featured Brittney Savage, Santana Garrett and Ivelisse Velez.



* BellyDancer: Aziza.



* CanonName: Marley was only given a first name but according to Daizee Haze, the character's last name is Sebastian.



* FakeNationality: Canadians Jennifer Blake (Autumn Frost), Portia Perez (Faith) and Nicole Matthews (Hope) are billed from Anchorage, Alaska and Boston, Massachusetts respectively. Draculetta is naturally billed from Transylvania.



** Aziza appears ready to compete in a match but it gets changed and she's never seen again.



* HollywoodNun: Sister Ophelia wears the traditional 'penguin' habit and also carries a cane around.
* HollywoodVoodoo: White Magic. Armed with voodoo dolls, magic stick and magic powder.



** The Naughty Girls' names are Faith, Hope and Charity. They're heels.



* MsFanservice: Inverted. Sister Ophelia and the Lunch Ladies are the only characters that don't provide Fanservice.
* NaughtyNuns: Averted. Sister Ophelia is a non Fanservice character managing the Naughty Girls. Though she does cane the girls if they misbehave and keeps a close eye on the money box.



* TheOtherDarrin: The girl who appears as Draculetta in the opening rap is not the one who plays the character on TV. That is actually TNA's Daffney.
** Several of the characters appeared in the SpiritualPredecessor Crush, but were not played by the same women.



* PlayingAgainstType: Christie Ricci (Glory) is not normally an AllAmericanFace, Amber O'Neal (Charlotte) is typically a bitchy heel, Jennifer Blake (Autumn Frost) is normally a GenkiGirl.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Lizzy Valentine was originally going to play Shauna-Na but they had no other heels to play Kandi Kisses.
** Jimmy's Angels, Malibu [=McKenzie=], Super Nova and many others taped matches that could clearly be seen in the opening sequence but never aired for some reason.
** Mia Yim wrestled several ''Wrestlicious'' house shows but never appeared as a character on TV.
