Memes: Professional Wrestling
Wrestling's patron saint of Memetic Mutation. Deal with it!

*static* DEA-

Even the world of wrestling is not safe from memes, most of which were started either by WrestleCrap and their original Message Board (now the Freakin Awesome Network forums), or their rivals over at 420chan's /wooo/, or occasionally, fresh out of Botchamania.
The cameras pan over the crowd, highlighting the various signs and other things the fans brought from home. Then the camera zooms in on a sign stating, FOLEY IS GOD.
  • Many WWE catchphrases make their way to get quoted by people who don't know the source. Statements like Stone Cold's, "That's the bottom line." Rock: "Layeth the smacketh down." Hulk Hogan's, "(name)-amania." The Undertaker's, "I'll make you famous." And, I knew that Chris Jericho had made it when I heard a cartoon character call his sister an "Ass-clown."
  • A Lex Luger T-shirt promo in 2005 gave birth to many memes, such as "I DON'T KNOOOW!" or "Billy what'shisname."'

    • "That's my title, and come this Sunday, I'll be needing it back!"
    • "Congratulations, I want my rematch"

    • Batista rips his skinny jeans!
    • Bluetista explanation

    • Michael Cole must suffer the Fleeting Demographic Rule.

    • Michael Cole: No! No, not this way! NOT THIS WAY!
      • DAMMIT!
      • AND I QUOTE

Needless to say, this led to even more amused and enthusiastic meme production.
