Recap / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 S 6 E 4 Headlock Prime

Raphael is frustrated that his brothers want to stay in the penthouse rather than explore the city, so when he sees an advert for a Galactic Wrestling Match he's excited to go. With Leo in tow to make sure he doesn't get into trouble, Raph heads out to the match, only to find professional wrestling has changed a lot in the last 100 years. But when a disgraced former wrestler shows up seeking revenge Raph gets a little more action than he'd bargained for.

This episode provides examples of

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Triple Threat's yellow-hued head.
  • Honor Before Reason: When Raph fights Triple Threat in the ring, he initially refuses to use his sais because "only bad guys cheat in wrestling". When he realizes Triple Threat isn't playing by the rules, however, he decides it's time to get out his weapons.
  • Monowheel Mayhem
  • Multiple Head Case: Triple Threat
  • Pro Wrestling Is Real: In 2105 Pro Wrestling has become a legit sport. However, being from the past, Raphael is unaware of this and treats it like it's all a show, at least until he gets his shell kicked by a disgruntled wrestler.
