Can I create a page for the Global Wrestling Federation? It aired on ESPN from 1991 to 1994. It is known for the infamous bungee cord match.

Create away. If you know about a promotion, wrestler or anything related to Professional Wrestling, just add it.

I was asked to bring a conversation to this page. The previous discussion can be found on the Character Sheets subpage. I wanted to know whether wrestlers who already have pages should also be listed on the Character Sheets as well. While many wrestlers worked for multiple promotions and should have specific information related to time in each, what about those who have only worked for one (Kofi Kingston, Ryback, etc.)? Thanks for your help.

Why doesn't this have a section on the forums? It's obviously got a good amount of followers on this wiki, and it's named a large amount of tropes. Does anyone know if there's a way to add a subforum?

Look under the live performance section of the forums. There you will find threads for professional wrestling (one of them was deleted for unknown reasons but replaced by another that's been up for years)

As for no forum column in general? Well, a lot of wrestling fan tropers have left, a lot never post on the forums in general and the current moderation group are not wrestling fans.

If any one knows how to merge or redirect a few pages, could they do that?

Bob Holly, Brodus Clay, Vickie Guerrero

These pages have two Trope Pages, one with the Wrestling/ Namespace and one without. It appears someone created the new page and then didn't redirect or merge, or whatever it you do make them go to the same page if you click on MAIN on the Trope Page.

I would do it myself if I knew how.

Done. The thing to do is redirect the page in Main/ — type [[redirect:Wrestlong/InsertNameHere]] to do so.

Thanks, could you, while you're at it, do it for Bob Backlund?

No problem. And found what I think is the last of bunch, Paul Heyman. I tried the with help you provided but, no luck.

Time for a more detailed version, then. (It probably didn't help that my original post contained a typo!]]

When the content of the page has already been moved and all, you redirect the old page, as you know. To do this:
  1. Open the edit screen.
  2. Replace all the text with [[redirect:.
  3. Type the WikiWorded name of the new page including its namespace. If you're working on the Paul Heyman page, this is Wrestling/PaulHeyman.
  4. You now have [[redirect:Wrestling/PaulHeyman.
  5. Close it with another set of double brackets ]] to give [[redirect:Wrestling/PaulHeyman]].
  6. Save the page. It's now a redirect to the namespaced version, so you'll go to the moved version automatically upon finishing the edit.

If that makes sense, great! If not, say so and I'll pull in someone else to clarify as my explanations get long-winded rather quickly. :)

In "Literature about professional wrestling" a book was released in September 2012 called Lucha Gore: Scares From The Squared Circle, a book containing 16 horror stories all based around pro wrestling. And the first (and best) story in the book is written by Ed Ferrera, former WWE and WCW writer.

I think we should condense the lists of individual wrestlers and tag teams, stables, and miscellaneous entities into 3 different folders. What do other people think about this idea?

Removed this because it was linked to the wrong trope. I don't know the correct trope but I think there is one.

The Hurricane's last gimmick in ECW involved a roar powerful enough to flatten his opponent and force him out of the ring.

I think there needs to be a page for Evolution, the top heel stable from 2003-2005. Considering it served as the launching pad for the careers of Randy Orton and Batista, as well as having been involved in many of the big angles in the time perios, I feel it's a stable just as notable as DX or the Horsemen, if not as long-lived.

May be there should at least short description what is it (like "oiled-up musclemen in short-shorts pretending to fight with each other")? I haven't to watch to enwiki in order to understand that it is not movies, not theatre, but also not real fighting.
