This came up in the Needs An Index thread. I'm not actually familiar with Professional Wrestling, but we could use an index for wrestling-exclusive tropes.

Doesn't Pro Wrestling already list related tropes?

Oct 12th 2015 at 2:27:42 AM

Surprisingly, no. It has a trope list, but it's treated as a work, and doesn't just cover tropes that only or mostly appear in pro wrestling. Also, several of the tropes listed in this YKTTW are not only not listed on that page, but are entirely unindexed.

The Pro Wrestling page could stand to be subdivided into separate pages to make it less unwieldy.

^ I agree. This of course would be one of those pages.

Good idea. Most of those folders should really be seperate indexes, especially the promotions and notable figures in the industry. Tropes that don't apply to any particular brand or competition could be kept on the page, I suppose.

Bump. Any tropes missing here? Hats?

^ Don't seem to be wrestling-exclusive.

Dec 24th 2015 at 2:48:39 AM

^ It's at least related, so I think so.

I mean, Human Hammer Throw isn't wrestling-exclusive either. But you can expect that move to appear in wrestling a lot, and I certainly would expect Grapple Move to show up even more.

What argument is there for discarding this? The consensus of this discussion seems to be that this is a necessary index. Moreover, some of the tropes listed here aren't indexed anywhere.

^ you're confused because there's a discard button, right?

Because this ykttw is made by you, the "discard" button is automatically there for you and only you. The text that says about "ppl deeming this" and such is misleading.

I Say that cuz I don't see a discard button here (there hasn't been 5 bombs yet) and I have similar thing happening in my ykttws.

Listing this in the comments, since the draft itself has a bug that prevents updates: CA Ws is another wrestling tropes without an index.
