I think that individual wrestlers should go into a /Wrestler/ namespace but that organization behind them (like WWE) and all that is properly for the recently-created /Creator/ namespace.

I agree that Power Stables should be lumped into /Wrestler/, but the Royal Rumble thing looks more like a single exhibition - not sure what that sort of events would go under.

Query: Where would wrestlers who are also known for their other media-related professions go?

Basically, people like Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson (Wrestler and Actor) and Chris Jericho (Wrestler and the Face of the Band for Fozzy.)

I don't know at all where events of any kind should go - perhaps make another Wiki Talk thread?

About this one, can we agree on wrestlers going into /Wrestler/ namespace?

[up][up] Agreed. I'd go with which ever came first with the other as a redirect.

[up]Agree on all 3 points: Promotions on /Creator/, events on another thread, and this one to a Single Prop crowner like /Creator/?

Events are mostly televised, so why not Live-Action TV?

[up]That makes sense, but let's make a different thread for that. And the crowner [up][up] needs hooking.

If we used Wrestling/ instead of Wrestler/ we could use the same namespace to cover wrestling events. I think I like Wrestling/ better for that reason.

Rhymes with "Protracted."
Mar 17th 2012 at 8:19:16 PM

[up] That's a good idea, much more inclusive.

I like that idea, especially since it would include wrestling-related personalities who aren't wrestlers, like Vince Mcmahon, Jim Ross, and Joey Styles.

[up][up][up]I'd agree with that, but WWE and these organizations behind should go to /Creator/ still.

Moreover, the crowner just talks about /Wrestler/. Get a new crowner?

A multi-prop crowner would probably be better, yes.

I was thinking less about the creators and more about the events. Wrestle Mania, Summer Slam, Royal Rumble, and Survivor Series want namespaces too, after all.

I would say yes. The Rock is a wrestling persona. Dwayne Johnson is an actor who happens to also play The Rock.

I think this is sufficient consensus. Adding Wrestling/ to the list of Media Namespaces.

Three wrestlers out there (as well as WWE) are now relocated to the Wrestling/ namespace. All three of the wrestlers relocated had some time ago been given the Wrestler/ namespace to clear up ambiguities.

I now go by Graf von Tirol.

El Santo is less about his wrestling career and more about his film career, in which he played a fictionalized version of himself. If we had a Character/ namespace, that's where he'd belong.

I didn't write any of that.

It could fit in the Film/ namespace since it's mostly about the films.
