Wrestling's patron saint of Memetic Mutation


Even the world of wrestling is not safe of memes, (what?) most of which were started either by Wrestlecrap (what?) and their original Message Board (now the Freaking Awesome Network forums), (what?) or their rivals over at 420chan's /wooo/ (what?), or occasionally, fresh out of Botchamania. (what?)


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."'
  • Bret Hart screwed Bret Hart.

Michael Buffer: Bret "Hitman" Clark.
Bret Hart: Who are you t-to... to doubt El Dandy?

Owen Hart: You're too damn selfish, and that's why you're sitting there with a bad leg! And that's why I kicked your leg out of your leg!

Little Kid: I hate you Batista!
Batista: I hate you too!

Fan: Go back to Toronto!
Chris Jericho: I'm from Winnipeg, you idiot!

Scott Steiner: "And not only is she ugly, SHE'S FAT!" *three seconds later* "SHE'S FAT!" *End of the promo* "And don't bring her any food, 'cause SHE'S FAT!"

Edge: * running down the ramp with the Money In The Bank briefcase* I'M CASHING IT IN! I'M CASHING IT IN! RING THE DAMN BELL!

Michael Cole: VINTAGE UNDERTAKER! VINTAGE FINLAY! I have never ever seen Batista jump off the top rope before in my life, I swear to God! Tonight marks the first time the WWE Championship has ever been defended in Canada!

    • Michael Cole must suffer the Fleeting Demographic Rule.
      • Some nights, I think Michael Cole suffers from the Seven Minute Rule.
        • Seven Second Rule more like. Also, Number 209-Armbar.
    • Not to mention his seeming inability to say the word 'head'. 'Skull' will always be substituted, context be damned.
      • Also substitute "spine" for back.
    • Michael Cole: No! No, not this way! NOT THIS WAY!
      • DAMMIT!
      • AND I QUOTE
      • The Smackdown Tenth Anniversary show got some laughs lampshading this by having Cole, at a party, yell out "VINTAGE SHRIMP!" when he ate, "VINTAGE HORNSWOGGLE!" when Hornswoggle played some pranks, and "VINTAGE PUNK!" when CM Punk walked into the room. Needless to say, this led to even more amused and enthusiastic meme production.
      • OH MY!
      • He's recently taken to screaming "X GOT LUCKY!" when somebody he hates beats somebody he likes.
      • Miz-gasm in 3, 2, 1....

      • It's not just shocking! IT'S THE ULTIMATE SWERVE!
    • As well as any reaction from TNA color commentator Don West:

Don West: DID YOU SEE THAT?! DID YOU SEE THAT?! PELE! PELE! HE HIT THE PELE! FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!!

      • The smarks would strike again, as one sign could clearly be seen that read, "YES, DON WEST, WE DID SEE THAT."
    • And of course, Good Ol' J.R.:

Jim Ross: BAH GAWD KANG! STUNNER! STUNNER! HE BROKE HIM IN HALF!

  • John Morrison's "We don't have (X) at the Palace Of Wisdom!"
    • This troper's personal favorite, from the intro to the 45th episode of The Dirt Sheet -- "The only reason I allow churches to exist is because I don't want people praying at the Palace of Wisdom."
    • John Morrison is the Royal Rumble Ninja.
    • ...
    • #397: Armbar

  • Rellik is Killer spelled backwards.
  • Anything to do with Kenta Kobashi and "burning," "chops," and/or "cancer." Especially him defeating his own cancer (in actuality a tumor which cost him his right kidney) with wrestling moves.
  • Kurt Angle not only won a gold medal, but can do almost anything else, "with a broken freakin' neck!"
    • He also tore his quad this morning, and he's fine.
      • But, he's not a fan of... the black people.
        • And if he would go back in time, the one person in history he would want to tap out would have to be... Jesus.
        • TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!!! TAP! TAP! TAP!!!!
    • Ding Dong, the bitch is dead!
    • Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care! Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care! Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care, cause I got Olympic gold medals!
    • YOU SUCK da-da-da YOU SUCK da-da-da YOU SUCK
    • Angle's reason for the comments he made on Twitter: his account was hacked.
  • Bobby Lashley: "You say your name is Finlay and you love to fight? I say your name is Finlay and you're a bath-turd!"
    • Also, if it's ever been a Lolcat, expect it to be associated with Lashley. Especially Pokemon-related ones.
      • And what does Lashley think of all this? Does he like it? NOOOOO!!!
  • Lest we forget - the The Samoan Bulldozer...YOU MANGA!

  • Number 494 - ArmBAR

      • Thumbs up to support Jeff Hardy's voyage to Pluto.
      • This troper is starting to think this generated one of the funniest inside jokes in wrestling history when Kevin Nash described CM Punk as "A guy who looks like he should be managing a Waffle House", and CM Punk smiled and responded, "I like Waffle House, I don't know why you would say that."

  6. A meme inserting a disinterested CM Punk into various images.
  7. Explanation This spawned when a guy who posted spoilers from Smackdown showed more interest in getting himself over rather than recapping the show, and proudly claimed that he booed the faces and cheered the heels. He was deservedly mocked in the comments section.

  21. Explanation Prior to Alberto Del Rio's in-ring WWE debut, his bio was accidentally published on WWE.com early.

  31. Explanation Edge brought up on the 9/16/2011 edition of The Cutting Edge that in the 15 years of Henry's career, he hasn't had one World Championship, whereas Edge managed 11 in his 13 years. Henry glared, and stated that the only reason Edge would walk out under his own power for that comment... was because he was right.

  33. Explanation Booker T's response to the above. Even he was caught off-guard by Cole there.
  34. Explanation A response to someone suggesting 'Taker turn heel, with another pointing out that the crowd loves him so much they'll cheer anything he does.

  38. Explanation On the night of WCW's Finger-Poke of Doom incident, announcer Tony Schiavone spoiled the results of Mick Foley's title match, sarcastically daring viewers to change the channel (at the behest of Eric Bischoff). They did, and it costs WCW dearly in the Monday Night Wars.
  39. Explanation Kevin Steen appeared on the Art of Wrestling podcast, hosted by Colt Cabana, and said he was a zoo enthusiast. It stuck.
  40. Explanation The most recognizable clip of audio from this video of CZW's John Zandig cutting a rather intense and indecipherable promo. Has become a regular gag in Botchamania, usually to introduce or used during CZW botches.
  41. Explanation The WWE's (from Michael Cole in particular) recent obsession with trending on Twitter, to the point that promos are actively structured around forcing some phrase to trend, and bragging about every thing trending topic they get, no matter how insignificant or silly.
  42. Explanation A joke based on the hyped up return of Brodus Clay, complete with many vignettes, which was delayed by John Lauranitis to the next week...then the next week, and the next week, delaying his return weekly for over two months, before he finally debuted with a completely different gimmick than what was advertised in the original vignettes.

  44. Explanation Clay referred to William Regal as a funky chicken on an episode of Smackdown and it was easy to mishear as this.
  45. Explanation Chalk this up to a) the Gratuitous Engrish of Japanese puroresu announcers and b) their efforts to convey just how intense Kobashi's clotheslines are. This also applies to Stan Hansen's ridiculously stiff lariats.
  46. Explanation Following the disappointing ending to TNA's 2011 Bound For Glory where Booby Roode lost his TNA title match against Kurt Angle despite a huge hype machine promoting Roode's rise to the top, a dirtsheet report came out claiming that Hulk Hogan personally changed the ending of the event because he personally felt Roode wasn't ready to be a star. Angry smarks turned it into the preceding quote, with it jokingly applied to up and coming stars in wrestling, and older established stars conversely described as "ready".
  47. Explanation On /wooo/, the Haitch Combo is posting a two part joke accompanied by the linked fanart of Triple H. The joke's punchline is often a Incredibly Lame Pun involving burials or squashing.
  48. Explanation After website Cageside Seats posted this article on insane backstage WWE stories (if it's to be believed), the line (which Triple H allegedly asked to whichever unfortunate creative team member delivered him that show's script) caught on to make fun of Triple H's Wag the Director tendencies in his prime.
  49. Explanation Explanation:The release message displayed on WWE.com; "Future Endeavors" later became part of John Laurinaitis's gimmick and one of his catchphrases.
  50. Explanation This song by Fuel, which was used during Ric Flair's retirement, became an unofficial theme song of releases and firings.
