Pro Wrestling Terms Vocabulary

SAY HI TO THESE GUYS and thousands others in the PERSONALS AREA

Angle - A storyline in wrestling used to set up a match or a feud. A good or bad angle can often be a big factor in how much money is made by matches, a good angle can also propel a wrestler to the top of the card or cause irreversible career damage. 

Babyface - The good guy in a wrestling angle. The babyface is intended to be the guy/girl the fans rally behind in their battles with the dastardly Heels. A babyface will tend to play to the crowd, make heroic comebacks or as is usually the case in Japan, fight with the most heart.

Backyard Wrestling - A form of wrestling held backstage by thrill seekers who are usually untrained. Wrestling on trampolines or whatever they can get their hands on, the (usually) kids work their "matches" by hitting each other with any foreign objects laying around or jumping off anything tall in the area. It's not something which tends to be looked on kindly within the business hence people saying that poor wrestlers look "like they came straight from their backyard".

Bait and Switch - When a promoter teases the fans into believing one thing is going to happen then switches to something else resulting in shock and surprise or downright confusion and disappointment. When done well bait and switch can save a storyline and set up programming for a few months (e.g. HHH being revealed as the mastermind behind the who ran over Austin saga as Rikishi was flopping in 2000) but when it gets executed poorly (e.g. Ric Flair being revealed as the Black Scorpion) it can ruin ratings and make the guys involved damaged goods for a while.

Beatdown - A group of wrestlers (more or less always heels) delivering a beating to one or two wrestlers.

Billy Gunn'd - Specifically relates to a failed push for a King of the ring victor in WWE inspired by the 1999 winner Billy Gunn whom the then WWF attempted to push to the moon only for Billy to bomb in spectacular fashion, thus anyone who fails to register an impact during their post KOTR push and is subsequently bumped back down to the mid or undercard is adjudged to have Billy Gunn'd his kingship.

Blade - The implement used to carry out a bladejob. The blade is usually either a razor blade or a snap off piece from a Stanley knife that should be able to slice quickly but not deeply.

Bladejob - The method wrestlers use to get blood in their matches. A blade is hidden either under the wrestlers wrist tape or in their trunks (some are rumoured to have hidden blades under their tongues in the past) and then taken out and used by the worker to quickly slice across his/her forehead (because the forehead contains no major arteries or veins but can still produce an impressive looking amount of blood). The wrestler usually does this whilst lying either face down on the mat or the floor where they hide their face whilst carrying out the bladejob although some more skilled guys (Shawn Michaels, Randy Savage) have been able to pull them off in mid air in the past, of course a good amount of blood can add infinite drama to a match which is what makes the bladejob an important part of wrestling's book of tricks.

Blown Spot - A spot gone wrong, if a worker for whatever reason is unable to execute a spot correctly then he/she has blown it.

Blowoff - The finishing point to a feud. Should usually be a match but in some cases can be a backstage skit. The blowoff is what all the bookers "hard" work is leading to, a successful blowoff can make a career and a draw a poor blowoff can break one.

Bonzo Gonzo - A Scott Keith-ism used during tag/multi-man matches when everyone is in the ring at once and the ref has lost control. Apparently comes from a one off 80's piece of TV.

Build - The meat of the match and the way the wrestlers work towards the finish, if the finish was a Figure Four leg lock then good build would be working the leg leading up to it.

Buried - When a worker is jobbed out by repeatedly losing to kill their drawing power, usually either because they've upset someone backstage, someone backstage considers them a threat to their spot or because they are leaving the company and the bookers don't want them to go to another company strong.

Buyrate - The amount of shows sold for a particular Pay Per View. Buyrates are one of the figures that mark a successful (or not so successful) company.

Card - The list of matches on a show.

Carriable - Used to describe a wrestler who probably couldn't put on a good match with workers of his/her own level or below, but is capable of being carried to a great match by a superior worker.

Carry - When a wrestler does the bulk of the work in the match carrying their opponent and making them look good. A good carry job will be the one you don't notice but signs to look for are one guy calling most of the spots, bumping all over the place for their opponents, etc. Basically if one guy is doing a lot and one guy isn't then the guy doing stuff is the carrier!
