PW Style Guide
Below is a style guide to creating professional wrestling articles established by consensus among participants of WikiProject Professional wrestling. Please discuss this guide on the WikiProject talk page if you have any ideas about how to fine tune these guidelines.

General

Professional wrestling articles should be written so that everyone can understand its content, not just professional wrestling fans. They should not be written in-universe, which is outlined in the Manual of Style on written fiction. All articles should be written in past tense, excluding future events. The following guidelines should be followed in order for an article to be classified as a B-Class article, in order to be nominated and passed as a Good Article nomination, and/or as a Featured article candidate.

Capitalization

Per MOS:TM, WP:CAPS, and MOS:CAPS

  • In referencing both the show and brand, WWE's Monday night program is to be written Raw, with only an initial capital letter.
  • CamelCases are optional on Wikipedia, but in the interest of uniformity, WWE's Tuesday night program is SmackDown Live, with a capital S and capital D. Post-January 2008 SmackDown references should be written without an exclamation point.
  • Likewise, TNA's Thursday night program is written Impact Wrestling or Impact for short, with only an initial capital letter.

Headings

Per WP:HEAD

  • Limit heading titles to five words or less (not counting dates).
  • Try and limit headings by promotion, although some alternatives are acceptable. If the text for one promotion is getting long, it can be broken up with further subheadings. Use common sense.
  • Do not refer to the subject of the article within the article's headers.
  • Headers should never be wiki-linked.
  • Capitalize the first letter of the first word and any proper nouns in headings, but leave the rest in lower case.

Italicization

Per MOS:TITLE, WP:ITALICS, and MOS:MUSIC

  • Italics are only to be used when referencing a show such as in these scenarios:
  • Do not use italics when referencing a brand, such as in these scenarios:
  • Taglines are to be written with italics and in quotation marks.
  • Album titles are to be written with italics and song titles with quotation marks.
  • Pay-per-view events are to be written with no italics.

Terminology

Per WP:JARGON and WP:WORDS

  • When referring to a wrestler's alignment as a face or heel, the first usage should be wiki-linked and explained in parenthesis, e.g. Heel (bad guy). Alternatively, terms such as "fan favorite", "hero" or "villain" can be used.[a]
  • Avoid parroting branding and marketing terminology used by promotions. Instead of using the terms "WWE Superstar", "WWE Diva", "TNA Knockout" or "sports entertainer", simply use "wrestler", specifying gender if need be. Similarly, avoid using "sports entertainment" as a substitute for professional wrestling. Additionally, avoid referring to WWE fans as "the WWE Universe" and the promotion as "The WWE".
  • The phrase "the late" should be removed before the names of now deceased wrestlers.
  • Change "attacker" to "wrestler" and "victim" to "opponent" in move articles.

Organization

Below are examples of how individual articles can be organized. These are merely suggestions; you do not have to conform to this format.

Biographies

Lead

Include {{Infobox professional wrestler}} and fill it our accordingly. In the case of multiple ring names, billed from locations, etc., the use of {{Plainlist}} is recommended. The actively used ring name(s) and billed location (if more than one) should be in bold.

The lead should typically open with the wrestler's real name that is supported by a reliable source, and if they are known by a ring name, it should be noted in one of the proceeding sentences. In the case of a reliable source not being present for their real name, the lead should open with the wrestler's common name instead.

Summarize the most significant events in the wrestler's career for which they are known, including their stints in promotions, and any championships, accomplishments, and awards that they have won. Tallies of the overall championships or world championships won should be avoided.[b]

Professional wrestling career

Summarize the major events and key points of the wrestler's career. Avoid writing in proseline ("week-by-week" format).

Professional wrestling persona

For characters with notable qualities that cannot be fully covered in the career section. This includes background information, personality traits, inspirations, finishing moves, taunts, gestures, chants, outfits, etc. Commentary or reception from reputable sources is also recommended but must adhere to a neutral point of view.

Championships and accomplishments

The championships won by a wrestler and their accomplishments are compiled in a bulleted list format. Additionally, awards from notable publications (such as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and Pro Wrestling Illustrated) are included. In the case of a non-wrestling personality, this section can be renamed Awards and accomplishments.

Example of Championships and accomplishments list
  • Promotions and publications are to be listed alphabetically and their name in bold.
  • Items should be tiered in this order: championships, accomplishments, awards. Each tier should typically be ordered alphabetically.
  • Parenthesis should follow most items. For championships, note the individual number of reigns with a link to its respective title history article. For accomplishments and awards, note the year it occurred with a link to its respective event article.
  • Other notes (such as oldest, youngest, first, last, only, etc.) are only covered in the relevant prose section and are not listed in this section.
  • With regards to the PWI 500 and PWI Female 50 rankings, only the wrestler's highest position is noted.

Luchas de Apuestas record

A record of the wrestler's Luchas de Apuestas ("betting matches"), prominent in lucha libre, is compiled in a table format. It spans the match winner (with their wager), the loser (with their wager), the location, the event, the date and a column for additional notes. Matches should only be included in this list if at least one of the competitors is risking their mask or hair.

Example of Luchas de Apuestas table
Winner (wager) Loser (wager) Location Event Date Notes
Rey Misterio Jr. (mask) Mr. Cóndor (mask) Acapulco, Guerrero Live event August 14, 1992
Rey Misterio Jr. (mask) Rocco Valente (hair) Tampico, Tamaulipas Live event October 18, 1992
Rey Misterio Jr. (mask) Tony Arce (hair) Acapulco, Guerrero Live event November 6, 1992
Rey Mysterio Jr. (mask) El Bandido (mask) Querétaro City, Querétaro Live event May 28, 1993
Rey Misterio Jr. (mask) Vulcano (hair) Monterrey, Nuevo León Live event September 11, 1993
Rey Misterio Jr. (mask) Misterioso (mask) Tijuana, Baja California Live event December 19, 1996
Rey Misterio Jr. (mask) Eddie Guerrero (championship) Las Vegas, Nevada Halloween Havoc October 26, 1997
Rey Mysterio (mask) Chris Jericho (championship) Sacramento, California The Bash June 28, 2009
Rey Mysterio (stable pledge) CM Punk (hair) Detroit, Michigan Over the Limit May 23, 2010

Professional wrestling highlights / In wrestling

Until June 2018, this section was a standard part of professional wrestling biographies and team articles, but consensus was reached to remove the section completely.[c] If any of the content is significant to the subject of the article, it can be converted into prose. See the "Professional wrestling persona" section in the CM Punk article as an example. It is recommended that the following note, or similar, be placed within the article to inform uninvolved, or new, editors.

<!---The Professional wrestling project (WP:PW) reached a consensus in June 2018 to eliminate the "in wrestling" section. Please do not restore it. Important information should be added into the article as prose, with reliable sources. -->

Championship articles

Lead

Include {{Infobox pro wrestling championship}} and fill it out accordingly. The lead should cover the promotion where the championship was present, when it was established, the number of reigns and individual champions, etc. If the championship is active, note the current champion.

History

A summary of notable information throughout the championship's history, such as how it was introduced and when, the inaugural title holder, name changes, championship belt designs, and so on.

Reigns

A table format is used to display the title's reign history in chronological order. It spans each overall reign number, the champion, their individual reign number, the number of days held, the date, location and event of which it was won, the number of successful defenses, and additional notes. When a championship reaches ten or more reigns, the list of reign history can be split off into its own article (e.g. WWE ChampionshipList of WWE Champions).

Example of champions table
No. Champion Reign Date Days

Location Event Successful defenses Notes Ref.
1 Shiro Koshinaka 1 February 6, 1986 102 Tokyo, Japan Live event 1 Koshinaka defeated The Cobra in a tournament final to become the first champion. [1]
2 Nobuhiko Takada 1 May 19, 1986 123 Tokyo, Japan Live event 6 Defeated Shiro Koshinaka and The Corba in a three-way match. [2]
3 Shiro Koshinaka 2 September 19, 1986 335 Fukuoka, Japan NJPW World 2 NJPW recognizes Koshinaka's reign as lasting 325 days, beginning on September 29, 1986, when the episode aired on tape delay. [3]
Vacated August 20, 1987 Tokyo, Japan House show Vacated due to injury. [4]
  • Successful defenses is only included if the promotion keeps track of them.
  • For tag teams with a name, the team name should come first and the members listed in parenthesis on the next line with {{small}}. In the case of an individual having a different reign number than the team, it should be noted in parenthesis following their name.
  • Rows indicating that the title was vacated or retired, or if the reign is no longer recognized by the promotion, should be colored grey: style="background-color:#e3e3e3"
  • The notes section should only include the following:
    • If the new champion defeated someone other than the previous champion.
    • If the new champion received the title through means other than a match.
    • Match types that were not standard singles matches.
    • Why the title was vacated.
    • The date when the match was aired.
    • If the promotion officially recognizes the reign number or length of reign differently than what actually occurred.

Combined reigns

When there are multiple reigns by at least a single wrestler, an additional table section should be included that combines the number of reigns, days held, and successful defenses of each individual champion.

Example of combined reigns table
Indicates the current champion
Rank Champion No. of
reigns
Combined
defenses
Combined
days held
Combined days held
recognized by WWE
1 Shinsuke Nakamura 2 32 953+ 953+
2 Prince Devitt/Finn Bálor 1 17 292 293
3 Bo Dallas 1 15 280 261
3 Adrian Neville 1 15 280 280
5 Big E Langston 1 7 168 154
6 Kevin Owens 1 8 143 143
  • The table is sorted by the most combined days as champion.
  • If two or more wrestlers are tied in days, priority is given in this order: most reigns, most successful defenses, alphabetical.
  • If a wrestler held the title under multiple ring names, all of the names used while holding the title should be listed in order of which they were used.
  • Combined defenses is only included if the promotion keeps track of them.
  • Combined days held recognized by the promotion is only included if they officially recognize a reign as having lasted a different length than what actually occurred.
  • For tag team championships, there should be two separate tables, one for each team and one for each individual wrestler.

Event articles

Lead

Include {{Infobox Wrestling event}} and fill it out accordingly. For the poster caption, only individually list wrestler names if there are six or below wrestlers; for seven and above, use "various wrestlers". The lead should contain brief details of the event in typically three paragraphs. The first paragraph notes the promotion that produced the event, the date of the event, and the location and venue of the event. The second paragraph explains how many matches were scheduled on the event's card. It should also contain an overview of the event, elaborating the main event(s) and most hyped matches on the undercard. Do not list the process of scoring in this paragraph, only state the outcome of the match and the type of match it was contested in. Generally, the lead can be written in an in-universe perspective since many of the statements are explained in an out-of-universe perspective in the main body prose. The final paragraph covers the reception to the event, such as attendance and pay-per-view buys, and critic reviews of both the event and home video release.

Production

The production section comprises two sub-sections, background and storylines. If one of the sub-sections is not present, then the name of the present sub-section will take precedence as the section name over production.

The background section covers any aspect that pertained to the development and production behind the event. This includes the venue, location, ticket prices, broadcast information, theme music, commentators, etc.

The storylines section should contain details on at least three rivalries and contain no more than 1,000 words. When expanding this section, avoid using wrestling jargon. Generally, the first paragraph contains a brief overview of the way professional wrestling functions. This paragraph should explain that professional wrestling involves scripted plots and storylines. In addition, it should be stated that rivalries cast the wrestlers as a face or a heel. Optionally, it can be stated that the scripted events took place on certain television programs of the promotion. If the event article is about a promotion that features a brand extension, the prose should state that is a storyline division of the company in which employees are assigned to a specific program, called a brand.

When beginning a sentence to describe a rivalry, the word feud should be avoided, unless an explanation of the term is given, which is staged (or scripted) rivalry. Alternately, words such as narrative and plot can be used to provide variance in the writing. The background should only summarize important events that enhanced the rivalry, such as key segments or matches that took place on television shows or pay-per-view events. Since professional wresting is a work of recorded media, Wikipedia's plot guideline should be adhered to; do not write in-depth or weekly results when describing a rivalry. In general, professional wrestling moves should not be described in the background section because this information would only be present if the editor is inserting week-by-week, play-by-play information into prose. The exception is if the move was performed outside an official match, in which case the format guidelines in the event section below should be followed.

Event

The event section generally focuses on the matches from the show itself. Relatively, backstage segments should not be covered unless they are considered notable. An example is from December to Dismember, where Sabu was found injured backstage, leaving him unable to compete in his scheduled match. This section should be split into two subsections, one labeled preliminary matches and the other labeled main event (or main event matches). In the case of pre-show matches (including dark matches and taped matches), they should either be covered in the main heading above these two subsections or given their own subsection, labelled pre-show. The preliminary matches are those that received low promotion by the company. The main event is the final match, but sometimes can include more than one match if other bouts were heavily advertised. When writing this section, transitions should be used from paragraph to paragraph, such as:

The first match was Samoa Joe versus John Cena in a Hell in a Cell match...

The next match was...

Give the name of the match type in which the wrestlers will compete in, along with a brief explanation as to details surrounding the match type and its objective. If the match is a singles match, the jargon term can be used as long as its later explained that it is a "standard wrestling match", which implies that it is a bout contested under regular wrestling standards. If the match is a tag team match, no explanation is necessary as it is a common term that does not require an explanation. However, if the term "ladder match" is used, its explanation should be written in a format that first introduces the transition to the match, the match type, and a brief explanation of the match type:

The following match was a ladder match between CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, where the objective was to climb a ladder and retrieve an object suspended in the air by a cable.

If the match is in an enclosure based match, such as an Elimination Chamber, it should be written in the same format as above but giving a brief explanation of how the ring has been altered for the match:

The main event was an Elimination Chamber match, featuring wrestlers fighting in a ring surrounded by a steel structure of chain and girders, called the "Chamber". In this match, two wrestlers began the match while four others were locked in pods made of acrylic glass; they were released at time intervals until all six competitors were inside the Chamber. Eliminations occurred through pinfalls and submissions.

Only the most important moments during a match that affected the outcome of it should be covered; play-by-play detailing should be avoided, which includes detailing back and forth wrestling. If during a match, a controversial event takes place, such as an interference or a wrestler knocking down a referee, it needs to be noted that as a part of the storyline (or it was scripted) that the said wrestler or referee interfered or was knocked down, respectively.

To avoid jargon, professional wrestling moves should be wikilinked and explained in a brief and neutral point of view the first time they appear in the article. For example:

The Undertaker performed a chokeslam on Henry, lifting him by the throat and slamming him down.

If the name of a move is a nickname for the actual term, such as the "Batista Bomb" for the sitout powerbomb, the nickname should be in quotation marks. For moves that are more technical than others, like the sitout powerbomb, a brief overview of the move should be explained to avoid a sentence of great length and grammatical errors. For example:

Batista then executed a "Batista Bomb", in which he lifted and sat Cena on his shoulders, and slammed him down to the mat.

Submission holds, and how they are performed, do not have to be described such as throws and attacks because holds require steps that are explained in great length, as a result, it is best to simply wikilink them. Both submissions and pinfalls should be described as scoring conditions in a match, depending whether the match is a variant. Pinning variations, such as the roll-up, should be briefly outlined as to how they are performed.

When elaborating the ending of a match, a description of the process of how it ended and the scoring condition as to how a wrestler won the match, should be given, while adhering to the move description guideline outlined above. For example:

After hitting him with a sledgehammer, Triple H covered Shawn Michaels for the pinfall.

Cena then performed the "Attitude Adjustment" on Michaels, in which he lifted and threw Michaels off his shoulders down to the mat. This followed with Cena gaining a pinfall.

Reception

Include attendance for the event, revenue from ticket sales, and the number of pay-per-view buys, if the information is available from reliable sources. Aside from economy, reviews from critics should be included (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Professional wrestling/Sources) and adhere to a neutral point of view. Not all critics need to be from generally reliable sources, but they should be from websites that have a reputation for their reviews, such as 411mania.com or WrestleZone.com, which are only reliable for criticism. Additionally, reception to the home video release of the event may be included. Note if the media is ranked by a major sales chart such as Billboard or if it is covered by review aggregators such as Rotten Tomatoes.

Aftermath

Relevant happenings that followed the event. When covering the aftermath of a rivalry, the key points that affected the feud should be explained in the briefest way possible. Generally, each rivalry should be contained to its own paragraph.

Results

Matches are compiled in a table format using {{Pro Wrestling results table}}. If the article is about a future event, this section is renamed Matches and includes planned matches and their stipulations in order of which they were announced. For an event that has taken place, the results are listed with their stipulations and their duration, in order of which they occurred. Other details should be established in the event section.

Example of results table
No. Results Stipulations Times
1D Heath Slater defeated Brad Maddox Singles match N/A
2P The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston) (c) (with Xavier Woods) defeated Cesaro and Sheamus Tag team match for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship 10:18
3 CM Punk defeated Carlito, Chris Jericho, John Morrison, Montel Vontavious Porter, Mr. Kennedy and Shelton Benjamin Money in the Bank ladder match 15:12
4 A.J. Styles vs. Daniel Bryan ended in a draw Last Man Standing match 22:56
5 Cesaro won by last eliminating Big Show[Elimination order 1] 31-man battle royal for the André the Giant Memorial Trophy 13:25
6 Eddie Guerrero defeated Kurt Angle (c) 2–1 Two-out-of-three falls match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship 28:46
7 Alexa Bliss defeated Bayley and Sasha Banks Triple threat match to determine the No. 1 contender to the WWE Raw Women's Championship 9:46
8 John Cena defeated Wade Barrett by submission Singles match; had Cena lost, he would have had to join The Nexus. 17:06
9 Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) defeated The Rock Hell in a Cell match for the WWE Championship with Mr. McMahon as the special guest referee 32:12
  • (c) – refers to the champion(s) heading into the match
  • D – indicates the match was a dark match
  • P – indicates the match took place on the pre-show
  • The no. column represents either the order in which the matches were announced for a future event or the order in which the matches took place.
  • For future events, the matches column contains officially announced matches and should be modeled after the following example: [Wrestler A] vs. [Wrestler B].
  • The results column contains match results and should be modeled after the following example: [Wrestler A] defeated [Wrestler B].
    • If the match ended in submission, disqualification, or countout, it should proceed the example above with: by [decision].
    • If the match ended in no contest or draw, the result should read: [Wrestler A] vs. [Wrestler B] ended in a [decision].
    • In the case of a battle royal, the result should read: [Winner] won by last eliminating [Final eliminated participant]. The other participants may be noted below the table, if covered by a reliable source.
    • When a match participant is accompanied to the ring, typically by a manager or valet, they should be noted in parenthesis immediately following the participant's name: [Wrestler A] (with [Person B]).
  • The stipulations column is any other information relating to the match itself, such as the type of match, any championships being contested for, or a storyline stipulation in the match. The first word in each row under this column should be capitalized.
    • If the match is contested in a standard one-on-one match, Singles match should be listed. Similarly, if the match is a standard two-on-two match, Tag team match should be used.
    • If the match is contested in a different match type, the stipulations column should list the match type, e.g. Steel cage match.
    • If a championship is contested for in a match, it should be listed as [Match type] for the [championship], e.g. Hell in a Cell match for the WWE Championship.
    • If there is a stipulation to a championship or non-championship match, it should also be listed, e.g. Singles match; had Cena lost he would have had to join The Nexus.
    • A person given special authority over a match, such as a special guest referee or outside enforcer, should be noted following the match type, e.g. Singles match for the NXT Championship with Triple H as the special guest referee.
  • The times column should contain the length of each match as provided by a reliable source. If the time is not available, it should be listed as N/A.
  • It is okay to wikilink articles in this section because tables are the only exceptions to the overlinking guideline of Wikipedia.

Year in professional wrestling

Lead

The lead section should be brief. It only needs to include a one sentence introduction of what the article contains, such as "YYYY in professional wrestling describes the year's events in the word of professional wrestling." Along side this there should be the relevant info box for {{Year nav topic5}} (e.g. {{Year nav topic5|2012|professional wrestling}}.

Sections

The sections the article may contain, should appear in the following order:

  • Calendar of notable live events (broken out into months if the year contains more than 30 events)
  • Tournaments and accomplishments
  • Title changes
  • Awards and honors
  • Notable incidents
  • Retirements
  • Births
  • Deaths

Any section which would be empty, such as births in the 2015 in professional wrestling article is better to not include rather than to include an empty section.

Notability for inclusion

All events which contain their own page and meet wikipedia’s notability WP:GNG may be included in the events section. For example, the Brian Pillman Memorial Show was not produced by one of the below companies, however it contains its own page and therefore can be included on in all four years it was presented. Supercards and pay-per-view events may also be included for the promotions listed in the next section, regardless of their own page existing or not. Events should be listed in the year they occurred, not the year they aired, (e.g. events included on Impact One Night Only (2017) which occured in 2015, should be included on the 2015 page).

The following promotions and their legacy names (acquisition by one of these promotions does not create notability) are deemed notable for inclusion of their tournaments, accomplishments and title changes (or events as described above):

Currently the only two awards that qualify for the awards are Pro Wrestling Illustrated awards and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter awards.

Incidents for inclusion in the notable incidents section should contain their own page, or at least their own section within the article for inclusion. For example, events such as Death of Owen Hart and WWE Performance Center shooting do not contain their own page but contain their own subjection, therefore they can be included. Other events such as Black Saturday and the Montreal Screwjob which contain their own page are also notable for inclusion.

The criteria for inclusion of births, deaths and retirements fall within the criteria laid out in WP:LISTBIO. No red links or unlinked names should be included in this section. Any birth, death or retirement from someone involved in professional wrestling, with their own Wikipedia page, may be included in this section, as long as the proper WP:RS is included.

Additional sections

See also

Include relevant articles in a bulleted list format where useful. For example, in the WWE United Kingdom Championship article, a link to the WWE European Championship would be beneficial to the reader.

References

Articles must meet the requirement for verifiability and include reliable sources with inline citations. Any contentious material or personal information regarding a living person must strictly abide by this guideline. Be mindful of overciting and balancing redundant citations in lead sections or infoboxes. For a list of both reliable sources and sources to be avoided in professional wrestling articles, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Professional wrestling/Sources.

External links

The final section, which is not mandatory, contains relevant external links in a bulleted list format.

For biographies:

External links in wrestling biographies should typically contain their official website ({{Official website}}), wrestling profiles, and IMDb profile ({{IMDb name}}).

  • Links to certain official profiles are supported through templates, such as {{WWE superstar}}, {{Roh roster}}, and {{NJPW profile}}.
  • Profiles from databases can be linked via {{Professional wrestling profiles}}. Sites currently supported are Cagematch.net, Wrestlingdata.com, and Internet Wrestling Database.
  • Online World of Wrestling profiles should not be included in this section.[d]

For other articles:

  • Event articles should contain the official website of the event and the official website of the event's venue.
  • Championship articles should contain the promotion's official listing of the championship's history, in addition to a reliable secondary source of its history.
Example of external links

For biographies (e.g. John Cena):

  • John Cena on WWE.com
  • John Cena's profile at Cagematch.net, Wrestlingdata.com, Internet Wrestling Database
  • John Cena on IMDb

For championship articles (e.g. WWE Championship):

  • Official WWE Championship Title History
  • Wrestling-Titles.com: WWE Championship

For event articles (e.g. WrestleMania XX):

  • Official website of WrestleMania XX
  • Official website of Madison Square Garden

Below external links, include relevant navboxes from Category:Professional wrestling navigational boxes.
