Professional wrestling has accrued a considerable nomenclature through its long existence. Much of it stems from the industry's origins in the days of carnivals and circuses,〔 and the slang itself is often referred to as "carny talk." In the past, wrestlers used such terms in the presence of fans so as not to reveal the worked nature of the business.〔〔 In recent years, widespread discussion on the Internet has popularized these terms.〔 Many of the terms refer to the financial aspects of pro wrestling in addition to performance-related terms.
: A wrestling event where a company's biggest draws wrestle.〔
: A group of a wrestling promotion's top stars who compete at an ''A''-show.〔 (compare ''B''-team)
: To discontinue a feud, angle, or gimmick suddenly, usually without explanation or due to a lack of fan interest.〔
: A management employee, often a former wrestler, who helps wrestlers set up matches, plans storylines, and relays instructions from the bookers. Often acts as a liaison between wrestlers and higher-level management. Referred to as "producers" by WWE and sometimes by other companies. Sometimes they help train and teach younger active wrestlers and give criticism.
: A fictional storyline. An angle usually begins when one wrestler attacks another (physically or verbally), which results in revenge.〔 An angle may be as small as a single match or a vendetta that lasts for years. It is not uncommon to see an angle become retconned due to it not getting over with the fans, or if one of the wrestlers currently involved in the angle is fired.
: An old-style professional wrestling magazine that sticks to kayfabe articles.〔 The term refers to the magazines at one time connected to journalist Bill Apter, such as ''Pro Wrestling Illustrated''.〔
