The Shield[edit]

Stop undoing / changing The Shield to a past group. We can't view the possibility that Shield is disbanded "again" since Ambrose and Reigns usually aid each other to the battle against The Authority. Til Ambrose and Reigns seperates again we could not say that they've disbanded since they treat each other as "brothers" ever since Seth broke out of the group. That's all. If you have any questions. Lets discuss. But for now leave it as is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Restleddd (talkcontribs) 09:20, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

This template is being changed too much[edit]

It seems that everybody has their own standard of who is placed in what category in the template. Some use a talent's position on WWE's website, while others go on their own intuition based on what is seen on tv. We need to follow WP:V when it comes to this. The instability of this template needs to stop. --wL<speak·check> 06:15, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

There is a discussion going on at the Professional wrestling WikiProject's talk page about what should be done about this template. --wL<speak·check> 04:18, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

The template is now fully protected.[edit]

This template was semi-protected because of edit wars. Unfortunately, that didn't help because those who are edit warring are confirmed. To stop the edit warring and to get some stability to the template, I upgraded the protection to administrators only. --wL<speak·check> 05:45, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Protected edit request on 5 September 2015[edit]

I want to make an edit request pertaining to fixing errors in the unassigned section based on the current personnel's roster names, one in particular Brad Maddox who is known right now as Joshua Kingsley and is not anymore. I want to add as well a new faction to the current main roster's tag team/stables section as Cody Rhodes, currently Stardust, and the Ascension debuted together this past Thursday on Smackdown. I also want to request an edit change for King Barrett back to his original ring name Wade Barrett as he will likely be repackaged come his television return when he was written off of his current story-line with Stardust for time off to film a latest production film for WWE Studios. Wrabbjr902 (talk) 05:57, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

pleaase, stop messing around with the template. Stardust and ascension stable hasnt an article yet, so we cant include it in the template. Also, wwe.com lists barrett as king barrett, so thats his name right now.--HHH Pedrigree (talk) 08:02, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
Your request needs citations to back it up. We can't make any edits that are predictions. If King Barret is what he's known as now, that's what he should be stated as. --wL<speak·check> 19:40, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Planned revert of template[edit]

I propose reverting this edit by Wrabbjr902. Without a source, wrestlers like Christian, Damien Sandow and Hornswoggle were moved from main roster to unassigned personnel, despite them still being listed as "current WWE Superstars" on WWE.com. Likewise, Billie Kay, Blue Pants, Nia Jax and Peyton Royce were listed as female NXT wrestlers despite not appearing as NXT wrestlers on WWE.com. @HHH Pedrigree and Ribbon Salminen: - both of you edited this page recently, would you agree with the revert? starship.paint ~ KO 00:36, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --wL<speak·check> 04:12, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
  • @WikiLeon: - just noticed you reverted the wrong edit (your own) instead of Wrabbjr902's. starship.paint ~ KO 01:08, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
Fixed -wL<speak·check> 19:30, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@HHH Pedrigree, Keith Okamoto, Wrabbjr902, and QuintLight: - let's start talking. But first - we acknowledge the consensus formed by WP:PW at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Professional wrestling#Template:WWE personnel -> Rule 1: Base this template on List of WWE personnel. Rule 2: Verify content from List of WWE personnel from WWE.com, first and foremost. starship.paint ~ KO 09:07, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

I acknowledge the consensus. All HHH and I were doing was reverting the vandalism made by Wrabbjr902 and QuintLight as they appear to go by TV and wrestling dirt sheets on who's should go where. -Keith Okamoto (talk) 15:06, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
I explained it one hundred times. First, Unassigned isn't the section for injuried or inactive wrestlers, like Christian or Colter. Also, Ryder, Emma or Eva Marie have their profiles in the main roster, so they belong to the main roster, no matter they appear in NXT. Also, wrestlers who aren't in the NXT roster they belong to Unassigned. Finaly, WWE.com calls Barrett King Barrett, no matter his Twitter profile. Also, I don't knwo why they delete Dudley last name. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 20:08, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I'd like to make a proposal, @Keith Okamoto, HHH Pedrigree, Wrabbjr902, and QuintLight: per http://www.wwe.com/superstars:

  • Under the Current tab, click Raw. You will see Alex Riley, Bubba Ray Dudley. Chris Jericho, D-Von Dudley, David Otunga, Emma, Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury and Zack Ryder. All wrestlers here are on the Main roster, this takes predecence over NXT.
  • Under the Current tab, click SmackDown You will see Christian, Goldust, Hornswoggle, JBL, King Barrett, Macho Mandow, Rosa Mendes and Tyson Kidd. All wrestlers here are on the Main roster, this takes predecence over NXT.
  • Under the Current tab, click NXT. You will see Eva Marie, who has not appeared under the Raw or SmackDown tabs. She belongs to Developmental roster. You do not see Asuka, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce - so they do not belong to Developmental roster, but to Unassigned.

This follows "Rule 1" and "Rule 2" I stated in my earlier post. List of WWE employees will be updated accordingly with this proposed change. starship.paint ~ KO 13:16, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

But if you click Current and select Divas, Eva Marie is listed as a main roster Diva. I agree thou, at least reflect the changes to those on WWE.com. -Keith Okamoto (talk) 16:39, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Okay let's just leave Eva Marie out of the picture for now. But agree on the rest first? starship.paint ~ KO 01:31, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
Of course, I agree on these terms. -Keith Okamoto (talk) 02:04, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
@HHH Pedrigree:? starship.paint ~ KO 07:32, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
Agree --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 10:35, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Mr. Stradivarius: since the time you unprotected this template, Wrabbjr902, who neglected to participate in discussion despite being pinged, has violated this consensus established above in this section by moving Emma (once, twice, thrice) and Zack Ryder (once, twice) away from the main roster category to Developmental roster, as well as moving Billie Kay and Peyton Royce to the same place despite it being agreed above that they should remain Unassigned. I previously reported this user for edit warring but no punishment was given. Warnings on their talk page are repeatedly removed. Could you please advise on what should be done or where I should take this case too? starship.paint ~ KO 05:27, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

I've blocked their account for two weeks due to the continued failure to discuss their reverts here. If it happens again, the block can be extended further. Also, please note that blocking isn't supposed to be used as a punishment - it is supposed to be used to protected the encyclopedia from disruption. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 05:51, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Unprotected[edit]

I've unprotected this template, as it seems clear that the protection hasn't had the effect of getting all the involved parties to discuss here on the talk page. So instead, I'm going to keep this template on my watchlist, and I will first warn and then block editors who simply revert without discussing their edits. Please be careful to discuss things if there is any doubt over whether a particular edit has consensus or not. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 09:14, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbols indicating injury, suspension, etc.[edit]

I've been thinking whether this template should include symbols indicating that a wrestler is injured, suspended, or et cetera. Here is a list of people who are out: Bella (i), Cena (i), Harper (i), Kidd (i), Neville (i), Orton (i), Rollins (i), Wyatt (i), Konner (s), O'Neil (s), Rose (s). It's quite a long list and I believe that it is necessary to indicate which wrestlers are out on injury or suspension. It's done on the roster lists for NBA, MLB, etc., and it can be done here.
