  • On the bubble (sports) – Can apply to any sport or other entertainment, but often taken to mean either a team that is barely in contention for a post-season berth and needs to either win and/or have the results of other team's games go a certain way for the team to make the post-season; or a player who is in contention for a spot on a team's roster but needs to do certain things to be considered.

Amateur and collegiate wrestling[edit]

Professional wrestling[edit]

  • Preliminary wrestler
    • (I don't know what it means, though I can guess; I'm not a wrestling fan.)
    • (The term is used in WWE § Prior to Titan Sports.+ It wasn't defined there, but as I was copyediting the article, I checked; it has a wikilink, so I linked it. But that link is just a redirect to Job (professional wrestling), which doesn't mention the expression at all! I've been going round and round Portal:Professional wrestling trying to find the right place to mention this, but there's no listing for "terms used and linked in Wikipedia articles but not defined anywhere in Wikipedia". (Until I made one.)
I ran a search for the expression. +It's found in 55 articles including the redirect so named, almost all of them articles about pro wrestlers. Obviously this is a term that needs an article, or at least a clear definition that can be directly linked to. AWB says Job (professional wrestling) has never contained the expression.
I've written this problem up (in less detail) at Wikipedia:Requested articles/Sports § Professional wrestling, and am also linking from there to here. Please {{Ping}} me to discuss. --Thnidu (talk) 00:48, 13 June 2016 (UTC) )
