Formatting Issue[edit]

I figured with endless Google searching for an answer that I couldn't find, this would be a good place to ask. In my sandbox, I am working on an Ethan Page article. Feel free to help if you like. He went by #AllEgo from what I been seeing in my searches. But when I try to put #AllEgo in the infobox, it wants to turn the # into a number. I tried using the include only or the no include HTML tags but it doesn't achieve the desired result. Any solutions? Thanks. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 21:32, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

{{Hash}} worked. Prefall 21:57, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
Good to know for future reference. Gave you a thanks. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 01:37, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello, I'm YelloChoco44 (talk). I made a few edits to your page, specifically the move list. I have a few comments on your sandbox in general. If there are any moves you don't know the technical name of, send me a link to a video. Also, I couldn't help but notice your David Finlay Jr. page. I suggest you remove you remove or move his picture of the handshake, as it looks sloppy with the in wrestling section. YelloChoco44 (talk) 06:31, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for the edits in my sandbox. If you actually noticed while editing, the picture is not in the actual "In wrestling" section. There is not enough career information yet for it to be where it is in the code. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 04:57, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Clarification on combined reigns list[edit]

There is a wrestler in West Coast Wrestling Connection who currently wrestles under a mask as The Grappler 3. He has also worked under the Eric Baeden. If you look at the WCWC Pacific Northwest Championship, you notice he won the title as both Eric Baden and The Grappler. If a wrestler has been a particular champion under a couple of names/gimmicks, would leave them separate in the combined reigns list or would you put them altogether? Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 05:05, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

together. Like Rocky Maivia/The Rock as IC champion or Christopher Daniels/Suicide as X Division champion.

Requested move[edit]

Project Collab[edit]

It's been a little over a year since we did our last Project Collaboration. In light of Ric Flair's recent health issues, I nominate him to be the latest collab. The time frame is two weeks. I'll be working on it...Feel free to help if you have minute. Nikki311 19:17, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Ric's had health issues recently???!! :(★Trekker (talk) 20:06, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
I'd like to add that I support this nomination for collaboration.★Trekker (talk) 20:10, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes. Depending on what source you read, he is having "tough medical issues", heart issues, is in a medically induced coma, and/or in the ICU. [1], [2]. Nikki311 20:15, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
That's very sad, I hope he recovers.★Trekker (talk) 20:17, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Neville page move[edit]

Surely it's time that Neville's page should be moved from Adrian Neville to Neville (wrestler)? He's been known as Neville for the last two years, and has won the Cruiserweight title under the same ring name. Also, Cesaro and Rusev's page were moved eventually, so why can't Neville's? APM (talk) 13:31, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

He's still Adrian Neville, in-universe, just called by his surname. Not really a name change, just short form. Like how Stan Smith's boss and co-workers call him Smith. InedibleHulk (talk) 03:15, August 18, 2017 (UTC)
You sure about that? Because the analogy to Rusev and Cesaro is pretty spot on. He hasn't been billed as Adrian Neville in two plus years. Even if he's occasssionally called "Adrian" by others during dialogue, that's analogous to Triple H being called "Hunter" as he still is to this day. The article is still at Triple H. oknazevad (talk) 20:04, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, they're still absolutely ring-named Alexander and Antonio. Scotty 2 Hotty is still Scott Taylor and Charlotte is still Charlotte Flair Naomi is still Naomi Knight. But since the other article titles have changed, I guess this one should, too. Not because it's right, but because it's normal. InedibleHulk (talk) 22:56, August 18, 2017 (UTC)
I see Charlotte (wrestler) went the other way around last October. InedibleHulk (talk) 23:15, August 18, 2017 (UTC)
I strongly disagree with treating every article the same, in Charlotte and Natalya case they are from wrestling families and their last names are relevant to who they are, it also avoid unnessesary disambiguation.★Trekker (talk) 23:27, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
Using full names avoids the disambiguator in every case. But yeah, "Neidhart" and "Flair" are more prestigious than "Knight", even though the Knights have far more members. Don't let me stop anyone from doing anything. InedibleHulk (talk) 00:49, August 19, 2017 (UTC)
I don't really understand what your comment is implying with the link there.★Trekker (talk) 01:32, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
No implication at all. Just saying a lot of wrestlers are named Knight. A fun fact, not a point; first sentence was a point. InedibleHulk (talk) 21:08, August 19, 2017 (UTC)

I would support a move. Same case as antonio cesaro and alexander rusev.--HHH Pedrigree (talk) 10:04, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

I'd also support a move. I get what Hulk is saying, but I'm not sure these are even their kayfabe names anymore. Natalya and Charlotte had their surnames thrown around occasionally, these guys had their names dropped shortly after developmental and were never mentioned again. Names like "Naomi Knight" end up being too obscure to use.LM2000 (talk) 10:27, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
Not being mentioned isn't the same as not existing. But existing in another promotion is. Neville will always be Adrian Neville and Pac will always be Benjamin Satterly, but (Adrian) Neville has never been and will never be Pac. Now do what you gotta do, and I'll never mention my certainty on the matter again. InedibleHulk (talk) 21:18, August 19, 2017 (UTC)
