Misc. Projects:

Merging trivia and personal life sections into the main bodies of articles. Also, sourcing trivia and deleting un-notable entries (see [4]/[5])

Add Template:Infobox professional wrestler to wrestler bio pages that don't have it
Add Template:Infobox pro wrestling championship to championship article that don't have it
Add Template:Infobox Wrestling team to tag team and stable articles that don't have it. Consider converting "profile" sections into infoboxes. (see [7], [8])
If not much information is available use Paulley's bio profile model in wrestler bios
Add the {{Pro-wrestling}} template to the talk pages of wrestling articles, and any article edited as part of this project
If the page needs expanding because it is a stub, please add {{prowrestling-stub}} or {{prowrestling-bio-stub}} to the article where appropriate.
Add sources to bios so they are in line with the standards for bios of living persons (see [9])

Proposed moves:

Locating and rewriting articles: There are many articles like this floating about Wikipedia that read "Pro wrestler. now dead. won title once". Clean them up, add the correct categories and stub them (when needed). (see: [19], [20])

Correcting links: Articles look better with footnotes as opposed to embedded citations. Try to convert the later to the former.

Photo requests Many wrestling articles need a photo to improve their quality. A list can be found here: Needed Pro Wrestling Photos and here: Category:Wikipedia requested photographs of professional wrestling performers. A list of pro wrestling images in the public domain is available here:

Verify: King Kong (Emile Czaja), Christopher Daniels, Danny Doring and Roadkill (see [21], [22])
