Throughout the seasons of 'Psych' there have been numerous references to, and appearances by, wrestlers and wrestling moves. This is an attempt to draw them together in one place. Arguably the most common is the dynamic duo's frequent use of D-Generation X's catchphrase, "Suck it!".

- Given the physique of one of his speed dating partners (Ocean Bloom) in "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me, Oops He's Dead!", Gus says simply, "I just hope I don't get piledriven."
- While searching 'Lyin' Ryan's' apartment in "Truer Lies", Shawn stumbles across a picture of Ryan and "Koko B. Ware", a fan favorite in the WWE in the 1980s.
- In "Tuesday the 17th," Sean tells Gus that he and Jason are his least-favorite tag team. Clive questions why he didn't choose Iron Sheik and Nikolai Volkoff.
- As the present day section of "Let's Get Hairy" starts, our heroes are settling down to watch the Royal Rumble (which actually takes place in January each year, with this one looking like the 2009 Rumble), each with their own wrestling icon - Gus has JYD, the Junkyard Dog, Sylvester Ritter and Shawn is carrying 'Hacksaw' Jim Duggan. In describing JYD as 'the most electrifying wrestler of his time', Gus taps into a phrase employed about Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
- In "Feet Don't Kill Me Now," Shawn references Jake "The Snake" Roberts as well as Damien, his pet snake he brought to the ring with him.
- In "This Episode Sucks", Shawn tries out the nickname 'Necro Butcher' for Woody.
- When Gus and Shawn are battling for the dagger in "Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger", Gus claims to have a Camel clutch on Shawn, and yells, "Ask him, ref! Ask him!" since this submission maneuver is frequently used a finishing move.
- The blonde muscle for 'The Thin White Duke' - dubbed "Heather Rockrear" by our heroes - is portrayed by Charlotte Flair (Ashley Fliehr) the real-life daughter of wrestling legend Ric Flair. While battling Henry and Woody she employs both Becky Lynch's 'Dis-arm-her' armbar and her own signature 'Figure Eight' leglock.
