5 Great WWE Catchphrases

How do you get a wrestler over? You need a clever catchphrase, of course. Unless you are The Miz. The catchphrase "really," works for 15-year-old girls, but not grown men. But if you are a normal man with an ounce of charisma, a catchphrase will go a long way to help get you over with the fans.

Kissing up to Triple H so that you can get microphone time in the first place is also really important. Most wrestlers these days don't have good catchphrases, but looking at some of the greatest stars in history, a catchphrase is necessary to become a super big star. The best thing about being a member of the WWE Universe is that you get to be interactive with the WWE superstars at live events. WWE fans are part of the show. They can make or break superstars. Half of Daniel Bryan's push came as a result of his ridiculous "Yes, Yes, Yes," chant, which allows fans to speak along with the superstar.

The truth is that some of the biggest stars of all-time ended their promos with wicked catchphrases. The fans knew it was coming. They waited, waited, waited and when the time came, they screamed at the top of their lungs along with their favorite superstar. Think of how successful guys like Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, Cody Rhodes and other wrestlers on the verge of breakthroughs would be if they could come up with a fancy little slogan to end their interviews. Click through the slideshow to see some of the best catchphrases from yesteryear.
