That is a near-perfect album cover. 
 

 

 

It takes about 45 minutes or so for the pro wrestling connection to become apparent...but once it does, Holy Moley!

Puscifer latest album's aesthetic is all lucha influenced. But already in the previous one, you had this little gem :

 

 

(no idea why some pro-wrestling promotion never got Maynard involved. Ok he's more an MMA guy, but stil...)

While we're on the subject of music, I just noticed that King Crimson's two dates in Atlanta for their upcoming fall tour are at Center Stage.

Corey Graves' name when he was a wee lad toiling on the Pittsburgh indy scene was Sterling James Keenan, so I'm always holding out hope.

There was a show on Cinemax last year, Quarry, that had a 2nd episode entitled "Figure Four". The show is set in Memphis in 1972, and the pivotal scene of the episode takes place during a wrestling card.

Maybe it's been mentionned before, in Tim Burton's Beetlejuice, when Geena Davis & Alec Baldwin try to scare off Catherine O'Hara dressed off as ghosts (well they are, actually), she's alseep and there's some pro-wrestling on the TV, which she switches off without looking as the ghosts. I couldn't recognize the faces and I think I heard spanish, so it may have been lucha libre (and hey, it's Tim Burton, he's an weirdo so he would know about lucha libre in the 80's, right ?). Not positive about it though.

Wouldn't an extensive "random pro-wrestling appearance in movies/TV series" thread would be fun ? (yeah, it's kinda this one already, I know)

Not sure if this counts but I just found out/realized that big mechanic Indiana Jones is fighting in Raiders of the Lost Ark is played by Pat Roach.

Roach is actually the only person besides Harrison Ford to be in the first 3 Indy movies, though I think his part in Last Crusade is mostly cut.

Okay, reading about him now and Pat Roach actually had an amazing film career. Aside from the Indiana Jones series he also worked for Stanley Kubrick and George Lucas and was a part of several other legendary series (Bond, Titans, Conan, Robin Hood). He did alright.

Wrestling in movies:
 

Pay It Forward

 

Haley Joel Osment watches a WCW Monday Nitro match. I believe there are also WCW and WWF action figures and/or posters elsewhere in the movie.

Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi

"The Undertaker" (Brian Lee) and Crush randomly appear in this Indian Bollywood movie.
 

Credit goes to MoS:

 

Massively popular and well-known, "Undertaker" even appeared in a Bollywood movie where he was a pro wrestler and an evil henchman. Brian Lee played him, and he had a wrestling "match" with Crush, who was uncredited. (Wrestling trivia - Undertaker won the match by killing Crush and putting him in the casket)

 I think "on Morrissey" is kind of an unusual context for "Keiji Mutoh"

There is a song called 'me and Stephen hawking' by manic Street Preachers a band I am quite fond of as you may be able to tell by my username.

In this song it has the line " 100,000 watched giant haystacks in a Bombay fight"

In a cricket segment called polite enquiries, wk12 was mentioned in a question, the two hosts looked baffeled and called njpwworld "some channel nobody has heard of"
