Slam Pop is a pro wrestling aesthetic popular during pro wrestling's Golden age and New Generation eras. The term was coined by designer Steves Peeps in 2023.

History[]

The usage of red, white, and blue ropes in pro boxing is where the Slam Pop style initially got inspiration from. In addition to adding blue ring matting and red, white, and blue rope, Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Federation underwent a rebranding in the 1980s. The company updated its logo to make it resemble chrome more. This chrome motif also begun to appear in pay-per-view logos.

In order to better suit the times, other wrestling companies, like WCW, also adopted this aesthetic. The WWF began incorporating arena fog and Memphis-style logos into its taped shows in the 1990s. With time, the Attitude era's Brutal Industrial look eventually replaced the aesthetic.
