The Secrets of
"W.T.F."

The women in the Pepsi Center match are Lita (here called Vanessa) and Maria.

Jimmy wears a VX shirt, a spoof of DX, which stands for D-Generation X, which in 2009 consists of Triple H and Shawn Michaels.

the Rad Russian - could be a take on the Mad Russian, who turned face later on and became the Happy Russion, or it could refer to any number of Russian wrestlers who have appeared on WWE.

The coach of real wrestling calls his sport "wrasslin'" while the WWE and the boys call their styles of wrestling "wrestling."

Kenny is wearing extra protection on his head so he doesn't need the headgear the other boys don. There's space enough that his nose could be seen (but noses aren't normally seen on the kids), but not his mouth.

W.T.F. is the Wrestling Takedown Federation. Add an o to takedown and you can rearrange the letters to read "Tae Kwon Do," which is in the name of a real W.T.F. - World Tae Kwon Do Federation, or World Taekwondo Federation.

The town bar now has an official name: Skeeter's Bar.

See if Number 37 isn't Richard Heene:

John Wilkes Booth moment - the fired wrestling coach climbs to the top of the amphitheater and aims his rocket at Vince McMahon. He fires, but it goes down as a dud in the boys' wrestling ring.

Signs for an eighth boy wrestler, Rhino, appear, but we never see him.

Kenny's voice can be heard at the end of the episode, when Cartman starts arguing with it. And the same two or three lines are repeated. Matt and Trey are getting lazy with the lines.
