Trash Talking is a form of boast or insult commonly heard in competitive situations in Lords of Pain Wrestling (LPW). It is often used to intimidate the opposition, but can also be used in a humorous spirit. Trash-talk is often characterized by hyperbolic, figurative language, e.g., "I have poopers that can put up a tougher fight than you!" Puns and other wordplay are commonly used.
In LPW, Trash Talking threads often accomodate the Promo and Voting thread. While the P&V portion is occuring, and/or while the shows are being crafted by the staff, the Trash Talking thread for each show may be used to encourage e-wrestlers to post additional promos and converse in and out of character. Often times, these trash-talking segments can instigate or build feuds which may result in a future match.
