Re: What does the term being over mean?

If you are getting reactions from the crowd, positive or negative, then you are "over".

Over

Accepted by fans. A face wrestler is considered over when he is being cheered and supported by fans, whereas a heel is considered over when he is booed and hated. The term suggests that the fans are buying into what the wrestler is selling, meaning his character and perceived abilities. Since outcomes of matches are predetermined and participants are not actively competing to win a match, winning a match is referred to as "going over" in the wrestling industry. To lose to another wrestler in a match is referred to as "putting him over." Other ways to put over another wrestler is to convincingly sell his offense, or to give an interview that talks up the main qualities and abilities of another wrestler's character.

Means the crowd actually gives 2 fucks about you, which is only about 35% of the roster.

Re: What does the term being over mean?

What a stupid question.

Being over means getting consistent reaction from the crowds.
