a fall or hit that knocks the wrestler to the mat. Valets, managers and other non-wrestlers around the ring during a match often "take bumps" to advance the angle; for example, if one wrestler slams his opponent's valet to the mat, the opponent will then "seek revenge" at the next match.
The impact a wrestler takes when falling down to sell a move. Bumps come in several forms, from a simple flat back bump to sell a series of punches, to a flipping bump to sell a snapmare, or a front bump to sell a Guerrilla press.
In professional wrestling, a bump occurs whenever a wrestler hits the mat or the arena floor after receiving a move from his/her opponent. It can also refer to hitting the floor as a result of a missed aerial move. Every wrestler is trained to take bumps while avoiding injury, though they are not always successful in emerging unhurt.
A player is permitted to ride off another to spoil his shot or to remove him from the play. The angle of contact must be no more than 45 degrees. The faster the pony travels the smaller the angle must be. A good bump can shake discs and dentures loose.

Bumping a discussion thread refers to the act of adding a comment to the thread primarily with the primary intent of increasing visibility by bringing the thread to the top of the forum page (which are sorted by the date of the most recent post).
(vt, Internet slang) to make a meaningless reply to a post so that the original post moves to the top of the forum. For example, if you ask a question, and nobody answers it, you can "bump" your post by adding a meaningless reply such as "Bump!" or "Nobody knows the answer?" Bumping is usually frowned upon, but is acceptable in some cases.
In shock absorbers, a bump adjustment is a change to the dampening of the shock on the compression stroke. As a car passes over a bump on the track, each wheel assembly rises up to pass over it. Without compression dampening, the inertia of the wheel assembly would cause it to continue to rise after the bump until the spring finally overcomes the inertia and pushes the wheel back down. Since a tire can't do any work while in the air, bump dampening stops the upward inertia and allows the tire to stay in constant contact with the pavement. Bump adjustments can also affect how the weight of the car shifts around during braking, acceleration and cornering.
In unionised organisations, be they private or public sector, "bumping" means a re-assignment of jobs on the basis of seniority. As an example, if a job becomes vacant, more than one person may be re-assigned to different tasks or ranks on the basis of who has worked for the organisation longer. As the next lower person assumes the duties of the person who has vacated his or her job, now the job of the replacement person likewise becomes vacant and must thus be filled by the next person with the appropriate seniority level.

A bump is a feature of rowing at Oxford and Cambridge. Due to the narrowness of the of the River Thames at Oxford and the River Cam at Cambridge, when rowing eights are racing there is a staggered start since they cannot row abreast. Instead, eights must aim to catch up with and "bump" the eight in front.

When two sounds are cut together it is possible that the background sounds will not match exactly. The effect of the different sounds cut together is called a bump. The tasks of "dialogue splitting" and "mixing" are designed to smooth out these bumps and end up with one seamless soundtrack.
