* [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Rudo Tecnico Revolving Door]]: Started as a rudo with the Night Shift (as Ichabod Slayne). Turned tecnico later in 2002. Back to rudo in 2005 (with Gran Akuma), then spent until mid-2013 as a rudo. Though he [[HazyFeelTurn showed signs of turning]] while teaming with Sugar Dunkerton during season 12, it took CHIKARA closing to truly cement his status as a tecnico, as he took a stand against the Titor Conglomerate when no one else would and started the [=#IAmCHIKARA=] movement. This lasted 'til mid-2016, as the {{Brainwashing}} mentioned above turned him rudo yet again.
