* DeepSouth: From Whiteville, North Carolina, and his Southern work ethic is heavily emphasized as a part of his character, having been part of various redneck/Southern boy tag teams. The latest and already most successful one is called the Mechanics (hinting at a clear willingness to get down and dirty) and their theme song can be best described as a Southern metal anthem.

* CareerEndingInjury: Told to stop wrestling after receiving two serious concussions and now works backstage. He revealed at ''NXT [=TakeOver=]: R Evolution'' that he is officially retiring from wrestling and is instead joining the NXT Announce Team.

* {{Composite|Character}} {{Expy}}: As a black athletic prototypical wrestler, he hearkens back to Shelton Benjamin, but his moveset and intensity is more reminiscent of prime Wrestling/KurtAngle. He also has the legitimate amateur wrestling background to match both men as well. Which makes it all the more fitting he's finally picked up momentum via a tag team with a composity expy of Angle and Benjamin's Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam partner Charlie Haas.

* DeepSouth: From Old Fort, North Carolina; one-half of a the hard-working, dirt and grime, smash-mouth tag team called the Mechanics; a Southern metal anthem called "Southern Proud" for a theme song; yep, he qualifies.

Bull Dempsey, Sylvester Lefort, and Marcus Louis all just left the company
!!! Bull Dempsey (James Smith) [[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bull_2104.png]] * {{Acrofatic}}: After Unstoppable, it became less acro and more fatic, which led to his "[=BullFit=]" gimmick and HeelFaceTurn. * AnimalMotif: As one might expect, BULL! Though in his case it's not done in an overt, cartoonish manner like an El Torito. * AnythingYouCanDoICanDoBetter: Engaged in a non-verbal case of this with Baron Corbin, each trying to outdo the other in the art of swiftly dominating {{jobber}} opponents. Culminated in a no-DQ match with Corbin at ''NXT Takeover: Rival'', which he came out on the losing end of. ** Has been doing a minor one recently when sparring against Tyler Breeze, imitating Breeze's signature method of lying on the top ropes. * AscendedMeme: When the show began airing vignettes concerning his attempts to lose weight, the internet promptly dubbed them "[=BullFit=]" as a play on the "Bullshit!" chants that usually accompany his entrance. This was promptly picked up on, and when he reappeared at the Brooklyn show, his tights actually said "[=BullFit=]" on the back. * BigEater: And it's become a serious issue for him, at least in storyline. * BrooklynRage: Billed from Brooklyn, but he's usually quite a good-tempered guy. * TheBrute: Supposedly an unstoppable freight-train with no need for tactics as a heel. * HeelFaceTurn: After his weight problems began to affect his ring performances, he resolved to lose weight and become a nicer person with his "[=BullFit=]" exercise routine. So far it's working. * IHaveTheHighGround: Though he usually just does diving headbutts. * IncomingHam: BULL! BULL! BULL! * LastOfHisKind: Calls himself the [[RedBaron Last of a Dying Breed]] in reference to old school, smash-mouth style wrestlers. * PhraseCatcher: After Bull's HeelFaceTurn with Bullfit, the audience would start chanting things like "Bullfit's working" or, usually in a match with Wrestling/TylerBreeze, "Bull is Gorgeous!" * TheRival: To Baron Corbin, at first. After several consecutive losses, though, now he's closer to GoddamnedBats territory. * SquashMatch: The buildup to his eventual first battle with Corbin consisted of the two trying to top each other at this.

!!! Sylvester Lefort (Tom La Ruffa) [[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sylvestorlefort_447.png]] * ArchEnemy: Enzo Amore. * CatchPhrase: He's primarily motivated by making "MONAY!". * DirtyCoward * EvilLaugh: His theme starts with one. * ForeignWrestlingHeel: Part of his gimmick with Marcus Louis, as the Legionnaires. * GayParee: Subverted, as he's from Nice. * JerkAss: After losing the Hair vs Hair match to Enzo Amore, [[DirtyCoward he ran off and let Marcus Louis get the penalty instead.]] * LargeHam: And how! * NeverMyFault: He tried to justify leaving Louis to get Lefort's penalty by saying that since Louis accepted the challenge to the match on Lefort's behalf, it was fair that Louis got the penalty, even though he hadn't competed in the match and had tried to intervene on Lefort's behalf. The commentators rightly pointed out that if he'd really felt that way, he could have just not shown up to the match, or officially refused the challenge. * PintSizedPowerhouse: Despite looking like a monster, he's only 5'9'' and weights 170 pounds. Averted, though, in that despite his muscular frame he's never won a match. * PutOnABus: Hasn't been seen since Louis started losing his mind. * TheBusCameBack: Returned after Unstoppable as Jason Jordan's new tag partner, though it didn't work out. * TooDumbToLive: Lampshaded by Renee: He came to the Takeover 2 fallout to challenge a triumphant Enzo Amore and Big Cass to a tag team match in response to their humiliation of Marcus Louis…''by himself''. To his credit, he very quickly realised his mistake (and managed to escape before they could actually attack him). !!! Marcus Louis (Pierre Marceau) [[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marcuslouis_8043.png]] * AxCrazy: In his match against Lefort, Louis seemed to have lost his mind, beating the hell out of Lefort while repeatedly screaming 'You did this to me!' A later promo shows that he's become a mental wreck as a result of losing his hair and being repeatedly publicly humiliated for it. * [[BadassGay Badass]] AmbiguouslyGay: Back in the training center he cut a promo ([[http://video.yandex.ru/users/vswrestling/view/559 seen here]] but probably NSFW) to this effect. Whether he's still gay is unknown, but he was old friends and workout partners with [=LeFort=] (who had an obsession with his clients being attractive). * BaldOfEvil: And not by choice, either. * BerserkButton: His baldness, and the humiliation that followed it. * TheBigGuy: According to his official bio, he's a former rugby player, he was a riot police officer and he also worked in a psychiatric institution. * ButtMonkey: He accompanied Lefort to the Hair vs Hair match, which Lefort lost. However, Lefort ran away, and Enzo and Big Cass decided to give Louis the penalty instead (whether it was for trying to interfere with the match or because he was the closest thing they had to Lefort is unknown). He's now completely bald and has become the butt of many jokes. * ForeignWrestlingHeel: With Lefort, as the Legionnaires. * GayParee: Also subverted; he's from Bordeaux. * [[HeroesLoveDogs Heels Love Dogs]]: If you look at his Twitter, he seems to really like dogs. * HiddenDepths: He loves animals and philosophy. * HumiliationConga: First, his teammate lost a Hair vs Hair match and fled the scene, leaving Louis to get beaten up by the Realest Guys, who then proceeded to throw a bucket of hair-removal cream on him. Then they dragged him out into the ring later on and publicly exposed his bald head so the crowd could mock him. Then he starts wearing a wig, gets mocked for that, and finally turns on Lefort when he knocks the wig off during a match. Then a few weeks later, Tyler Breeze publicly insults and humiliates him and beats him with one move. After that, Louis walked out the front doors of Full Sail and hasn't been seen since. * [[ItsPronouncedTropay It Is Pronounced "Loo-ee"]]: Just as you'd expect of a Frenchman. * PutOnABus: Went missing after Tyler Breeze destroyed his sanity. It was hinted that he was stalking Breeze from afar, but nothing's come of it. ** TheBusCameBack: Returned after Unstoppable in a tag match, though not with Lefort. * SanitySlippage: Louis did ''not'' react well to getting a bucket of hair-removal cream thrown on him. * StalkerWithoutACrush: Has been seen watching Tyler Breeze from afar before Breeze's matches. * WithFriendsLikeThese: He kept teaming with Lefort for a couple of weeks after Takeover 2, even though Lefort ran away and left Louis to take the penalty for him. It ended after Lefort knocked Louis' wig off in the middle of a tag match, and Louis [[TheDogBitesBack beat the hell out of him.]]

* CaptainErsatz: American Alpha (his team with Jason Jordan) appears to be a two-man love letter to Wrestling/KurtAngle, with Gable representing the younger Angle from the Attitude Era—the dorky arrogant guy who's also somehow endearing or funny and yet still dangerous because he can out-grapple anyone at will

* {{Expy}}: Of Wrestling/KurtAngle. He's a short, highly skilled amateur wrestler (and Olympic competitor) who wrestles in a singlet, and backstage is arrogant but with an air of goofiness about him. As the white teammate of black Shelton Benjamin-expy Jason Jordan, he can also be considered one of Charlie Haas for many of the same reasons—which is only fitting as [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Haas and Benjamin]] were first put together under Angle's tutelage. The latter's similarity was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in one promo where Jason Jordan almost called the two of them "The World's Greatest Tag Team" before Gable cut him off and asked him to stop, presumably out of respect for the original team.

* LightIsNotGood / TechnicolorToxin: Her cutesy demeanor, pink hair, and extravagant kimono and ring attire make her appear as a cross between a geisha and a gravure idol, but in the ring she's just as dangerous as any BadassNormal woman you'll see in an anime. This evokes the real-life juxtaposition of these two tropes, which can best be summed up as "bright colors = toxicity in nature". Subverted, though, as she is a face and only turns the venom on those who turn it on her first, so it's a bit more like BewareTheNiceOnes or GoodIsNotNice rather than her being outright evil.
