* NonIndicativeName: His tag team is called the Vaude''villains'', but so far they haven't really done anything heelish (excepting English kicking the shit out of Big Cass because he's a sore loser). Gotch by himself seems to be just an eccentric guy who isn't one for taking things too seriously. Of course, at some indeterminate point in the middle of 2015, they turned face, turning this into something of an ArtifactTitle.

* TheGiant: 7 foot tall, and you "can't teach that." Although, in a subversion of the usual trope, he's far and away the better wrestler of his pairing with Enzo, for what that's worth.

to:

* FastballSpecial: He throws Enzo off the top rope in their finisher the Rocket Launcher. He's also known to bodyslam Enzo on top of opponents.

* FinishingMove: [[MemeticMutation Famous in internet circles]] his finishing move on TheOtherWiki was once listed as "Tag in Cass". His ''actual'' finishing move isn't much different: a FastballSpecial done from the top rope that he and Cass call "Sky's the Limit".

!!! Colin "Big Cass" Cassady (Bill Morrissey) 2012-present

to:

[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/enzo_8302.png]]
* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Carmella, mainly because she's obviously not interested in him at all and he refuses to take the hint. [[AbortedArc The subplot eventually got dropped.]]
* ArchEnemy: Sylvester Lefort, Blake and Murphy, Dash and Dawson…he's had a few.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: One might think that while he was wheelchair-bound, he couldn't do anyone any damage... and yet he was perfectly capable of running over Aiden English's foot.
* BigDamnHeroes: Abruptly [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcICzhl94-4 returned]] after recovering from an injury to come to Big Cass' aid against the Legionnaires.
* BoastfulRap: His current theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYJDjsZH-ic "SAWFT Is a Sin"]], is one of these.
* BullyingADragon: Does this to Mason Ryan. Just a reminder, Mason Ryan is 6'3 and 295 pounds.
* CatchPhrase: ''So many.'' The winner seems to be calling his opponents S-A-W-F-T, SAAAAWFT - although this particular phrase has been handed off to Cass, probably because his delivery of it is almost a meme in itself.
** "How you doin'?"
** "My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bona fide stud. And you can't. Teach. That. And this right here? This is Big Cass, and he's 7 foot tall. And you can't. Teach. That. Bada boom, realest guys in the room! HOW YOU DOIN'?"
*** With Carmella accompanying them, he adds "And this right here? This is Carmella, and she's hot as hell. And you can't. Teach. That." between Cass' introduction and the "Bada boom".
* ChewToy: Enzo's role in tag matches with Big Cass is to take all of the offence from the opponents, and you can be sure that if Enzo & Cass are losing, it's Enzo taking the fall. Fans have begun joking that Enzo's finishing move is "Tag in Big Cass" because of this.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Not so much on the mic or in the ring, but his backstage promos with Cass occasionally run into this. In one promo, Cass takes over the speaking after a short intro by Enzo. For the rest of the promo, Enzo ponders over something Cass said before having an epiphany in the last 20 seconds and insistently trying to get Cass' attention to point out the fact that he understood the joke.
* EpicFail: His actual attempts to wrestle. He has no real moveset, and his offense mostly consists of "get thrown at people by Cass and then run away"... although he has improved marginally to the point where Cass no longer does ''all'' the work.
* {{Expy}}[=/=]SpiritualSuccessor: Enzo's basically a louder, hammier, more ridiculous version of Road Dogg. Introduce self in hammy manner, introduce partner in hammy manner, do so consistently enough that the audience can say your intro with you verbatim, and have the crowd finish off with your catchphrase. It's basically lifted straight out of New Age Outlaws.
* FinishingMove: [[MemeticMutation Famous in internet circles]] his finishing move on TheOtherWiki was once listed as "Tag in Cass". His ''actual'' finishing move isn't much different: a FastballSpecial done from the top rope that he and Cass call "Sky's the Limit".
* HiddenDepths: In one promo during the period when his leg was broken, he rants that a place he'd been to wasn't handicapped-accessible and thus were liable.
* HeelFaceTurn: Turned face solely because everyone in the crowd cheered him for his comical MilesGloriosus nature.
* HotbloodedSideburns: At one point, he sported some huge blond muttonchops.
* InsistentTerminology: More like insistent spelling: He refers to the opposition as soft, spelled "S-A-W-F-T... SAWWWWFT!" Also counts as FunetikAksent.
* {{Joisey}}: His home state.
* {{Keet}}: Dear Lord, the man is ''hyper''.
* LargeHam: ...is pretty much his ''default'' setting.
* LimitedWardrobe: Limited, in that just about everything he wears ''will'' have leopard-print somewhere on it, as did his customised wheelchair. Hell, he's even shaved the design into his ''hair''.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Mean is stretching it (a lawt), but nevertheless, during the month where WWE was promoting the Susan G. Komen foundation, instead of the normal ridiculous designs shaved into the side of his head, he had the Komen ribbon on one side and their slogan (Rise) on the other.
* MeaningfulName: "Amore" is Italian for "love". Given how much he talks about being a stud...
* MilesGloriosus
--> "If me and Cass had a dime for every time we got beat up as a kid, we'd have ''ZERO DIMES!''"
* [[NoIndoorVoice NO INDOOR VOICE]]: Enzo has two volume settings: loud and ''louder.''
* PhraseCatcher: "Shut up, Enzo."
* PluckyComicRelief: Serves the role of bringing lighthearted comedy segments and hilarious promos (even comedy wrestling matches) to NXT. This role of being the humorous breather between other storylines and matches was particularly evident at ''Takeover 2''.
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: He's been pretty sexist in vignettes, though it should be noted that Big Cass immediately called him out for it and Enzo's been portrayed as an idiot every time he does something sexist.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: And you can't. Teach. That.
* PutOnABus: Due to breaking his leg, though he showed up in backstage segments.
* SmallNameBigEgo
--> "My name is Enzo Amore, and I'm a certified G, and a bona fide stud! Bada boom! Realest guy in da room!"
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: He once claimed that he's never had a girlfriend because he 'refuses to commit himself to failure', not because, by his own admission, he treats women like dirt.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: There's a million and one things he can think to say about Wrestling/TheAscension, but the absolute worst he can think of to say, is that they're The Ascension, in reference to their status as THE jobbers of WWE.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Colin Cassady.
* TooDumbToLive: The training vignettes show that he's refusing to take Carmella seriously as a potential superstar, even when she keeps handing him his arse.
** He also refused to accept that Carmella is not interested in him at all, despite all his advances being rebuffed (sometimes violently).
* TruthInTelevision: Actually knew Colin Cassady from his teenage years; they first met on a basketball court in New York City.

2012-
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/colin_7740.png]]
* BlatantLies: He and Enzo made a number of videos about them training Carmella and getting her a tryout, all of which ended with Enzo looking like an idiot. Cass always promised to not post them online (and always did). It took Enzo a while to catch on, but he got there in the end.
* TheBrute [=/=] TheBigGuy
* CatchPhrase: "How you doin'?" and "SAWFT."
** "I'm gonna..." *shakes like he can't get the word out* "SPELL IT OUT FOR YA!"
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: For Enzo.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DuckSeasonRabbitSeason: Pulls one off on Aiden English, though how intentional it was is debatable.
* TheGiant: 7 foot tall, and you "can't teach that." Although, in a subversion of the usual trope, he's far and away the better wrestler of his pairing with Enzo, for what that's worth.
* HiddenDepths: He once got into a sing off with Aiden English...and actually sang really well.
* LargeHam: Not as much as Enzo, but he's still pretty hammy.
* NonIdleRich
* NoSell: Not so much in singles matches, but when he's teaming with Enzo, Cass will pull this.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Sure, he looks like the more sensible one, but he's more than happy to participate in Enzo's weirdness.
* OnlySaneMan: He is this to Enzo.
* PhraseCatcher: "And this right here? This is Big Cass. And he's 7 foot tall, and you can't. Teach. That."
* RomanceOnTheSet: Currently dating Carmella in RealLife (ironic if you remember her character's introduction, which saw Enzo constantly - and unsuccessfully - trying to flirt with Carmella while Cass basically rolled his eyes in the background)
* ShoutOut: During ''NXT Takeover 2'', Big Cass called for the bucket in the same way Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys would call for the table.
* TheStraightMan: Serves as this to Enzo Amore. The fact that someone as hammy as him qualifies shows just how over-the-top Enzo is.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Enzo Amore.
** TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Enzo and Carmella.

** Happened again as Los Matadores. In the fall of 2015, Diego and Fernando turned heel and beat down El Torio before getting put through tables by the Dudley Boyz. None of this was followed up on, as the duo disappeared from TV for months before resurfacing as their original Primo/Epico names, talking up the beauty of Puerto Rico in video packages.

[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/simongotch_bio_20140626_752.png]]
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Just look at his Twitter.
* ArchEnemy: The Lucha Dragons. Later on, BAMF.
* BadassMustache: And don't you forget it.
* BornInTheWrongCentury
* CatchPhrase: "Quite manly", to the point that one has to wonder if he's a bit insecure.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Oh, boy.
* InformedAbility: He calls himself a strongman, although he's actually on the smaller-to-average side as far as wrestler size goes.
* NonIndicativeName: His tag team is called the Vaude''villains'', but so far they haven't really done anything heelish (excepting English kicking the shit out of Big Cass because he's a sore loser). Gotch by himself seems to be just an eccentric guy who isn't one for taking things too seriously. Of course, at some indeterminate point in the middle of 2015, they turned face, turning this into something of an ArtifactTitle.
* [[RatedMForManly Rated QM For Quite Manly]]
* WrestlingDoesntPay: He's a wrestling strongman.

!!! Aiden English (Matt Rehwoldt) 2012-present
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aiden_4679.png]]
* ArchEnemy: The Lucha Dragons.
* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: With his moustache and his plain brown tights with built-in muscle belt, he looks like an old-fashioned vaudeville strongman. In June 2014, humorously and appropriately enough, he ended up tag-teaming with Simon Gotch, a vaudeville strongman wrestler, and their promos and entrance are done in the style of old black and white films. To top it all off, their tag team is called the Vaudevillains.
* BadassMustache
* BerserkButton: He did ''not'' take losing the sing-off to Cassady well.
* EvilLaugh
* HeroicSacrifice: In the Vaudevillains/Lucha Dragons match at Takeover 3, English pushed Gotch out of the way when the Lucha Dragons did a double suicide dive. It looked like a SenselessSacrifice at first because Gotch got pinned within minutes, but it turned out to be a case of DangerouslyGenreSavvy because Gotch wasn't the legal man, a fact that the Vaudevillains successfully used to get a rematch.
* PutOnABus: The Vaudevillains disappeared from the tag team scene for several months, and then returned after Unstoppable.
* RedBaron: "The Artiste" and "The Drama King".
* SoreLoser: Boy howdy.
* WrestlingDoesntPay: He's a stage actor/singer turned wrestler.
