** Strangely, it might be said that there is also a Playboy Curse, because every woman who has done so thus far has either been future endeavoured or just left the company (since most of them attempt to use Playboy to get some mainstream recognition, this isn't exactly mysterious).

** Big Poochie (or Big Lazy) - Nash (nicknamed "Big Sexy" more officially), in his days as a Wrestling/{{WCW}} booker during the [=nWo=] era, wrote himself into a one-man SpotlightStealingSquad. Taken from the appropriate ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode, especially from Homer's suggestion that "when Poochie isn't around, the other characters should look sad and say, 'Where's Poochie?'" which is what many people thought WCW might as well be when he booked.

** For his brief return in 2014, Evolution was re-formed to go against the Shield...and inexplicably, Batista didn't coordinate with HHH and Randy Orton (in black trunks), and came out in all-blue wrestling gear. #Bluetista was trending in ''minutes''.

** Similar to Chris Benoit (above), "You Know Who" and such, given how Wrestling/VinceMcMahon had, for all intents and purposes, completely written him out of WWE history. (And let's not get started on an urban legend that turned into somewhat of a meme. Most IWC members know the one.) However, they are doing a little better including Savage on [=DVDs=] - he appeared on the Best of Saturday Night's Main Event and the Intercontinental Championship sets, and got a three-disc best-of collection called ''Macho Madness'', and he appeared in an online promo for ''Wrestling/WWEAllStars''. Also, Savage is to be inducted in the 2015 WWE [=HoF=] class.

** Swagsuke, due to his look, odd and spastic movements, ConfusionFu in-ring style, and overall "give no fucks" attitude. Despite his having that nickname before his WWE debut, he was called this once or twice in passing on commentary during one of his first few matches in Wrestling/NXT.
