* AscendedFanboy: To name a few, Wrestling/CMPunk, the [[Wrestling/JeffHardy Hardy]] [[Wrestling/MattHardy Boyz]], Shannon Moore, Wrestling/BryanDanielson, Mick Foley, Wrestling/EddieGuerrero, Wrestling/NewJack, Wrestling/HiroshiTanahashi, and even the Music/InsaneClownPosse and Creator/HardGay all have their roots in backyard wrestling.
** The "ascended" part comes from them "going legit" and being professionally trained afterwards.

* GenreShift: Sometimes an entire backyard fed "goes legit", such as Wrestling/{{CZW}}, which even had a temporary relationship with the Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance.

* CerebusSyndrome: In 1980s, the big trends in pro wrestling were the cartoonish World Wrestling Federation, the technical wrestling displayed in direct defiance of the WWF and {{camp}} that poked fun at the state of the industry. Backyard antics were a lot less dangerous then, so while there was insistence on being legitimately trained before wrestling professional matches, wrestling in the backyard for fun was seen as okay. Then the 1990s brought the rise of brutal striking and submissions, as mixed martial arts were starting to take off, WCW struck gold with the Wrestlng/NewWorldOrder, ECW brough ultra violence never before seen on national television aired outside Puerto Rico or Japan while the WWF found new "attitude". Backyard bouts became increasingly violent and the stance changed to don't even think of wrestling in a backyard.

Backyard wrestling is an offshoot of ProfessionalWrestling, with one major difference: it's often not done with professionals. Often the creation of a few overenthusiastic wrestling fans and {{Spot Monkey}}s, this sport emphasizes Kayfabe, Big Spots and Garbage Wrestling. Several notable pro wrestlers, including The Hardy Boys and RobVanDam, got their start in backyard wrestling, but official word from [[Wrestling/{{WCW}} The]] [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} Big]] [[Wrestling/{{ECW}} Three]] is out to discourage the practice (due to liability reasons) and they will not recognize tapes of backyard wrestling as training.

The whole phenonomenon gained popularity during the Monday Night Wars and was due in no small part to MickFoley's "Dude Love" video, where he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caifbOIpdi0 leaped off a roof.]]

* IJustWantToBeBadass: Generally how one gets into backyard wrestling is from watching WWE on TV and being inspired by the whole thing. Backyarders may or may not be interested in "going pro" for some may just want the experience of wrestling without actually choosing it as a profession.

In particular, CM Punk's departure from backyard wrestling ended up stopping him and his brother from being on speaking terms. Many former backyard wrestlers go so far as to become trainers specifically to help stop other aspiring professional wrestlers from doing backyard stuff.



* SpecialEffectsFailure: Justified since backyard leagues rarely have the money for impressive shows, and most of them have only Windows Movie Maker to work with.

* FollowTheLeader: A sad amount of gimmicks and storylines are recycled from things Wrestling/{{WWE}}, {{WCW}} and {{TNA}} did before. They also tend to follow trends of the larger promotions. Garbage tending to die down in the yards if there have not been any major garbage matches on TV and picking back up when they are, for example
