* AscendedFanboy: To name a few, Wrestling/NobuhikoTakada, 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.

* 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 brought 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.

* SpearCounterpart: Both genders do both, but backyard wrestling is considered such to the more private phenomenon of "apartment wrestling" since most of its participants are female. Apartments gained national attention first, despite their more private nature, because Wrestling/TheFabulousMoolah had her students pose for CatFight pictures in apartment rooms for Bill Apter's magazine during the 1970s.

* WhereItAllBegan: [[GimmickMatches Falls count anywhere matches]] ending up in a backyard is a rare but amusing occurrence. Matt and Jeff Hardy explicitly invoked when their TNA feud culminated in "The Final Deletion", a match filmed entirely 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 Wrestling/RobVanDam, got their start in backyard wrestling, but official word from [[Wrestling/{{WCW}} The]] [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} Big]] [[Wrestling/{{ECW}} Three]] is to discourage the practice (due to liability reasons) and 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 Wrestling/MickFoley's "Dude Love" video, where he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caifbOIpdi0 leaped off a roof.]]

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