* The Super Smash Bros of Canada's International Wrestling Syndicate are fan boys of Nintendo video games, especially the eight bit ones. [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]]'s promo at a Chikara event stressing that they "upgrade to HD" quickly became {{memetic|mutation}} (even more later when Nintendo actually did "upgrade" to such with the Wii U).

Added DiffLines:

* Negro Navarro of the Lucha Libre Internacional PowerTrio "Los Misioneros de la Muerte" was a fan boy of Black Shadow, and followed in Shadow's footsteps when it came to trying to end the career of Wrestling/ElSanto. Lucha Libre is little different than other forms of pro wrestling when it comes to HeelFaceTurn, however, resulting in Black Shadow himself, along with his TagTeam partner Blue Demon, coming to Santo's side in further confrontations after Los Misioneros de la Muerte almost killed him.

Added DiffLines:

* Wrestling/JimmyJacobs to Wrestling/BruiserBrody, Wrestling/TheBarbarian, [[Wrestling/JohnNord Berserker]] and Wrestling/KevinSullivan. He's even had the pleasure of having his ass handed to him by the latter, but not before taking Sullivan's prized railroad spike. He has the fuzzy boots of Brody and recruited [[Wrestling/BrodieLee a Brody lookalike]] for his Age Of The Fall. And one of his {{red baron}}s was "Barbaric Berserker".

Added DiffLines:

* Wrestling/MontelVontaviousPorter is one to Masahiro Chono, to the point he basically became Chono, while wrestling under a mask in Wrestling Retribution Project. After Nosawa Rongai brought him in New Japan, as a replacement for himself in Kojima gun, Porter became one to that very Wrestling/SatoshiKojima, being the only remaining member of the stable to remain loyal to him when Wrestling/MinoruSuzuki took it over. He set out to beat wrestlers Kojima lost to, such as Wrestling/HiroshiTanahashi and still followed him after succeeding!

* 1900-30s wrestler Ed "Strangler" Lewis didn't actually have a reputation for using any strangleholds and gave himself the name because he was a fanboy of 1890s wrestler Evan "Strangler" Lewis. This was fairly obvious to crowds in the US utterly confused the fans and promoters in France, who mistakenly called his sleeper hold a "strangle hold" despite it being a much safer blood choke that does not actually restrain the airway.

* Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels, a white wrestler, shares his ring name with a black ''Comicbook/{{Blade}}''[=\=]''Comicbook/GhostRider'' villain. ''That'' Christopher Daniels has a SuperVillain identity called Suicide and Christopher Daniels the wrestler has a masked identity called Suicide. Is anymore elaboration needed?

* Sonjay Dutt, Chris Sabin and Wrestling/JayLethal were given a ''Series/{{Jackass}}'' fanboy gimmick in TNA during 2006 to help promote an upcoming ''Jackass'' movie. Unfortunately the fans who had came to see pro wrestling did not find it very endearing. Much better liked was Lethal's fan boy initiations of pro wrestling legends Wrestling/RandySavage and Wrestling/RicFlair.

''That'' Christopher Daniels has a SuperVillain identity called Suicide and Christopher Daniels the wrestler has a masked identity called Suicide. Need anything else be said?
* In Wrestling/{{WCW}}, Jimmy Yang's gimmick was that of a ''Film/TheLastDragon'' fanboy, to the extent that Wrestling/RingOfHonor, and later, Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA Vendetta brought in ''The'' Bruce LeRoy to serve as his manager(in the former) and avenge a loss he suffered to Jimi Mayhem(in the latter).

* The Road Dogg got that name because the unflattering gimmick was that of a Wrestling/JeffJarrett roadie/groupie. He'd eventually follow in Jarrett's footsteps as a wrestling musician, although he preformed rap music for Wrestling/RonKillings and Wrestling/{{Konnan}} rather than continue with country.
