* Wrestling/TommyDreamer was a fanboy of the Puerto Rican version of the World Wrestling Council, as well as it's rival IWA PR and IWA PR's predecessor IWA Japan. He missed is chance to work for WWC and IWA Japan during his first trip through Puerto Rico but finally got his in the former during 2010, when he showed up during the thirty seventh Aniversario tour to gush about all his favorite wrestlers who worked there before him, before he got beat up by Black Pain, then showed up the next night of the tour again before being taken out by [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Shelton Benjamin.]] ECW portrayed him in a much more flattering light in his feud with one of his IWA Japan idols Wrestling/MickFoley, though it also showed him being more ignorant than he really was in order to make him look like that much more of a Foley fan.

* Wrestling/EddieKingston is a huge fan of Tommy Dreamer. His ArchNemesis Wrestling/ChrisHero and Hero's TagTeam partner Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli purposefully crashed Wrestling/{{Chikara}}'s eighth anniversary show in order to deprive Kingston a chance to wrestle Dreamer.
* In spite of his Jujitsu gimmick, which would seemingly put them at odds, Kyle O'Reilly of reDRagon is a huge Wrestling/KazushiSakuraba fanboy, as revealed during Wrestling/RingOfHonor's talent exchange with Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling. He frequently forget all about Sakuraba's partner, Gedo, when happily telling everyone who would listen Sakuraba was challenging him and Fish for ROH's TagTeam Title belts.

* Matt Taven is a fan boy of Wrestling/HiroshiTanahashi, openly admitting that he thinks Tanahashi is cooler than any stablemates in The Kingdom. In his own words it also drove him to stay up at night wondering why Tanahashi chose Michael Elgin as a TagTeam partner, as he would rant about while on the shelf with an injury.

* 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.
