* CatchPhrase: Some wrestlers can keep a crowd engaged for nearly half an hour on nothing but catchphrases alone. Sometimes the crowd almost seems to force a catchphrase on a wrestler. Some wrestlers, like Wrestling/VickieGuerrero only have one catchphrase; some, like [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] have multiple catchphrases but one completely overshadows the rest, while others like Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin have many equally well-known catchphrases. Many wrestlers, such as Wrestling/RonSimmons and Daniel Bryan, are more known for their catchphrase than anything else about them. And then there's [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], a man with so freaking much charisma that literally anything that comes out of his mouth has a 50/50 shot of inspiring the crowd to immediately start chanting it, and then within a week it's on a t-shirt and that line goes into his seemingly endless repertoire of popular catchphrases.

* DiabolusExMachina: The Wrestling/MontrealScrewjob is the most infamous example. The "Wrestling/{{Dusty|Rhodes}} Finish" is probably the most common.

* HotBlooded: The exception here for a long time were the Japanese fans, known for politely sitting with their hands clasped and maybe giving light applause every now and then, unless your were Inoki, Chigusa or something. The wrestlers by consequence tended to {{scream|ingwarrior}} and {{no sell}} more than elsewhere to make up the difference.

* IncomingHam: Any wrestler with entrance music. Bonus points if that music opens with said wrestler's [[CatchPhrase catch phrase]], or some kind of loud sound effect (Steve Austin's easily being the most prominent example).

** The Wrestling/UltimateWarrior is arguably the prime example of this trope. He only has a handful of clean losses on record. Not even Hulk Hogan could stop him (without cheating).

* LargeHam: Mostly the wrestlers, but more than a few of the announcers are guilty of this, especially when dealing with a wrestler or faction they show particular favoritism towards. If a wrestler can't talk, he is often given a manager who can.

* RedemptionPromotion: ''Other'' times, when a Heel does a Heel–Face Turn, they're getting a push.
* ReformedButNotTamed: This happens a lot in DarkerAndEdgier programming where a wrestler who started as a heel will immediately turn into a face due to his popularity with the crowd, but they will still behave the same way they started as a heel. A noticeable example is Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin in the late 90's after Wrestling/BretHart [[FaceHeelDoubleTurn turned heel]] at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 13''. He still gets into fights with the faces and would give anyone a Stunner, no matter who they were.

** The WWF/E and, to a certain extent, WCW, were know for having up until the dawn of the Attitude Era (though a few others popped up afterwards) various wrestlers whose gimmicks were that they worked a second job in their downtime. Examples include: [[Wrestling/MikeRotunda Irwin R. Schyster]], the [[IntimidatingRevenueService wrestling IRS agent]]; the Wrestling/BigBossMan, the wrestling prison guard; [[Wrestling/BrutusBeefcake Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake]], the wrestling barber; The Repo Man, the wrestling, well, repo man; [[Wrestling/{{Kane}} Isaac Yankem]], the wrestling dentist; [[Wrestling/SteveLombardi Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz]], the wrestling baseball player; [[Wrestling/BobHolly Thurman "Sparky" Plugg]], the wrestling racecar driver; among others.
** This can also apply literally in real life. "The audience isn't the marks, '''we're''' the marks" -- old wrestler's joke.

** Some try to make their personas more interesting by incorporating a second job. Sometimes it is real, such as Wrestling/PaulBearer the mortician; sometimes it is just for show, such as Honky Tonk Man; and sometimes the job pays so poorly that they apply for food stamps, like Jesse Neal.
