* CardCarryingVillain: Lx-Tim is a total scumbag, and he knows it. After winning the XWA Supreme Championship at If You Want Blood, he lapped up boos and chants of "WE ALL HATE YOU!" like there was no tomorrow.

** In one instance, A.J. Morales had a backstage interview conducted by a character played outside XWA by the same handler.

* HurricaneKick: Basically what A.J. Morales's Diamond Killer finisher, formerly known as Kliq Kliq Boom, amounts to. It's even been represented with a GIF of the move in one of his appearances in another e-fed.

** Before that, shortly after A.J. Morales's Hardcore Championship victory over Kryptops, a squad of Las Vegas riot cops swarmed the area of the fight and attacked everyone in sight, including the cameramen.

* BattleCouple: Emery Layton and A.J. Morales developed this dynamic over time. Apart from being a tag team outside XWA, they were two-thirds of Team XWA in Legends 2017’s battle for control of the company, and they were the only two champions to defend their respective titles at XWA and the City of the Island Hills a few months later

* BattleCouple: Emery Layton and A.J. Morales developed this dynamic over time. Apart from being a tag team outside XWA, they were frequently fought side-by-side against the Survivors, including as two-thirds of Team XWA in the trios match at Legends 2017’s battle 2017 for control of the company, and they were the only two champions to defend their respective titles at XWA and the City of the Island Hills a few months laterlater.



* ChaseScene: What the Hardcore Championship at City of the Island Hills turned into. Basically, the Lynx exploited the 24/7 rule and jumped A.J. Morales during an interview to win the title. But A.J. was dead set on making sure the live crowd wouldn't be watching the whole thing on a screen, so with an assist from Hyphy Machinery, A.J. stole the belt and baited the Lynx into chasing[=/=]fighting him all the way out to ringside.



*** Since his 2018 run as a returning legend began, Dan has continued to wear Rated X shirts and colors to the ring, but as an homage to the group rather than an attempt to revive them once again.



* DinerBrawl: A.J. Morales has had two of these as Hardcore Championship title defenses. The first, a surprise Hardcore 24/7 defense, happened in an Italian restaurant against Jake Rogers, while the second was a Starbucks Street Fight against Annie Zellor, held as part of an episode of ''Massacre''.



* IronicEcho: At the first ''Massacre'' of 2017, Diamond Jack Sabbath kicked Amy Taylor in the head and told her "Stay out of my house." At Legends at the end of that year, Taylor gave that line right back to him as security forcibly dragged him out of XWA forever.



* PoliceBrutality: Since Legends 2017, Smith Jones is rarely seen without being flanked by his two personal riot cops, Goldstein and O'Brien, who are more than willing to use this to help him stay the Television Champion.



** As part of the Survivors in 2017, Sabbath has essentially become a walking, living version of this trope. This was especially obvious at District XWA from his response to the ReasonYouSuckSpeech A.J. Morales gave him.

Morales gave him.him, but it came to a head at Legends, where, after being pinned, and thereby forced to leave the company, he refused to accept it, began throwing a tantrum, and had to be dragged away from ringside kicking and screaming.


Added DiffLines:

* WrestlingDoesntPay: Downplayed with Hyphy Machinery. Their gimmick comes from the fact that they run an auto shop in Oakland on top of being wrestlers, but they started the business when they were in high school and make about equal amounts of money from both jobs.

* AllAmericanFace: Jake Rogers, an Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics turned professional wrestler who names his finishers after Constitutional amendments and brings his pet bald eagle to the ring.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Emery Layton is easily one of the most eccentric wrestlers in XWA, but within six months of her debut at Legends 2016, she became a champion in multiple promotions at the same time.

Added DiffLines:

** A.J. Morales repeatedly referencing his “squad” and Hyphy Machinery referencing getting paid to customize a Lamborghini, both of which were scattered throughout 2017, culminated in Morales’s Film/SuicideSquad-themed entrance atop a purple Lamborghini at Legends that year.

* IHaveManyNames: Played for laughs with Emery Layton. While 'The Worst of the Pavees' and 'The Lethal Lackeen' remain her usual go-to nicknames, the frankly absurd growing list of names she continues to attribute to herself (and have attributed to her by others) makes this trope valid. Highlights include 'the Big Cheese', 'the Bee's Knees' and 'Booty Strong Style'.

* ButtMonkey: Pretty much all the jobbers, as per usual for wrestling, but special mention goes out to Cortez Columbus, who had a reputation of horrible things happening to him during his matches even ''before'' his XWA debut, which ended with Raine throwing him off the deck of a boat and into the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Of course, Columbus is also an egomaniac and psychotic racist, so nobody really minds all the abuse he inevitably takes.

* CasinoEpisode: Kryptops and A.J. Morales's battle over the Hardcore Championship, which took place on the casino floor of the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.



** Kryptops claims to be the face of a global demonic occult.



* DynamicEntry: After Hyphy Machinery put Kryptops through a blackjack table, A.J. Morales made his challenge for the Hardcore Championship known by ''riding into the casino on a motorcycle and jumping off it to tackle Kryptops back to the ground again.''



* LatinLover: A.J. Morales has been known to refer to himself as a sexy luchador, and he's not wrong.



* LoopholeAbuse: Kryptops, faced with a four-way title defense of the Hardcore Championship at Fool's Gold, exploited the title's 24/7 rule by removing himself from the match before it began, waiting for the other three combatants to beat each other down, then re-inserting himself into the match and scoring a pinfall to retain it.



* MrFanservice: A.J. Morales has been known to refer to himself as a sexy luchador, and he's not wrong.



* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Cortez Columbus is a Castillan supremacist who thinks of all other Latinos as peasants and once called the A.J. Morales a "mongrel" for being mixed-race.

** Early Adam Fenric will would often rub his hands together uncomfortably and look around nervously if he's he was in a situation he isn't wasn't quite ready for.for. Post-Fenrics-breakup, he's much colder and more stoic now.
** Emery Layton ''really'' want you to know what she means. ''Know what I mean?'' ''Know what I'm saying?''

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Implied with Adam Fenric. His constant pushy attitude towards Emery Layton and insistence on her learning to plan for matches better could be interpreted as a response to his father paralysing himself due to lack of planning for his opponent...he's just not very good at putting it across.


Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: Emery Layton's match with a wrestler in Mexico called "El Spooko Grande", who wrestled with a sheet over him, is mentioned once but never brought up again on-screen, but due to the events of whatever occurred in the match, Emery regards him (or her) as her 'first arch-nemesis'.

* PopCulturalOsmosisFailure: Emery Layton had never seen the Franchise/StarWars Original Trilogy until A.J. Morales showed it to her. Even then, between them watching ''Film/EmpireStrikesBack'' and ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', she told him she couldn't wait for "sword fella to run off with the princess."
