* SoBadItsGood: [[invoked]] RD makes it clear whenever necessary that some of the inducted gimmicks and storylines aren't flat-out terrible, and instead fall under this. One of the best examples of this is [[http://www.wrestlecrap.com/inductions/repo-man-he-repossessed-from-deadbeats-how-is-he-a-heel/ the Repo Man.]]
** RD will swear to his dying breath that Doink The Clown, in its original heel form, was a brilliant character and does not classify in any way as Wrestlecrap. The lighter, face version of Doink, along with Dink, however is a different story.

* BanOnPolitics: One of the major rules on the message board is to ''never'' discuss politics or religion, though the rule was temporarily relaxed during the 2008 Presidential Election. That being said, they did re-promote the entry on Donald Trump buying RAW, written in 2013, throughout his presidential campaign and presidency.

* AprilFoolsDay: One year when April Fools Day was on a Friday, RD wrote "inductions" for Wrestling/RicFlair and Wrestling/ChrisBenoit. [[http://www.wrestlecrap.com/inductions/guest-induction-shawn-michaels-vs-kurt-angle/ There was even an "induction"]] for the Wrestling/ShawnMichaels vs. Wrestling/KurtAngle match at [=WrestleMania=] 21 written from the point of view of someone who clearly had next to no idea about wrestling, when actually it's mostly agreed to have been one of the best matches of the event.

* AccentuateTheNegativeAccentuateTheNegative: As expected for a website with "Crap" in its name.



* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the very concept of [=WrestleCrap=] itself, if you can believe it. It was the 2006 Gooker Award winner: "Eddiesploitation." Aside from regretting offering it as a nominee, knowing it'd be the most difficult induction he'd have to write, RD noted that the site's [[TagLine tagline]] is "The Very Worst of Pro Wrestling." And "Eddiesploitation" was ''[[ExactWords just that]]''.

** When the 2004 Raw Diva Search won the Gooker Award, RD noted that his fanbase was primarily males who (presumably) enjoyed women. That didn't stop them from voting the Diva Search as the worst of the year, however, because when you tune into a wrestling show, the first thing you assume you'll see is...well, ''wrestling''.

** After writing an induction on her, RD now uses an image of a happy [[Wrestling/TarynTerrell Tiffany]], former General Manager of WWECW, with the caption "YAY!" to show [[BadNewsInAGoodWay fake enthusiasm or joy]]. This was inspired by her notorious promo in which she cheerily declared the death of Wrestling/{{ECW}} wasn't "a bad thing; in fact, it's a ''good'' thing. No, it's a ''great'' thing!"
** Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon got her own image, as well.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[invoked]] The "Rewriting the Book" columns are usually an example of this. For example, "What if Goldberg had defeated Kevin Nash at Starrcade?" or "What if the Montreal Screwjob never happened?" In universe... well, on website.
