** The "Air Bourne", a huge Shooting Star Press. He is able to complete a tuck in mid air and get from 25 to 30 feet in mid air, he can do this one legged as shown in a match with Paul Burchill and at Wrestlemania when he did a one legged version off a ladder onto Christian. He is also able to land on his feet if an opponent evades.



* GameBreakingInjury: His various injuries that has put him out action. He dislocated and tore his deltoid ligament in his right ankle in 2008 after landing on it badly. Required shoulder surgery in 2010, so he was written out due to an attack from Wrestling/CMPunk. In 2012 he was in an accident and broke his foot in four places and dislocated it in five other. And this was just days after his second suspension was up. After this he disappeared from TV for 2 1/2 years before he was released in June 2014.
** His foo was pretty much permanently disfigured from this accident too, to the point he ffels like he needs to use marijuana to dull the pain in order to wrestle.

* MrFanservice: One of the reasons Delirious does not like him, once accusing Evan Bourne of being a GorgeousGeorge who slept his way to the top. It made him a hit in Dragon Gate too (being pretty that is, not his sexual escapades)

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Hastily dropped the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/ky/ovw/ovw-h.html OVW Heavyweight Title belt]] to Jay Bradley when WWE dropped its affiliation with the company and took Matt Sydal with them.
** The reason for dropping the Tag Team titles on a house show to Primo and Epico, was due to his second suspension which carried a 60 day suspension period.

* BlackBestFriend: Had this with Wrestling/KofiKingston whom he was Tag Team Champions with, and with Wrestling/MarkHenry. He is close friends with Kofi in real life too.

* BigWordShout: "Peace" before driving his thigh into the face of an opponent seated in the corner. "Lama san!" before a back bridging leg neck submission to an opponent on their back...he apparently learned it from the Dalia lama himself, a noted submission specialist.

* {{Contortionist}}: Claims to be a yoga master with unparalleled flexibility. Unfortunately this mostly relates to his arms and he shares the Super Junior ranks with Kyle O'Reilly, an arm submission specialist.



* JackOfAllStats over 200 moves in his Arsenal. Submissions such as a half Boston crab, armbars and very good at chain wrestling, one of his newer moves is the Namaste Lock, a Muta Lock, since his return to the indies he's used Randy Orton's headlock-back breaker as a signature to set up the shooting star press and in recent matches in Japan he does a feint roundhouse to a kneeling opponent into a spinning close line.

* ShipTease: With Wrestling/GailKim in 2010. After Rosa Mendes had been drafted to Smackdown, Zack Ryder was looking for a new valet, trying to get Gail Kim and Wrestling/AliciaFox to accompany him to the ring. Alicia Fox took a liking to Ryder and tried to help him beat Bourne but Gail came to Evans aid. Helps that Evan Bourne and Gail Kim are also good friends in real life.

* {{Foil}}: To Kenny King and Rhett Titus. While Sydal had become a veteran who went out of his way to help upstarts in ROH who reminded him of himself along the way, King and Titus had become bitter veterans who sought to hold upstarts like they once were down.
