* SpecialGuest: Usually once per episode, a noteworthy WWE wrestler would visit the gym, and give advice to the contestants, and perhaps share anecdotes. In Season 5, the guest star usually gave a lecture that's specific to the theme for the week; for example, Wrestling/TheBigShow visited during "technique" week, and emphasized in his speech that even "[[TheGiant big man]]" wrestlers like himself had to have excellent technique, they couldn't only rely on their physicality.

* NonGameplayElimination: Many of the contestants had quit the show for not wanting the job as much as they originally expected. Season 1 had more quitters than actual cuts by the trainers. WordOfGod gave this as the reason why the revival had a lot more experienced indy wrestlers than the original series. Ironically, two of the most experienced veterans in the Season 5 roster were some of the first to go. Matt was a nine year indy veteran and considered a potential winner early on, but was eliminated in episode 2 for utterly failing when given a chance to show off his veteran skills. Michelle claimed to have eleven years of indy experience, but was so out of practice that she performed worse than many of the beginners, and ended up eliminating herself in episode 3, when she decided that being home with her daughter was more important than a WWE career.



* VotedOffTheIsland: Depending on the season, the eliminations were done by the trainers and/or public vote. However...

** In Season 5, when Ariane was asked by Stone Cold what her all-time favorite match was, she replied with ''Melina vs. Alicia Fox''.
-->'''Austin:''' (trying to hold himself from strangling her) "Out of all the matches in the history of this business, ''that'' was your favorite?!"

Added DiffLines:

* MercyKill: Non-fatal example. Rima was eliminated in Season 5 without the need for a bottom three - precisely because she wasn't able to keep up with the contest and it was best to eliminate her early.


Added DiffLines:

** Eventually subverted with Christina who, although she returned to FCW when the show ended and became Women's Champion, was released shortly after it was rebranded into NXT.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Wrestling/TrishStratus definitely. Ryan also showed his mean streak when he was pit against Mickael.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Wrestling/TrishStratus definitely.definitely, and Matt Cross was put up for elimination almost entirely on her suggestion. Ryan also showed his mean streak when he was pit against Mickael.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceMeanAndInBetween: In Season 5 when the trainers were at three, Trish was the Nice - a CoolTeacher who would usually try to encourage the contestants to be creative. Bill of course was the Mean - an incredibly tough DrillSergeantNasty. Booker T was the In-Between - and it was almost lampshaded when he yelled at Ryan "don't take my kindness for weakness".

* BittersweetEnding: Season 5 ended with the fan favourite Andy winning...only to get a stunner from Stone Cold and slap from Vince. He would later get suspended for failing a drug test, and quietly released.
* [[BlackDudeDiesFirst Black Chick Gets Eliminated First]]: Thankfully nobody died on the show but a double subversion came in the first episode of Season 5. Eric seemed like he was going to be eliminated only for Stone Cold to eliminate Ariane instead.
* BreakTheHaughty: Patrick Clark, a Wrestling/{{CZW}} wrestler who was also the first graduate of Maryland Championship Wrestling's academy alongside ROH Top Prospect Lio Rush was eliminated in Season 6 after placing in at the top three weeks in a row for his perceived failure to learn the value of humility. [[note]] Apparently, he learned his lesson, as WWE eventually gave him a contract and he now wrestles in NXT [[/note]]
