* DidntSeeThatComing: Nobody, and we mean ''nobody'' thought he was going to coming away from ''[=WrestleMania=] 32'' with the Intercontinental Title- right up until the very second where he shoved Wrestling/TheMiz off the ladder to grab the belt himself.

--> '''Zack Ryder:''' Earlier this year, probably January or so, I looked myself in the mirror and said this career is not where I want it to be. [[LastDance I had nothing to lose]]; I was on a path to get released. What were they going to do? Fire me? Not put me on TV? I wasn’t on TV anyway. My life was going to change one way or the other. I knew I was either going to get fired or get noticed. '''''[[{{Determinator}} I got]] [[TookALevelInBadass noticed]]'''''.

** Of course, both of these examples are [[{{Irony}} very ironic]] as the [[ZTrueLongIslandStory show]] where he took jabs at his situation got him ''massively'' over, which has resulted in a push as well as a short run as the US Champ. [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor It's also gotten him roped into the storyline with]] Wrestling/{{Kane}} and gotten him {{Kayfabe}} injured to the point where he lost his title. Then again, when he finally did show up on TV again, he was still over.

* BadassLongcoat: Sported one in his entrance to Wrestlemania 32, and he's kept it in a lot of his entrances ever since. He actually sketched the design himself while at his hotel room one night, and his drawing was tailored and brought to life just in time his Wrestlemania match.

* ButtMonkey:
** Zack Ryder's push... right off the stage in a wheelchair
** 2012 hasn't exactly been Zack Ryder's best year. 2013 wasn't much better, being on the wrong end of [[{{Jobber}} squash matches]] and getting ''annihilated'' by Wrestling/{{Ryback}} as an example of what John Cena could expect in their Ambulance Match at ''Payback 2013''.

** On the RAW following Wrestlemania 32, Ryder has an emotional speech about him becoming Intercontinental Champion, and the crowd is totally behind him. Then Wrestling/TheMiz shows up and goads him into a title match which Ryder loses. Then he loses again on a rematch in the following Smackdown. Poor guy can't catch a break.

* DarkHorseVicory: His victory of the Intercontinental Championship at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 32'' was completely unexpected considering his {{Jobber}} status.

* DemotedToExtra: During the last 12 months of the ''ECW'' brand, Ryder was a perennial contender to the ECW Championship, having several standout matches with then ECW Champion Wrestling/{{Christian}}, was given the honor of retiring the last Wrestling/{{ECW}} original Wrestling/TommyDreamer, and he even interfered in the final ECW Championship match. Upon arriving to ''Raw'' in February 2010 up until he started his [=YouTube=] web series and earned himself a dedicated fan following, he didn't display any of that in-ring competence at all. Now it's no longer the case, as after a successful year in 2011, he won the United States Championship, and four years later he was on the main card for ''[=WrestleMania=] 32'' and won the Intercontinental Championship. This was lampshaded by Wrestling/CMPunk during his invasion of WWE Comic-Con during his "Summer of Punk" storyline in 2011, which overlapped with Ryder's rise:
-->'''CM Punk:''' When's Zack Ryder gonna be on televison?
** Then played straight in 2012 as he was quickly shifted down the card.
