* Wrestling/MickFoley Mankind's persona went from deranged psychopath to Adorkable in the late 90s. On one hand, he'd shoot off dumb puns and looked awkward and out of place, especially with his physique. But on the other, his determination to succeed and moments like Mr. Socko's funny debut endeared him not only in kayfabe to D-Generation X and [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], but in real life as well, not to mention the audience at large. It doesn't hurt that [[TheWoobie his dorky persona was an amazing contrast to the incredibly punishing bumps he took throughout his career.]]
* This trope is part of [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]]'s massive appeal. He's not edgy or larger than life like other wrestlers, and he wasn't snappy on the mic like Wrestling/JohnCena, but he's more of an {{Everyman}} who just happens to have excellent skills. This trope was exploited during his brief "chick magnet" gimmick with the Wrestling/BellaTwins.
* Wrestling/XavierWoods is constantly happy and loves being in the ring. And he has his somewhat cheesy smile.
* ''Wrestling/{{Bayley}}.'' Between her [[{{Squee}} gushing to beloved Superstars]], [[CuddleBug love of hugs]] and sheer excitement at just ''being there,'' she has this trope written all over her.
* Wrestling/{{Emma}}, in all her [[ICantDance awkward-dancing glory]], actually had the trope name invoked for her by announcers. This, of course, was before her FaceHeelTurn (after her move to the main roster didn't pan out).
