* BullyingADragon[=/=]TooDumbToLive: To Wrestling/TheUndertaker, of course. In early 2003, Wrestling/TheBigShow had been setting up crates in the ring week after week on ''[=SmackDown!=]'' for Taker. On the February 6th show, Taker opened the crate and out came Brother Love. BL tried to get Taker to "remember the lessons of love" and to get him to see Big Show's side of things.

!!! [[Wrestling/JimCornette James E. "Jim" Cornette]] (James Mark "Jim" Cornette) 1993-2005
!!! Uncle Zebekiah/Zeb Coulter 1994-1997, 2013-
* CatchPhrase: Now I want you all to stand, place your hand over your heart and in a loud clear voice say "WE THE PEOPLE".
* ConflictKiller: Yeah I'm sure you'd all like to see Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro fight one another but that will have to wait, they've got bigger fish to fry like Los Matadores Engañoso.
* EvilForeigner: You all know the UK would be a better place if Real Americans were running it.
* FragileSpeedster: In his younger days...where he most definitely was not Dutch!
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: It's called tough love, it helped Jack Swagger win, reminded him what he's made of.
* NoTrueScotsman: A real American would admit there is some sense to what Zeb Coulter has to say.
* PatrioticFervor: Although instead of the standard Red-White-Blue he opts for the black "Don't Tread On Me" flag.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: There is a problem with this country and Real Americans know it: Mexicans. Furthermore, Real Americans know how to fix it and we're starting with Alberto Del Rio.
* SkywardScream: If you had to endure the trials that Zeb Coulter and real Americans like him regularly go through you'd occasionally have to vent too.
* YouLookFamiliar: Uncle who, Blu Brother what? That clearly is not the same guy who managed the Real Americans. He definitely is not Dutch Mantel from WWC either, even though we sent our Superstars there for cross promotion as late as 2005.

!!! AW (Brian Bary Jossie) 2009-2010, 2012
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abrahamwashington_6053.jpg]]
* BaldOfEvil
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Started out in WWE's developmental program FCW as Abraham Saddam Washington, a {{Heel}} {{Parody}} of President BarackObama, complete with his Secret Service stable of Agent D (Derrick Bateman), Agent T (Tevita "Donny Marlow"/"Camacho" Fifita) and Agent C (Matthew "Joseph Canterbury" Walsh). This gimmick was eventually abandoned.
* FunWithAcronyms: AW stands for All Worlds Promotion. However it could also be his former ringname, [[MeaningfulName Abraham Washington.]]
* LargeHam[=/=]HammyHerald: Not helped by the fact that he is mic'd up while at ringside for his stable's matches.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: As Abraham Washington in FCW, he was an [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Unmodified]] President {{Jerkass}}.
* RapeAsComedy: Made an off-color reference to the Kobe Bryant rape case from several years ago. He's since been [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor released from WWE.]] It didn't help that he wasn't so apologetic backstage about it, the following weeks, which lead to his release.
** The internet, being what it is, quickly raised a clip from a ''Smackdown'' episode where [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiK3Gsk1x_g Big Show made the same joke.]] It's believed he was really fired for referring to Linda's second race for the senate with an excuse thrown up for plausible dependability.
** And WWE fans, being what they are, started chanting "Kobe Bryant" during the Wrestling/PrimeTimePlayers' ''Wrestling/{{SummerSlam}} 2012'' match.
* TalkShowWithFists: "The Abraham Washington Show"
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Tony Atlas
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: A wrestler, although mainly in developmental, a host/interviewer for ''The Abraham Washington Show'' and manager.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He was first Primo's and Epico's manager, but turned on them for the Prime Time Players during an number one contenders match for the tag titles (which Primo & Epico had to be a part of since they lost their rematch clause after it expired after thirty days due to AW never telling them when to use it.)

!!! Armando Alejandro Estrada (Hazem Ali) 2006-2008, 2011
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/armandoalejandroestrada_2176.jpg]]
* CarnivalOfKillers: Sent many people after [[{{Jobber}} Colin Delaney]] when he was in [=WWECW=].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In OVW, he was billed as "Osama" and did an Arab, anti-American gimmick.
* {{Fanboy}}: He said he grew up as one of Ric Flair but was bent on proving that he was obsolete by the time he made it to the WWE. Significantly, he debuted by having the debuting Umaga attack Flair.
* ForeignWrestlingHeel
* FullNameBasis[=/=]SayMyName: "Armando Alejandro ESSSTRADA!", complete with TrrrillingRrrs.
* HammyHerald
* NiceHat
* SmokingIsCool: Or rather, cigars are cool. Nobody actually smoked them, at least not on screen.

!!! Wrestling/{{Hornswoggle}} (Dylan Postl) 2006-

!!! Shaniqua (Linda Miles) 2002-2004
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shaniquawwe_8334.jpg]]
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Teased with Benoit.
* AmazonianBeauty: She was considered ugly by some but most, especially the wrestlers she managed and Wrestling/{{Tazz}}, thought she was fine.
* {{Dominatrix}}: While managing the Bashams, she even had a whip (but not of the bullwhip variety).
* TheGiant: Though she's most known for managing Shelton Benjamin and the Basham Bros this was how she was in the ring when she started on ''[=SmackDown=]'' and was beating up Wrestling/TorrieWilson, [[Characters/WWEDivas Dawn Marie, Nidia]] and Scotty 2 Hotty. Turned around on her against Wrestling/{{Rikishi}}.
* StatuesqueStunner: She was the tallest woman on Smackdown and was the second tallest woman to be on the main roster after Nicole Bass.
* VoodooShark: She was "mistaken" for Shelton Benjamin, attacked by Bradshaw and removed from WWE television. The logical conclusion was to sell the injury she got even though WWE really took her off to get a boob job. When she returned WWE insisted on drawing attention to them by claiming it was due to swelling caused by Bradshaw's attack, which was so unconvincing it killed all the heat fans gave to the APA/Basham feud and lead to Shaniqua's release not long after. Worse, the increase wasn't as drastic as others in the past, like General Manager Stephanie [=McMahon=]'s!
* WeUsedToBeFriends: To Shelton Benjamin when she moved on to the Bashams and he was in the world's greatest tag team and Jackie Gayda, who betrayed her for Ivory and Molly Holly.
* WeaponOfChoice: The "Magic Stick"

!!! Ranjin Singh (David Kapoor) 2007-2011
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ranjinsingh_9530.jpg]]
* NonActionGuy: He lost an arm-wrestling match to ''Hornswoggle!''
* {{Omniglot}}: Speaks both Punjabi and English
* PutOnABus: After Khali [[FaceHeelTurn attacked him]] and sided with Mahal, he disappeared off TV, and even after Khali turned {{face}} again, he hasn't returned. One of the reasons is that Singh is part of the creative staff.
* TranslatorBuddy: Since Khali's English isn't the best, and his speech is [[TheUnintelligible muddled]], Ranjin was there to translate for him
* UnrelatedBrothers: To The Great Khali.
** [[{{Kayfabe}} Wrestling Family]]: The brother in law to Jinder Mahal.

[[folder: Reality Era 2014-]]
!! Lana (Catherine Joy "CJ" Perry) 2014
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lanawwe_9146.png]]
* BilingualBonus: Cuts promos in both Russian and English.
* BlondeRepublicanSexKitten: Implied.
* DistaffCounterpart: Is remarkably like a female Paul Heyman. She speaks rather similarly about Alexander Rusev the way Heyman does about Brock Lesnar - they are both non action managers for big brutish powerhouses.
* {{Expy}}: She clearly takes a lot of inspiration from Ludmilla Drago, Ivan Drago's wife in ''Rocky IV'' played by Brigitte Nielsen, both in appearance (icy blond hair kept away from the face,) and demeanor (does most of the speaking for Rusev.) Since she always starts her speech with the Russian equivalent of "Excuse Me!" (or "Attention!" but the same idea,) there's also a little bit of Vickie Guerrero thrown in as well.
* FemmeFatale: Not directly since she's not a wrestler herself. But she is in charge of someone who ''can'' eff you up.
* ForeignWrestlingHeel: She's a Russian manager for the Bulgiarian Rusev, who does whatever she says.
* GratuitousRussian: Well, ''duh.''
* PhraseCatcher: "What?" from the audience, as she usually starts off speaking in Russian, which [[CaptainObvious most of the audience doesn't understand.]] Oddly enough, though, they keep shouting it even when she's speaking English,[[Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin as they have for years.]]
* RedBaron: Called the "Ravishing Russian".
* TrrrillingRrrs
* WomanInBlack: She occasionally wears other colours but is most often in black business suits.
