Nice Hat: Professional Wrestling
  • The Undertaker's entire persona would be a lot less creepy and intimidating if it weren't for his Badass Longcoat and trademark wide-brimmed hat together making him look like a gigantic psychotic Amish gravedigger.
    • Also the bandanas that he wore as Biker Taker. He even color-coded them to an extent— when he was wearing red, he was in full-blown heel mode, while black/dark blue generally were for his face persona, although the rule wasn't absolute.
  • ECW Superfan "Hat Guy" is actually an inversion; his straw hat and loud tourist shirts made him look like he's (as Joel Gertner put it) "still hung over from the Reagan administration."
  • WCW's Buff Bagwell wears that giant top hat during his entrance theme.
  • The Miz after joining with John Morrison.
  • Triple H and occasionally Stephanie McMahon would don berets during the McMahon-Helmsley Era/Faction/Regime/Factime. These days Haitch wears a baseball cap.
  • Along with Shawn Michaels wearing a cowboy hat.
  • No love for JR and the Resistol? Jerry Lawler and his crown? Paul Heyman and his baseball caps?
  • No Randy Savage? For shame!
  • Kurt Angle proudly wears any hat.
  • Sheamus' Celtic crown that he began wearing ever since he became King of the Ring.
  • Billy and Bart Gunn/The Smokin' Gunns with their cowboy hats. The Berserk Button aspect was invoked when the Heavenly Bodies invaded and then made fun of and finally stomped on those hats, prompting a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • John Cena and his many baseball caps, available at WWEShop.com
    • Much more impressive to some when he wore fitted caps (as opposed to the adjustables he wears as "Super Face" Cena) that matched his throwback jerseys.
  • Hillbilly Jim's straw hat, although he can be seen wearing baseball caps these days.
  • Evil Russian Nikolai Volkoff's fur hat, which he later added a small American Flag to after he made his face turn to become an All American Face.
  • Mr Fuji was famous for the bowler hat he wore as a manager until 1993 and which gave him a look that drew comparisons to the character Oddjob from the James Bond movie Goldfinger, played by wrestler/actor Harold Sakata, and, like Oddjob, Fuji also qualifies for Badass in a Nice Suit.
  • The Fabulous Kangaroos wore bush hats.
