These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Designated Hero / Draco in Leather Pants: Bully Ray is a violent sadist who will relentlessly pursue anyone he feels has wronged him and isn't even above putting women through tables. Even as a face, the only defining quality that sets him apart from when he's a heel is his choice of targets and causes and his interaction with fans. Yet because of how good he is at his work he's managed to achieve too-cool-to-hate status over the years, joining such luminaries as Triple H (pre-The Authority), CM Punk and Edge. However, his case is less offending than most cases of either trope in wrestling because he is openly self-aware about who he is, plus his moments of altruism seem to be genuinely motivated by his respect for the business.
Growing the Beard: Bully Ray rededicating himself physically, getting into tremendous shape and emerging as a main player (as in, THE Big Bad) in TNA.
Even his introduction fits this trope in comparison to the rest of his career as the Bubba Ray Dudley/Brother Ray/Bully Ray character. Whereas in older times he had trouble saying his name, nowadays he goes out of his way whenever he gets the chance to make sure everyone knows who he is.
Hilarious in Hindsight: The Dudleys (Dudley and Little Snot, w/Big Dick) debuted in a winning effort against the Pitbulls (#1 and #2) at ECW Hardcore Heaven, July 1, 1995, after Raven dragged Stevie Richards and Beulah McGillicutty back to the locker room after the as-yet-unnamed Francine kissed Stevie and got into a Catfight with Beulah. During the match, Joey Styles said that it would be the last time they saw the Dudleys.
Well, Little Snot was gone soon after, so that original combination of the Dudleys never happened again after Heat Wave two weeks later, but still...
Ugly Cute: Devon would be quite handsome if not for the forehead scars.
Bubba gained a lot of fan girls once he became Bully Ray. Depending on where you looked online, he had some when he was doing the stuttering gimmick when they first arrived in WWE.
Vindicated by History: Bubba might have gotten a World Title shot when the Dudleyz first split, but it was during the infamous "Reign of Terror" where Triple H ran through almost everyone. At least Reverend D-Von introduced the world to Batista.
