---> '''Ken''': "I mean, wrestling, you can catch all over the place. You can catch replays online, you can check recaps, like on YouTube, you can check dirt sheets for all the results...it's ''not'' the end of the world if you miss one episode of Raw or Smackdown! because you had a special date night or an anniversary!"

** Went so far as to [[BorrowedCatchphrase borrow Brian Dorrington Jr.'s catchphrase]] "Moving On" as a sight gag to get Ken and Dan to move on from a long-running segment [[OverlyLongGag (though ironically the gag can take as long as the segment sometimes!)]]

* TheWatson: Dan and Ken actually play this role quite effectively for one another. When one man has a segment or news piece they want to talk about on the show, the other will start a narrative seguing into that segment/piece, giving the speaker a running start of sorts, then offer bits of information throughout the segment that the speaker may not have known about or considered before, expanding not only the audience's views on the subject, but the speaker's as well.

[[caption-width-right:350:The Consumer of Wrestling Knowledge]]

Dan came on as Ken's shiny new co-host at the beginning of Season 5 and instantly showed that he was tailor-made for the spotlight, being a presence when needed and a team player when necessary, a man who speaks with a purpose and backs it up with knowledge from the far corners of the wrestling world.

As his nickname indicates, Dan wasted no time laying claim to The Wrestling Kennection's top prize, winning the WK King of PPV Championship in his very first Pay-Per-PreView appearance[[note]]Royal Rumble 2018[[/note]]. He's shown he's more than a match for Ken in the pro wrestling pundit department, having swapped and taken championships from the host on a number of occasions throughout his debut year.

* BaldofAwesome: Thinning out on top, but it doesn't make him any less of a presence on the show, keeping up with and often times overtaking Ken when it comes to competing with PPV predictions.
* TheBigGuy: Ken's no shrimp by any means, but Dan's got at least 3-4 inches of height on the host.
* RedBaron: Almost as many as Ken! "The Prizefighter of The Wrestling Kennection", "The Dragon with The Gold", "The Consumer of Wrestling Knowledge, "The Breaker of Kens", the last one being a friendly shot at how many times Dan's upended Ken when it's come to PPV predictions.

* CommutingOnABus: Zack is Ken's primary co-host, but even he's fallen prey to scheduling and personal issues and often disappears anywhere ranging from a couple of episodes to a couple dozen.
