* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: In 1993, Waltman debuted in WWE (then the WWF) as "The Kid" and was primarily a {{Jobber}} who suffered [[SquashMatch decisive losses]] to Wrestling/DoinkTheClown and short-lived powerhouse Mr. Hughes. And then, one night, the Kid was on the receiving end of an ass-kicking from [[Wrestling/ScottHall Razor Ramon]], and scored an upset that shocked the world.

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In his very first promo back in the WWE in 1998, he says he's there to "rip ass." Waltman would later do just that--literally-- many years later in an infamous incident.


* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: In 2012 he shaved off his beard, returned to the 1-2-3 Kid gimmick and worked several matches for Wrestling/{{Chikara}}. He busted his ass in the ring (earning some well deserved "He's still got it!" chants from the fans), put over indy star El Generico, and afterwards left a letter in the Chikara locker room thanking them for giving him the chance to work for them and that it was the best time he'd had in wrestling in a decade.

* DesignatedVillain: As a result of the extreme XPacHeat he had, he would always be considered the bad guy even when he didn't do anything wrong or remotely villainous during a match. In 2000, X-Pac had tag team match with Road Dogg against the Hardy Boyz. During the match, Lita actually interfered and attacked X-Pac to the wild cheers of the audience even though up to that point, X-Pac hadn't even done anything heel-ish at all. Under any other time or context, a female valet interfering in a match like that against a wrestler would have been considered the evil heel. However, because this was [[TheScrappy X-Pac]] during the height of his infamy(and Lita during the height of her popularity), there was absolutely no chance for X-Pac to be seen as the innocent victim even though he didn't do anything bad and Lita was the one who attacked him without provocation.

* TheWoobie: Regardless of what one may think of his WWE tenure, Sean Waltman is this in real life. When he was young, he grew up with a single mother and was molested several times. And in addition to having a lot of drug problems throughout his life, he's also attempted suicide on multiple occasions. Say what you will about X-Pac but Sean Waltman, the man, has most definitely not had an easy life.


* TheScrappy: One of the most notable Scrappies in the history of wrestling, so much so that he [[TropeNamer named]] and [[TropeCodifier codified]] his own brand of Scrappiness: XPacHeat.

* ReplacementScrappy: For Ray González in WWC. Not even putting {{Carl|ito Colon}}y in the ring with him could get a positive response.

* GrowingTheBeard: Literally and figuratively, as he became Syxx in WCW and then X-Pac in WWE.
* HolyShitQuotient: For a time in TheNineties, the 1-2-3 Kid was ''the'' resident high-flyer in WWF, doing crazy suicide dives and moonsaults before the company really appreciated that kind of thing.
