- Evil Is Cool
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The Nausea Fuel-inducing anecdote of André the Giant losing bowel control onto Allen in a match takes a new significance when you realize that Bad News Brown, well, left covered in bad news brown.
- Irony: Bad News Brown won the WrestleMania IV battle royal by eliminating fellow heel Bret Hart, leading to Bret trashing the trophy. This turned Bret into a Face. Had it happened ten years later, Bret would have been booed out of the arena and Bad News would have become the #1 babyface in the business. Put another way, he was "Stone Cold" Steve Austin before there was a "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and a kind of retroactive Draco in Leather Pants.
- Older Than They Think: Coage and Bret Hart engaged in the first ladder match is Stampede, years before it would be used in the WWF.
YMMV / Allen Coage
