- Ensemble Dark Horse: He got over in Ring of Honor despite the fact he had never won a match until Jim Cornette made him win one
- Narm: The Delirious-Daizee Haze-Rhett Titus love triangle storyline in ROH.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: He was at first shielded by Jim Cornette and then overlooked thanks to the Sinclair Broadcast Group but after Cornette left ROH and SBG ownership became accepted as the status quo, fans' dissatisfaction with ROH's real and perceived shortcomings started to get aimed at him, as with every booker since 2008.
