[[folder:The Wrestling event]]
!!2000:
* The main event was the six-man Hell in a Cell. Five of the six were The Rock, Stone Cold, Triple H, The Undertaker and Kurt Angle: all guys who would easily fit into the Top 10 of the Greatest Wrestlers in WWE History, and who an excellent case could be made for at least 3 (if not 4, or indeed, all 5) appearing in the Top 5. While previous [=HIACs=] had been pretty damn good, this match was full of so many jaw-droppingly awesome moments that it is still de-facto the greatest Hell in a Cell Match in history. It also featured [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Rikishi]], who played his role as the [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] (by being tossed off the top of the Cell onto a removal truck) excellently. This is proof that 2000 was the WWE's greatest year and a definitive [=CMOA=] in WWE history.

!!2005:
* The Hell In A Cell match between Randy Orton and The Undertaker.

!!2006:
* When Montel Vontavious Porter was first introduced into the WWE, the general consensus among the {{Smart Mark}}s was that he was a terrible wrestler, and his push (fittingly, as an overpaid, overrated, showboating {{Heel}}) would be better used on somebody with actual talent - the line of thinking apparently being, if (rapidly-decaying-at-this-point) smark darling Wrestling/ChrisBenoit couldn't drag a decent match out of him, there was no hope for him at all. Then came the 2006 event and the [[GimmickMatches Inferno Match]] between MVP and Kane - which ended with ''MVP's entire back consumed in flames''. Almost overnight, MVP became one of the most popular wrestlers among smarks, and while this eventually died down (as it always seems to), he remains an internet favorite to this day. If there's one thing wrestling fans, smark and mark alike, love to see, it's balls. [[DoubleEntendre Stop giggling]].
* The following match was quite awesome in its own right. Originally, it was supposed to be London and Kendrick (then WWE Tag Team Champions) fighting against William Regal and Dave Taylor for the Tag Team Championship. Why is it on this page, though? Well, let's start off with Teddy Long. He's in the Christmas Spirit and decides to give the fans a ladder match.
** He doesn't stop there, he says that the two teams would be lonely and added TWO MORE teams. The teams? MNM and the Hardys were the extra opponents. What happened were 30 minutes of undiluted ladder match and fighting and LOTS of bumps.
** Once the ring clears off, the two teams face to face are the Hardyz and London and Kendrick. It's a [=CMoA=] because these were the high flying teams of their generation (the Hardys being the 90's and London and Kendrick the present)
** One important scene was Mercury's eye injury. A ladder smashed both Nitro and Mercury in the face, but Mercury took the brunt of the attack. Mercury was taken to the hospital (with his face stitched and stapled) while Nitro fought alone for victory. He didn't win, but it was awesome that Nitro fought alone.
** London and Kendrick deserve a lot more credit; Kendrick bruised himself giving Regal a Sliced Bread #2 from the top of a 20ft ladder and falling out of the ring--someone is heard screaming OH MY GOD! when that happens--and London fights off Matt Hardy to get the championship. It was when the team got JBL's respect--after months of him commentating that London and Kendrick were bizarre kids from Pluto--and propelled them to awesomeness.

!!2008:
* At ''Armageddon 2007'', Jeff Hardy defeated Triple H '''clean''' to win a shot at the WWE Championship at the ''Royal Rumble'' in 2008 (managing to get Triple H to do a clean job could be a [=CMoA=] in and of itself, depending on who you ask). The following year would be one of controversy and heartbreak for both Jeff and his fans - he lost his match at the Royal Rumble; he blew his chance to be in the Money in the Bank match at ''[=WrestleMania=] 24'' thanks to a Wellness Policy violation (and during his suspension, his house burned down, destroying all of his personal possessions and killing his pet dog); and he lost three more shots at the WWE Championship after his return (and was written out of a fourth one). It looked like hope was lost for the "Charismatic Enigma"...until ''Armageddon 2008'', where Jeff Hardy competed against Triple H and WWE Champion [=Edge=] in a Triple Threat match for the title. After Triple H delivered a Pedigree to Edge, Jeff nailed a picture-perfect Swanton Bomb and covered Edge - and after one of the most tumultuous years of his life, Jeffrey Nero Hardy finally became the WWE Champion (and at the same time, he not only became a WWE Grand Slam Champion, but the only wrestler to win every single home-grown WWF/WWE title there ever was).
