* The Kurt Angle Retirement Series is this. In particular, his two matches with Wrestling/Drew Galloway The first one is a great stand out and even was the main event. There second match, while not as grand, was just as wonderful. Not only did these matches show that the aging Angle still had some gas in the tank, but cemented Galloway as a future main eventer.

* Against All Odds 2010 was D'Angelo Dinero's CMOA (Sadly among his few in the company) when he competed in the Eight Card Stud Tournament to become the number one contender to the TNA World Championship. Through the evening, Dinero had three excellent matches against Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan and Mr. Anderson (ANDERSON!) with him putting on a great performance in each match that culminated in Pope winning the tournament after overcoming a beating from the Band and Anderson himself. A great night for the Pope in general.

* Dec 9, 2010. Wrestling/VelvetSky TookALevelInBadass. Before their tag team match, Sarita gave her a HannibalLecture on how Velvet is dependent on her partner Wrestling/AngelinaLove to win anything, until Velvet [[ShutUpHannibal spears her]] so fast that it's like she did a ''FlashStep'', then mercilessly beats her down. However, because Angelina got the pinfall, Sarita gloated that she proved her point.

* On February 3rd 2011, after Wrestling/KevinNash and Wrestling/BookerT jumped ship to WWE (and thus thwarted [=TNA's=] attempt to reunite the Main Event Mafia), TNA pulls an AuthorsSavingThrow and ''finally'' give the fans what they've been asking for since Immortal's first night of existence, that actually made a ''lot'' more sense than their original plan would've. Wrestling/JeffHardy is in a rematch for the TNA World Championship with new champ Mr. Anderson, and the ref gets knocked out; Jeff uses the opportunity to call down Immortal and have them whale on Anderson. Per usual, Wrestling/AJStyles and the rest of Fortune came out to assist in the beating - but just before AJ lays a hand on Anderson, he pulls his punch and throws up the Fortune handsign. With that signal, Beer Money and Kazarian turn the tables on Immortal and eject them from the ring, then Robert Roode clotheslines Hardy and AJ nails the Styles Clash, effectively turning Fortune face and costing Hardy the match. AJ then spent the next segment putting his Wrestling/RicFlair-taught mic skills to work, firing up the crowd in a pretty decent Flairesque promo. The best part is that Ric was gone that night, leaving AJ to sell the angle almost entirely on his own - which he did like a champ.

* It happened! In the August 7th, 2014 Impact Wrestling tapings, behold how Bully Ray put Dixie Carter through the table with her name in it after months of failed attempts. What makes even more amazing is that the entire TNA Roster (mainly {{Faces}}), appeared in order to avoid Dixie's escape attempt. The moment was so memorable (and treated as such by TNA) that within two days, typing "dixie carter" into the YouTube search bar will result in three of the ten top related keywords being some variation of "dixie carter/table".

* ''Earl Hebner'' got one during a match involving The Beautiful People when he proved he was NotDistractedByTheSexy, but was ''smart enough'' to make out with Lacey Von Erich ''anyway'' before ejecting her from ringside.

* Mickie James got one on the April 14th episode. While Madison Rayne was arguing with her [[TheDragon Dragon]], Mickie, despite having been run over by a motorcycle and having her shoulder dislocated, comes out and delivers a very convincing WorldOfCardboardSpeech, swearing to tear every hair out of Rayne's head and beat her within an inch of her life. The real Crowning Moment Of Awesome here comes from her delivery of the speech, which made her seem to be an absolute {{Badass}} despite having her arm in a sling.

* KurtAngle's debut video. Not so much because of its content, but because in an era where every little thing gets leaked online and five or six journalists (including Dave Meltzer) are dedicated to being backstage reporters on the business, ''everyone'' was caught off-guard by it...including just about ''the entire TNA locker room.''

* ''Lockdown 2010'' got TNA an early contender for Match of the Year with the "escape-only" Steel Cage Match between KurtAngle and Mr. Anderson. It's considered to be Anderson's best match to date, and one of Kurt's finest performances (in a career filled to the brim with outstanding performances).

*** As for Bully Ray being taken care of? He tried to interfere in the Sting-Anderson title match after a ref bump, only to find himself cleared from the scene by lighting games and a ''fifth'' evil clown, which allowed Sting to get the clean win on Ken to take the title. That fifth clown? ''Number one contender KurtAngle''. Who, let's remember, was [[ContinuityNod the main guy that kept Bischoff off of Fortune's trail when they originally turned on Immortal]] [[RealLifeWritesThePlot by making the entire "]][[IronicEcho anti!Them]][[RealLifeWritesThePlot " operation look like a Main Event Mafia revival]]. Between this, the parking lot comment, the clown suit worn by Angle, and the fact that there were lighting games and a fifth clown suit in the first place, it's heavily implied Fortune got Kurt in on the big plan and/or Sting anticipated his and Bully Ray's run-ins and timed it perfectly. At the same time, he doesn't look like a hypocrite for saying earlier that night that he was interested in facing and beating either Sting or Anderson, primarily because ''he never touched Anderson''.

** Wrestling/BobbyRoode pulling the ''SummerSlam [[FleetingDemographicRule '97]]'' Wrestling/BretHart BatmanGambit on Sting and Jeff Hardy to retain the World Heavyweight Championship, except more obviously on purpose.

** The Fortune vs. Immortal match at ''Lethal Lockdown'' had it's fair share, including Daniels hitting a crossbody from the top of the cage to MattHardy and Abyss. However, the crowner has to be AJ Styles returning to help Fortune pull out the win and taking a measure of revenge on Bully Ray for taking him out. Bully Ray reacting like he just saw a ghost is the best part.
