* ''October 6, 2011'': Wrestling/{{Sting}}'s DangerouslyGenreSavvy quest to get Wrestling/HulkHogan to face him at ''Bound for Glory'' and/or turn the company back over to Dixie Carter has produced several terrific moments, but none quite as gratifying as the night he finally got it done. Hogan, a week ago, had announced his "[[TenMinuteRetirement retirement]]", and on this night was making his formal "final address", giving personal tribute to Hulkamania and to the fans "on the way out". Sting never bought it for a second; he'd [[FridgeBrilliance seen this]] [[FingerPokeOfDoom play out before]]. So instead of leaving it be, he came out in a red suit and Hulkamania shirt to call question to the whole thing and then to [[EngineeredPublicConfession expose it as a lie through video footage of Hulk and Eric laughing about their elaborate hoax]]. Hogan finally [[VillainousBreakdown had his meltdown]] and got so pissed off he agreed to everything Sting had been asking for this whole time on the double. The OpenMouthInsertFoot look on Hollywood's face...the crowd rejoicing at the fact that Hulk's reign is finally ''really'' about to come to an end after he tried to play them for fools...Sting ''laughing at Hogan'' as he walked up the ramp with his music on to end the show. All freakin' '''priceless'''.

* The #FINALDELETION between Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy, involving Jeff fighting Drones (sorry, AERIAL ASSAULT ROBOTS) with a guitar, Matt having a hologram, driving over Jeff's lawn with a lawnmower and drawing shapes int it, Senor Benjamin (Matt's Hispanic housekeeper), Matt playing the violin (claiming it was given to him by close personal friend Stradivari) to summon Matt and culminating in possibly the most cinematic, gloriously crazy match ever put in tape.

* TNA starts this 2015 in Destination America with a massive battle royale with the entire roster, followed by Wrestling/KurtAngle's return to action against [[Wrestling/MontelVontaviousPorter MVP]]. It also featured [[Wrestling/KiaStevens Awesome Kong]]'s return to the promotion, staring Havok after the Knockouts Match, concluding with not one, neither two... three {{Face Heel Turn}}s of Wrestling/SamoaJoe, Wrestling/LowKi and Eric Young. Biggest Crowning Moment of Awesome of the year ever.

** The following week on July 28, Beer Money finally shut up [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Mexican]] [[TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste America]]. After [[TheScrappy Anarquia]] called out Beer Money in his usual grating voice from Latin hell, they came out to the ring. He continued to drone on in Spanglish, being booed all the while, until finally James Storm took the mic and told him to "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis SHUT. UP.]]" The crowd couldn't have been happier. After a bit of would-be [[HypocriticalHumor racist hypocritical humor]] about Mexican America cutting grass ("would-be" because they really are that bad), Storm decided to "reintroduce" Beer Money by putting Roode over as a money-making take-no-nonsense ass-kicker and listing every country American thing about himself in the long-winded catchphrase style made famous by Ric Flair and [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]. He then promises to kick their ass not only for the fans in the Impact Zone and at home, but also the great luchadores (like [[WrestlingFamily the Guerreros]]) and all the other Hispanics effectively disgraced by Mexican America. After a bit of green card [[That70sShow Red Forman]] humor (again appropriate in this case because of the targets' character bents), Storm turns it over to Roode, who puts the cap on it with Storm's catchphrase before Beer Money's music comes back on. Mexican America was just effectively silenced in a promo AT LONG LAST.

* Taylor Wilde is full of this trope. At ''Victory Road 2008'', she gave the gargantuan Awesome Kong a freaking armdrag from the top rope, sending her across the ring. At ''Sacrifice 2009'', she gave [[Wrestling/DaffneyUnger Daffney]] a Death Valley Driver ''headfirst'' onto a trash can. And at ''Slammiversary 2009'', she dove at Daffney through a table, ''and'' threw Daffney onto a pile of thumbtacks!

* 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.
