* After Bubba the Love Sponge [[IncrediblyLamePun crossed the line]] by putting "Fuck Haiti" on his {{Twitter}} page, Awesome Kong punched him out. Granted, it ended up costing Kong her job, but [[HurricaneOfPuns kharma]] works in mysterious ways: a couple of months later, after ambushing Kong on a radio show and went on a racially-tinged tirade, Bubba himself was fired from TNA.

*** NotSoFastBucko ! Turns out Anthem threw both Corgan and Dixie out, and now they're in charge alone!

** Unfortunately, Anthem Sports & Entertainment basically took over instead, making sure it didn't work and ousting Corgan instead of Dixie, although they are effectively running the show.

* Mickie James got one on the April 14th episode. While Wrestling/MadisonRayne 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.

* The 2007 ''Victory Road'', a special 10 man ultimate x match using the elevation x scaffold follows a battle royal and Christopher Daniels is close to winning, hanging upside down from it when Wrestling/FrankieKazarian removes him from jumping off the top rope to catch in an elevated diamond cutter. Although his efforts turned out to be for not, as Elix Skipper and Low Ki proceeded to take out Kazarian and all the other X division wrestlers, giving Daniels enough time to recover and climb back up for the win. But the reformation of Triple X was awesome in of itself.

* Slammiversary 2006: For The NWA Tag Titles, America's Most Wanted (Chris Harris and Wrestling/James Storm) defending against Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles. In previous encounters, Wrestling/GailKim had been the difference maker making sure AMW retained the belts against them but earlier in the show Daniels and Styles commented they had a plan to neutralize her. During the match Gail tries to interfere but gets caught and a [[BrawnHilda giant muscular woman (Sirelda)]] appears in the ring and chokeslams her and carries her out of the arena evening the odds. Despite it Harris and Storm fought on proving why they were once TNA's greatest tag team, but in the end after a miscommunication and Storm hitting Harris by mistake, Styles and Daniels hit a Frog Splash Moonsault combo to end America's Most Wanted 8 month reign and Daniels would go on to say after they won the belts that was the loudest pop he's ever heard in The Impact Zone.

* The 2007 ''Sacrifice'' pay per view featured the first [[GimmickMatches Texas Death Match]] many viewers had ever seen, and it completely lived up to the hype, which was pleasantly surprising since at the last pay view the same two participants, James Storm and Chris Harris, had one of the worst matches any one had ever seen involving a cage and defective blindfolds. To go from ''that'' to a match of the year contender is amazing.

* Wrestling/GailKim made history in the promotion when she was crowned the first TNA Women's Champion (or Knockouts Champion, if you prefer) at ''Bound for Glory 2007''. She would be the standardbearer for the division (which garnered praise from both critics and fans of the promotion) for months, feuding with the top talent in the division—most infamously with Awesome Kong.

* ''Victory Road 2008'' was the stage for a Crowning Moment Of Awesome for Japanese wrestler Masato Yoshino during the opening match. It was the World X-Cup Elimination Match: a 12-man elimination tag match between the four teams competing in the World X-Cup tournament that was pretty much 20-plus minutes of nonstop action. The underlying story of the match was that Team Japan suffered early loses of two of its members, forcing Yoshino to go the rest of the match alone. Yoshino would make it down to the final two, where he would go down in defeat to Team TNA's Alex Shelley, but not before trading many near falls despite the fact that Team TNA was the dominant team in the match (two of the final four competitors were Team TNA's Shelley and Chris Sabin, better known as the Motor City Machineguns).

* ''Against All Odds 2008'' Jay Lethal with the fate of the X Division resting on his shoulders finds himself in a three on one situation against Team 3D and Johnny Devine after his partners The Machine Guns get taken out during the match. He fights well but gets overcome by them. But when they start to threaten his Love interest Socal Val, a fire ignites inside him and hs snaps with new found strength and takes all three of them out. Culminating in Hitting his Idol as a kid Macho Man RandySavage's Flying Elbow Drop through a table and winning the match.
** And shortly afterwards, Brother Ray (Before he became Bully) refuses to hand over The X Division Title so what does Lethal do? He dives out onto him laying him out and regaining the belt.

** Long version? When Corgan went into business with TNA in the first place he did so under an "equity pledge agreement", where if TNA became insolvent, [[labelnote:meaning]]in more debt than the company's worth[[/labelnote]] he would assume the voting rights on Dixie's shares and thus be in complete control of the company. His loaning money to the company to ensure that it could keep running shows was also a move to rack up the debt obligations. However, Dixie has denied the company's insolvency in order to keep Corgan from exercising his options and exercising his right to assume control. The pile-on of lawsuits and other complaints, AKA "multiple events of default," have allowed him to legally question TNA's claim of not being insolvent by which Dixie delayed his motion to assume control. That is the purpose of ''his'' lawsuit: to get the state to call bullshit on Dixie's solvency claims. He even filed a restraining order injunction so they can't sign contracts and sell off assets without his say-so in the meantime. He has outsmarted Dixie Carter in RealLife about as thoroughly as Immortal did in kayfabe, but where Immortal wanted to either run the company into the ground or cash out and pillage it, he's here to ''stop Dixie from doing so''.
