** Goldberg's feud with Sid Vicious. Yes, the one with the car crushing. Shortly afterwards, Goldberg had a mystery partner in a tag match, and it turned out to be Sid. That was a swerve.

* He's no JR, but Schiavone did call one of the greatest swerves of all time.: Luger unexpectedly winning the World Title from Hogan at the Palace of Auburn Hills (in August 1997). Luger's got Hogan in the rack and the crowd is going bananas, then Schiavone comes in screaming "Luger's got him in the rack! They're on their feet here in Detroit!!" The bell rings and the arena comes unglued. Tony's going nuts, and even he sounds like he's in disbelief: "Luger won the title? LUGER WON THE TITLE?! LUGER WON THE TITLE!!''"

** It should be noted that Malenko was taking time off for most of the feud. Jericho built this feud up ''by himself'', making fun of Malenko at every turn and even carrying around a blown-up version of one of Malenko's promotional photos. This culminated at the aforementioned ''Slamboree'' Cruiserweight battle royal, which was won by Ciclope when Juventud Guerrera jumped over the top rope to eliminate himself. Jericho ran in to gloat (and to attack his challenger) immediately afterward, and Ciclope unmasked, revealing Malenko. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dpm_KbxyLTI The crowd came completely unglued in response.]] In his book, Jericho notes that this was "one of the top three most electric crowd responses I'd ever been in, and I'd been with Wrestling/TheRock and [[Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin Stone Cold]] at their peaks".

The storyline had Jericho having the "Ice Man" so rattled that he began a losing streak, which culminated in a dejected and fed up Malenko going "home".

* Vince Russo's Crowning Moment Of Awesome (better known as "the only good thing Russo's ever done") came at ''Bash at the Beach 2000'', when he became so fed up with the backstage politics that had crippled WCW for years that he turned it into a WorkedShoot angle that turned more shoot than work. JeffJarrett, who was scheduled to defend the WCW World Heavyweight Championship against Hulk Hogan that night, ended up lying down for Hogan and giving him the title. After Hogan had left ringside, Wrestling/VinceRusso came out and cut a emotional promo promising that Hulk Hogan would never be seen in WCW again (he wasn't), the politicking he had to deal with from Hogan and the other old-guard wrestlers was almost too much for him to handle, and that he was giving a title shot to someone who "still [gave] a shit" about WCW -- Wrestling/BookerT. For Russo, it all went exactly as planned. Well, except the lawsuit. (Watch the full promo [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHeD-DSmL_k here]].) Booker T won that match - and his first World Title - that night, becoming the second African-American (after Wrestling/RonSimmons) to hold the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, one of the few black world champions anywhere!

* The "party" thrown by the New Four Horsemen and Wrestling/ArnAnderson on ''Nitro'' in 1998, with Ric Flair returning to WCW after a long hiatus. This editor would be remiss in failing to mention the amazing amounts of WIN that was Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Steve [=McMichael=], Wrestling/DeanMalenko, and Wrestling/ChrisBenoit standing in the ring, reforming the Horsemen, as well as Ric Flair's absolute fury at Eric Bischoff for crashing the party.
