* In Wrestling/LuchaUnderground, Fenix and Mil Muertes clashed in Grave Consequences, a brutal back-and-forth match that saw Fenix put Muertes in the casket for the win, and presumably killing him. Muertes wasn't done, though, and came back even stronger than before with the help of Catrina. He challenged Fenix to a Death Match and won with ease, throwing Fenix through the roof of Dario Cueto's office.

*LuchaUnderground: Matanza in his debut match (the gift of the gods) completely dispatches everyone once he enters the match with relative ease and only rey mysterio put up somewhat of a fight. The following weeks matanza squash pentagon Jr. and then the former LU champion feinx in his matches.

Added DiffLines:

* Prior to the mid-1990s, a typical episode of weekly syndicated professional wrestling programs consisted mainly of curb-stomp battles; these were called {{squash match}}es, and were used to establish the pushed wrestler's skill; if he were a bad guy, these matches would also demonstrate how big and bad they were, and what a threat they posed to the lead babyface.

* A bread-and-butter trope for years in professional wrestling, wherein an established wrestler is pitted against a jobber, and the resulting match is little more than the winning wrestler showing off all the moves in his offensive arsenal. While all pushed wrestlers from babyfaces to run-of-the-mill heels will be showcased in these matches at some point, this trope is most commonly used in association with [[WrestlingMonster the Monster]], whom the promoter is trying to push as an unstoppable, feared juggernaut who will hurt, if not kill, at will and without remorse. However, given the nature of wrestling, it is possible for a wrestler to not injure his opponent in any way but still win, as it only takes ten seconds to win by count out, three seconds to win by pin fall and less than a second to win by disqualification.

* {{WWE}} ''Summerslam 2014''. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Wrestling/JohnCena defends the title against Wrestling/BrockLesnar. Most fans expected a repeat of their collision in 2013, in which Cena came out victorious after a hard-fought battle, or at least a back-and-forth contest. This wasn't a Lesnar that was still recovering from [[GameBreakingInjury diverticulitis]], however, this was the man that had '''[[DefeatingTheUndefeatable broken the Streak]]'''. Lesnar steamrolled Cena, [[NoSell literally laughing off]] Cena's [[FinishingMove A.A.]], and threw him around like a rag doll with German suplex after German suplex. It was the most hopeless battle that Cena had had in years, and sixteen suplexes later, Brock Lesnar was the new champion.

* Wrestling/KurtAngle and Wrestling/SamoaJoe delivered a two on one beating in which they competed to see who could beat Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels worse at ''Hardcore Justice 2012''. The winner? Wrestling/AJStyles, this being a [[GimmickMatches climb up a ladder and retrieve a contract match]], not a beat Daniels match.
