* Dixie Carter, outside of her role as the CorruptCorporateExecutive so this was real, a shoot, addressed the, "Fire [[Wrestling/VinceRusso Russo]]" chants when asked about hiring him. Her threat to fire someone else if it happens again was all the evidence needed if there wasn't before that Carter's attitude was very much, "[[PrecisionFStrike Fuck]] the fans, we don't care."

* Giant Leviathan: Sami Zayn's FaceHeelTurn. I have one word to perfectly summarise why turning Sami Zayn Heel was a colossally stupid decision: R-Evolution. The entire point of that storyline, was that Sami Zayn was tempted to turn Heel after months and months of getting screwed over, but ultimately chose not to. And the thing is, he did show an edge, he did show character (Probably more character than anyone on the main roster has right now), and he did it all while making the conscious choice to stay Babyface. But now we're saying that that moment no longer matters. This pivotal moment in Sami Zayn's character may as well have never happened. [[SarcasmMode Great, well done]] [=WWE=]. This is as idiotic as Batman suddenly gunning down families in alleyways, or Spiderman deciding he doesn't need to bother stopping criminals, or [[TakeThat Captain America joining Hydra]]. You're going against one of the most important moments in their character development (And in Sami Zayn's case, the very thing that made him stand out as a unique character) for the sake of a shock moment, and his reasoning is moronic too. "[[InsaneTrollLogic After being severely injured, I now realise that my worst enemy is totally correct and I will now change my life's philosophy to agree with him!]]" [[SarcamMode Gee... I never realised it was so easy! I think tonight I'll go stab some Westburo Baptist Church members. Because as we all know, violently assaulting someone is the best way to get them to agree with your worldview.]] Also, this makes no sense for Kevin Owens either. This is the guy who is the most paranoid man on the planet. [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder The guy who turned on Chris Jericho because he felt so uncomfortable with someone being so close to him]]. There is no way Kevin Owens would be so accepting of this. If the writers had any consideration for character consistency whatsoever, Kevin should be going: "What's your angle? You think I owe you something? Don't try to pull that "I just wanted to help" shit on me!" Because an act of such loyalty would make Kevin Owen deeply uncomfortable. [[HeelRealization Since it reminds him of how much of a treacherous scumbag he is]]. But no. Fuck nuance. Fuck character depth and consistency. We need a random shock moment because the [=WWE=] doesn't know how to write characters. So here's the real story as far as I'm concerned:Sami Zayn died on a hospital bed due to a crushed throat. The guy who came to save Kevin Owens is his identical cousin Mami Sane. And I'm done. The two characters that brought me back into the WWE, into wrestling, were Bray Wyatt and Sami Zayn. Now one of them is a rambling idiot who is about as worthless as slime mold.And the other one is dead.Fuck you WWE.

Other low points for me were the 2005 angle involving Jim Ross' colonoscopy surgery, Shelton Benjamin's mother, HHH burying the entire roster in his 2007 return, Beaver Cleavage, and the Undertaker continuing his run way past his prime, giving us awful matches like the one against Roman Reigns at WM33.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Tropers/BlahaIsAFraud}}: Survivor Series 2008. John Cena comes back from injury and immediately buries Chris Jericho, a horrible WWE title match between HHH and VLADIMIR KOSLOV of all people, and an abysmal casket match.

* SNL95: To put how little the WCW title meant after these aforementioned incidents; after Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} lost the title it changed hands 32 TIMES in two years with the longest reign being 3 months. Some title reigns didn't even last a week and David Arquette and VinceRusso were among the champions. Hell, Wrestling/ChrisBenoit willingly giving up the title is a testament to how meaningless the title had become under VinceRusso's booking.

* Shadow200: TNA's inability to get things right and learn from their mistakes make things go from bad to worse. Everytime it looks like they are turning the corner you just have to count to three to watch them do something stupid. And yet they continue to do so again and again, whether it's idiotic storylines, depushing and firing over talent that people like cause it's not who Dixie likes. Wasting millions of Dollars on so called celebrities (Jenna Morsaca, Johnny Fairplay, The Mutants from Jersey Shore) while talent has to live off of food stamps. No wonder so many people have been turned off from them and never bothering to watch them again. I'm one of them.

* Tropers/{{Peridonyx}}: In light of ''[=WrestleMania=] 33'', I've removed my previous Streak-related entry. Brock Lesnar's match may have been an AntiClimax, but at least he was still a WorthyOpponent for The Undertaker... unlike Roman Reigns, the #1 {{Scrappy}} in wrestling today. 'Taker seemingly retired at 23-2, and Reigns was once again forced upon an absolutely disgusted crowd. And Vince McMahon wonders why so many people [[DudeNotFunny wish that he'd just die already]] so that the company can finally get new leadership.
