* In a later October 2006 episode of ''Raw'', Maria accidentally spilled coffee on Eric Bischoff's shirt. His response: You will wrestle Wrestling/{{Umaga}} or you will be fired. Needless to say, Maria was seriously injured, and the only thing that saved her from being the hottest woman ever to be laid to rest in her hometown's cemetery was John Cena running in to run Umaga off.
** This actually happened about a year earlier when Maria just asked an innocent question to a seething Bischoff who ordered her to be in a match with Kurt Angle. She got hit with a brutal Angle Slam before, once again, John Cena came to save the day. It should also mention that Eric had more than enough reasons to get Maria some payback: she pretty much chewed him out over his control over Raw in a way that no one expected: using a ''very'' extensive vocabulary and pretty much stated "Bischoff's been causing chaos in RAW and he should be fired."

* In the original Wrestling/{{ECW}}, Wrestling/{{Raven}} dedicated his entire life to destroying Tommy Dreamer in every way possible -- injuring him in any way he could, either by himself or sending members of his [[PowerStable Nest]] to do it for him, all because Tommy had [[{{Kayfabe}} been mean to Beulah [=McGillicutty=] when she was the fat girl at summer camp]].[[note]]What makes this hilarious on a meta-level is that Tommy Dreamer ended up MARRYING Trisa "Beulah[=McGillicutty=]" Hayes the year after ECW folded.[[/note]]

* This is, of course, an important part of ProfessionalWrestling, with the {{Heel}}s often giving out brutal punishment after losing a match.
** On a related note, in the older territory days, when kayfabe was far stronger and 99 percent of fans wholly believed wrestling was as real as boxing, the very best heels were often able to invoke this with ''the fans'': they would get local crowds so riled up (by beating up some guy they liked, remember) that they would push past booing/throwing garbage and go right to mob mentality and would attempt to literally murder the heels. Old-time wrestlers and managers from the 50's to the 70's would often tell stories about being stabbed or slashed, having acid thrown on them, and having the ring surrounded by masses of people and having to fight their way to the back with chairs.[[note]]What's really ironic is such stories are almost always presented as nostalgic glimpses at 'the good old days' that modern times simply can't replicate, the storytellers often not seeming to realize that they barely escaped being brutally murdered by people for the crime of 'beating someone else up', which they weren't even actually doing to begin with.[[/note]]



* In 2015, Wrestling/JamesStorm asked Wrestling/MickieJames, who had announced her retirement to raise her son, not to retire and to join his stable. When she declined, he threw her into the path of a train (it was a storyline, she was of course not really hurt).

** That's nothing compared to veteran manager "Playboy" Gary Hart (no relation to the former U.S. Senator) sending [[Characters/RingOfHonor Homicide]] and Wrestling/LowKi to attack Wrestling/TerryFunk at [[Wrestling/{{MLW}} Major League Wrestling]]'s ''Reloaded Tour 2004'', January 10, 2004, out of revenge for Funk having lost the "I Quit" match to Wrestling/RicFlair at ''[[Wrestling/{{WCW}} NWA]] Clash of the Champions IX'', on November 15, ''1989''.

* Early in his 1985 WWF run, to help get him over as a dirty, foul-mouthed heel with an itchy trigger-finger temper, Terry Funk beat up ring announcer/attendant Mel Phillips, bruising his ribs and tearing all his clothes off. Phillips' crime: putting on Funk's cowboy hat as he collected it before Funk's match; his hands were full with Funk's other gear.
* The October 10, 2006 episode of Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s ECW show featured an "Extreme Strip Poker" competition involving a mix of [[Characters/WWEDivas Divas]] from {{WWE Raw}}, {{WWE Smackdown}} and ECW. After each girl is in their underwear (and [[{{Wrestling/KellyKelly}} one is topless]] but using HandOrObjectUnderwear), Wrestling/CandiceMichelle loses a match. She looks like she is about to go topless but she stops. Maria then asks if she is embarrassed. And, just for that one comment, she is stripped completely naked on national TV by the first who claimed she "cheated".

* Maria, who was the target of Eric Bischoff in 2006 after she accidentally spilled coffee on his brand-new, custom-made shirt. Maria tried to apologize but Bischoff punished her by putting her in a match -- immediately -- against Umaga. '''To make matters worse''': If she refused the match, she would be fired. [[ForegoneConclusion Needless to say, it didn't go well]] for the sexiest WWE diva, and had to rely on Wrestling/JohnCena to (literally) save her life.
