** The Red-State Machine and Well-Read Machine are not terribly uncommon either. (Out of character, Glenn Jacobs is quite prolific in writing opinions on politics, mostly libertarian-leaning--making his long-running comedy tag-team with real-life liberal-leaning Daniel Bryan even funnier in hindsight) In any case, Corporate Kane or Korporate Kane ended up becoming AscendedFanon.

This one sits in a gray area, as it's apparently the name Bryan picked for it [[NamedByDemocracy via fan vote]] but has never been invoked by WWE announcers - or even Bryan himself - on television.

** "New Orleans Screwjob" for the ''[=WrestleMania=] 34'' main event version of the Wrestling/MontrealScrewjob due to the fans' negative reaction towards Reigns and Lesnar. Some just wanted Lesnar to go away, seeing his gimmick as becoming stale and self-indulgent; some wanted WWE to stop pussyfooting around, pull the trigger on Reigns, and let him sink or swim as champion; some thought the match's blood was over the top disgusting for the so-called PG era product aimed at children; some thought the match's finish was nonsensical booking; and some theorized that Vince had decided at the last minute to either put off Lesnar's defeat until he broke CM Punk's record or have him drop it at the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV in Saudi Arabia where Roman would be unlikely to be booed in victory. Regardless, very few people were happy at what seemed like the storyline's natural and intended conclusion [[ArcFatigue getting put off again]].
