** An earlier on was on the Monday Night raw following the 1999 No Way Out PPV: Matt and [[JeffHardy Jeff]] go out to have a promo against Edge and Christian, when the crowd gives them a standing ovation. [[note]] As a midcarder, he expected a modicum of fan reaction, but this was a cheer worthy of StoneColdSteveAustin[[/note]] Matt was so moved that you can see him fighting not to cry.,

* The September 13, 2001, SmackDown at the Compaq Center in Houston, Texas, just two days following the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, and western Pennsylvania: The show was rescheduled after it was supposed to take place that fateful Tuesday. It was the first massive public gathering following the attacks, and the fact they sold out an arena normally used for NBA games, putting more than 10,000 lives at risk, was a big FU to al-Qaeda. It was meant to entertain, personal rivalries and angles were set aside, made people laugh and cry. Video testimonials were given by the performers and backstage crew. Arguably, the best moment was the entire locker room and crew stepping onto the ramp and the stage, many carrying American flags, and Lilian Garcia giving a performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" that put her on the map of this (at the time) new wrestling fan.

* [=Edge=]'s retirement speeches on Raw on Smackdown in 2011 and the accompanying tribute video. The highlight came when [=Edge=] turned the attention of the crowd to his mom, who was clearly nervous and emotionally distraught at her son's condition. Then the entire crowd broke into a chant of "Thank you mom!" which caused her to crack a smile.

* The 2003 "Christmas in Baghdad" special of "Smackdown" as it opened with Vince [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=478rGkLui_A thanking the troops]] for all they've done on behalf of America. It showed the soldiers then how much WWE coming on Christmas Day was greatly appreciated. Could also double as an SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome as it was the first time WWE began what would be a long-running tradition.

* In Ring of Honor in 2005 and 2006, one of the biggest, bloodiest feuds at the time was Colt Cabana VS. Homicide. It was such a violent feud (with Cabana feeling the brunt of all punishment) that the one-time fun-loving Cabana went all SeriousBusiness, growing a five-o-clock shadow, not telling a joke for months, making him lose all semblance of peace and happiness. The arduous eight-month feud culminated at ''Better Than Our Best'' in a Chicago Street Fight. In yet another bloody encounter, Cabana prevailed--but that's not the HeartwarmingMoment. See, after the match, Homicide cohorts (Julius Smokes and Ricky Reyes) attempted to ambush Cabana again. Homicide stopped them, seemingly trying to get the final shot in himself. But as he swung the chair over his head...he abruptly dropped it to the ground, fell to his knees, held out his hand and began apologizing. Cabana shook his hand, Homicide and company left, and Cabana smiled and celebrated for the first time in months.

* Jesse Sorensen's match at ''Glory By Honor XII''. Not because it was good, although it wasn't bad either. Not because anything about it really, it being the story of the underdog who bit off more than he could chew against Tommaso Ciampa. It was because the often fickle ROH fans didn't care about any of that for once. They were so happy to see Sorensen at all that they still gave him a standing ovation after it was over.

* [[Wrestling/VonErichFamily Kerry von Erich]] winning the NWA World Heavyweight Championship from Wrestling/RicFlair at the World Class Championship Wrestling's "Parade of Champions" on May 6, 1984, less than three months after the death of his brother David. Kerry wore a special robe inscribed "In Memory of David" on the back as he entered the ring. And after Kerry's win, every face wrestler on the card mobbed him in the ring to celebrate his win.
