* Normally, Vince [=McMahon=] can be counted on to be given '''huge''' portions of comeuppance whenever he's playing the heelish BadBoss. Not so in 2003: Getting Wrestling/HulkHogan fired ''twice'', bullying a cripple who wanted to enter the WWE named Zach Gowen, convincing BrockLesnar to [[FaceHeelTurn betray]] his former best friend Kurt Angle and subsequently costing Angle the WWE Championship, fighting and defeating ''his own daughter'' in an I Quit Match in order to get her removed as Smackdown! GM, and burying Wrestling/TheUndertaker alive with the help of Kane. You'd think he's setting himself up for some major retribution at WrestleMania 20, but instead his only involvement during the show is to come out midway through and thank the fans for their twenty years of support.

* During the late 90s early 2000s, the Wrestling/BigBossman had a bad heel run where being a karma houdini seemed to be his gimmick. He did all sorts of horrible things outside the ring, such as cook Al Snow's dog and feed it to him and disrupt the funeral of The Big Show's father. Inside the ring, most of his matches, win lose or draw, ended with him handcuffing his opponent to the ropes and beating him with a nightstick. The worst things that happened to him were Big Show practically attempting to murder him by dropping an enormous dumpster onto his car, then Show ultimately winning the blowoff match in their feud in short order. He never did get anywhere near the main event scene again, though.

* {{Wrestling/Kane}} got one in the summer of 2009. He kidnapped and tortured The Great Khali's "brother," Ranjin Singh, and launched some sneak attacks on Khali himself to boot. You'd think that Kane was definitely cruising for a comeuppance, but afterward he defeated Khali in pay-per-view matches ''twice''. And just to make things even more aggravating, Kane turned face soon afterward with no penance on his part. This could just be because [[PopularityPower WWE fans honestly like Kane more than they do Khali]].

*** However, this was eventually subverted somewhat when Punk used a pipe wrench to {{Knee Cap}} Orton in order to prevent him from using said kick -- let alone wrestling at 100% -- for the remainder of their feud.

** However, this was ultimately subverted a bit at WrestleMania 25 -- exactly a year later, no less -- where JBL lost to ReyMysterioJr in such a humiliating fashion that JBL actually quit his wrestling career during his VillainousBreakdown.

* In her current state, Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon has been a tall order BadBoss, sadistically abusing Wrestling/TheBigShow before firing him, and trying desperately to destroy Daniel Bryan's run as World Champion (similarly with sadistic glee). Since no male wrestler can truly give her just desserts without crossing MoralEventHorizon, she has yet to get that smirk wiped off her face, most retaliations directed towards her husband Triple H instead.
** Zigzagged as she gets slapped by Brie Bella and later "arrested" for attacking her while she was a fan.
** Also, VickieGuerrero, after being fired and no longer having anything to lose, dumps her into a wading pool of several substances that look pudding-like. To say she's had that coming is definitely an understatement.

instead. She does get the occasional moment of comeuppance, like being kayfabe arrested during her feud with Brie Bella and later "arrested" for attacking her while she was or being dumped into a fan.
** Also,
pool of pudding by VickieGuerrero, after all of these moments are either very minor or otherwise don't affect her for very long, as it'll always result in her being fired and no longer having anything to lose, dumps her into a wading pool of several substances that look pudding-like. To say she's had that coming is definitely an understatement.back the next week acting even worse.

* Behind the scenes: Wrestling/CurtHennig pranked Jacques Rougeau and blamed [[Wrestling/DynamiteKid Tom Billington]]. It escalated to the point where Jacques punched Tom in the mouth with a loaded fist, knocking out four teeth. Curt never owned up and never got punished.

* Wrestling/ChrisHero had been a general nuisance to Wrestling/RingOfHonor before he officially lead the Wrestling/{{CZW}} invaders against it and remained a general nuisance to Ring of Honor even after the invasion had ended. How did Ring Of Honor ultimately decided to deal with him? By signing him to a contract that stated he would give priority to their bookings before all other companies...that's right, they gave him a full time spot on their roster, where he would go on to cause even more trouble with Wrestling/LarrySweeney.
