* Aleister Black's entrance is incredibly [[https://78.media.tumblr.com/cb160bb32007b03ca3808d27ff046492/tumblr_onraw6R0Hj1u1ljrzo1_500.gif eerie,]] especially with the riff that plays in the background while he rises.

** How did Roman respond to Braun's attack? He shoved him into an ambulance, then backs it up into a semi-truck ''with Braun still inside.'' The truck shreds the ambulance, and Braun stumbles out bleeding and looking more wounded than he ever had before.

** Then on April 24, Braun Strowman fought against Kalisto with the [[spoiler:the latter sneakily winning against the big man. Unfortunately, that infuriated Strowman and after toying with Kalisto, he ended up throwing his potentially unconscious body into the dumpster, locking it and then pushing up to the stage to push it off the stage, majorly harming Kalisto.]]

** Wrestling/TripleH. Sure, he's [[CartoonishSupervillainy a comically despicable, often cowardly blowhard]]. But his affinity for skulls (and, at one ''{{WrestleMania}}'', [[TheTerminator Terminator]] robots) and the extreme surrealism and mercilessness of his entrance theme "The Game" all but guarantees that many children will have a strong aversion to him.

* Kane Vs Wrestling/TheUndertaker at Wrestlemania 20 had some pretty disturbing aspects. The build-up to the match began after Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2003, when Kane stabbed the then mortal Undertaker in the back, and helped Mr [=McMahon=] bury him alive. Then, at the following Royal Rumble, one entrant goes missing, and all that is Heard is a solemn Church bell. This was the start of two months of headgames as Kane saw his brother taunt him with hints and supernatural threats of his resurrection. Finally, at Wrestlemania 20, the backdrop to the arena entrance had a video screen made to look like New York. When Kane comes out... it looks like the entire city is engulfed in fire. And when its Undertakers turn to come out, all is silent... until the disturbing high pitched voice of Wrestling/PaulBearer echoes.

* During his first run in the WWF in 1992, Las Vegas native Charles Wright (best known as the Godfather) was packaged as voodoo practitioner Papa Shango. Although considered [[Narm/ProfessionalWrestling laughable]] today for Wright's exaggerated portrayal of the character, the gimmick had fans -- particularly younger ones -- shivvering and screaming in bed the times they saw this scary-looking monster hold up a flaming skull and, just by raising his hand, could make his opponents (almost always, jobbers, but sometimes the UltimateWarrior and at least once "Mean" Gene Okerlund) writhe in extreme pain, hemorrhage blood without explanation and vomit violently ... and Papa Shango didn't even have to be anywhere ''near'' the ring to make his hapless victims suffer. (Wright, already heavily tattooed, had a large skull painted on his face and spoke with a scary growl to make the Papa Shango character realistic, which did not help matters.)

* Wrestling/{{Sheamus}} vs. Jamie Noble. While Jamie Noble did win a few titles with WCW and Ring of Honor, his appearance on Raw was supposed to be a run-of-the-mill jobbing match. Before it, {{Sheamus}} said (in kayfabe) that [[HarsherInHindsight this match would end Noble's career.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzfQblbGqNk It did in real-life.]]

** [[Wrestling/EddieGuerrero Eddie Guerrero's]] [[SanitySlippage increasingly deranged]] and finally psychotic behavior as he stalked Wrestling/ReyMysterio and his family throughout much of 2005. ''Especially'' [[DespairEventHorizonh the promo he cut]] the week after ''[=SummerSlam=]''. Particularly poignant because this was less than two months before Eddie's death.

** [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWE's Elimination Chamber]] and [[Wrestling/{{TNA}} TNA's Steel Asylum]], both of which add more opponents, more steel and chain, and more opportunity for [[BloodierAndGorier bloodshed]] and [[GameBreakingInjury injury.]] Remember, kids, ProfessionalWrestling is fake, but the odds of getting hurt are real. Just ask MickFoley.

** The Japanese heels, too. WWE aren't shy about playing up the YellowPeril gimmick for all it's worth.



** Finally, we have – [[SeriousBusiness don’t laugh]] – the Divas, and those of the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression eras in particular. As harmless and even cute as they were supposed to be, the young women of those days displayed an aggressive sexuality that was probably very disconcerting to younger viewers raised in puritanical households or who simply weren’t exposed to that sort of thing much. [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny And for a teenage male just beginning to discover those kinds of “feelings” and having an ambivalent attitude about them, it was probably much worse.]] It didn’t matter how much of a “good girl” Wrestling/TorrieWilson was, because [[GoodBadGirl she was still dead-set on getting you to lust after her]]. Not to mention the, uh, ''physical'' features of the Divas, which could be downright grotesque to innocent minds squeamish about nudity and such. Just think of Wrestling/{{Sable}} at ''Fully Loaded'' in 1998. (“Mommy, why is that lady’s chest falling off? And why is it changing color?”)
