* Layla and the body scissors. It's a move that involves basically wrapping your legs around the opponent's stomach. And Layla does it facing her opponents. And blatantly makes it look like she's dry humping them. She's also got a bit of a reputation for groping her opponents during pins.

* Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s Most Intimate Relationships Revealed segment on ''Raw'' when JerrySpringer [[GuestHost hosted]] was very much this trope. It started with Jerry revealing that Wrestling/KellyKelly [[MySecretPregnancy was secretly pregnant]]. Kelly reveals that she had a few drinks with Wrestling/SantinoMarella and things happened. After Santino declared that he was the father, Kelly revealed that she needed someone to finish the job, [[Wrestling/MichaelCole MICHAEL COLE]]. This results in the possibility that Wrestling/JerryLawler may be the father, but Springer shoots that down because [[DirtyOldMan Jerry likes to pick up his chicks from recess]]. This brings out the Wrestling/BellaTwins and Nikki reveals that [[HalfIdenticalTwins Brie is a man]], resulting in a {{Catfight}}. Jerry steers that topic back to Kelly, and this brings out [[PecFlex Chris Masters]] to reveal that [[YourCheatingHeart he slept with Kelly]], and this brings out his very angry girlfriend Wrestling/EveTorres who also reveals she had an affair with [[TheCasanova THE GREAT KHALI!]] With [[DysfunctionJunction almost all of the comedy characters accounted for]], Jerry Springer reveals that he has the pregnancy test results back. Santino [[AnatomicallyImpossibleSex questions this possibility seeing as though this only happened three days ago]], and Springer simply says, [[{{Handwave}} "I'm Jerry Springer."]] The results reveal the father to be Wrestling/{{Hornswoggle}} and this is too much for [[EverybodyHasStandards Jerry Springer of all people]], and he begins to leave in disgust. Jerry Lawler then reveals that the entire segment was a [[IWasJustJoking prank]] and that the Great Khali probably does not even know what's happening. Khali's translator says that Khali [[AudienceSurrogate felt like the audience]] in that this was a [[LampshadeHanging giant waste of time]]. To close out the segment, Lawler turns the tables on Jerry and reveals Springer's secret fling, [[DirtyOldWoman MAE YOUNG]]! RAW goes to a commercial as [[{{Squick}} Springer makes out with Mae]].

* The Attitude era was all about the WWF trying to push the envelope further and further in an attempt to draw viewers from Wrestling/{{WCW}}. It finally got scaled back slightly when the Parents Television Council started threatening lawsuits and ended for good with the PG era.

* Speaking of the Attitude Era, we have The Godfather, played by Charles Wright, he of Papa Shango and Kama "the Supreme Fighting Machine" fame. With the "crash TV" format set in stone, it was probably only a matter of time before there was a wrestling pimp. To that end, The Godfather came out with PimpDuds and at least 5 or 6 "hoes" every week, and would cut promos about smoking blunts and then offer his would-be opponent a night with the hoes instead of a proper match. Unsurprisingly, this got huge reactions from younger male fans.

** UnfortunateImplications: French people are comparable to America-haters, racists, and anti-Christians?
*** This occurred not long after the war in Iraq started. Since France didn't want to go to war, France became something of a punchline (this occurred around the same time as the "Freedom Fries" fiasco.)

* During Wrestling/NormanSmiley's match with Michael Shane (w[=/=]Wrestling/{{Francine}}) at ''Wrestling/{{MLW}} Revolutions,'' May 9, 2003, Francine, of course, got involved and gave him the [[Wrestling/SeanWaltman Bronco Buster]] in the corner. Norman countered by grabbing the front of Francine's shorts and simulating oral sex. It didn't help, as Norman still lost the match.

* Two words: '''Wrestling/AJLee'''. She's put into a match against Kane so what does she do? She jumps into his arms and smooches him for at least two minutes. This is Kane we're talking about - the man who set Jim Ross on fire ForTheEvulz. And after the kiss is over, he simply walks out of the match.
** There really is no level AJ won't stoop to. She got another one over on Kane by dressing up as him and skipping around the ring during another of his matches. And she avoided any potential break up backlash by simply being ''too'' crazy for him to want anything to do with her.
** She managed to two-time Daniel Bryan and CMPunk and keep them coming back for more. As in she literally made out with each of them seconds after each other, with the other a couple of feet away.
** Her tweets also invoke this trope. She rather proudly boasts about airport security people playing with her underwear in her suitcases and her own public humiliations.

* In 1991, Barry Darsow (formerly Smash of the tag team Demolition) was repackaged by the Wrestling/{{WWE}} as "Repo Man", which was ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. A horrible gimmick that was presumably aimed at provoking cheap heat from deadbeats, Darsow played the character so [[CardCarryingVillain ridiculously over the top]] that it was [[SoBadItsGood hard to hate him]].
* Every single thing that DGenerationX has ever done. There is not enough time in a week to list all of the jaw-dropping, boundary-crossing hijinks.
* In late 2005, WWE was at a loss for how to make the crowd root for JohnCena and boo KurtAngle. They tried all of the cheapest, most offensive tricks in the wrestling playbook to make Angle the bad guy: he began bashing America and was given an Arabic manager to interfere in his matches, all the while playing the xenophobic angle to attract as much cheap heat as possible. It failed because nobody was buying an anti-American KurtAngle, and eventually Angle [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] the difficulty in getting people to hate him by going even ''further'' into offensive territory. The resulting promo is generally held to be hilarious because nobody can take it seriously:
-->'''KurtAngle''': First of all, I'd like to say that: I hope the US loses the war in Iraq. And, uh, while I'm at it, I think the greatest country in the world is...France! Y'know, truth be told, I'm not a very big fan of...[[BuffySpeak "the black people."]] And if I would go back in time, the one person in history I'd like to make tap out would have to be...Jesus! ...The point is, I can say ''anything I want'' to these idiots, and they'll ''still'' cheer for me!
