* Many former prominent WWF superstars whose passing was announced on a TV show. ''WWERaw'' will sometimes air well-done tributes to former stars, with vintage video clips and a voiceover highlighting career accomplishments, set to light piano music. If the passed superstar was especially prominent, a current star may be asked to comment. Sometimes, the tearjerker moment sets in during the ten-bell salute.

* Near the end of the 11/3/2014 Raw, Wrestling/RandyOrton had essentially defected from Wrestling/TheAuthority, releasing ''months'' of pent-up aggression over being forced to ally with SethRollins, a lack of faith from The Authority going into WrestleMania, and never receiving his true one-on-one rematch for the WWE World Title, with his relentless assault on Rollins and the Authority's goons. When they finally have him brought down after a Rollins curb-stomp on the announce table, Stephanie tells TripleH to "finish it"...and Trips looks absolutely ''despondent'' at the idea.
** Regardless of their sordid history, TripleH was the one who brought Orton into Evolution, anointed him the "Face of the WWE" and did everything he could to convince Stephanie and the rest of the Authority that Orton could still be a productive member of their "family." When he uttered the line "Finish it", you could really sense the bitterness as he realizes there are no more ways he can justify Orton being with them anymore; as he and Steph walked away from the aftermath, he never even turns around because he can't bear seeing the loss of someone he's come to call a part of his "family."
** And note TripleH doesn't even lash back out at Orton for hitting him before he goes after Rollins again, Hunter trying to stop the struggle from reaching a critical point. The look of hesitation in Trips' eyes before he gives the order pretty much says, "Randy, why are you making me do this?"

* Barely 24 hours after defeating Seth Rollins to become the inaugural WWE Universal Champion at ''[[Wrestling/SummerSlam SummerSlam 2016]]'', FinnBalor is forced to relinquish the title due to a shoulder injury that would leave him shelved for up to six months. His speech the following night on the 08/22/16 ''Raw'' feels uncomfortably like a retirement speech. This gets even worse when you remember that this is mere weeks after his main roster debut upon being drafted from ''[[Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} NXT]]''.

* As much shit as Zack Ryder gets [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xce4xyrmx4Q this]] interview posted on WWE's own Youtube channel about his battle with cancer is tearjerking. It's even harder when you've actually dealt with cancer yourself, or know friends or family who were/are battling cancer themselves.

* On the 02/08/16 RAW, hearing Daniel Bryan's retirement speech. There was literally people in the crowd bawling when he announced his retirement. It in especially got sad when he brought up his father as well. It also was so hard to watch seeing as Daniel was even trying to hold back tears as best as he could. Watch the speech for yourself, it's quite sad.

* The implosion of Wrestling/TheShield, as well as much of the fall-out. Many of the group's fans had come to enjoy the extremely tight-knit friendship and brotherhood between Wrestling/DeanAmbrose, Wrestling/RomanReigns, and Wrestling/SethRollins, and while everyone knew the team had to break up sooner or later, the way it ([[ShockingSwerve abruptly]]) did seemed specifically designed to break those fans' hearts in order to get ''major'' heat for [[FaceHeelTurn Seth]]. He rubs salt in the wounds by claiming they were [[FalseFriend never really his brothers]], just business partners, and feeling no guilt or regret over stabbing them in the back. Even more depressing is the the theory found [[Fridge/TheShield here]] that the reason why Roman put off going after Seth himself and [[TheArtifact kept]] many of the Shield's signature aspects (theme music, attire, entrance through the crowd, a one-man version of the Symbol of Excellence,[[note]]Each member of the Shield extending their fists in a sort of three-man fist-bump[[/note]] a variant of the "Believe in the Shield" CatchPhrase, and still going after the goals they had before they broke up) is because he is in denial and trying to stick to the same routine he and his friends had to avoid facing the full reality of the situation with them.

**Heck, just seeing everyone trying to hold back tears(sometimes unsuccessfully) during Eddie's tribute video is a tearjerker.
