* 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.

** When you think about it, Randy being chosen as the "Face" of the company was very strange. Yes, Randy had the looks and the lineage -- but Randy is, no matter how you look at it, ''old''. Not "old" old like Ric Flair, but old in the sense that he's been in the company for a ''very'' long time. He has, more than once, consistently proven that he can't handle the responsibility, in spite of being one of the WWE's biggest stars, because he can't stay out of his own way, and the fans, no matter how much they love him, want someone ''new''. Plus, he isn't the ''only'' guy in the WWE that has the characteristics that the Authority wishes to have in their chosen champion. Randy being chosen was likely Hunter's attempt to repair their relationship, which has been strained for ''years'' thanks to Evolution's messy breakup, and Randy being ousted from a stable by Hunter ''once again'' means they're back at square one, and it will be a ''very'' long time before Randy will ever truly forgive him.

** The one for [[{{Unperson}} Chris Benoit]]? [[HarsherInHindsight Not so much]]. It was a massive tearjerker...at the time.
