* ArmorPiercingSlap: In XX, Wrestling/TrishStratus gives two of these to Wrestling/ChrisJericho, which then allows Wrestling/{{Christian}} to defeat him in their match, thus ushering in her FaceHeelTurn.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: When discussing bad [=WrestleManias=], ''2'' is given a mulligan despite some issues with the card, due to the still-experimental nature of the event at the time, as well as the gimmicky and one-time-only simulcast from ''three'' different venues, with closed circuit TV being used for folks at one location to watch the other two-thirds of the show.
** The first Wretlemania has closing credits.

** 34: John Cena [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor got what he'd been after for weeks]] when The Undertaker came out and faced him... and squashed him in less than 3 minutes.

* AccidentalAthlete: At WM 34, Wrestling/BraunStrowman was to face [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Cesaro]] and Wrestling/{{Sheamus}} for the ''Raw'' tag team title... but didn't have a partner. He went into the audience and picked out a 10-year-old boy named Nicholas[[note]]later revealed to be the son of WWE referee John Cone[[/note]] as his partner. Nicholas was tagged in early in the match, and had the presence of mind to immediately tag in Strowman, who rampaged through both opponents to win the title. (They would give up the titles on the following night's ''Raw''.)

* CallBack: At ''[=WrestleMania=] XXX'', [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Cesaro]] won the André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal by scoop-slamming Wrestling/TheBigShow over the top rope - much like Hulk Hogan scoop-slamming André to hit him with the [[FinishingMove Atomic Leg Drop]] back at ''[=WrestleMania III=]''. Bonus points, Big Show was billed as André's son when he first debuted.

* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: "The Streak" of Wrestling/TheUndertaker was explicitly stated time and time again as having been a greater accomplishment than winning a world title ''and'' a guaranteed one-way ticket to the WWE Hall of Fame, and that if someone ever managed it, they'd be able to brag about it for the rest of their career. And then, at ''[=WrestleMania=] XXX'', Wrestling/BrockLesnar shockingly did end The Streak.

* ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans: 30 was set in New Orleans, and most of the TV spots were Mardi Gras themed. However during the event itself this wasn't [[DownplayedTrope really played up]]--Bray Wyatt had a Mardi Gras themed entrance and Layla wore a carnival mask, but nothing else really.
** 34, on the other hand, modeled the ''entire stage'' after a [[http://cdn.sescoops.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/34.jpg carnival mask]].

* RealSongThemeTune:
** ''[=WrestleMania=]'' often has at least one live musical guest. Usually a singer performs "America the Beautiful", and sometimes a band gives a wrestler an [[ThemeMusicPowerUp Entrance Music Power-Up]], e.g. [[Music/{{Motorhead}} Motörhead]], who've appeared twice, playing Wrestling/TripleH's music (though Motörhead's lead singer Lemmy [[{{Mondegreen}} hadn't correctly sung the lyrics to Triple H's theme]] in either of his two appearances), and P.O.D., who appeared at ''[=WrestleMania=] 22'' playing Wrestling/{{Rey Mysterio|Jr}}'s music. Here's a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_celebrities_involved_with_WrestleMania#Musicians full list.]]
** Also, the Honky Tonk Man and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine embarrassing themselves at ''[=WrestleMania=] VI'', pretending to be an actual group called "Rhythm and Blues." May very well be the worst musical performance ever to be recorded.

* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: The summation of the RAW commentary team's reaction to the RAW Tag Team Title Match at ''[=WrestleMania=] 34'', wherein the challenger Wrestling/BraunStrowman announced that his mystery partner would be a member of the WWE Universe (i.e. a fan from the crowd). Said reaction increased when Braun proceeded to choose a ''ten-year old kid'' (named Nicholas) as his partner, again when Braun actually ''tagged him in'', and culminating the ultimate reactions of disbelief when they ''won'' the match.

** At Wrestlemania XXX, Triple H made his entrance on a throne, dressed as a king, with several women flanking him. One of those women, Charlotte Flair, made the same entrance at Wrestlemania 34, herself on the throne.
