* BullyingADragon: During the infamous "Plane Ride From Hell", Hennig ([[AlcoholInducedIdiocy thoroughly sloshed]] at the time) saw fit to threaten '''''[[Wrestling/BrockLesnar BRRRROCK LESNARRRRRR]]''''' during the latter's initial push.... on ''the plane''. Brock, new to the business, couldn't make heads or tails of it, but his seating partner Wrestling/PaulHeyman said that if he didn't answer Curt's challenge, he would never live it down backstage. (What is this, prison?) Anyway, Brock beat him senseless and that was the end of it.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Wrestling/CMPunk's stint as a commentator is very much like Hennig's when he was put on the ''Raw'' broadcast team with [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]] while rehabbing an injury. * SoBadItsGood: WWF aired vignettes to promote the debut of Mr.Perfect, which showed him excelling at a variety of sports to a ridiculous extent and looking smug while doing it. The vignettes did work, however, as Perfect became one of the most hated heels in the company. ** NarmCharm: It was a dorky gimmick when you get right down to it, but Curt Hennig was one of the few men in the business, if not the ''only'' man, that could've pulled it off.

* OlderThanTheyThink: CMPunk's stint as a commentator is very much like Hennig's when he was put on the ''Raw'' broadcast team with VinceMcMahon while rehabbing an injury.
