* The feud {{Wrestling/Edge}} had with Wrestling/TheUndertaker in 2008. He went from [[TheStoic a rather calm and collected fellow]] to an AxCrazy raving lunatic. Edge performed the breakdown without any assistance from The Undertaker at all, when some LaserGuidedKarma caught up to him when he cheated the recently drafted to RAW Wrestling/{{Batista}} out of the World Heavyweight Title. The next night on RAW he interrupted the farewell speech of the recently drafted Wrestling/JimRoss to put himself in the spotlight, mocking the superstars of RAW by pointing out that the red brand no longer had a world title (WWE Champion Wrestling/TripleH had been drafted to ''Wrestling/SmackDown'' the previous week), then stating that they would never see him on RAW again. Just as he was leaving however, an understandably angry Batista appeared and proceeded to give Edge a well-deserved NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, ending with a Batista Bomb in the middle of the ring. Not long afterwards, recently drafted to RAW Mr. Money in the Bank Wrestling/CMPunk ([[{{Irony}} who would later on become the second man to cash in the [=MiTB=] briefcase after Edge himself]]) appeared, cashed in the case, and proceeded to win his first world title. Edge lost it and ended his engagement to Wrestling/VickieGuerrero, though they eventually got back together. Then, towards the end of the wedding reception three weeks later, Triple H revealed that Edge had cheated on Vickie with their wedding planner, future WWE diva Wrestling/AliciaFox. Vickie got mad, mad enough that she reinstated the Undertaker, even so far as pitting them against each other in a ''Hell in a Cell match'' at ''Wrestling/SummerSlam''. Edge freaked, before driving himself into becoming completely unhinged, only to lose against 'Taker and sent to hell, disappearing for three straight months before reappearing at ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries'' later that year.
* Wrestling/EddieGuerrero used this as part of a FaceHeelTurn in 2005. He claimed to be the biological father of Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr's son, Dominic, among other things. It was truly a sight to behold, since Eddie had been a face for so long that he had to nearly take Rey's head off to get fans to boo him.
* Wrestling/VickieGuerrero gets one when Edge gets her fired after she abused her power to make his life a living nightmare. She breaks down in tears and starts begging everyone, even a cameraman to help get her job back. She finally ends up begging at Edge's feet for him to help her. He doesn't listen. On the July 8, 2013 episode of RAW, Guerrero does another one, throwing a fit after she was "fired" by [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon Stephanie [=McMahon=]]].
* Wrestling/HulkHogan has been showing signs of this since "the network" began interfering with his Immortal stable's domination of Wrestling/{{TNA}}. While he puts on a facade of a SmugSnake in the ring, a backstage scene had him in a paranoid rage over the networks interfering, claiming they "know too much" about how wrestling works and demanding Eric do something about it. It's been getting worse each week and Eric has also began to head into a VillainousBreakdown of his own for the same reason.
* Wrestling/MichaelCole has one on the April 11th Raw. After Wrestling/JerryLawler defeats Wrestling/JackSwagger, earning himself a match at ''Extreme Rules 2011'' with Cole, with Jerry choosing the match, Cole, for the first time in weeks, is left completely speechless. After a few minutes of silence, he snaps and explodes on his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Jack Swagger, blaming him for everything and slapping him. This instantly comes back to bite him when Jerry reveals their match will be a tag team match, and Cole's partner is the man he just ticked off.
** Had another one on the July 27, 2011 episode when Wrestling/TripleH reveals he'd rehired Wrestling/JimRoss. Michael goes on a major tangent, screaming his head off about how he refused to work with Ross at all. Too bad for him, TripleH was already about nine steps ahead of him and knew he'd probably do that.
* On the May 23, 2011 episode of Raw, [[Wrestling/KiaStevens Kharma]], a monster heel Diva who had been tormenting and bullying the Divas for weeks, comes out to the ring as per usual. But this time, she finds the entire Divas locker room surrounding her, having been fed up with her attacks, showing no fear. While confident at first, she breaks down in tears and has an emotional breakdown when she realizes they no longer fear her and she can't beat all of them at once. The announcers even refer to it as a breakdown afterwards.
** Actually, that wasn't the reason why she had that breakdown. In the next week, she reveals that she's pregnant and will be out of action for about a year. She gains sympathy from the audience as she talks about how she made it here in WWE.
* Wrestling/CMPunk has one on the July 11, 2011 episode of Raw. After showing his MagnificentBastard self the whole night, Wrestling/JohnCena comes out and gives Punk a perfect KirkSummation, calling Punk out on his chronic {{Hypocrite}} status and asking him an ArmorPiercingQuestion: if you care so much about the WWE Universe, why are you walking out on them? Punk's response is to get furious and try to find something to one up Cena's arguement, but his comeback ultimately devolves into trying to pin his leaving on JohnCena, which due to the contract he had wrote up, no longer makes any sense because he'd been offered everything he'd wanted that Cena had on a silver platter and kept MovingTheGoalPosts (something Cena had already called him out on), supporting Cena's point of him being a {{Hypocrite}} instead of countering it. He ultimately tears up the contract in anger, doing ''exactly'' what Cena was calling him out on.
** He has another one in January 2013 after [[spoiler: his loss of the WWE Championship to [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]]. He went ''absolutely ballistic'' the next night on Raw, outright screaming at the fans in attendance and attacking everyone at ringside. Far as he's concerned, he's still the champion]].
* [[Wrestling/RonKillings R-Truth]]'s FaceHeelTurn consists of this. He lost his title shot and then...[[SanitySlippage well his mind]]. He's been getting steadily more and more insane since then.
* Wrestling/MarkHenry has one after being beaten by {{Sheamus}}. He ''snaps'' and goes ''even more berserk'' than he [[BloodKnight already was]].
* CM Punk, himself an earlier victim of a breakdown in 2011 (see above), causes Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim Raw General Manager Wrestling/JohnLaurinaitis to suffer one hell of a breakdown, as he unleashed the mother of all [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "The Reason You Suck" Speeches]] to the guy on the January 16, 2012 edition of Raw.
* [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]] infamously suffered a breakdown in 2007 after losing the ECW Championship at ''One Night Stand 2007''[[note]]Though one could argue it began after his hair was shaved at WrestleMania by Donald Trump[[/note]], with Vince acting increasingly erratic in following weeks. This ultimately culminated on a Raw that was billed as "Vince [=McMahon=] Appreciation Night", where the complete opposite happened and anyone and everyone got their shots in on Vince. The night would end his "death" after his limousine exploded[[note]]Of course, the untimely Chris Benoit incident put the kibosh on the angle before it could truly continue on.[[/note]]
* On the account of failing to win the WWE Championship on several occasions, as well as being left at the altar by (eventual ''Raw'' General Manager) Wrestling/AJLee, [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] had spiraled into a breakdown of unimagined proportions in 2012, snapping at fans for "stealing" his signature BigYes chants, and instead embracing "NO! NO! NO!" as his catchphrase.
* After messing with Wrestling/ZackRyder to get what she wants, {{Manipulative B|astard}}itch Wrestling/EveTorres tells the Wrestling/BellaTwins to record her sucking up to Wrestling/JohnCena and use him like she did with Ryder. But the Bella Twins [[EvenEvilHasStandards look a bit nervous about what she said and refuse the offer]]. So she turns around...and there's Cena, who had heard the entire thing. Later that night, she comes out to him and pretends to be upset about him rejecting her, but Cena sees through this act and calls her out, roaring "I lost a broski to a hoeski!" And when she starts to throw herself at him, he gets her away by saying this:
-->'''John Cena''': For your information, I'm disease-free. I'd like to keep it that way!
* Whenever one of his guys would lose championships or fail to beat Wrestling/HulkHogan, [[Wrestling/BobbyHeenan Bobby "The Brain" Heenan]] would always suffer a meltdown and rant and rave about how he's been robbed and make up all sorts of excuses about what happened. A spectacular one came at ''[=WrestleMania=] VIII'' (1992) when "Macho Man" Wrestling/RandySavage rallied back against Wrestling/RicFlair and Heenan goes from smug and confident to breaking down and panicking with each blow The Macho Man connected and losing it when Savage uses one of Flair's own tricks (hooking the trunks) to win the WWE Championship (then called the WW'''F''' Championship).
* On the July 26, 2013 episode of ''WWE [=SmackDown!=]''', Wrestling/DamienSandow threw a temper tantrum after his former BFF Wrestling/CodyRhodes threw his Money in the Bank briefcase for a future World Heavyweight Championship match into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GBZcxqby-k the Gulf of Mexico.]]
* Both Triple H and Stephanie [=McMahon=] went through one during the 3/10/14 broadcast of RAW when Daniel Bryan staged an Occupy Raw protest in the ring with his fans in order to get HHH to accept a match with him at Wrestlemania 30. Stephanie goes ballistic and orders Bryan and the fans to leave the ring to no avail. After repeated attempts to keep the show going, Triple H then finally agrees to the match, only for Bryan to reveal his second demand: If he beats Hunter at Wrestlemania, he'll be added to the title match with Randy Orton and Batista. Cue Triple H ''completely losing his shit'' as he has to held back by security to avoid him tearing Bryan's head off.
