Big No: Professional Wrestling
  • Often, by a face-leaning play-by-play announcer when a heel wrestler is about to commit a heinous deed or win a championship title following rulebreaking, with the trope-making "NO!" coming right as the act is carried out.
    • One particularly famous example was The Hart Foundation winning the WWF Tag Team Championships from the British Bulldogs after Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart had been allowed (thanks to biased refereeing from Danny Davis, whom the Harts had in their back pocket) to double-team Davey Boy Smith; Vince McMahon shouted "No, NO, NO!!!!" as Davis made a fast three-count on Smith, the perfect compliment to heel announcer Jesse Ventura cackling evily in celebrating the title win.
    • More than two years earier, McMahon's other "Big No" moment came when he tried — in vain — to stop Kamala from eating a live chicken on the set of WWF Tuesday Night Titans.
  • One time "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase tried to buy the WWE World Heavyweight Title from Hulk Hogan in the late 80's. Hulk Hogan's response?
  • Almost parallel to the rise in popularity of Daniel Bryan's YES! mantra, the fans began chanting NO! every time they saw something they didn't like, and alternated between YES! and NO! when a face and a heel (respectively) traded blows in a slugfest. (The more traditional chants were "YAY!" and "BOO!")
  • When Vince McMahon was asked if he wanted "Stone Cold" Steve Austin as WWF Champion, he responded "That's not just a no that's a, OOOOOOOHHHH HEEEEEELLL NOOOOOO!!!"
  • During their famous "I Quit" steel cage match at Starrcade 85, Magnum TA and Tully Blanchard had several. One would hold the microphone to their opponent's mouth and yell, "Say it!" and the other would deliver the Big No.
  • Double NOOOOOOO from Triple H as he sees the referee for his next match.
  • There was an attempt to turn Eddie Guerrero heel on Smackdown by having him throw Yoshiro Tajiri through the windshield of his low rider on the mistaken belief Tajiri had "touched" it. The following night when Eddie came out to explain his actions he asked if they blamed him for what he did.
