* Fighting Network RINGS founder Wrestling/AkiraMaeda found racists insults hurled his way by US service men at a military base, causing him to beat up four of them and make them vow to never insult Japanese people again. Maeda himself was Korean and bullied for it his entire life until [[Wrestling/AllenCoage Bad News Brown]] encouraged him not to take it anymore.
* During Wrestlemania 6, Wrestling/BobbyHeenan slapped Wrestling/AndreTheGiant for losing a {{tag team}} match against Wrestling/{{Demolition}}. Andre went bezerk and knocked Heenan out.
* [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder NWO]] member Scott Norton interfered in the match between Wrestling/{{Psicosis}} and Tokyo Magnum on the August 3, 1998 ''Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro''. He then called out any regular Wrestling/{{WCW}} wrestlers for a match. [[Wrestling/HughMorrus "The Laughing Man" Hugh Morrus]] ran down, saying, "Somebody's got to do this," with manager [[Wrestling/JimmyHart "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart]] [[LampshadeHanging telling him that he shouldn't mess with the NWO]]. Of course, Norton [[FinishingMove powerbombed]] Morrus, thus proving Hart right.
* At the 1999 Fukumen World League 1999, Dirtbike Kid not only refused to wear his mask on what was explicitly a show for masked wrestlers but {{no s|ell}}old Wrestling/TheGreatSasuke's spin kick, which was the finish they agreed on. So Sasuke kicked Dirtbike Kid without holding back [[BoringButPractical and made him tap to a neck crank]].
* Wrestling/KurtAngle pouring milk on Wrestling/TheUndertaker's motor cycle during the June 6th, 2000 episode of Smackdown.
* Wrestling/ChrisJericho's debut in WWE/WWF had him interrupting Wrestling/TheRock. That's one thing that few superstars, let alone newbies like Jericho, have the guts to do. However, his second appearance had him interrupting '''Wrestling/TheUndertaker'''.
* [[Wrestling/ShaneDouglas "The Franchise" Shane Douglas]] called out Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} on the September 4, 2000 ''Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro''. As soon as Goldberg's music hit, [[EyeTake Shane's eyes popped]] in a true OhCrap[=/=]MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment. Shane recruited the Natural Born Thrillers (Shawn Stasiak, Chuck Palumbo, Mike Sanders, Mark Jindrak, Sean O'Haire, Reno [Rick Cornell] and Johnny the Bull [John "Johnny Stamboli"/"[[SdrawkcabName Rellik]]" Hugger] doing a weak UrExample of what Wrestling/TheNexus would be ten years later) to help him, and, even with '''8 GUYS''' against him, Goldberg was still able to win the match.
* At ''Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}} Sand in the Vaseline'', Wrestling/LarrySweeney, at barely heavyweight, blamed Wrestling/ManaThePolynesianWarrior, a super heavyweight, for a loss against Lancelot and slapped him, leading to Sweeney getting a Samoan drop.
* In 2007, Wrestling/SantinoMarella would regularly mock Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin: mangling Austin's catchphrases, cosplaying as him while acting like an idiot, bashing Austin's movies and declaring him a horrible actor. When Austin finally confronts him face-to-face, he forces Santino to admit that he never actually watched any of his movies. Austin offers Santino a DVD of ''The Condemned'' and requests that he watch it before evaluating his acting skills, but Santino [[TooDumbToLive throws it down and stomps on it]]. Cue beatdown.
* This is pretty much Kellie Skater's gimmick, staring in QLD and especially after she joined Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}'s roster in 2009. She is a good bit larger than the average woman and obvious good enough to get the invite but is nowhere near as big and strong as she thinks she is. Her taunting of [=LuFisto=], whom she stands noticeably taller than [[PintSizedPowerHouse but only outweighs by a single kilogram]] is but a mild example.
* Wrestling/MichaelCole. After his 2010 FaceHeelTurn, he's bullied Wrestling/JohnCena, Wrestling/JerryLawler (his arch enemy), Wrestling/JimRoss, [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] (''twice''), [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], the WWE Divas (''all of them''), and even his own [[TheDragon Dragon]] Wrestling/JackSwagger (making him a somewhat literal example of the trope) ''to their faces''. All of them could easily beat Cole to a bloody pulp if they wanted to, and half of them actually did. Cole also regularly mocked Wrestling/BookerT, Wrestling/ZackRyder, and Wrestling/TedDibiaseJr (following [=Dibiase's=] 2011 HeelFaceTurn).
** The WWE Divas deserve special mention here. He seemed to save his venom for two very specific Divas, Wrestling/NatalyaNeidhart and Wrestling/EveTorres. While most of the Divas are accused of being FauxActionGirl Eye Candy, he decided to pick on possibly two of the most dangerous of them. Natalya is a veteran wrestler and a member of the Hart WrestlingFamily. Eve is a trained Gracie Jiu Jitsu fighter, and is (in Real Life) dating a member of the Gracie Family. He decided not only to bully the two most dangerous female Dragons, he also chooses the two most-well connected.
* In the early months of 2012, Wrestling/CodyRhodes made it his mission in life to mock Wrestling/TheBigShow, calling him a fat loser and continuously showing clips of Show's embarrassing moments. No matter how many times Show catches up to him and gives him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, he just won't stop. Come ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 28'', Rhodes ends up paying the price, as he not only got KO'd by Show, but he lost the Intercontinental Title as a result. Show then returned the favor to Rhodes, showing humiliating moments during his matches.
* Wrestling/DamienSandow interrupting the Wrestling/DGenerationX Army reunion. A rare occurrence where the bully openly acknowledges the consequences beforehand.
* This Wrestling/PrimeTimePlayers song is another self acknowledged example
-->"Big Zeke ain't got not cuts! Big Zeke ain't got no cuts! He's big, he's strong, but he ain't got no cuts!"
* "Portugal's Perfect Athlete" Shanna defeated [[Wrestling/BlackRose La Rosa Negra]] once and another victory at SHINE 20 seemed all but certain except for the fact Shanna insisted on provoking La Rosa's self appointed bodyguard, Noemi Bosques, a then undefeated boxer who was completely fresh besides exasperation at what Shanna [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty got]] [[UnnecessaryRoughness away]] [[IKnowMaddenKombat with.]] An EasilyDistractedReferee can work both ways though, so when Shanna decided to put her hands on Bosques she was quickly floored, allowing La Rosa Negra to come back.
* This a frequent, real life occurence in locker rooms, where bullying vets often finding themselves knocked back by smaller wrestlers they thought woud be easy prey. Examples include Creator/JohnBradshawLayfield ({{WWE}}) (who was used as a backstage enforcer by Vince McMahon himself) once getting punched out by Steve Blackmon (a martial arts expert) and Buff Bagwell ({{WCW}}) getting knocked on his ass by Earnest "The Cat" Miller (also a martial artist) after trying to push him around.
