Ever since his Face-Heel Turn
in 2011, R-Truth has been a source of many memes
and a periodic belly laugh. note
- At the Raw after the Capitol Punishment PPV, R-Truth, The Miz, and Christian have a discussion over who got screwed the most during said PPV, and said discussion devolves into this.
- From his backstage promo at the 2011 Survivor Series PPV: "I was out there, I was outside Madison Square Garden. I saw all those pidgeons staring up at The Rock and Cena (billboard). I screamed at those pigeons. I said 'Hey pigeons! The Rock and Cena are gonna lose tonight!' You know what those pigeons said to me? *Beat* Nothing. They're pigeons. Pigeons don't talk, all they do is crap."
- That beat was actually Matt Striker cooing as a response to Truth's presumably hypothetical question.
- How funny was it? The MSG crowd gave him an ovation as he finished his promo out of sheer appreciation of the hilarity.
- R-Truth's confrontation with Jimmy Hart, where he accuses him for being a "Little Jimmy".
- When John Cena was mentioning the fact that they used to be cool before feuding. R-Truth's response?
- Confederate soldier R-Truth. It made "Stone Cold" Steve Austin drop everything and leave the skit.
- R-Truth's short promo before MITB 2011, where he expresses his fear of heights and spiders. Aswell as this little gem: "THAT BREIFCASE IS GON GET GOT!"
- "I GOT OKIE DOKE'D BY LITTLE JIMMY!!!"
- R-Truth getting interviewed by Josh Matthews. Insanity at its finest!
- After being betrayed by Miz in November 2011 (right after they lost to Cena/Rock at Survivor Series), Truth made his Heel-Face Return the last week of the year - naturally, interrupting a Miz promo and beating the hell out of him. The following week (1/2/12), Miz appeals to John Laurinaitis - the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and the interim GM of RAW - for help because Miz feels, in his words, like a sitting duck. Miz, dissatisfied with Laurinaitis' efforts, storms off. Enter R-Truth from another angle, staring at the camera with his eyes popping out off his skull. Suddenly, he tucks his arms and starts flapping...and quacking. Seriously.
- On the Raw show before the Elimination Chamber, the Raw Superstars who where gonna be in the Chamber had a debate on weather or not they win. When it gets to Truth, he in his own little world, thinks it's a Presidential debate...or perhaps a sports press conference (he mentions trading Dolph Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero at one point), or maybe a trial. Watch the glorious insanity right here. The clip starts at Truths part.
- At one point, Dolph finally has enough and calls the entire debate a joke, only to be shut down by R-Truth's patented brand of Insane Troll Logic. "I WILL NOT BE TALKED DOWN TO BY A MAN NAMED AFTER FLIPPER! KIKI! KIKI! KIKIKIKI!" Dolph's face of utter disbelief is classic.
- A blink-and-you'll-miss-it one: "I asked myself, I said 'Self...who do you think is trying to get you?'"
- WWE showing a pre-taped picture-in-picture R-Truth interview as he makes his way to the ring in real time; R-Truth starts cutting a promo like everyone has done in a PIP interview since the 80s before Truth stops himself, peers into the camera, and asks: "Wait...who am I talking to?"
- R-Truth's Disneyland trip. The last line kills it.
- The entire Milwalkee incident. Bonus points for Michael Cole chanting with the crowd, only for them to IMMEDIATELY stop.
- This was paid off with one HELL of a Brick Joke, several years later, when R-Truth was featured in a match in Milwaukee on an episode of Smackdown. R-Truth opens his promo with, "Where am I?"
- "R-Truth! That's R dash Truth!"
- His short-lived stint as "R Ziggler", serving as Dolph's stunt-double and tag partner in a hilarious Take That to The Miz and Damien Mizdow.
- His participation in the Intercontinental Title hijinks leading up to Wrestlemania. Basically, a bunch of midcarders fighting over the belt. Not the actual title of IC Champion, mind you (although most of them have their own storyline claim to a match with the current champion, which is eventually meant to be resolved in a ladder match at Wrestlemania), the Intercontinental Title Belt. (Mostly, this consists mostly of a bunch of guys physically stealing the belt from one another.''
- The 3/2/15 RAW during this stretch saw R-Truth on guest commentary. He and the regular commentary team call back to one of his funnier promos. Apparently he's still afraid of heights and spiders, and still has a hard time differentiating between "acrophobia" (heights) and "arachnophobia" (spiders).
