At TNA Hard Justice 2006, the arena had to be evacuated mid-show due to a fire. Desperate to fill time until the Orlando Fire Department gave the all-clear and allowed the TNA wrestlers, staff, and fans back into the arena, Mike Tenay interviewed "The Alpha Male" Monty Brown. The result? The Best. Promo. Ever.
It wasn't just Monty's promo that made this night hilarious. The show's opening pyro display had literally set the ceiling on fire. The fans had all kinds of fun with this, chanting "You can't see us!" as a giant cloud of extinguisher enveloped the ring during the opening match (which Eric Young and Johnny Devine worked to a finish), and later "No more pyro!" when everyone was back inside and Abyss (who always had pyro back then) came out for his match.
The best part was when the Impact Zone started chanting "THE ROOF...THE ROOF...THE ROOF IS ON FIRE!"
Chet Lemon, Black Snow, and ring announcer Scott Steiner. This originated from an episode of Impact in January of '09, where the Main Event Mafia took over the show for around an hour. Kevin Nash (Lemon) and Booker T (Snow, doing what sounded like a hilariously awful Don West impression) proceeded to take the piss out of almost everything during an otherwise-mediocre show. Smarks were very displeased when Mike Tenay and Don West returned to the announce booth.
In 2009, the Beautiful People had ridden a crooked referee to the top of the knockouts division (both figuratively and literally). So, at the biggest show of the year, Bound For Glory, they tried to right this wrong by sending in Earl Hebner. Unfortunately, TNA did not book this with its audience in mind, which lead to chants of "You Screwed Bret!" and booing when Hebner tried to stop the Beautiful People from cheating. Note, Canadian (and best wrestler in the group) Angelina Love wasn't even involved, they were against Canadian and supremely talented Taylor Wilde and Sarita. The crowd sided with the Beautiful People simply because of Hebner!
At the 2009 Slammiversy where the referee insists Chris Sabin is in illegible for him to count a pin fall for in a King Of The Mountain match, so he lays down and lets Alex Shelly pin him and then complains about his tights being pulled as he goes the penalty box.
The Impact episode where Angle emerges from a tanning bed, only to find his clothes gone.
Angle: "Is it one of those freaks who want to sell my underwear, on Ebay!?"
After turning Jay Lethal into "Black Machismo", Kevin Nash tries to do the same thing with Sonjay Dutt by having him try on his old "Oz" and "Vinnie Vegas" costumes. When he shows up wearing the oversized "Diesel" outfit, Lethal comments (in his Macho Man voice): "Now you can step over the top rope!"
Watching Larry Zbyszko in the latest vids just burying himself deeper and deeper (calling AJ Styles a "faggot", constantly ripping on Ric Flair) is like watching a trainwreck, but Scott's running commentary on Zbyszko ("I'm so sorry, he thinks he's funny", "that makes him a bastard - sorry kids, that's the word for it") makes up for it.
Kevin Nash in the Wolfpac dressing room, a week before he turned heel onscreen: "Uh, I'm still very angry at you guys."
Kevin: (demonstrating how his hands were shaking) And I'm all - 'Scott? Do I look fucked up?'
Scott: And I'm like YES!
Pretty much any time you get Nash, Hall, and Waltman together, it's comedy gold.
During Kurt Angle and Sting's feud, there was a part where Sting's music plays and he's lowered from the ceiling. In a moment of Dangerously Genre Savvy, Kurt spears the figure in midair and puts it in the Ankle Lock, before he realizes that it's just a dummy.
This incredible limited-time offer from the Motor City Machine Guns! Dammit, if only I had known about it in 2009, then I wouldn't have wasted that extra $2000 I had on boring shit like food and bills.
The Pope is a very funny dude, but this moment comes more from his reaction. D'Angelo Dinero has an opening that consists of him pausing, looking at the sky, and having money rain down from above onto him, but ever since Immortal took over TNA and the Pope opposed them, they stopped paying for the (fake) money rain and the Pope's continued hopeful wait for the rain and his exasperated head shake as it never happens is hilarious.
The look on Jeff Hardy's face when he saw AJ and Fortune do their hand sign in front of him and then proceed to take out all of his allies, leading him alone. His dumbstruck expression can only be described by two words: Oh, Crap.
Mr. Anderson (Anderson)'s thoughts on the new TNA championship belt, designed by and for Jeff Hardy (it looks like his face, with similar strangely colored makeup patterns, and comes on a purple strap):
Mr. Anderson: I could probably stick a crayon up my ass, squat over a piece of paper, and draw a better title belt than this.
Anderson is a walking Crowning Moment Of Funny, one of the reasons he's cheered so strongly is he's able to make nearly anything absolutely hilarious.
TNA's section on the Wall Banger wrestling moments. Just remember those moments. Samoa Joe getting kidnapped by ninjas, Abyss becoming a HulkLantern, him creating a hole in the mat by chokeslamming A.J. Styles, Fourtune having six guys, Abyss branding a fan backstage after trying to murder RVD, Hogan admitting to Dixie's face that he stole the company, etc, etc, etc.
Taz on Feb 17th 2011 calling himself a Segway machine.
The crowd at the Impact Zone gets a lot of crap for dumb chants, chanting for anything and seemingly trying to get themselves over. Whether fair or not it's subjective but what's not is their chant towards Chris Harris, ex-tag team partner of Beer Money member James Storm, being incredibly funny. "Knock knock? Who's there? Braden Walker!" note :Braden Walker was the name Chris Harris used during is very, VERY, short stint in the revived ECW.
Heard here. Gotta give James Storm credit for keeping a straight face.
May 19, 2011: Velvet Sky shoves Karen Jarrett in a wheelchair down the entrance ramp, where Jeff tries and fails to catch her.
June 16, 2011: Eric Young assaults a backstage interviewer and pins him to "defend" his TV Title, with the interviewer waking up and asking what just happened. And Scott Steiner's Hot-Blooded mockery of Bully Ray.
Sarita has a habit of salsa dancing during her matches. During one Xplosion match against Angelina Love she kept doing it so much that Taz started singing along to her moves. Oh and the whole "Mui Caliente" thing gets honorable mention as well.
Christopher Daniels and Kazarian's heel promo about wanting a rematch for the World Tag Team Championships after losing them to Chavo and Hernandez. Exhibit A of why current heel Daniels is the most entertaining wrestler alive.
Wrestling/Austin Aries and Bobby Roode having a match at the London Impact and both agreeing to be professionals and doing the Finger Poke of Doom and telling the other to lie down for him so he could win. When that doesn't work they start fighting and when the ref got distracted Roode tosses a chair to Aries and falls down acting like he's been hit only for Aries to fall down as well leaving a confused Ref wondering what's going on as both claim the other hit him.
At the Jokers Wild show, Matt Morgan and Joey Ryan get tagged in together and Joey realizes he's got no chance. After a few ineffectual shots by Joey, Morgan just shrugs and kicks his head off with the Carbon Footprint and pins him.
One time, during Angelina Love and Velvet Sky's classic Fanservice-heavy entrance, a camera man tried to cop a feel of Velvet's butt. Velvet angrily kicks the guy in the face.
May 9, 2013: Christy Hemme accidentally announces Christopher Daniels and Kaz when Bobby Rhode and Austin Aries were doing their entrance. They get mad. Later, Aries and Kaz blind each other, then tag each other and go to the wrong corners while trying to find their tag partners.
The Funeral for Aces and Eights and the Food Fight from the Thanksgiving Episode.
Feb. 13, 2014: Velvet Sky hits Chris Sabin with a low blow, but he says he came prepared and was wearing a cup. He pulls it out and shows it off to the crowd... and then she hits him with a low blow.
There was a lot to like about Spud's tribute to Dixie on the March 13th 2014 episode in terms of comedy. Two highlights were: Spud yelling "SHUT UP!" in response to the nonstop crowd chants, and the look on EC 3's face when Spud describes him as "young, supple Ethan".
Following that, when MVP was motivating Spud to wrestle, he says "Size does matter." EC 3 looks right at the camera and nods his head.
MVP flubbing his lines on the June 19, 2014 episode. "Tag of the - WAAAAAH!"
