Funny: WWE


  • Mick Foley documented a great crowning moment of funny involving accusing the Rock of maybe proving Rocky DOES "suck" and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin talking about shrimp boats. One can read from pages 109 to 113 here. The follow-up on pages 117 to 120 is possibly even funnier.
  • "I like your poetry." "I like what you do to babies."
  • A performance art piece from Chris Masters.
    Ozzy Osbourne: Buy that man a bra!
    (Jerry Lawler laughs)
    Sharon Osbourne: Jerry, I loved him! Why'd you do that? He's gorgeous!
    Jerry Lawler: ...you thought he was gorgeous?
    Sharon Osbourne: Gorgeous, man!
    Ranjin Singh: The Great Khali says he found that piece..."oddly mesmerizing."
    Sharon Osbourne: I agree with you!
  • "Looooondon bridge is fallin' down....fallin' down...fallin' down.... I'm the BOOGEYMAN! And I'm comin', T'GETCHA!!"
  • One of the most overlooked moments during the controversial "Invasion" arc in 2001 were the skits involving "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, and Vince McMahon. First, on an episode of Raw, Austin and Vince each wore cowboy hats that Austin got, and as for Angle, Austin gave him a kiddie-sized cowboy hat. Then, on an episode of Smackdown, Austin sang "Kumbaya" and "I Am the Champion" (to the tune of Queen's "We Are the Champions") to Vince, and Angle tried to serenade both of them to "Jimmy Crack Corn", ending with "...and I've got Olympic Gold!"
    • And on that note (pardon the pun), there was the incident on Raw between Steve Austin and The Rock, culminating in a duet of "Margaritaville"... and then The Rock hits Stone Cold with the Rock Bottom.
    • And then there was an encore where the entire WCW/ECW Alliance (led by the Hollywood Tone-Deaf Stephanie McMahon) sang a tribute song to their leader- "Stone Cold" Steve Austin- called "Wind Beneath Our Ring" (to the tune of "Wind Beneath My Wings"). The whole thing was So Bad, It's Good, from the bit parts sang by individual WCW/ECW wrestlers (who were trying so damn hard to be noticed at this point) to the karaoke on the giant screen complete with a bouncing Steve Austin head. Angle then spoils the party for the Alliance by giving them a milk bath, from a milk truck, mocking Austin's Corporation beer bath from 1999.
    • The Invasion had quite a number of giggle-worthy skits buried underneath all the controversy. Other highlights included Shawn Stasiak constructing a booby trap using a bucket of sour milk (which inevitably backfired) and Booker T visiting a Hollywood movie studio in an attempt to replicate The Rock's then-recent success with The Scorpion King:
      Booker T: I'm THE BOOKERMAN!
      Receptionist: The Boogerman? I never saw that one, was it European?
  • The Rock and Chris Jericho riffing on each other. You with your unibrow and your "Just bring it!" Bring what? A vomit bag? A Fig Newton?
  • Chris Jericho has a lot of them, be it his many digs at Stephanie McMahon, the time the Dudleyz stole Christian and Jericho's bags and made them chase them all over the arena. Capped off with the towel-clad Christian and Jericho at the top of the ramp, Bubba Ray & D-Von in the ring, and the immortal line:
    Bubba Ray: SPIKE! GET THE TOWELS!
  • Kurt Angle: SCREW YOUR BOOBS
  • When Kane was first turning face, one of his first good deeds was to help a kid win a prize from a crane machine...
  • The bWo entrance at the original One Night Stand pay-per-view, especially coming hot off the heels of The Sandman's entrance, hands down the greatest ever in pro wrestling. Joey was laughing so hard he believed he'd piss himself:
    "If there was ever any gimmick that didn't deserve to make a dime and made a boatload of cash, THIS WAS IT! And the best thing was they couldn't sue us because it was a parody!"
  • Ric Flair's famous Flair Flop is known to cause a chuckle every now and then, but one instance turned it into a laugh riot. Triple H was in Flair's corner when he flopped once, and Trips could very easily be seen hanging his head and groaning in disgust.
  • Although Edge and Christian were essentially gods of comedy upon winning the tag titles for the first time, the act really didn't kick into gear until they were aligned with Kurt Angle. The Crowning Moment of this trio was early on: to pay tribute to the state of Kentucky, they dressed up as a jug band...complete with Edge donning a set of false teeth even more ludicrous than his own unnaturally large grin.
  • Tommy Dreamer believes that Christian and Jack Swagger are ignoring him, and he has an interesting way of proving his point.
  • Al Snow, especially his reign as European Champion and his tag team with The Comically Serious Steve Blackman.
  • June 29th 2008. The night of Vince McMahon's Million Dollar Mania will forever be remembered as the night Mr. McMahon got Rickroll'd.
  • At ECW One Night Stand II, Rob Van Dam won the WWE championship from John Cena. Two nights later, on the inaugural broadcast of the revived ECW, he was crowned the ECW champion as well. He then spent several minutes talking up the honor and prestige of the ECW Championship...then held up the WWE Championship and declared, "And I'll keep this one too! Look! It spins!"
  • Matt and Jeff try to stay focused.
  • The "Shockmaster" segment on the August 31st, 2009 edition of RAW; take one of WCW's worst moments, mock it mercilessly, and then throw in Santino Marella for good measure.
    • "It shoulda worked!"
  • On September 9th, 2009, Bob Barker served as the guest host/GM of Raw. The opening segment alone made the entire show.
    • Barker's threat to an angry Chris Jericho: "Get back down there or I'll take you over my knee!" Which was even funnier when Jericho BACKED DOWN.
    • And don't forget the 85-year-old Barker beating up Chavo Guerrero Jr. "The most important thing in any fight is the element of..." * punches Chavo in the stomach* "SURPRISE!"
  • Goldust and Booker T
  • Triple H's appearance on the MVP Lounge talking about Edge:
    Triple H: "You know, that Edge is a smart guy. I mean, marrying the boss to get ahead in the business? That's genius!"
  • Kurt Angle vs. a generic luchador jobber - Kurt throws him to the outside, and the ref leans over to check on him. At this point, Eddie Guerrero sneaks in from behind disguised as said luchador, then throws Angle over the top rope (and over the ref's head) before leaving an inconspicuous banana peel where Angle was standing. The ref looks to see who attacked Angle, sees the banana peel, and just gives a Aside Glance to the camera, as if to say "You have got to be kidding me."
  • "The Houdini of Hardcore" Crash Holly defends the WWF Hardcore Championship against both of The Headbangers in Fun Time USA. This is probably the most memorable defense of said championship.
  • At Survivor Series 2009, Christian teamed up with Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, MVP, & R-Truth, and tried to point out that he's the only... At which point, his teammates to cut him off & say that it shouldn't matter, as they all want to win. Christian's relieved, and remarks that he's glad his teammates don't care that he's the only member of the ECW roster, leading to them all having a chuckle about it before Christian remarks "You thought I mean because I'm Canadian", which leads to an awkward silence from the others. The promo then ends with Christian trying to prove Canadians are pretty good rappers:
    Christian: "Team Kofi Kingston! Looking for a fight! 4 of us are black and 1 of us is white! WHAT'S UP! What's up! What's up. Mark what's up?"
  • Carlito would like to thank Jesus, the Academy, Team Jacob, and everyone's favorite place Puerto Rico.
  • Let's not forget about the really funny PPV commercials. Like the WM21 Taxi Driver Parody, The Last Hot Dog (Summerslam 2006) or Carlito vs The Dove (WM24)
  • Judgment Day 2002 and Wrestlemania 23, where Kurt Angle and Vince McMahon, respectively, get their heads shaved.
    Audience: (Chants in tune to Angle's music) "You're bald! You're bald!"
    • Then, on the RAW after Wrestlemania 23, Bobby Lashley knocks away Vince's hat, causing him to hide under Lillian Garcia's skirt. Lashley then rips her skirt off.
  • Kurt Angle: "Rey Mysterio Jr is a boy, and I'm a man. And I just love to play with little boys." * crowd laughs* "NO NO I DIDN'T MEAN THAT!"
  • In what is also a Crowning Moment Of Awesome, Beth Phoenix (!) entered the 2010 Royal Rumble and, after being lifted over the top rope by The Great Khali and pointed towards the back, Beth plants a HUGE kiss on Khali. And eliminates him by dragging him over the top rope during the kiss.
  • Shane McMahon helps his father Vince train for a match against Austin...in the middle of winter with about a foot of snow on the ground. And Shane gets the idea to use the Good Old Ways of training, because "this is how they used to train in [his] day", including chasing a chicken around to build speed and endurance. Only problem is, since it's snowing out, the chicken isn't having any of it. So the first take, Shane throws the chicken, the chicken stays put, and Vince tries to nudge him along to get it to run.
    Vince: This is the stupidest—
    Shane: This is the moment of truth!
    Vince: This is the stupidest one of them all—
    Shane: No, it's not!
    Vince: I'm the CEO of a Fortune 500 company
    Shane: That's alright!
    Vince: And you want me to chase a damn chicken?!
    Shane: This is how they used to do it! This is how you build speed! Greasy fast, lightning speed! You catch this chicken, you are greased lightning! This is it — you gonna be number two? This is how you beat Austin! This is how you beat Austin! You ready?!
    Vince: Okay!
    Shane: HERE WE GO! (throws chicken into pen with Vince) GET THE CHICKEN, GET THE CHICKEN! THAT'S IT! (The chicken stays where it lands, Vince pounces on it) DROP THE ELBOW! DROP THE ELBOW!
    (Vince starts dumping handfuls of snow on the chicken, then just stares at it.)
    Vince: ...what's the matter with the chicken?
    Shane: It's a working chicken!
    Vince: The chicken's like Austin...it's afraid of me! (Beat) Should I choke him?
    (Vince leans in over the chicken, pumping his arm back and forth in a peculiar gesture)
    Shane: Don't choke the chicken.
  • Edge and The Rock Only through these two could they make Squick hilarious.
  • Another guest host of RAW looked upon very fondly is William Shatner. Yes, that William Shatner. So when Shatner negotiated matches a la Priceline.com and did spoken word versions of WWE entrance themes, it turned what an already awesome night of RAW (Bret Hart's Return) into an epic one.
  • The McMahon family portrait from the 15th anniversary of Raw. Triple H hits the ring with his signature additions ("What I'm doing is waiting for that pop to die down - damn, do you hear that?!"), and, well - Hilarity Ensues. Shane's reaction of "oh God, my eyes" - or "I need a freaking drink" - and his eventual Screw This, I'm Outta Here! after Vince made a comment about "dusting the cobwebs off" Mae Young. To say nothing of the parade of people who've slept with Vince. Most of this is just the setup for the Crowning Moment Of Awesome for Stephanie and Trips.
    Stephanie: Dad, you've got serious problems. And you know what? You've embarrassed our family long enough. It's time that I embarrassed you.
    (Stephanie grabs Triple H by the shirt and makes out with him as the crowd goes apeshit.)
    Triple H: (looks smug as hell) Heh. See ya at home, Steph! ... oooh, I mean, your brother's a gnome!
  • The Dudley Boyz humiliate Christian and Chris Jericho by stealing their stuff and throwing it into the crowd. Including...
    Bubba Ray Dudley: Who wants some...(reaches into bag)...who wants a jar of Ass Cream?
    Lawler: (on commentary) Ass Cream?! Who uses that?!
    Bubba Ray Dudley: What the hell are you guys doing with Ass Cream?! What do you DO with Ass Cream, might I ask?!
    Jericho: Just hold on one damn second! You think this is funny?!
    Bubba Ray Dudley: Yes, I do!
    Jericho: You think this is funny?! Throwing my shirt into the crowd?! Throwing his pants into the crowd?! You think it's funny taking my—(Beat)Christian's jar of Ass Cream out?!
  • The Undertaker and Kane couldn't catch a break. Between Kane and the whole Katie Vick situation and Taker with a busted hand, among other things, it was hard to say who was more worthy of pity.
    Kane: So...how was your week?
    The Undertaker: ...
  • Bob Uecker's interviewing André the Giant at Wrestlemania 4 — if for nothing more than Uecker's hilarious facial expressions:
    Andre: Hulkamania is OVER! (laughs)
    Bob Uecker: (trying to push Andre's hand away) Um, would you mind getting your foot off my shoulder?
    (André the Giant throttles Bob and shakes him like a rag doll.)
    • During the battle royal at the same show had this exchange:
    Jesse Ventura: You ever see anything like this in baseball, Ueck?
    Bob Uecker: This kinda reminds me of final cut day of spring training.
  • Even though the storyline itself had to be Vince Crossing the Line Twice for the 12th time, when they're in a Church, Vince dares G~D to strike him down. Shane takes a few steps back.
  • One moment in Wrestlemania 18 regarding the hardcore title scuffle backstage. At one point after the Hurricane got the title, he attempts to hide in one of the changing rooms behind a changing blind. A few seconds later, a few of the Godfather's ladies come in to get changed, and none of them notice that Hurricane is behind the blind... until they notice that Hurricane's shadow starts to show signs of visible excitement when a GIANT, phallic shadow rises up. Cue the Godfather come in and chasing the Hurricane away with a broom which had been used to display said 'excitement'
    Jerry Lawler: He DOES have super powers!
  • One backstage segment on Smackdown in 2001 saw Trish Stratus getting changed behind a screen in the guy's dressing room. Steve Blackman disappears behind the screen to help her with her zipper, accidentally poking her with his kendo stick which is now elongated upwards in a strangely phallic position. Cue Grandmaster Sexay walking in and seeing the odd shadow.
    Trish: Wow, that's gigantic.
    Steve: You should see when I beat people over the head with it.
    Trish: Can I hold it? (touching the stick) It's so hard.
  • Eve Torres interviewed Triple H backstage before Survivor Series 2008 but Triple H was staring at something on Eve's upper torso area. He remarked that they were amazing, perfectly shaped and that his mother had a pair just like them. Could he be talking about...Eve's pearls of course. And after Vladimir Kozlov interrupts and leaves Trips remarks, "See, Eve, he couldn't take his eyes off them either".
  • Perhaps the Jerry Springer skit that was staged when Springer hosted Raw is worthy of this category even though falling into the So Bad, It's Good category. The skit started off with Kelly Kelly saying she's pregnant but doesn't know who the father could be, there are a number of possibilities. Cue Santino's music, he mistakes Springer for Maury Povich and then Michael Cole interrupts only to be cut down by Jerry Lawler. Springer says that Lawler usually picks up his girls during recess (yes, paedophile jokes on a PG show). The Bella Twins interrupt and apparently Brie is a man and we can finally tell them apart as Brie is the one who looks like she's ready to castrate someone. Another possibility for Kelly's baby's father is Chris Masters who is told to put a bra on by Springer. Seconds later Eve Torres comes down and Masters says she wasn't getting the job done (it's still a PG show, apparently). Eve drops a bombshell: she's been cheating on Chris with the Great Khali. Springer says he has the results of the paternity test and the father is Hornswoggle. This is apparently too weird even for Springer and he walks off only for Lawler to admit they staged the whole thing.
    Lawler: Kelly Kelly's not pregnant, Brie's not a man, there have been no secret rendezvous and I'm pretty sure the Great Khali has no idea what's going on.
    Singh: Actually, King, much like our audience the Great Khali feels this has been a giant waste of time.
    • But they're not done yet, Lawler says Springer has been hiding a secret relationship. Some men like their women skinny, others like them curvy. Some like their women old but Springer likes his women young. As in Mae Young of course and she comes out to smother Springer with kisses. The entire segment provided the sensation of channel surfing without even picking up the remote.
  • At Extreme Rules 2010 in the middle of the Last Man Standing match between John Cena and Batista.
    Young fan: I hate you Batista!
    Batista: I hate you too!
    • Don't forget Chris Jericho's interaction with a fan at Survivor Series as well.
      Idiot fan: Go back to Toronto!
      Jericho: I'm from Winnipeg, you idiot!
    • At a house show in Germany, Aksana was facing Layla and had Layla positioned in an odd way...
    Fan: Time for a low blow!
    Aksana: You shut up!
  • William Regal raps. You heard me.
    Straight out of Blackpool
    I'm William Regal
    My rhyme's so intense
    It shouldn't be legal
    My style is refined
    Not crude and crass
    I'll keep you grounded
    Like volcanic ash
    I'll take you down
    Rung by rung
    I'm just like British Parliament
    I'm completely hung
    Straight Up Gangsta Trippin.
    Yes boy.
  • The Kane/Pete Rose feud is pretty goddamn hilarious, all things considered. Arguably the first example of face-like reaction Kane got was tombstoning Pete Rose after the latter insulted a local sports franchise.
  • The entire ending segment of the NXT finale - William Regal randomly calling Matt Hardy Eugene repeatedly, R-Truth's "Be quiet, you got a mask on!", CM Punk being told to leave if he has a problem and doing so, all of it was great.
  • John Morrison (Johnny Nitro at the time) is cutting a promo with Melina, when in the background, Jeff Hardy sets up a canvas and starts painting. John turns, yells at him, and kicks over the canvas. Jeff goes absolutely berserk on him. Which goes to show that obviously you do not fuck with the man's painting.
  • Layla El has recently picked up a few along with Michelle McCool since forming LayCool. One match in particular saw Beth Phoenix perform an airplane spin on Layla who ran to tag Michelle in only to realise she was in the wrong corner. Another time saw Beth use a giant swing on Layla with Michelle in close proximity, resulting in Layla becoming a human skipping rope.
    • For the second season of NXT, LayCool are pros on the show. Their rookie? Kaval (aka indy star Low Ki). A pair of bubbly, fashion-obsessed mean girls paired with an intense, no-nonsense wrestler who has a reputation for maintaining kayfabe...and for kicking the crap out of his opponents. Their interactions so far have consisted of Kaval holding their belts and looking disgusted and bewildered while the two act like complete airheads.
  • On the 6/21/10 edition of RAW, a recently-fired Virgil asked what Ted DiBiase Jr. was going to do with protection now that he traded up for Maryse. Ted's response was, "go to the drugstore".
  • Unforgiven 2005: resident ditz Maria begins her pre-match interview with Chris Masters by asking him "Why do they call you The Masturbates?". Easily the funniest thing Maria ever did in-character.
  • From a parody of a skit done by the NFL, "You may not realize this, but you're African-American."
  • July 16, 2010. The Big Show pulling off CM Punk's mask.
    Matt Striker: He doesn't look that bad. He looks like Big Show Junior!
  • At WWE Hell in a Cell, Randy Orton fails to throw the steel steps over the top rope into the ring. He gets booed and he gives the crowd the "up yours!" gesture.
  • The Miz stealing Edge's Slim Jim at Summerslam 2010. It's just so damn petty.
  • Triple H turns 40...and jobs to the entire cake-wielding RAW roster.
    • The best part is Batista doing his machine gunning pose with a cake.
  • The Big Show goes looking for the Hardy Boyz. He stars knocking down random doors in the back area, but behind one door...are The Undertaker and Kane. The hilarious one liner that Taker tosses off after beating the everloving crap out of Big Show? "Next time, knock!"
  • John Cena is interviewed by Maria in 2006. Vince McMahon is running Raw from a cell phone because his first granddaughter has just been born, and the assorted chaos that has ensued means Cena's just about had enough. After hitting on Maria (and asking if she ate paint chips when she was a kid), he goes off on how Edge is "rated PG-13", Randy Orton's been hitting on Brooke Hogan, and how Armando Estrada should "park [his] ass and shut [his] piehole".
    Carlito - okay, at this point Carlito's hair has gotten way outta control! So much stuff is going on, the walls are closing in, everybody's looking at me! They think I'm gonna flip out . . . Tonight, my partner is Ric Flair, and I get to kick Edge's ass! Call me!
  • In 2003, after an angle that saw Hogan fired and slapped with a restraining order against Vince, promos for a new All American Face called Mr. America began appearing. Cue to Mr. America's debut on Smackdown, and lo and behold its Hogan in glaringly obvious flimsy disguise. The best part was that unlike some other cases of fake disguises, Hulk's was pure Refuge in Audacity as he didn't even try to change his in-ring style, manner of speech, or even his entrance.
    Taz: I hear he's bald. Like an eagle.
  • This is an internet creation, but WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG. Edge's promoing has never been so . . . classical.
  • Latest episode, has The Big Show 'interviewing' himself on Smackdown.
  • The time William Regal and Goldust had to switch costumes for their match.
    Jerry Lawler: He could be Goldust's stunt double!
  • The Undertaker vs. Jeff Hardy. 'Taker was annoyed at a fan who kept yelling at him to piledrive Jeff. He responds with "Shut up, stupid!"
  • November 1, 2010, A segment that night on consisted of a sketch revealing before commercial break that Mr. McMahon has been in a coma for two months. His doctor (played by Freddie Prinze Jr.) casually mentions that it will be a shame that Mr. McMahon will miss the entire election when his wife Linda spent $50 million on the campaign. Mr. McMahon is wrestled awake by this news, covered in his wife's campaign stickers, and finally says that it's okay as long as the WWE is running smoothly. The doctor proceeds to list everything that's been going WRONG (Undertaker buried, NEXUS running wild, Pee Wee Herman hosting, etc.) and Mr. McMahon gets up to leave the room, saying if his wife can run for Senate, he can run for PRESIDENT, exiting to reveal his backside covered by a banner of his wife's opponent. Cut to his daughter Stephanie awaking in bed, Newhart style, and the following exchange:
    Stephanie: I just had this horrible dream...hey, is my dad still in a coma?
    Triple H: (off-screen) Yeah, he's in a coma; I'm pretty sure he's brain-dead.
    Stephanie: (smiling) Thank god. (flops back to the bed, goes back to sleep)
    • And before that, we had the hilarious Pee Wee Herman segment, featuring the Secret Word ("Ring"), The Miz coming out, everyone freaking out when he said it, Alex Riley being Pee Wee's biggest fan, and The Big Show in full Pee Wee Herman getup.
  • The 2010 Survivor Series featured a 5v5 team elimination match. During the match "Dashing" Cody Rhodes gets slapped in the face. Cue an epic temper tantrum and Cody storming out to the announcers table. However, instead of getting a chair or something he has someone hold out a mirror to make sure that he's still as good looking as before.
  • BALONEY, FUDGE AND MUSTARD! THE INTERNET IS RUINING JOHN CENA'S LIFE!
    • Even funnier is the email address bit. Apparently it's "candypants564@gmail.com" - it's a nonprofit thing, okay?!
  • The 11/22/10 Raw, where John Cena is giving his "retirement" speech and hangs a lampshade on exactly what his demographic is:
    All right, if this is going to be the last time, I want to hear half the arena chant "LET'S GO CENA!" and the other half chant "CENA SUCKS!" . . . No, no, it has to be all the kids and women chanting "LET'S GO CENA" and all the men over 18 chanting "CENA SUCKS!"
    • CM Punk also happened to be on commentary that night, so he chanted Cena Sucks with the crowd.
  • The whole Edge abduction of Paul Bearer and Kane's reactions.
  • The "And I Quote" Slammy Award Video Package is basically a large collection of these, both intentional and unintentional, and by extension counts as one itself.
  • This exchange between the Rhodes wrestling family Cody Rhodes, Goldust, and Dusty Rhodes, from the old-school WWE RAW:
    Goldust: Perhaps you could share with me some of your grooming tips...?
    (Goldust inhales sharply, but Cody cuts him off.)
    Cody Rhodes: Don't breathe on me. [Exit]
    Goldust: Wait! Help a brother out! [Exit]
    (Beat)
    Dusty Rhodes: Man, I raised some weird kids...
    • This may have become a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment considering what the Rhodes Family is presently going through in storyline.
  • The Royal Rumble 2005 ad. WWE meets West Side Story. WHAT THE HELL
  • Eli Cottonwood on the subject of mustaches:
    Eli: What is a mustache? (chuckle) It's a little bit of hair, growing over the upper lip. I don't have one...I have the best mustache of them all...
    (John Morrison hangs his head and covers his face with his clipboard)
    Michael Cole: I thought he said he didn't have a mustache...
    Eli: The mustache for a real man!
    (Mark Henry pantomimes an airplane falling out of the sky and crashing)
  • The first 3/4ths of John Cena's return promo on the 12.20 Raw (until the needless Vickie Guererro bashing). Wherein he shows his dropping 23 chairs on Wade Barrett from four camera angles and makes it impossible for Vickie Guererro to get a word out.
    • Specifically this bit:
      Cena: I'm gonna do something I should have done a long time ago. *runs over to a fan in the front row and hugs him* I just hugged it out with the "We Hate Cena" guy. We're good!
  • Santino VS Kozlov DANCE OFF!
  • Derrick Bateman and Bryan Danielson stand for chicks... AND AMERICA! Oh, and submission wrestling.
  • YMMV, Cena, acting as Guest Referee for a CM Punk and Wade Barret match with the loser's group barred from the Royal Rumble, disqualifying both. His reason?
    Cena: Double disqualification, they used too much profanity. This is a PG show!
  • NXT in general tends to be funny due to the snarky commentating. But it gets bonus points for just how much it paints the fourth wall, whether it's Dolph Ziggler half-jokingly accusing a challenge of being rigged and Matt replying "Ya think?" or Josh Matthews flat out saying during a wedding segment "You realize this isn't a real wedding, right?" and Cole replying in mock surprise, "Really?!"
  • Eddie Guerrero had some Mexican food delivered to himself on Smackdown. The Big Show decided he wanted it, took the delivery, and ate it before hitting the ring. Once there, he had some...internal distress (said food was spiked ahead of time by Eddie), and took off for the restroom-only to find that Eddie had already removed all the TP.
    • Yet Again Eddie proves he is hot with the fans. Someone get Show some wrap-around sunglasses.
  • This fan-cam footage from a house show in Beaumont, Texas. The guy recording is dressed up as Sheamus. When Sheamus goes to the other side (read: his) of the ring to pander to the crowd, he sees the guy dressed as him and his gimmick grinds to a complete stop. Not only does it completely derail Sheamus, but he stares at the guy for several long seconds; he even points him out to the official as if to say, "You see this too, right?".
  • Vickie Guerrero tries to spear Edge...and fails. She bounces harmlessly off of him, and (apparently) busting her ankle in the process.
  • The entire Great Khali Kiss-Cam (Valentine's Day edition) segment on the 2/14/11 RAW. The audience couples were the typical fare, but when the wrestlers themselves got involved, well...
    • Santino Marella and Tamina kiss, with Santino's left hand trying to sneak in edgewise as his "Cobra."
    • William Regal kissing Zack Ryder
    • Ted DiBiase (the younger) and Maryse. Maryse pulls away and gives him the talk-to-the-hand gesture...then turns and plants one on the very stunned face of Yoshi Tatsu.
  • When Zack met Rosa. It's not often you see a Big Lipped Alligator Moment in pro wrestling.
  • Cena taking all of the piss out of The Rock's Take That at him by eating Fruity Pebbles before his match at the Elimination Chamber.
    • February 21, 2011 Cena's verbal retaliation the week after The Rock's return on Raw where he launches into his old gimmick as the Doctor of Thuganomics.
  • Aksana, the Lithuanian from season 3 of NXT is one walking CMOF and half the time we're not sure she's doing it on purpose. During the "Talk The Talk" challenge on the show, her topic was a llama...and she had no idea what it was. Striker changed it to camel...and she didn't know what a camel was either. During the "Power of the Punch" challenge, her score was 666. During a "Diss the Diva" challenge, she remarked that she thought she saw fellow contestant on Jerry Springer, fighting for her babies. Then there's all her talking about being beaten with shovels.
    • Her elimination from the contest was her grand swan song. When she found out, she promptly fainted and tried to tell everyone it was a mistake. She then assured them that she was going to write a letter to Vince McMahon demanding a recount.
  • A minor one but during a blink and you miss it squash match with LayCool against Gail Kim and Melina, the latter two were mimicking the formers' Valley Girl Les Yay personalities.
  • Another Big Lipped Alligator Moment that involves Rosa Mendes. During a mixed tag match featuring Layla and the Dude Busters, out came Rosa with her skipping rope. The Dude Busters then got down from their positions at ringside and started spinning the rope for her while Matt Striker sang "my grandpa and your grandpa". Layla's tantrum was the icing on the cake.
  • Santino Marella "rapping." Even Randy Orton was trying not to laugh.
  • Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross commenting on John Morrison's entrance at Wrestlemania 27.
    Lawler: Can you go into slow motion, JR?
    JR: I can simulate it. I'm in slow motion most of the time.
  • Booker T comes out to celebrate with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Jerry Lawler after WrestleMania 27. He gets a beer from Austin...then as he drinks it, a Stone Cold Stunner. As Booker falls back, the beer gushes from his mouth in a wide arc.
  • The first person eliminated from Tough Enough 2011 said their favorite match was Melina vs Alicia Fox.
  • From the 25th April edition of Raw, the Draft Pick. Kofi Kingston has just pinned Sheamus for Smackdown's victory and Draft pick. Cue the ENTIRE Smackdown lockeroom, led by newly drafted John Cena, doing Kofi's signature clapping, even heels like Tyler Reks and Drew McIntyre getting involved. The funniest reaction is definitely Del Rio, who's clapping normally along and clearly thinking "What the hell is going on here...?" Now in gif form, for those who wish to see it
    • Brodus Clay's reaction is EVEN FUNNIER - he's just sitting there all forlorn and doesn't join the clapping.
  • The Royal Rumble has provided a few over the years:
    • Kane eliminating the Honky Tonk Man in 2001 immediately after he sang his song— grabbing his guitar and smashing him over the head with it. And then shaking his head slowly.
    Jim Ross: I think Kane is tired of the song.
    • In the 2002 Royal Rumble match, Austin and Triple H were in the ring with the Hurricane and the Hurricane got the goozle on both of them, prepping them for a chokeslam. They sold it like he's The Undertaker or Kane for about five seconds before they both looked at each other and realized they're being choked by the freakin' Hurricane. Just as it dawned on the Hurricane that he just grabbed the necks of the two most decorated wrestlers of the Rumble that year, they grabbed him by the back of the neck and threw him over the ropes.
    • In the 2004 Royal Rumble match, Chris Benoit and Randy Orton had just eliminated several guys in a row and then collapsed from exhaustion. The announcers mentioned that the next person to come out would have a huge advantage. But that person turned out to be Ernest "The Cat" Miller, who decided to dance to his theme music alongside his ostentatiously-wigged manager, Lamont, instead. Benoit and Orton were not amused, and threw both of them over the top rope.
    Tazz: "Well, the wig's eliminated."
  • The "Gimmick Battle Royal" at Wrestlemania X-7 was pretty much one big CMOF due to the return of many So Bad, It's Good old favourites and having Bobby Heenan on commentary.
    Heenan: "By the time The Iron Sheik gets to the ring it'll be Wrestlemania 38."

    Heenan: This man (Repo Man) is nuts! Last week he repoed his own car.
    Okerlund: About five years ago, he got my mother-in-law.
    Heenan: About four years ago, everybody got your mother-in-law.
  • Just a Sexy Kurt
  • The Sandman one ups Carlito. Ron Simmons was needed for this one
  • Ax-Crazy Scary Black Woman Kharma gets a Diva Photo Shoot. It starts normally enough until we get a series of first-person shots where Kharma assaults the photographer.
  • Michael Hayes is doing a typical heel promo and calls out the audience for being stupid and being unable to spell the word 'ambition'. He then proceeds to mock them by suggesting a spelling bee. He goes: "A... m... i..." (Face Palm) before the referee interrupts him about needing to start the match.
  • TALK ABOUT BARRETT!
    • We are!
      • MORE!
  • "DOO! DI DI DI DI DI DI DOOO!" * runs from security*
  • R-Truth joins the Confederacy.
    Michael Cole: Finally, some sanity!
    Jerry Lawler: ...sanity? Don't you mean insanity?
    (Enter R-Truth, dressed up in a Confederate soldier costume)
    Jerry Lawler: What?!
  • During his first stint in WWE, Scott Levy, a.k.a. Raven, was given the So Bad, It's Good gimmick of Johnny Polo, and worked primarily as a manager and sometimes color commentator. To his credit, Raven made the character hilarious to listen to. Especially when paired up with Wrestling/Gorilla Monsoon:
    (during a Bret Hart vs. Yokozuna match, when Yokozuna slowly falls to the mat)
    Gorilla: It took him forever to fall to the ground!
    Polo: Well, 568 lbs. x 9.8 feet-per-second, that's the force of gravity!
    Gorilla: (exasperated) Will you stop?!
  • Steve Austin to D'lo Brown: "You're so insensitive. You dialed zero when you called me last night."
  • DDP helping Christian return to his winning ways. Specifically Christian's positive smiles and DDP repeatedly sneaking up behind Christian
  • During the Power to the People, techical difficulties resulted in Mason Ryan getting put into a match with Evan Bourne. Since Mason bears more than a passing resemblance to Batista, the obviously upset crowd, hoping for a match between Sin Cara and Bourne, decided to have some fun.
    Crowd: (Not two seconds into the match) BA! TIS! TA! BA! TIS! TA!
  • Miz + R-Truth + Christian = comedic gold
  • In the 8/22 edition of Raw, a fan tossed John Cena back his shirt. Alberto Del Rio's reaction is especially priceless.
  • On the 9/26 episode of RAW, Christian comes out once again to complain to Triple H that he got screwed out of the title when Sheamus threw him into the ring allowing Mark Henry to beat him. Triple H's response?
    Triple H: It was a Lumberjack match, you idiot.
    • Also, his response to Trips putting him in a match with WWE Champion John Cena.
    Christian: Is it for the title?
    Triple H: No.
    Christian: *Hissyfit*
    • Also, Triple H increasing the numbers of competitors Cody Rhodes will have after Rhodes gives Triple H some snide remarks, after been given the night off due to being injured the past week on Smackdown, going from just one competitor, to a 10 man battle royal.
  • October 31, 2011: Sheamus meets Beaker. (Itself a Call Back to when Edge referred to Sheamus as such)
    Kermit: We're sorry Mr. Swagger, Miss Piggy and I don't want to anger you or your...mothernote .
  • William Regal's entrance on Superstars during their November 2011 UK tour. Even Regal cracks up on his way to the ring.** Even better, it was edited into the show.
  • October 16, 2011: Sin Cara Azul defeats Sin Cara Negro and pulls his mask off. Negro covers his face with his hands and runs away screaming.
    Booker T: No wonder why he was wearing a mask, that guy's ugly!
    Michael Cole: Huh? What are you talking about? He's just a Mexican guy with a crewcut.
    Booker T: Look at him, he's hideous!
  • This exchange after Triple H and R-Truth are talking to invisible people. The audience reaction to R-Truth's counter to HHH is priceless.
    Triple H: Truth, he doesn't like how that guy's eyeballing him.
    R-Truth: Man, you crazy. You're talkin' to people that don't exist.
    Triple H: (full Sarcasm Mode) I know, it's like I'm insane.
  • The Miracle on 34th Street Fight between Randy Orton & David Otunga during the special Holiday Edition of WWE SmackDown!, featuring such moments of hilarity like Orton chomping down on holiday cookies, tossing a present box at a fleeing Otunga (nailing him right in the head), and even screaming out "HO HO HO!"
    • Don't forget, he put one of the Christmas decoration over Otunga's head when he flung him into the steel steps.
  • The "Pipe Bomb of The Year" Slammy Award video montage which, as per tradition, takes all the unintentionally (or intentionally?) hilarious lines said during the year in the WWE and put into one comical video, provides us with a look back at these gems.
  • Austin Gets X-Pac
    • "And X-Pac, the only thing good about you is that your name rhymes with six pack!"
  • How does Aksana react when Teddy Long says she'll be learning from Alicia Fox? By jumping up and down and squealing with delight that he got Rihanna.
  • No Mercy 2004: Bubba Ray Dudley orders Jackie Gayda to kiss him, and foolishly closes his eyes and puckers up. Rico kisses him instead. Bubba enjoys it, then realizes what happened and has a Freak Out. Later, The Dudleys attempt the "Wazzzup" (Bubba holds an opponent down and Devon hits a diving headbutt to the groin) on Rico, but Rico rubs his thighs suggestively, causing Devon to stop and refuse to deliver the headbutt in disgust.
  • Stephanie McMahon: I loved the way you beat up Chris Jericho last night, but my philosophy is "once is never enough."
  • Johnny Curtis and Maxine kidnap Matt Striker.
    Maxine: Why do you have chloroform?!
    Johnny Curtis: Why DON'T I have chloroform?
  • Any segment involving Dr. Shelby, whether on Smack Down! or Raw has been comedy gold.
  • WWE released this version of "Jingle Bells" for Christmas. The fact that the likes of Damien Sandow, Randy Orton, and even Ryback singing in this is downright bizarre and absolutely hilarious.
  • Big Show using a comically oversized steel chair to take out Sheamus in a Chairs Match at the 2012 WWE TLC pay-per-view is a hilarious sight to behold.
  • Dean Ambrose's reaction to being flipped onto a ladder by Ryback at the 2012 TLC pay-per-view.
  • On Main Event January 16, 2013, Regular Color commentator The Miz is recovering from an attack from The Shield, Taking his place is Brad Maddox who jumps the barrier and casually commentates with Michael Cole, All the while Cole is telling Maddox he doesn't work there.
  • On the 7/26/13 episode of Smackdown in Corpus Christi, TX, Cody Rhodes stole Damien Sandow's Money in the Bank briefcase during a match. As Sandow stood in the ring demanding Cody's arrest, he appeared on the Titantron offering to give Damien the briefcase back if he met him across the street from the arena... which happens to be right at the banks of the Gulf of Mexico. What follows thereafter must be seen to be believed.

"Myyyy faiiiir LADY! HAHAHAHAHAAH!"

(Ron Simmons walks in on the scene with his arms folded, looking very agitated as he contemplates the sheer lunacy of what he's witnessing.)
Ron Simmons: ...DAMN!
