* During a 2004 episode of ''[=SmackDown=]'', Rhyno hits Wrestling/JohnCena with a [[FinishingMove Gore,]] pretty much breaking the dude in half. That in and of itself is only funny if you [[BaseBreakingCharacter are not a fan of Mr. Cena.]] What is ''objectively'' hilarious is Paul Heyman grabbing a microphone, getting in the battered Cena's face, and screaming "'''''GORE!!!''''' '''''GORE!!!'''''" at the top of his lungs.

** Shortly after that, Heyman says Big Show is the (unconvincing) "face" of ECW. and the same guy says "he's going to retire next year!". If only he was right.
* Paul concludes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZHiSBf-SUU this]] interview after leaving WWE in December 2006 by saying why he doesn't want to go back into the wrestling business (in short, [[ArtistDisillusionment creative and emotional disappointment]]) by saying "I'd end up like Cornette!" and does an impression of his notorious outrage. Now HilariousInHindsight as Paul is back in wrestling (as an on-screen character only though) and Wrestling/JimCornette is out.

* When Wrestling/HeathSlater is demanding a match with Brock and mentions his kids, Brock grabs the microphone from Paul to respond. Paul's response is to look horrified and FacePalm, as if to say "Oh dear God, what is he going to say?" [[spoiler: He's not wrong, as Brock responds to Slater's comments with a [[MemeticMutation hilariously blunt]] "I don't give a shit about your kids".]]

* After Brock Lesnar won the Money in the Bank contract in 2019, he teases cashing it in on either Universal Champion Wrestling/SethRollins or WWE Champion Wrestling/KofiKingston, and the two end up meeting with Lesnar on an episode of ''Raw'' to know his choice. At one point they start playing both champions' music as Lesnar mulls over his decision, and when Rollins's theme plays (which is a heavy guitar-lader riff), Heyman starts to rock out to it, complete with AirGuitar. Even Lesnar, who was uncharacteristically dancing to the music before (and even mimicking that his MITB briefcase is a boombox), tells Heyman to cut it out.
