- 25 July 2011 on RAW, Michael Cole is forced to wrestle by Triple H against a mystery opponent, no one other than Zack Ryder himself. 30 seconds later, Cole is looking at the lights.
- Not to mention the entire thing took place with Cole wearing Triple H's ring gear. And he did Triple H's ring entrance complete with water bottle.
- His involvement in Wrestlemania 28. John Laurinaitis and Teddy Long each put together teams to have a match for control of Both shows. What resulted was a tag-team match involving twelve guys - not to mention valets, divas, flagbearers, the GMs themselves, and Little Jimmy, bringing the character count up to something like 18. In any case, Ryder gets into the ring toward the end, starts beating the crap out of The Miz, and gets ready to deliver the Broski Boot. Right then, Eve Torres (who had been stringing Ryder along with her hard-to-get act for months before finally outing herself as a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, only to apparently re-align herself with Ryder in the week or two leading up to WM) jumps into the ring out of nowhere and starts mirroring Ryder's fist-pump. Ryder got distracted and lost the match in the ensuing chaos, but the "WTF?" look he gives Eve about halfway through his third fist-pump was priceless.
- On the June 11th episode of RAW, Vince Mcmahon was backstage having a conversation. When it was over, Brodus Clay's Funkettes came out and goaded him into dancing with them. When they leave, Vince keeps walking. Cue the camera panning to Zack Ryder, who saw the whole thing. He has a look of utter disbelief on his face. Vince then says "Woo woo woo! You know it!" to Ryder and leaves. Zack slowly removes his shades. The look in his eyes is priceless.
