Go To


  • The history of the WWF. After Ric Flair beat him Vince Mcmahon threatens to bring in the NWO to destroy the company. In a bid to talk him out of it Ric goes to Stanford and orders the best video makers there to put together this.


  • 1/04/2010: After twelve years of animosity and bitter resentment, Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart finally bury the hatchet.


  • 4/11/2011: After successfully defending the World Title at Wrestlemania 27, Edge announces his sudden retirement from WWE. The whole speech is sincere and honest, and the shock and sadness of the fans is soon replaced with adulation and respect.


  • 7/16/2012: You have to admit, dancing in the ring with their dad Rikishi had to be a pretty surreal, heartwarming moment for Jimmy and Jey Uso.
  • 7/23/2012 From the 1000th episode of Raw.
    • Vince starts the show.
    Vince: Wow, 1000 episodes!! First off I just like to say: thank you.
    (The crowd chants back "Thank You, Vince!!" as he stands teary-eyed.)
    Triple H: Didn't there used to be more of us?
    (The WWE unverse rejoices.)
    Triple H: I can't hear you, I said didn't there used to be more of us?!
    (The WWE unverse rejoices louder, "Break It Down" starts back up cueing X-Pac and the New Age Outlaws rolling out on a jeep, stepping into the ring and hugging HHH and HBK and finally for the first time the original duo of The Showstopper and The Game along with DX Army's Kid, Dogg and Assman crotch chop and shoot pyro.)
  • 11/12/2012: The return of Jerry Lawler after his heart attack. Specially heartwarming when Cole and Lawler hugged each other, as the last time Cole saw Lawler he was being carried out of the arena.



  • 9/16/2013: Before Daniel Bryan goes up for his match against Roman Reigns of The Shield, the other wrestlers come forward to wish him good luck. Hell, he even got a hug from Brie Bella of the Bella Twins (whom he is dating in Real Life)!
    • And when he's getting thrashed by Randy Orton and The Shield, a small group of wrestlers came out into the ring and helped him fight them off. The show ends with Bryan hoisted onto the Prime Time Players' shoulders as they all cheered in victory.


  • 4/14/2014: Just one week after the Ultimate Warrior's last appearance on RAW, the superstars would then pay tribute to him.


  • 2/8/2016: The retirement of Daniel Bryan. Also counts as a Tear Jerker.
  • 4/4/2016: Shane McMahon comes out to shake Vince's hand (and admit "You won."), and to thank the audience - cue the audience chanting back "Thank you, Shane!" while Shane gets a little misty-eyed.
    • As Shane is walking offstage to the crowd's protests, Vince stops him, informing him that "Nobody upstages me!" before handing control of Monday Night RAW over, to the delighted crowd's chants of "Let him run it!".
  • 6/20/2016: The crowd's very loud "YOU DESERVE IT!" chant during Dean Ambrose's post-championship win promo (Dean finally won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship during the previous night's Money in the Bank PPV). He just stands there and soaks it in, and you can see the small smile on his face.

  • 7/25/2016: After winning the women's championship from Charlotte in a hard-hitting match, Sasha Banks is interviewed in the ring afterwards and nearly breaks down in tears of joy. The entire crowd is on her side, chanting "You deserve it!". Even after losing Charlotte is shown for a split second smiling as Sasha celebrates in the ring.
