Here are the two moments to choose from:
One of the most infamous events in pro wrestling history. Bret Hart was leaving the WWF to go to WCW but refused to drop the championship to Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series in Montreal. So Michaels, Vince McMahon, and a few others, cooked up a scheme that would see them shoot on Hart and screw him out of the title in front of his loyal Canadian fanbase, leading to a near decade long falling out between the two sides.
During a match between Mick Foley and Terry Funk in 1995, an ECW fan held up a sign that read "Cane Dewey". Dewey, of course, is Foley's son, who was all of 3-years-old at the time. He used the sign as inspiration for a later promo during a feud with Tommy Dreamer. It's one of the best you'll ever see.
