Are there iconic moments in modern wrestling?

I was thinking about how there hasn’t been any truly iconic moments in wrestling in the past decade or so. Only ones I can think of are pic-related and the MitB Punk walk-out. I know an element of what makes something iconic is time, or is it just that modern wrestling is just some watered down shell of itself?

      Agree with just about all of these. First thing that came to mind for me was Omega-Okada 1's spot where Omega just fricking collapses to inadvertently dodge the Rainmaker and like you said Omega-Okada 4's ending the shot of Omega with the title, Ibushi, and the Bucks just getting confetti rained down on them.

      Of all these I think you might be right with sting’s retirement match. Darby’s fall onto glass and his blood oozing out is still fresh in my mind

        No one will remember it next month. Because some other indie shitter will do something stupid.

          No, I guarantee you that a percentage of people will have thought it was based and a percentage of people will still seethe about how dangerous it was for years after this happened. Indie shitters always do something stupid. They don’t discredit moments like these,

      Naito getting his roll call this year was iconic, literally the culmination of his entire journey with by far the most over wrestler in Japan post 2010's

          In 15 years people will look back on that as a legendary moment. Legendary moments are pretty much 100% created with hindsight.

      This was so good. The idea of Roman dropping the title just before mania was absurd, so it really felt like you were cheering for a face to overcome the impossible.

    No because WWE spent the past decade sucking off one guy. Nothing iconic happened the first 4 years because he was a rejected babyface. He had some nice moments when he demanded to turn heel but they pushed him so hard he had the leverage to get a part-time contract and kill the momentum of what he was doing

      they tried for years to get Roman to have a moment anywhere near what Bryan had and they failed
      ironically the only thing in the face Roman era that got close was this

      The beginning of raw then night after he beat the undertaker was iconic. I watched it live. It was 10 minutes of LOUD booing and then he said “it’s my yard now” and dropped the mic. He should have turned heel here

      Is it true Ronda seethed when Becky was more liked than her?

        yeah, she seethed about everything though
        Ronda was unironically a top 10 self mark of all time in wrestling

      Nia being a shitter back then really helped make Becky popular
