An indie promoter I’m Facebook friends with described Anthony Greene as a household name. I’m glad for all the success Greene has had, but a big chunk of folks here probably never even heard of the guy.
Also every time Hogan tells his WM III story and Andre gains a few hundred pounds and dies a little sooner.
"This is the worst piece of shit I've ever worked on...and I've worked on a lot of pieces of shit."
Dusty and Hogan partying with a dead John Belushi.
This. It's possible that they could've run into him when they worked for the WWWF/WWF in the late 70's, but they always made it sound like they partied with him as the WWF and JCP were going national.
Not quite an exaggeration, but you could tell when WWE Home Video had no clue about the history of things. Prime example was the Dusty Rhodes documentary where someone talked about Dusty having grand Hollywood-style visions, followed up with a clip of freaking RoboCop in WCW - which happened while Dusty was in the WWF, so he had no influence over that cluster of a situation.

HBK's selling at Summerslam 2005. I mean like he literally exaggerated everything right there in the ring and it was brilliant.
Whenever WWE desperately tries to act like Triple H is on the level of Rock, Hogan, Austin, and Foley. He's great and has a legendary career in his own right, along with a plethora of amazing matches. But let's not kid ourselves.
The worst is the DX "tank" supposedly toppling WCW and being a legendary moment. That's a WWE narrative that they've stuck with for two decades lol.
This isn't a favorite so much as one that annoys me, but whenever WWE tries to act like WCW was always total crap. Like they kicked your guys' asses and forced you to completely change the aesthetic and format of your shows. FOH with that.
I have to go with the Hogan one. It's not just his lie and how "Andre died shortly afterward", but the fact that it wasn't a promo but in an A&E produced documentary, not a shoot video or something wrestling affiliated but an independent serious documentary and the fact he was dead serious and not in character, when he said it.

the whole "in the middle of the ring" analogy, when they are actually by the ropes and and announcer says "he's got it locked on right in the middle of the ring" stuff like that is slightly annoying to me
