Brock ending The Streak was definitely the most shocking, but I don't know if I'd say it was most controversial. At the time a lot of people thought Lesnar was just another "big-name" filler opponent for Undertaker, someone to extend the Streak until WWE had Taker vs Cena at Mania. Having Brock win made it clear they were going to do something with him. He went on to destroy Cena at Summerslam and have a long run of dominance which still continues to this day. Now the opinion is that his run has gone too long but at the time there were a lot of people who believed Brock ending the Streak was just what he needed.
Batista winning the Royal Rumble in 2014 pissed a lot of people off because everyone wanted Bryan to win. Instead he doesn't even compete in it at the backlash was severe enough WWE had to change their plans. That gets my vote.
Triple H beating CM Punk at Night of Champions 2011 might be my runner up.
