It's not really a single moment, more of a series leading up to one big wtf that was kinda cool. Below is a tale that many may class as tldr;
Sooo I have this over powered Bruce Lee, he's untouchable and pretty much no one can beat him and that's cool! After all it's Bruce f'n Lee. He had been the world champion for quite sometime killing all challengers mostly before the ten minute mark, it was getting kinda tedious and Lee had nothing left to prove so I decided to retire him.
I gave him a lil retirement tour against his previous rivals such as Tiger Mask, Brock Lesnar and Conor McGregor and thought it would be cool to have him team with his irl son Brandon Lee aka the guy from the Crow! They beat the Young Bucks in a tag match, the edit had a cool moveset so I decided to put him against Bruce Lee for the title just as a lil extra match in the retirement tour. I'm half paying attention as the match plays in the background as I sometimes do. That is until Brandon Lee aka the guy from the Crow, the guy who's had one match in his FirePro career before this beats the unbeatable Bruce Lee for the title! Not what I wanted to happen really...
I end the tour there. In my creative head Bruce Lee told the owner of professional wrestling Vince McMahon that he'll only drop the title to his son. McMahon reluctantly agreed and The Crow loses the title in his first title defence. In all my years of playing wrestling games I've simulated and played a lot of cool things. But I never have, and never thought I would successfully simulate backstage politics.

Wow, I love how the mod allows you to go from the mount to the back grapple!! 😲
Excellent chain wrestling and amazing finish to that sequence!!
I had a cool moment last night that I nearly missed by sight but missed the opportunity to capture. It wouldn't have really made enough sense without context though so probably better I write it out.
Tetsu Gushiken vs. Naja Mask.
A few weeks ago I finally completed Naja Mask (an edit I first created in 2006 as a UBL original).
I gave him a specific sequence pair related to the Green Mist ("Venom" since he's a snake):
Green Mist -> Green Mist Taunt Green Mist Taunt -> One of the running lucha roll-up moves.
So Tetsu and Naja are having a pretty competitive match where they are throwing all their shit at each other. At like the 16 or 18th minute, Naja taunts then (due to random logic) hits the mist on a dazed Tetsu. Naja then does the green mist taunt but Tetsu no longer has mist daze. Naja wants to complete the second sequence but is a little too close to the ropes to immediately attempt his run. So he has to circle back a little bit. RIGHT as he starts his run animation, Tetsu grabs him in the standing leg lock! After one ref check, Naja taps!
Tetsu is known as a scientific technical wrestler who prepares well for his opponents. I love the way he won this! The match got a 99% too which was pretty awesome, especially with the ending.
A real minor thing but it made me pop. It was a tag team clash of styles as World of Sport greats Johnny Kidd & Johnny Saint faced off against luchaodors Bandido & Flamita. The match was going great, but ended rather suddenly a little after 8 minutes into the match when Kidd made Bandido tap to the ironically named Mexican Stretch...
I've spent the last 12 hours or so working on a redesign / major update for Indie Lawson. Anyway, as you'd expect I'm doing test sims and then she goes and has this absolute cracking match with one of my faves from ZIP Japan. 20 minute time limit but these girls pushed it to the max!
