For me the stupidest wrestling moment came during an indy show I saw when I was a kid. Keep in mind this was during the time of kayfabe.
After the matches, I was standing outside with my brother and two of the wrestlers who had fought eachother (a Face and a Heel) came out joking with one another. When they spotted us, they went into full kayfabe and began throwing worked punches at eachother right there in the parking lot!
The Face eventually chased the Heel back into the building and that's all I saw of them.
To this day that still makes me laugh. But hey, some promoters like Verne Gagne for example told his wrestlers they'd be fired if they ever broke kayfabe so I can't really blame them.

I forget which pay-per-view it was (I wanna say Summerslam), but Sable decides to talk to Stacey about Test. She asks, "Can you come over here and talk for a moment?", then they both step less than 1 foot to their left and begin talking. Were they trying to get in frame or under a boom or something?
Well, everyone's already named (four times) my favorite one: Triple H yelling 'Show, side slam' from across the ring. But there's a couple from WCW that haven't been said yet.
I remember tuning into see crowbar standing outside the ring, holding a chair next to his head for forever, until he finally took it down a bit, motioned for the guy in the ring to hit him, and then put the chair back against his face and braced himself. Sure enough, the guy in the ring hit him with a sliding dropkick to the chair. I think Tony S. started saying "Did you see that, Crowbar must LIKE the pain" to try to cover.
And of course, seeing Nash holding Bischoff in the aisle for a powerbomb for about 15 seconds straight, until 'blood' started falling into the aisle behind him. After watching the blood fall for a few seconds, he then walks backwards with bischoff still between his legs until he's underneath the blood, and then acts all surprised and shocked about what just fell on him.

I remember during the HBK/Bret ironman match at Wrestlemania 12, Shawn grabs Bret's arm and jumps off the apron, dragging Bret into the ringpost. Shawn crashed into a cameraman, then tells him to "get the fuck out of my way." I head it plain as day, and the commentators even apologized for it.

Yeah, he seemed to do that a lot in matches. They even seemed to play off it during Hell in the Cell, when Shawn "attacked" the cameraman, causing them to open the cage to get him out. But before that, he slapped another cameraman away, saying "Get the fuck outta here." Then he yelled at Vince, "Get your goddamn cameras outta here!"

If it'd been Hogan, they probably would've done it. They could've setup Hogan/Lesnar III at the Rumble. If it'd been Benoit, maybe they wouldn't have. Vince generally won't push the "little" guys until he runs out of big guys to push.
