I think in most cases we know what our fellow wieners dislike, but what do you like? Who or what makes you mark out? I'll start:

Angle on the mic

Angle in the ring

Heel Jericho on the mic

Heel Austin

Face Benoit in the ring

Heel Vince on the mic

Shane attempting suicide

Angle's moonsault

Every main event in May 2001

The backstage sketches in June 2001

Booker T "At the Movies"

Tajiri/Kidman (they can have as many rematches as they want)




Jericho reversing the pedigree into the backslide

Angle giving the Olympic Slam to the Big Show

Angle's running superplex

Raven's color commentary

Tajiri's baseball slide of woe

"You Suck!"

Angle winning yet another gold medal in 2004

Anyone else want to share?

The first and last time I actually jumped out of my seat, lost all composure and completely marked out like a seven year old was RVD winning the IC championship @ WMX8

Other things I mark out for:

-Any non-Dude Love appearance by Mick Foley
-Booker T
-The Hardyz Entrance
-Face Jericho
-Heel Benoit
-Jericho vs. Benoit (Seperately they're good... together they're gold!)
-Heel HHH
-Team RECK
-Near falls, but only if they're at a point where the match could believably end. A near fall five minutes into a PPV main event just doesn't do it for me.
-Raven and Coach (These two rock together)
-Whenever someone mocks "What?" (IE "Say 'what' if you like to sleep with your own sister.")

One time markouts:

-The return of Cactus Jack (pre-Royal Rumble 2000)
-The Royal Rumble 2000 Table Match
-The Royal Rumble 2001 Ladder Match
-Regal's Hulkamania promo
-The ECW reunion
-Molly breaking a paddle over Trish's head.
-Spike Dudley winning the Euro Title
-Regal taking out Planet Stasiak

I pretty much only mark out for Ric Flair. The man is a god among men. Though, Molly Holly has been tweaking my markdom lately... More later.

Okay, I'll bite:

Anything Booker T does
Hardcore Holly's music hitting (obviously, hell I could list 25 Holly things, but that's a waste of our time)
Hogan singing along/doing the hand chop with his theme
Molly Holly with a microphone
Eddie Guerrero eye pokes
RVD promos
the END of William Regal matches
Jonathan Coachman (don't know why, kind of a running joke that stuck)
HHH jobbing
Val Venis (excluding all stupid in-ring promos)
"Hey Yo!"
X-Pac getting anyone's finisher
Kidman chants
Billy & Chucky

Some of my biggest all-time "mark out" moments...
Hardcore Holly returns from broken arm, attacks Angle (mainly cause I was there)
Booker T beats Austin
Angle Milk Truck
Shane-O-Mac returning, finally interrupting another hideous Vince-Trish segment
Hogan drops the leg on Rock at WMX-8 (you could pretty much put that whole match in there)
Taker & Kane finally confront the 2-Man Power Trip
Flair returns to the WWF
Shane announces he bought WCW from Panama City
Mankind beats Rock for WWF Title at Rock Bottom (reversed immediately)
Jericho beats HHH for the WWF Title on Raw
Vince wins the WWF Title (yeah, I loved it, sue me)
Benoit & Jericho win the Tag Titles
Angle wins the WWF Title (1st time)
Jericho wins the WCW Title (wins the "big one")
Venis beats Shamrock for I-C Title at St. Valentine's Day Massacre

old school:
Hogan beats Yoko at WM9 (I jumped up and down on my bed, I ain't afraid to admit it)
HBK beats Bret in Ironman
Janetty beats Michaels for I-C Title on Raw

And finally, the only guaranteed mark-out moment to come for me...
Benoit returns.

And I think you're fat. So how do you like me now?

-A positive thread, I like it

-Trish Stratus - effort/ top 3 sellers in all of WWFerrE
-Lilian Garcia -looking at and smiling extra hard when Trish enters the ring
-Chris Jericho - heel... doing stuff with his hair (colouring the tips red)... Little spining thing at top of entrance.
-RVD- matches... unique backstage promos (everyone else is so hyper, he's so whatever duddeeee)
-Chris Benoit - in ring... yelling at Lilian for screwing up.
-Molly Holly-
-Jim Ross - going insane/marking out/swearing. When all hell buh-gawd is breakin loose... his play by play in general.
-Kurt Angle - in ring... persona... getting really mad and swears.
-Goldust - entrance...
-Odd Couple Bookdust or is it GoldBook
-Hulk Hogan - Hendrix entrence... feather boa
-Austin - motivated Austin, talking at times, when he's in the ring with a challenging opponent and steps up.
-Team RECK - I'm putting in one thing that's not on anymore and that's Team RECK. There was a time that EVERY time they did something it was gold

Man, heel Austin sure has gotten a lot of love on this thread--I had thought the consensus was that the heel turn hadn't worked? I'm glad that others agree that heel Austin kicks face Austin's ass. I was so disappointed that they didn't give Austin's heel turn another try last night. Oh well, this is supposed to be a positive thread...

Some more things I mark out for...

Undertaker's topa suicida. I'd love to see it again, but I don't suppose it would suit his heel character.

Also, Undertaker and Angle counter-wrestling around an arm bar.

Net Hack Slasher's sig had me marking out as I read this thread this morning.

I don't think the consensus was that heel Austin wasn't great, it was that the main portion of the fanbase didn't dig it, except for the W-word...

Anyways besides InVasion Austin I tend to mark out for:

D'lo/Mark Henry as a tag team.

Heel Jericho, heel Tajiri (mist~!), and heel Eddy.

Whenever the Undertaker says stuff about stabbing people in the face, wearing teeth as a necklace, etc. For example:

"Coach, let me ask you a question. Are those your teeth?"
"Yes, sir, they are."
"Would you like to keep your teeth in your mouth?"

I LOVE it when he says shit like that...

Angle running up the turnbuckles to suplex somebody off the top rope... actually pretty much anything Kurt does I tend to mark out for, the dude pretty much single handedly keeps me watching whenever I'm bummed out with the show.
