#1 The Curtain Call: The Inception of the Kliq and the death of Kayfabe
Before entering the company's most popular phase in the Attitude Era, WWE was recognized as a legitimate business that thrives on entertaining the audience through its unpredictability.
It was all real to the audience, until Shawn Michaels stepped up to clash with Diesel in the main event of a house show in Madison Square Garden in May 1996.
After the encounter was over, HBK, Diesel, Razor Ramon, and HHH broke character while confused the entire world by publicly appreciating each other, despite playing negative and heroic characters respectively.
While the company was successful in creating an illusionary universe through its hard-hitting stories, this controversial embrace changed the entire business forever, and killed kayfabe in professional wrestling.
Since the company has turned into a more fan-friendly business today, the Curtain Call plays a more significant role in company's scripting process which has led the fans to believe that the characters are far from real.
