What are some cases in wrestling where they tried to get cheap sympathy from the crowd?

Best example is Triple H's "retirement" speech. After tapping out to Brock Lesnar at a PPV, Triple H held his arm, looking all sad, and around at the crowd hoping for a "THANK YOU HUNTER" chant. That of course didn't happen and he got a "YOU TAPPED OUT" chant instead. So to get that reaction he came out on RAW the next night and gave a speech about how much of a sexy badass he usually is but tonight he wasn't feeling so sexy and badass. Que the tears, THANK YOU HUNTER, cheap symph gained.

Lita's thank you/retirement speech was the worst.

She actually seemed to give a heart felt speech and the crowd started chanting "whore" or "Slut" or something.
I want to say that she started to cry at the end. That was shameful.

Everything about her sendoff was so messy.

The crowd chanting stuff like "shes a crackwhore" and "shes got herpes" throughout her match. Cryme Tyme coming out after her match with her "box of belongings" and humiliating her by selling off her vibrator and saying that shes got a yeast infection...

Every time they try to right fucking storys for the female and cruiserweight division.

TJP was homeless.
Rich Swann has no parents.
Brian Kendrick lived in his car.
Charlotte has a dead brother.
Sasha faking a retirement.
Bayley for being normal.
Kharma's pregnancy

None of this is natural, fans are not going to like someone because they had these qualities because they're just going to forget it. In the end it doesn't matter. I never gave a fuck about any of these things when I watched them in the indys or NXT or whatever shithole they came from. Just give me what they're like, and if you wanna bring this attribute about them in an angle, do it the same way Jericho did it with Punk or Punk did with Jeff Hardy. And no, not like how you did it with Paige and Charlotte, fucking leave Reid Flair out of this.

Oh also they used DB's injury as a plow to do YES chants for Vince's shitty ass network.

Well the story is that Styles was trying to prove Cena's a has-been and he should just leave for Hollywood like The Rock. Cena, at that point, thought he was possibly done. AJ wore the armband for a while because his thing is that he was taking Cena's spot. Then there were on-and-off build due to Cena's schedule (which played into the story) until the Rumble where Cena won his 16th against a guy he hadn't yet beat in a non-tag situation and validated his place as a wrestler first and an actor/PR guy second while tying the record many thought he may never reach, including Cena.

The only negative of the feud is that going into No Mercy that made a big deal about Cena going for his 16th, but barely mentioned it before the Rumble until he won. I realize it was more than that, with the personal feud against AJ and all, but it would've been the one thing the feud needed to feel complete. Not at all bad for an angle that basically lasted half a year.

And then lost it clean with zero fanfare to the world's biggest choke artist two weeks later without a single successful televised title defense.

The number one easiest thing WWE could do to be better, and make these sympathy pandering segments actually work in the process, is to quit acting like the story so far doesn't inform the next part.

Cena pushed Bray. He insisted to the directive that Bray was one of the guys that they need to keep strong. And he actually achieved that, since Bray pinned the champ and the former champ in the same night, and also had a sucessful title defense the very next show. While the feud with Styles still worked smoothly, giving us interesting characters and great matches. God bless Cena.

In retrospect it's pretty uncomfortable but you really can't understate the nuclear levels of heat her and Edge had at the time, I can't honestly think of a way they could've done it at the same time without the crowd shitting all over it. Her appearance a short while later on Raw's 15th Anniversary show with Trish felt like a more traditional send-off.

It was stupid as a basic concept because it was based on swerving the audience, but it made no sense in kayfabe to do it. Why would Sasha the babyface act like she's going to retire for some reason?
The reason is to evoke thoughts of Bryan and make the audience think she might be, but why would her character act like that? What reason in kayfabe did she have for giving this faux-Bryan retirement promo? It's WWE's totally illogical booking where they're booking for meta-concepts aiming for ratings instead of booking for characters.
