If you were to ask a wrestling fan what one of the key draws to this seemingly peculiar world was, most of them would probably tell you that it was the element of surprise.

Even though the results are obviously pre-determined, that doesn't necessarily mean that it's always clear just what is going to unfold in front of you and often the seemingly doubtful becomes a visual reality.

No company in the wrestling industry thrives off that unpredictability more than Vince McMahon's WWE.

For what seems like an age, the biggest promotion in town have excelled in creating a false sense of security for their fans, before pulling the carpet from under their feet in spectacular fashion.

Even if fans are wise enough to predict that a certain event is inevitably going to happen, WWE have mastered the art of picking a moment where said shock would appear most unlikely and succeeded in routinely leaving a capacity crowd picking their jaws up off the floor.

But never fear, your writer has no intention of pulling a fast one on you in this list. So, here, as promised, are a few times WWE pulled the trigger - when you least expected it.
