We all know about ''Austin 3:16'' at King of The Ring and ''finally The Rock has come back to...'' at the Owen Hart Tribute Show, but how about the following:

''The best there is, the best there was...''

''Break your back and make you humble''

''Whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild on you''

''You Can't See Me''


Edit: Feel free to add other popular catchphrases from any era.

The only one that I can think of off the top with any certainty is "Smell what I'm cookin'?". I am fairly certain that the Rock said it first in his Gennifer Flowers interview at one of the Wrestlemanias. He said if he "was judge and jury, he'd be a hung jury. Smell what I'm cookin'?"

He was saying that before that show. The earliest date I can confirm would be the Raw in Hartford after Backlash, literally minutes before he turned face. Before that? Maybe.

I think Bret coined that catchphrase in his first stage promo with Mean Gene after beating Flair in 1992.

Was "No Chance In Hell" specifically from Vince's promo announcing his entry to the 1999 Royal Rumble? Or was he already using that phrase in 1998?
