Here's a few of the best:
  • Bulldog winning the IC title at Summerslam 1992 in London.
  • Harts winning at the Canadian Stampede 1997 in Calgary.
  • HBK winning the WWF title at the 1997 Royal Rumble in San Antonio.
  • Kurt Angle winning the WWF title at Unforgiven 2001 in Pittsburgh.
  • Batista retaining the World Heavyweight title at Summerslam 2005 in Washington DC.
  • Flair winning the World Heavyweight title at Starrcade 1993 in Charlotte.
  • Steiners retaining the Tag Team Championships at Summerslam 1993 in Detroit.
  • CM Punk winning the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank 2011 in Chicago.
Among the worst losses:
  • Bulldog losing at One Night Only in Birmingham.
  • Edge losing at Unforgiven 2006 in Toronto.

My favorite hometown wins are Owen pinning Austin in the 10 man tag at Canadian Stampede and Punk beating Cena at MITB 2011.

Bulldog in the UK and Punk in Chicago are the first ones that came to mind.

Didn't Sasha lose the ironman match at the last second (or something like that) against Charlotte as a face in Boston?
Sasha was humiliated in Boston in the main event of HiaC.

Probably Undertaker beating HHH at Mania X-Seven, given that HHH had beaten fellow Texan Austin at No Way Out. Probably had the second-biggest pop after Austin's entrance and Stunner on the Rock.

Speaking of Rock, his win over Cena at Mania 28 should count as well. It was Rock's first-ever Mania main event where he came out as the winner.

On the humiliating side, Christian lost the Hardcore title to Maven at Mania X8.

JR in Oklahoma. It seemed like every time they went back the WWE tried their best to embarrass him whether it was by making him kiss Vince's ass or firing him.

Benoit vs Austin in spring 2001 in Edmonton was an insanely good Smackdown. The crowd was deafening in their support of Benoit. Austin pulled out the win, and technically it was not a humiliation, but I wish I could watch it again.
