I think Batista kicked out of the tombstone also during their Cell match, he said in an interview it was a christmas gift from Undertaker. :lmao

Also I think Angle has kicked out of the Rock Bottom either once or twice at No Way Out 2001. I vividly remember Rock hitting it at least twice so I'm guessing he kicked out.

Hogan kicks out of Goldberg's Jackhammer - the first and only person to do so. Although it was a botch; Nash was supposed to break it up but didn't.

And also,

In 1991, Hogan "hulked" up immediately after getting the Tombstone.

In his squash match with HHH, Warrior no-sold the Pedigree.

Neither are kick-outs, but still count.

- Jeff Hardy kicked out of the Pedigree in an Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out 2008.
- Kurt Angle kicked out of the People's Elbow at No Way Out 2001, Rock also hit the Rock Bottom and the ref said Kurt kicked out when it looked like he never moved.

I'm not sure but I think Foley kicked out of a pedigree in the Cell match after he went through the roof. I think Triple H beat him with the second.
Triple only hit one pedigree in the match.

Hebner literally forgot the finish
Yeah, after the Rock hit the Rock Bottom again he gave Hebner a weird look.

Both matches at WM between Taker and HBK, I couldn't believe it, even when Taker put his hands on HBK while sticking his tongue out he still kicked out, amazing matches.

It must have something to do with the main eventers getting more time in their matches but I've noticed that the mid carders and jobbers finishers are never kicked out of while just about every main eventers finisher has been kicked out of before or eventually.

They often do kick out, people just often rarely give a shit.

For someone to survive the Tombstone or Pedigree, thats HUGE.
