This week we bring you Case Number 00076 The Curtain Call, an incident that will go down as one of the most iconic moments in World Wrestling Entertainment history. In May 1996, The Kliq broke character at a live event at Madison Square Garden in an unscripted incident referred to as the “Curtain Call”, which had far-reaching ramifications for the WWE specifically and the wrestling world as a whole. At a time when professional wrestling organizations worked to maintain the illusion of storylines and characters, the Curtain Call marked the first time that such high-profile performers had so publicly broken character, forcing the WWE and other wrestling organizations to begin acknowledging the scripted elements of their programming.
