LHC measurements and searches are usually conducted with a particular theory model in mind, but can also have unexpected implications for alternative scenarios. Especially in the absence so far of smoking gun signals of new physics at the LHC, reinterpreting combinations of many "preserved" data analyses in this way, applied to more general models of beyond-SM physics has become a big business. I will show uses of the Rivet & Professor MC toolkits for reinterpretation of electroweak, top quark, and BSM search data in this way, particularly in first results from the TopFitter, Contur, and Gambit fitting groups, and how these studies can also inform future experimental measurements.
