This week unfortunately we have had to focus on the dar side of wrestling (R.I.P Eddie) so i though despite this thread probably being done 50 times we could use a thread to make people chuckle and focus on the brighter side of wrestling..

 

so in this thread add your favourtie wrestling muck ups.. be it botched spots, Commentator mishaps, promo mistakes.. etc, etc,

 

lets try and make it humours and not depressing hey :thumbsup

 

one of my favourite comes from WCW Bash at the Beach when Hogan turned on WCW to join the NWO... the commentators were Tony Schiavani (spelling?) and someone else..

 

as Hogan ran down the ramp the other guy (not Tony) screamed WHO's SIDE IS HE ON?? hinting at the heel turn which people had not thought about yet practically giving the game away.. what made me laugh was Schiavani's response.. WHO's SIDE IS HE ON?? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?! and he sounded generally pissed off.... always made me laugh...

 

your moments TWO???

Mine is actually an Eddie Guerrero moment.

 

At WM17 against Test, Test was caught up in the ropes, Eddie tried to go through the ropes but because they were in different positions because Test was tied up in them, he fell in between the bottom rope and the two tied ropes to the floor, hilarious to watch.

 

Also I loved it when the drunk fan came into the ring for the Guerrero vs. Van Dam match.

 

Sorry that they are both Guerreros but they are the only ones on my mind atm.

Scott Steiner v Test at Bad Blood, Test is knocked to the outside of the ring and Steiner gets up on the ring apron to attempt a flying clothesline but falls flat on his face two feet away from Test.

 

Ultimo Dragon's WrestleMania XX entrance, he tripped over his cape several times.

 

Kane's failed backdrop attempt on Big Show a couple of weeks back on RAW.

 

Vader falling off the ring apron a couple of weeks ago, also on RAW.

 

Kane falling off the top turnbuckle in his SummerSlam match with RVD a few years back.

 

Kane's attempt at selling the Sweet Chin Music to Shawn Michaels when he missed it clearly by a few feet in the same match where he failed to backdrop Show. That must go down as stinker of the year. Come to think of it, I think Kane has supplied me with more laughs from botches than any other wrestler (apart from maybe Ultimate Warrior).

The most painful and stupid one - The invention of the Gonzo Bomb.

 

Lets see the logic train-

 

Problem - Oh crap i can't pull this guy up for a powerbomb!!! The crowd will laugh at me...waa!

 

Solution - Oh i know! I'll just drop this guy straight on his head with no warning and kill him! That will make the fans happy!

 

logic is ....where?

That one isn't funny.

 

Just like it wasn't funny when Brock Lesnar did the same thing to Hardcore Holly.

Hogan failing several times to set the touch paper on fire during his Haloween Havoc match with the Warrior' date=' and then nearly setting his whole hand on fire after finally managing to get a flame[/quote']

 

That reminds me of the Undertaker match with Mankind ( i think it was, might have been Kane) where Taker can't light the damn lighter to send the "fireball" into Paul Bearer's face. Always made me ask, why didn't Paul just roll out of the ring? He had enough time to roll out of the ring, go backstage, pour himself a coffee, drink it, head back to the ring and sit back in the corner before Taker got the thing lit.

 

Just like it wasn't funny when Brock Lesnar did the same thing to Hardcore Holly.

 

That was Holly's own fault for trying to make Lesnar looks bad. Holly wouldn't get into the correct position for the powerbomb so Brock forced it. Had Holly co-operated, he'd have been alright. Not funny, I grant you but Holly's own fault.

Ultimo Dragon's WrestleMania XX entrance, he tripped over his cape several times.

 

Actually it was due to a puddle of water at the top of the ramp, so as soon as he came out he slipped. Then as his boots were soaked he slipped again.

 

Luckily the next guy out was warned. :P

Randy Orton missing the RKO on Jericho. Kinda sucked, because i'm quite the Orton mark but it was funny as hell.

 

Lesnar botching the Shooting Star Press at Wrestlemania. I never liked him and a friend of mine got hold of some impressive footage of him doing one and we all instantly knew he'd save it for 'mania. As he climbed the turnbuckle I turned to my group of friends and said.. "He's gonna miss this!" *SMACK*

 

Also: THIS....

I'm well aware of that. Still wasn't funny.

Oh, but it was. I like Bob Holly, but he was being his usual hard headed self, just Bob being Bob if you will. Except now we know he chose the wrong person to be Bob with. What he didn't count on was that Lesnar was strong enough to lift him and drop him on his head even after Holly was deadweighting him.

 

By the way, Cork? Did they have to play so bloody well against the Candystripes on Friday night?

They sure did. Wiped you off the pitch. I was there. Front row and center in the shed. What a night.

 

I forgot about this' date=' which I love, by the way.[/quote']

 

What's so funny about that? I think it just looks cool.
