Tom 3:16 loves nothing more than good, clean competition in the squared circle.Â Still, its hard to miss some of the missfires in the world of professional wrestling.Â Below, I have compiled five of my all time favorites with the help of videos from Wrestlinggonewrong.com.
After losing a retirement match to Jake Roberts at Wrestlemania 7 back in 1991, Jake tied up Randy Savage in the ropes.Â What was a supposed to be a quick strike by the cobra turned into an vicious attack, as the snake continued to chomp on the Macho Man’s bicept for several seconds.
Before he was “The King” Booker T was cutting promos with Mean Gene in WCW.Â Prior to a four corners match during WCW’s Spring Stampede pay-per-view which would determine Hulk Hogan’s next opponent, Booker T drops some real talk on the Hulkster.
Just because the TNA promotion hasn’t been around for very long doesn’t mean they haven’t had time to completely embarass themselves.Â When a match between Sting and Abyss went outside the arena, directors at the control board had no camera to switch to besides the one focused on their two announcers Don West and Mike Tenay, calling the match… without even seeing it.
When Kurt Angle faced off against Shane-O-Mac in a street fight on a King of the Ring pay per view, one of the most exciting scripted spots of the night was suppose to be Shane getting tossed through a pair of glass sheets.Â Known for being a part of several hardcore wrestling stunts, this shouldn’t have been such a big deal for the littlest McMahon.Â But, the glass refused to break… twice.
Old school ECW is known for not only it’s wrestlers’ hardcore style, but also for its fan’s drunken douchebaggery.Â At ECW’s 1994 Hardcore Heaven, the legendary Cactus Jack and Terry Funk wrestled to a no-contest decision.Â At this point,Â the tag team Public Enemy stormed the ring and attacked.Â The resourceful Terry Funk turned to the fans and called for a chair… and he got one, followed by hundreds more.
And on the seventh day, Tom 3:16 rested.
