YOU LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTWqW0ZJL1E While people may still disagree with The Rock ending CM Punk's historic WWE Title reign, there is no denying that there were a few memorable moments. This is what happens when you cheat on the Spanish announce table. RANDY ORTON #2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eHK4rhItXQ Randy's second appearance on this list is one of my all-time favorites. To me, there is nothing funnier than a mega-star forgetting his lines and then nonchalantly asking an Irishman for help. THE DEVIL'S FAVORITE CHOKE SLAM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGVCX2ZNLDY This has to be one of the worst Choke Slams I have ever seen, but it's also one of the most interesting. While Kane didn't get a lot of power behind his finisher, it's the first time I've ever seen a Choke Slam hit in one fluid motion. So thank you, Big Show! HOLLYWOOD AUDITION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi6xSX8yk2s Batista landed a huge role in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. The Animal returned to WWE earlier this year and is rumored to be coming back after he is finished promoting the film. Hopefully he feuds with Mark Henry. KHALI BEING KHALI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovZRmpLfP5o The Great Khali was intimidating and somewhat entertaining when he first debuted in 2006. However, he has gone downhill and can now barely walk to the ring. It's sad, but we can thank him for all of the humorous moments throughout his career, including this one. STARSHIP FAIL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9gCtsINf-k John Morrison has given the WWE Universe plenty to cheer about throughout his career. He had the look and in-ring skill to make it to the top, but this botch at TLC wasn't one of his proudest moments. RANDY ORTON #3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSsvjcYET18 For every ninety perfect RKO’s that seemingly come from out of nowhere, there is one that doesn't exactly go according to plan. Who is to blame for this RKO, Big Show or the Viper himself? 6-1-NONE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wRBfpbPi8Y The WWE Universe hasn't seen Rey Mysterio in quite some time. He was mercifully booed at the 2014 Royal Rumble, despite always being a crowd favorite. This botch happened at a live event, but hey, that's still fair game to me. GTH - GO TO HELL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVMaVd2v-HM CM Punk may not be with the WWE anymore, but the GTS is still one of my favorite finishing moves of all time. Punk has often times struggled hitting the finisher on big men and this particular GTS won't be making any best in the world lists. THE CURIOUS CASE OF ALEX RILEY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im32nmdRHCA Now I'm not saying Alex Riley did or didn't sandbag Jack Swagger during this finisher, but as of today, Swagger is finally over with the crowd and Riley is now a commentator. Swags showed his strength by following through with the move - and the commentary that is expressed is pure gold. A TEDDY LONG DOUBLE FEATURE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6_cn6_y_6E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmqMynI4Fjc It's sad, but Teddy Long isn't with the WWE anymore. He's been a part of the company for a long time, but surprisingly, they didn't even write him off of television. Here are just two entertaining moments that didn't involve a tag team match. THREE STRIKES - YOU"RE OUT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcUrkwKYwUM Mickie James and Gail Kim will go down as two of the most talented female professional wrestlers in history, but this may still haunt them. Gail appears to mistime the DDT, then Mickie seems to miss the kick, then Mickie wins via a forearm to the face. Just look how pissed off Mickie looks... THE MAD RUSSIAN/UKRAINIAN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkd6yQWN6vk I don't know about you, but I thought Vladimir Kozlov had talent and could have been used a lot better in WWE. He was billed as a Russian, but is actually Ukrainian. So...there's a fun-fact for ya. RANDY ORTON #4 http://youtu.be/2966IUFS7Bc Randy Orton and the words "momentarily distracted" go hand in hand. In this particular case, Randy is confused because Kofi Kingston didn't run out and make the save at the correct time. Randy eventually said ah screw it - and we all know he and Kofi have a bit of history. I CHOOSE MY PARTNER TO BE... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVepVW0UwfA The face of WWE and current World champion delivers on the microphone. A lot of times fans criticize him for being too cheesy, but you can definitely tell that John Cena was really into this promo. 450 SPLAT http://youtu.be/AI2bn3s0wSw There isn't much to say about this Justin Gabriel mishap. However, I do want to apologize for the annoying and unnecessary replays of the 450 Splash. This was honestly the only video I can find. ICHIBAN! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JK0Txw03Os4 From what I've read, ichiban means number one, or the best, in Japanese and at the time, that was the name of Tensai's finisher. On this occasion, though, neither Tensai nor CM Punk were ichiban. BOTCHTISTA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iasrhoHbUw8 Even though this is much like the Jack Swagger/Alex Riley accident, I still find it to be entertaining. Of course, this isn't the worst mistake in the world, but hey, it's still a botch in my book. Plus, I really wanted to play on Batista name with the title. STRATUSFRACTION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Naup33be1IM Trish Stratus has held the most female championships in WWE history and is a member of the prestigious Hall of Fame. She has the looks and the skill, but you can tell that it was an off day thanks to the vicious crowd. ORIGINAL SIN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BWcWt7F8u4 During his tenure with WWE, the original Sin Cara was known for being the absolute best at botching. So, it's no surprise to see him on this list for a second time. This mishap Give credit to Chavo Guerrero for selling the move the very best he could. RANDY ORTON #5 http://youtu.be/OQmpGG78gwY I remember watching this live and thinking to myself...wow, Randy is one cool cat. This was an unexpected botch where the Viper looked legitimately injured, but he fooled us all. 450 VIPER http://youtu.be/qUzrjYY5hvc Justin Gabriel recently had an emergence on NXT after an outstanding match with Sami Zayn. As of now, it looks like Gabriel will be tagging with Tyson Kidd. Let's all hope that the "Werewolf" doesn't (or does?) feud with Orton. RIPPED PANTS? http://youtu.be/sMWLslespMY Playing SmackDown vs. Raw 2007, there are ratings given to each member on the WWE roster. I was surprised to see how over Melina was in the video game - as she was more over than John Morrison. Anyways, this was a funny mistake by the former WWE Divas champion. AWKWARD http://youtu.be/_GqJOOIebI8 I don't know if anybody finds this as funny as I do, but it's just great. Sheamus and Big Show were in the middle of a completely serious promo/debate and then the podium breaks. All three men involved, including Booker T, played this off perfectly. BELIEVE IN ROMAN REIGNS http://youtu.be/jIYQ7dwBYa4 A week after the Shield's debut, you know that they were going to be something special. They made it upon themselves to be better than Nexus and are going to go down as one of the greatest stables in history. From what I hear - Roman Reigns is a goofball. WHO MESSED WITH THE PYRO? http://youtu.be/f8uSWvOBlMg The Devil's Favorite Demon is a certified WWE Hall of Famer and an overall class act. You never hear anything bad about Kane...ever. On this occasion, perhaps somebody was messing with his pyro for a good laugh? Kane's reaction is absolutely priceless. WHAT'S UP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oroKBLCcLx4 It seems like a lot of superstars have had trouble with the ring ropes and in this case, the victim was R-Truth. I think that Truth had trouble "skinning the cat" because Morrison was interfering - but I guess we'll never know. Regardless, it's pretty funny. KHALI < RULES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_P8al0Ab1Y Oh Khali. You'd think that he would understand the rules. I guarantee Edge was telling him to not climb over the top rope, but the Punjabi Playboy does what he does, and that's whatever he wants. Michael Cole was having an absolute field day. You make the rules - and Khali will break them. RANDY ORTON #6 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmqwmMZ5yBI Thank you for taking the time to read this piece. I hope you cracked a smile at least once and enjoyed the article. I leave you all with some fireworks... What were some of your favorite botches on the list and throughout WWE history?

I know 40 is a big number, but trust me when I say that this list was trimmed down quite a bit. Humorous botches and unintentional moments from the past decade are featured in this piece, so brace yourself. For the sake of the article I had to five a time-frame, therefore,, the botches that are featured in this piece take place from 2004-2014. Now, I didn’t add Brock Lesnar dropping Hardcore Holly on his head/Lesnar’s failed Shooting Star Press or mistakes like that.  As most of us already know, Holly broke his neck and Lesnar got a concussion. Both are serious injuries and while the botches may have been humorous at the time and will always be remembered - it just isn't right to laugh about them...at least in public. As far as I know, nobody was severely injured during the taping of these mishaps. I understand that this is a completely random post, but I think that sometimes the IWC, including myself, needs a break. We all need a day off from arguing about who should or shouldn't be pushed or lashing out about Seth Rollins' new ring-gear. So sit back, relax and just enjoy some genuinely funny botches and accidents. This list is in no particular order. Enjoy. BETTER THAN PERFECT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YS8HGR4U9GE We start things off with one of the funniest promos in WWE history. Granted, Curtis Axel has come a long way since this debacle, but he will never hear the end of the genesis of McGillicutty. MIKE ADAMLE - WWE HALL OF FAME 2015? http://youtu.be/BeFiIl4i5lc New WWE fans may not remember Mike Adamle. But looking at the clips in the compilation, I have one thing to ask WWE - what on earth were you thinking? ALBERTO'S BUCKET LIST http://youtu.be/U_EkCJxaw2M Alberto Del Rio is one of the most talented in-ring competitors in WWE today and his feud with the Big Show was fairly memorable. However, the most memorable part of this feud may have been this botch. RANDY ORTON #1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNx-juKgcpU I'm a big Randy Orton fan. Sure, he may be boring at times, but the Viper dominates his competitors, as well as this list full of botches and humorous mishaps. AJ LEE/NATALYA & THAT FIRED REFEREE  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfZ6f0MVOV4 I highly doubt that this is the sole reason why former WWE referee Marc Harris was let go. However, this is the moment he will always be remembered for. HANGOVER http://youtu.be/O2TrEZuCiBc CM Punk and Chris Jericho had a tremendous feud and series of match back in 2012. During this classic heel promo, Y2J accidentally slips and really hears it from the crowd. Perhaps he had some of that Jack before this segment? THE MAN FORMERLY KNOWN AS SIN CARA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBCKnNu2TFo To no surprise, the original Sin Cara has made this list. As of today, I believe he is known as Mistico and is competing in Mexico. If you ask me, he should stick to the comic books. BOOKER T < CM PUNK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywKkvLf8DpY At the time, Booker T was the managing manager of Raw. He interrupted CM Punk during a promo and we all know that's a big no no. Booker T has since learned from this mistake. DOLPH ZIGGLER? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OG7hlkX9vU Dolph Ziggler is an internet darling, and rightfully so. However, no matter how over he is and how well he sells, I had to include this rare mishap, which is actually pretty funny if you ask me. THE INFAMOUS TENSAI INCIDENT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmXdfg2Xl1o There are no words to describe this botch. I cringe every time I view it and at the time I felt horrible for Ryback because we all knew he could hit the move. But on that night it just wasn't happening for him. YOU LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTWqW0ZJL1E While people may still disagree with The Rock ending CM Punk's historic WWE Title reign, there is no denying that there were a few memorable moments. This is what happens when you cheat on the Spanish announce table. RANDY ORTON #2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eHK4rhItXQ Randy's second appearance on this list is one of my all-time favorites. To me, there is nothing funnier than a mega-star forgetting his lines and then nonchalantly asking an Irishman for help. THE DEVIL'S FAVORITE CHOKE SLAM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGVCX2ZNLDY This has to be one of the worst Choke Slams I have ever seen, but it's also one of the most interesting. While Kane didn't get a lot of power behind his finisher, it's the first time I've ever seen a Choke Slam hit in one fluid motion. So thank you, Big Show! HOLLYWOOD AUDITION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi6xSX8yk2s Batista landed a huge role in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. The Animal returned to WWE earlier this year and is rumored to be coming back after he is finished promoting the film. Hopefully he feuds with Mark Henry.

But looking at the clips in the compilation, I have one thing to ask WWE - what on earth were you thinking? ALBERTO'S BUCKET LIST http://youtu.be/U_EkCJxaw2M Alberto Del Rio is one of the most talented in-ring competitors in WWE today and his feud with the Big Show was fairly memorable. However, the most memorable part of this feud may have been this botch. RANDY ORTON #1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNx-juKgcpU I'm a big Randy Orton fan. Sure, he may be boring at times, but the Viper dominates his competitors, as well as this list full of botches and humorous mishaps. AJ LEE/NATALYA & THAT FIRED REFEREE  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfZ6f0MVOV4 I highly doubt that this is the sole reason why former WWE referee Marc Harris was let go. However, this is the moment he will always be remembered for. HANGOVER http://youtu.be/O2TrEZuCiBc CM Punk and Chris Jericho had a tremendous feud and series of match back in 2012. During this classic heel promo, Y2J accidentally slips and really hears it from the crowd. Perhaps he had some of that Jack before this segment? THE MAN FORMERLY KNOWN AS SIN CARA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBCKnNu2TFo To no surprise, the original Sin Cara has made this list. As of today, I believe he is known as Mistico and is competing in Mexico. If you ask me, he should stick to the comic books. BOOKER T < CM PUNK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywKkvLf8DpY At the time, Booker T was the managing manager of Raw. He interrupted CM Punk during a promo and we all know that's a big no no. Booker T has since learned from this mistake. DOLPH ZIGGLER? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OG7hlkX9vU Dolph Ziggler is an internet darling, and rightfully so. However, no matter how over he is and how well he sells, I had to include this rare mishap, which is actually pretty funny if you ask me. THE INFAMOUS TENSAI INCIDENT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmXdfg2Xl1o There are no words to describe this botch. I cringe every time I view it and at the time I felt horrible for Ryback because we all knew he could hit the move. But on that night it just wasn't happening for him. YOU LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTWqW0ZJL1E While people may still disagree with The Rock ending CM Punk's historic WWE Title reign, there is no denying that there were a few memorable moments. This is what happens when you cheat on the Spanish announce table. RANDY ORTON #2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eHK4rhItXQ Randy's second appearance on this list is one of my all-time favorites. To me, there is nothing funnier than a mega-star forgetting his lines and then nonchalantly asking an Irishman for help. THE DEVIL'S FAVORITE CHOKE SLAM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGVCX2ZNLDY This has to be one of the worst Choke Slams I have ever seen, but it's also one of the most interesting. While Kane didn't get a lot of power behind his finisher, it's the first time I've ever seen a Choke Slam hit in one fluid motion. So thank you, Big Show! HOLLYWOOD AUDITION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi6xSX8yk2s Batista landed a huge role in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. The Animal returned to WWE earlier this year and is rumored to be coming back after he is finished promoting the film. Hopefully he feuds with Mark Henry. KHALI BEING KHALI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovZRmpLfP5o The Great Khali was intimidating and somewhat entertaining when he first debuted in 2006. However, he has gone downhill and can now barely walk to the ring. It's sad, but we can thank him for all of the humorous moments throughout his career, including this one. STARSHIP FAIL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9gCtsINf-k John Morrison has given the WWE Universe plenty to cheer about throughout his career. He had the look and in-ring skill to make it to the top, but this botch at TLC wasn't one of his proudest moments. RANDY ORTON #3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSsvjcYET18 For every ninety perfect RKO’s that seemingly come from out of nowhere, there is one that doesn't exactly go according to plan. Who is to blame for this RKO, Big Show or the Viper himself? 6-1-NONE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wRBfpbPi8Y The WWE Universe hasn't seen Rey Mysterio in quite some time. He was mercifully booed at the 2014 Royal Rumble, despite always being a crowd favorite. This botch happened at a live event, but hey, that's still fair game to me. GTH - GO TO HELL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVMaVd2v-HM CM Punk may not be with the WWE anymore, but the GTS is still one of my favorite finishing moves of all time. Punk has often times struggled hitting the finisher on big men and this particular GTS won't be making any best in the world lists. THE CURIOUS CASE OF ALEX RILEY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im32nmdRHCA Now I'm not saying Alex Riley did or didn't sandbag Jack Swagger during this finisher, but as of today, Swagger is finally over with the crowd and Riley is now a commentator. Swags showed his strength by following through with the move - and the commentary that is expressed is pure gold. A TEDDY LONG DOUBLE FEATURE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6_cn6_y_6E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmqMynI4Fjc It's sad, but Teddy Long isn't with the WWE anymore. He's been a part of the company for a long time, but surprisingly, they didn't even write him off of television. Here are just two entertaining moments that didn't involve a tag team match. THREE STRIKES - YOU"RE OUT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcUrkwKYwUM Mickie James and Gail Kim will go down as two of the most talented female professional wrestlers in history, but this may still haunt them. Gail appears to mistime the DDT, then Mickie seems to miss the kick, then Mickie wins via a forearm to the face. Just look how pissed off Mickie looks... THE MAD RUSSIAN/UKRAINIAN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkd6yQWN6vk I don't know about you, but I thought Vladimir Kozlov had talent and could have been used a lot better in WWE. He was billed as a Russian, but is actually Ukrainian. So...there's a fun-fact for ya. RANDY ORTON #4 http://youtu.be/2966IUFS7Bc Randy Orton and the words "momentarily distracted" go hand in hand. In this particular case, Randy is confused because Kofi Kingston didn't run out and make the save at the correct time. Randy eventually said ah screw it - and we all know he and Kofi have a bit of history. I CHOOSE MY PARTNER TO BE... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVepVW0UwfA The face of WWE and current World champion delivers on the microphone. A lot of times fans criticize him for being too cheesy, but you can definitely tell that John Cena was really into this promo. 450 SPLAT http://youtu.be/AI2bn3s0wSw There isn't much to say about this Justin Gabriel mishap. However, I do want to apologize for the annoying and unnecessary replays of the 450 Splash. This was honestly the only video I can find. ICHIBAN! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JK0Txw03Os4 From what I've read, ichiban means number one, or the best, in Japanese and at the time, that was the name of Tensai's finisher. On this occasion, though, neither Tensai nor CM Punk were ichiban. BOTCHTISTA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iasrhoHbUw8 Even though this is much like the Jack Swagger/Alex Riley accident, I still find it to be entertaining. Of course, this isn't the worst mistake in the world, but hey, it's still a botch in my book. Plus, I really wanted to play on Batista name with the title. STRATUSFRACTION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Naup33be1IM Trish Stratus has held the most female championships in WWE history and is a member of the prestigious Hall of Fame. She has the looks and the skill, but you can tell that it was an off day thanks to the vicious crowd. ORIGINAL SIN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BWcWt7F8u4 During his tenure with WWE, the original Sin Cara was known for being the absolute best at botching. So, it's no surprise to see him on this list for a second time. This mishap Give credit to Chavo Guerrero for selling the move the very best he could. RANDY ORTON #5 http://youtu.be/OQmpGG78gwY I remember watching this live and thinking to myself...wow, Randy is one cool cat. This was an unexpected botch where the Viper looked legitimately injured, but he fooled us all. 450 VIPER http://youtu.be/qUzrjYY5hvc Justin Gabriel recently had an emergence on NXT after an outstanding match with Sami Zayn. As of now, it looks like Gabriel will be tagging with Tyson Kidd. Let's all hope that the "Werewolf" doesn't (or does?) feud with Orton. RIPPED PANTS? http://youtu.be/sMWLslespMY Playing SmackDown vs. Raw 2007, there are ratings given to each member on the WWE roster. I was surprised to see how over Melina was in the video game - as she was more over than John Morrison. Anyways, this was a funny mistake by the former WWE Divas champion. AWKWARD http://youtu.be/_GqJOOIebI8 I don't know if anybody finds this as funny as I do, but it's just great. Sheamus and Big Show were in the middle of a completely serious promo/debate and then the podium breaks. All three men involved, including Booker T, played this off perfectly. BELIEVE IN ROMAN REIGNS http://youtu.be/jIYQ7dwBYa4 A week after the Shield's debut, you know that they were going to be something special. They made it upon themselves to be better than Nexus and are going to go down as one of the greatest stables in history. From what I hear - Roman Reigns is a goofball. WHO MESSED WITH THE PYRO? http://youtu.be/f8uSWvOBlMg The Devil's Favorite Demon is a certified WWE Hall of Famer and an overall class act. You never hear anything bad about Kane...ever. On this occasion, perhaps somebody was messing with his pyro for a good laugh? Kane's reaction is absolutely priceless. WHAT'S UP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oroKBLCcLx4 It seems like a lot of superstars have had trouble with the ring ropes and in this case, the victim was R-Truth. I think that Truth had trouble "skinning the cat" because Morrison was interfering - but I guess we'll never know. Regardless, it's pretty funny. KHALI < RULES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_P8al0Ab1Y Oh Khali. You'd think that he would understand the rules. I guarantee Edge was telling him to not climb over the top rope, but the Punjabi Playboy does what he does, and that's whatever he wants. Michael Cole was having an absolute field day. You make the rules - and Khali will break them. RANDY ORTON #6 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmqwmMZ5yBI Thank you for taking the time to read this piece. I hope you cracked a smile at least once and enjoyed the article. I leave you all with some fireworks... What were some of your favorite botches on the list and throughout WWE history?

I know 40 is a big number, but trust me when I say that this list was trimmed down quite a bit. Humorous botches and unintentional moments from the past decade are featured in this piece, so brace yourself. For the sake of the article I had to five a time-frame, therefore,, the botches that are featured in this piece take place from 2004-2014. Now, I didn’t add Brock Lesnar dropping Hardcore Holly on his head/Lesnar’s failed Shooting Star Press or mistakes like that.  As most of us already know, Holly broke his neck and Lesnar got a concussion. Both are serious injuries and while the botches may have been humorous at the time and will always be remembered - it just isn't right to laugh about them...at least in public. As far as I know, nobody was severely injured during the taping of these mishaps. I understand that this is a completely random post, but I think that sometimes the IWC, including myself, needs a break. We all need a day off from arguing about who should or shouldn't be pushed or lashing out about Seth Rollins' new ring-gear. So sit back, relax and just enjoy some genuinely funny botches and accidents. This list is in no particular order. Enjoy. BETTER THAN PERFECT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YS8HGR4U9GE We start things off with one of the funniest promos in WWE history. Granted, Curtis Axel has come a long way since this debacle, but he will never hear the end of the genesis of McGillicutty. MIKE ADAMLE - WWE HALL OF FAME 2015? http://youtu.be/BeFiIl4i5lc New WWE fans may not remember Mike Adamle. But looking at the clips in the compilation, I have one thing to ask WWE - what on earth were you thinking? ALBERTO'S BUCKET LIST http://youtu.be/U_EkCJxaw2M Alberto Del Rio is one of the most talented in-ring competitors in WWE today and his feud with the Big Show was fairly memorable. However, the most memorable part of this feud may have been this botch. RANDY ORTON #1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNx-juKgcpU I'm a big Randy Orton fan.

AJ LEE/NATALYA & THAT FIRED REFEREE  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfZ6f0MVOV4 I highly doubt that this is the sole reason why former WWE referee Marc Harris was let go. However, this is the moment he will always be remembered for. HANGOVER http://youtu.be/O2TrEZuCiBc CM Punk and Chris Jericho had a tremendous feud and series of match back in 2012.

As of today, I believe he is known as Mistico and is competing in Mexico. If you ask me, he should stick to the comic books. BOOKER T < CM PUNK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywKkvLf8DpY At the time, Booker T was the managing manager of Raw. He interrupted CM Punk during a promo and we all know that's a big no no. Booker T has since learned from this mistake. DOLPH ZIGGLER? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OG7hlkX9vU Dolph Ziggler is an internet darling, and rightfully so. However, no matter how over he is and how well he sells, I had to include this rare mishap, which is actually pretty funny if you ask me.

To me, there is nothing funnier than a mega-star forgetting his lines and then nonchalantly asking an Irishman for help. THE DEVIL'S FAVORITE CHOKE SLAM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGVCX2ZNLDY This has to be one of the worst Choke Slams I have ever seen, but it's also one of the most interesting. While Kane didn't get a lot of power behind his finisher, it's the first time I've ever seen a Choke Slam hit in one fluid motion. So thank you, Big Show! HOLLYWOOD AUDITION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi6xSX8yk2s Batista landed a huge role in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. The Animal returned to WWE earlier this year and is rumored to be coming back after he is finished promoting the film. Hopefully he feuds with Mark Henry. KHALI BEING KHALI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovZRmpLfP5o The Great Khali was intimidating and somewhat entertaining when he first debuted in 2006. However, he has gone downhill and can now barely walk to the ring. It's sad, but we can thank him for all of the humorous moments throughout his career, including this one. STARSHIP FAIL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9gCtsINf-k John Morrison has given the WWE Universe plenty to cheer about throughout his career. He had the look and in-ring skill to make it to the top, but this botch at TLC wasn't one of his proudest moments. RANDY ORTON #3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSsvjcYET18 For every ninety perfect RKO’s that seemingly come from out of nowhere, there is one that doesn't exactly go according to plan. Who is to blame for this RKO, Big Show or the Viper himself? 6-1-NONE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wRBfpbPi8Y The WWE Universe hasn't seen Rey Mysterio in quite some time. He was mercifully booed at the 2014 Royal Rumble, despite always being a crowd favorite. This botch happened at a live event, but hey, that's still fair game to me. GTH - GO TO HELL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVMaVd2v-HM CM Punk may not be with the WWE anymore, but the GTS is still one of my favorite finishing moves of all time. Punk has often times struggled hitting the finisher on big men and this particular GTS won't be making any best in the world lists. THE CURIOUS CASE OF ALEX RILEY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im32nmdRHCA Now I'm not saying Alex Riley did or didn't sandbag Jack Swagger during this finisher, but as of today, Swagger is finally over with the crowd and Riley is now a commentator. Swags showed his strength by following through with the move - and the commentary that is expressed is pure gold. A TEDDY LONG DOUBLE FEATURE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6_cn6_y_6E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmqMynI4Fjc It's sad, but Teddy Long isn't with the WWE anymore. He's been a part of the company for a long time, but surprisingly, they didn't even write him off of television. Here are just two entertaining moments that didn't involve a tag team match. THREE STRIKES - YOU"RE OUT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcUrkwKYwUM Mickie James and Gail Kim will go down as two of the most talented female professional wrestlers in history, but this may still haunt them. Gail appears to mistime the DDT, then Mickie seems to miss the kick, then Mickie wins via a forearm to the face. Just look how pissed off Mickie looks... THE MAD RUSSIAN/UKRAINIAN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkd6yQWN6vk I don't know about you, but I thought Vladimir Kozlov had talent and could have been used a lot better in WWE. He was billed as a Russian, but is actually Ukrainian. So...there's a fun-fact for ya. RANDY ORTON #4 http://youtu.be/2966IUFS7Bc Randy Orton and the words "momentarily distracted" go hand in hand. In this particular case, Randy is confused because Kofi Kingston didn't run out and make the save at the correct time. Randy eventually said ah screw it - and we all know he and Kofi have a bit of history. I CHOOSE MY PARTNER TO BE... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVepVW0UwfA The face of WWE and current World champion delivers on the microphone. A lot of times fans criticize him for being too cheesy, but you can definitely tell that John Cena was really into this promo. 450 SPLAT http://youtu.be/AI2bn3s0wSw There isn't much to say about this Justin Gabriel mishap. However, I do want to apologize for the annoying and unnecessary replays of the 450 Splash. This was honestly the only video I can find. ICHIBAN! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JK0Txw03Os4 From what I've read, ichiban means number one, or the best, in Japanese and at the time, that was the name of Tensai's finisher. On this occasion, though, neither Tensai nor CM Punk were ichiban. BOTCHTISTA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iasrhoHbUw8 Even though this is much like the Jack Swagger/Alex Riley accident, I still find it to be entertaining. Of course, this isn't the worst mistake in the world, but hey, it's still a botch in my book. Plus, I really wanted to play on Batista name with the title. STRATUSFRACTION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Naup33be1IM Trish Stratus has held the most female championships in WWE history and is a member of the prestigious Hall of Fame. She has the looks and the skill, but you can tell that it was an off day thanks to the vicious crowd.

40 WWE Botches That Still Make us Laugh

Whether it’s finishing moves, promos or segments – everybody loves a good botch. I know 40 is a big number, but trust me when I say that this list was trimmed down quite a bit. Humorous botches and unintentional moments from the past decade are featured in this piece, so brace yourself. For the sake of the article I had to five a time-frame, therefore,, the botches that are featured in this piece take place from 2004-2014.

Now, I didn’t add Brock Lesnar dropping Hardcore Holly on his head/Lesnar’s failed Shooting Star Press or mistakes like that.  As most of us already know, Holly broke his neck and Lesnar got a concussion. Both are serious injuries and while the botches may have been humorous at the time and will always be remembered – it just isn’t right to laugh about them…at least in public. As far as I know, nobody was severely injured during the taping of these mishaps.

I understand that this is a completely random post, but I think that sometimes the IWC, including myself, needs a break. We all need a day off from arguing about who should or shouldn’t be pushed or lashing out about Seth Rollins’ new ring-gear. So sit back, relax and just enjoy some genuinely funny botches and accidents. This list is in no particular order. Enjoy.

BETTER THAN PERFECT

We start things off with one of the funniest promos in WWE history. Granted, Curtis Axel has come a long way since this debacle, but he will never hear the end of the genesis of McGillicutty.

MIKE ADAMLE – WWE HALL OF FAME 2015?

New WWE fans may not remember Mike Adamle. But looking at the clips in the compilation, I have one thing to ask WWE – what on earth were you thinking?

ALBERTO’S BUCKET LIST

http://youtu.be/U_EkCJxaw2M

Alberto Del Rio is one of the most talented in-ring competitors in WWE today and his feud with the Big Show was fairly memorable. However, the most memorable part of this feud may have been this botch.

RANDY ORTON #1

I’m a big Randy Orton fan. Sure, he may be boring at times, but the Viper dominates his competitors, as well as this list full of botches and humorous mishaps.

AJ LEE/NATALYA & THAT FIRED REFEREE 

I highly doubt that this is the sole reason why former WWE referee Marc Harris was let go. However, this is the moment he will always be remembered for.

HANGOVER

CM Punk and Chris Jericho had a tremendous feud and series of match back in 2012. During this classic heel promo, Y2J accidentally slips and really hears it from the crowd. Perhaps he had some of that Jack before this segment?

THE MAN FORMERLY KNOWN AS SIN CARA

To no surprise, the original Sin Cara has made this list. As of today, I believe he is known as Mistico and is competing in Mexico. If you ask me, he should stick to the comic books.

BOOKER T < CM PUNK

At the time, Booker T was the managing manager of Raw. He interrupted CM Punk during a promo and we all know that’s a big no no. Booker T has since learned from this mistake.

DOLPH ZIGGLER?

Dolph Ziggler is an internet darling, and rightfully so. However, no matter how over he is and how well he sells, I had to include this rare mishap, which is actually pretty funny if you ask me.

THE INFAMOUS TENSAI INCIDENT

There are no words to describe this botch. I cringe every time I view it and at the time I felt horrible for Ryback because we all knew he could hit the move. But on that night it just wasn’t happening for him.

  • Matt Gallagher

    The Brock lesnar botches are hilarious because of the injuries

  • Progressed_Now

    chant of the year “YOU FUUCKED UP YOU FUUCKED UP!!!”. and Melina is one cool cat. I miss her like crazy.

    http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/article/media_slots/photos/000/147/770/WWE-RAW-Santino-Marella_1612959_crop_340x234.jpg

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      Melina was great. I would be for WWE to bring back her and Morrison. Both are great talents.

  • Cloaker

    Shame you didn’t put that failed HBK entrance, where his chains somehow got stuck to the floor

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      I don’t recall watching that happen…I’ll look it up.

      • Progressed_Now
        • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

          Hahaha. That’s great. Wish I included it.

          • Progressed_Now

            can easily replace Orton’s WM pyro with it, because technically it wasn’t HIS botch. if stage technicians are included, then you should’ve used Taker’s Elimination Chamber entrance botch with the flames engulfing him and burning his chest.

          • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

            In the first paragraph I stated that this article was about wrestling, promo and segment botches/mishaps/mistakes that didn’t lead to serious injury. The Orton pyro mistake – I would classify that as a segment mistake. I saw and read about the Undertaker pyro accident and he suffered severe burns, therefore I didn’t include it in the article. Plus, I didn’t find it to be that funny to be honest, so perhaps I was a bit biased.

          • Cujo999

            Being fair, for any pyro sequence like that, the talent has certain marks he’s supposed to hit at certain times. Undertaker blew his spot. The pyro people should have caught it and stopped it from going off, but the initial botch is on taker.

  • Drmgiver

    Tensai wasn’t a botch, he intentionally sandbagged him.

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      The move didn’t go according to plan and/or was a mistake therefore it was a botch. Also, did Tensai say he intentionally sandbagged him? I remember everyone saying that Tensai intentionally did it when the spot happened, and it sure looks like it, but do you know if there’s any proof that he did?

      • Drmgiver

        Yeah there is. Watch it happen. lol It is obvious. Like you said, “it sure looks like it”.

        • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

          I know it looks like it – but I was seeing if you maybe read something where he actually said that he did, but he is still employed with WWE so he probably hasn’t said anything. Anyways, so you think Alex Riley did the same thing with the Jack Swagger move?

          • Drmgiver

            No. Alex actually looked to jump there. That was a botch.

  • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

    That Swagger/Riley gutwrench powerbomb actually didn’t look that bad.. Added realism and in the end it did look a lot more impressive since he used his strength, that weren’t bad.

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      Yeah I mentioned that it made Swagger look beastly – but it was still a mistake that I found to be pretty funny.

      • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

        Definitely, good mistake though, the impact looked spot on.
        Great article as well, bro, I do like these ones, good job.

        • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

          Thanks a lot, really appreciate it. I decided to post something different – give myself and others a break from the typical news stuff lol

  • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

    That Cena spit one is the greatest, “I choose my partner to be… THE ROCK! -Spitung-“

    • pwnez

      I still get a kick out of Mike Adamle’s botches. Jeff Harvey wrestling for the WEDF, woo!

    • Marvin B.

      LOL at it hanging from his lip afterwards awkwardly

      • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

        I think you can hear Michael Cole laughing towards the end of the video.

      • Ron Burgundy

        Cena is a spitter… A spitter is a quitter…

  • Zahid Zafeer
    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      This is just so painful to watch…

      • Zahid Zafeer

        Its my personal favourite! Great article by the way…

        • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

          Thanks a lot. Appreciate it!

  • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

    I forgot some of these botches.

  • Land of the SMARKS

    Great work for putting the time and effort into this.

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      Thanks a lot. Very grateful to hear positive feedback whenever it comes. I hope you enjoyed the piece.

  • Adnan

    Gail Kim actually knocked herself loopy off a top rope cross body where she hit her head on the mat, hence she cant seem to do anything for the rest of the match

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      That’s interesting. She looked perfectly fine before the DDT – thanks for letting me know.

  • brad

    Good stuff made my day.

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      Awesome to hear. Glad you enjoyed the piece.

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    I genuinely felt bad for Kane’s pyro not going off… poor guy. Even he looks so upset that it didn’t happen… :(

    • SOBI

      He seemed to be holding his laugh :D

    • Progressed_Now

      you need new glasses, he was nowhere near upset and in fact he looked amused.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Well, you might be right – i’m watching low res youtube clips on my iphone… so yeah, apologies for getting it wrong.

  • SOBI

    Great list , truly great work
    you should also add that Seth Rollins entrance botch where the barricade gave in and Rollins was so pissed he punched the floor :D

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      Thanks a lot. When did this happen? I don’t seem to recall, but it sounds familiar.

  • Marko

    The Brian Kendrick botching the supposed elimination from the Royal Rumble and telling Triple H ”I know I f**ked up!”

  • SWa

    6-1-NONE is a great title lol! Love it

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      I’m glad you caught that. Really tried to be as clever as I could haha.

  • Scott

    Wish I coulda seen the Bella Twins botch when Lita got inducted into the HoF and they tried to do her turnbuckle move she used to do with the Hardy’s where was that at?

  • Summer Rae Dudley

    The Randy Orton and Royal Rumble Pyro fail gets me all the time.
    At Wrestlemania 25 it will be that damn Wrestlemania sign vs. Randy Orton.

  • Eskylee

    My fav is Orton asking Shemus what’s my line

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      He tried to be so discreet about it. Pretty funny.

  • I hate Micheal Cole

    You know what I don’t get how come that mess Mike Adamle got fired for being a botchtastic idiot yet that fool as idiot Michael botchfest Cole is still allowed to be in WWE after all these years. I mean seriously Micheal Cole probably botches up more on the regular then Adamle did yet the WWE keeps his fool a$$ around they mind as well hire Adamle back if there gonna just let that idiot Cole continue to screw up week after week. I’m convinced Coles screwing Stephanie or he’s Vinces illegitimate son or something because there’s no way a fool like him can continuously screw up and not be fired.

    • gdaddy1971

      Michael Cole really isn’t that bad. He does a pretty good job on both shows each week as well as the PPV’s. Adamle was just horrendous.

      • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

        I really changed my outlook on Cole after the Jerry Lawler incident. He is a class act and his commentating style is geared more towards the younger Cena-esque type fans – but he is a quality commentator.

        • Progressed_Now

          lol you mean that little speech he gave to the camera? that was Vince in his ear telling him what to say.

          • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

            Well regardless, he did very well with it considering it was a very serious situation. I think a lot of people started to respect Cole more after that.

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    this article has honestly made my night!…xD…I will have to say though another good one is the R-Truth/Wisconsin incident…xD…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnsbgTcy9MQ

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      I’m glad you enjoyed the article! Damn, I forgot about this – totally slipped my mind. Classic moment.

      • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

        thanks…=P…and yeah, definitely goes down as my favourite R-Truth moment (besides the heel turn)…xD

  • J’vo

    Goldberg entrance and Kane slip rope, Summerslam 2003,that’s the funny one,but they edit that at DVD version or The Rock when his glasses slip

    • http://www.sescoops.com/author/adrianf/ Adrian Fylonenko

      I could have added a hell of a lot more botches/mishaps – but I wanted a good time frame all these occurred from 2004-2014 – basically a decades worth. Love the Rock dropping his classes. Foley was hilarious.

  • Puppet H

    I swear man that Randy Orton pyro during RR had me DYING.

  • Curtis Axel FACE of WWE

    Just once, during a Rumble, when we have the usual spot of an eliminated person coming back in to throw someone out – just once I would like to see the referees NOT ALLOW the elimination to count. Let the guy get back in! You CANNOT be eliminated by a wrestler who is already out ! RULES ! Also, I think both Macho Man jumped over the top rope once when going after Jake The Snake. His self-elimination DID NOT count. But at another time, Andre The Giant stepped over the top, to get away from Jake The Snake, and his self-elimination DID count.

  • joshidanger

    I really don’t actually think that the 450 splash on Orton was Gabriels fault. Orton moved wrong. ORTON BOTCHED AGAIN.

  • Mr_DJ

    I thought Tensai was sandbaggin Ryback…

    One’s gotta wonder how many pyro guys they’ve fired :p

  • PepsiMexi84

    LOL.. love this list! So glad you did this needed this laugh today :)

  • Ron Burgundy

    “THE SILVERDOME… I MEAN SUPER DOME” I think it’s clear that the Hulkster was focusing a little too much on trying to get some Dome…
