Top Ten Botched Spots in WWE History


  • CC

    So you think it was supposed to happen like that? Don’t be so naive. Yes the cage was cable tied, but was not supposed to give way entirely.
    And certainly was not supposed to feature Foley going straight through at full velocity and crash to the mat so hard.
    He was supposed to hand and drop.

  • CC

    The only reason I would put HIAC on it is because the move involved another wrestler performing a move, but yes it was more down to equipment failure than a botch I agree.

  • Soulshroude

    Good point.

  • Sparti Love

    Then do a Top 20

  • Charlie Bronson

    By that definition Foley at the HIAC wasn’t a botch in the traditional sense either, the cage breaking was an equipment failure as well. No one knew it wouldn’t hold his weight.

  • Keith Learmonth

    It was planned. It was not planned to happen there and then.
    There’s a reason ‘Taker had to improv with Terry Funk for a while.

  • Dirt McGirt

    Watch the match, you can see the zip ties fly off. Need further proof? The awkward way Taker chokeslammed him.

  • CC

    It was not planned. Read Micks book.

    I considered that, but it wasn’t really a botch in the traditional sense, it was an equipment failure. But if you do classify it as a botch, it would certainly be the biggest and worst.

  • CC

    But come on, you really put some of those over Foley at Hell in a cell?

  • Gokul Nair

    All good ones mate, but I had to keep it down to ten.

  • Soulshroude

    The OWEN HART death! Still a botch in my book, yeah.

  • Soulshroude

    OWEN HART!

  • Soulshroude

    The Randy Orton botch not only broke his collar bone, but he was literally INCHES away from the upside down STEEL STEPS. That FALL could have ENDED his LIFE!!!

    Cena vs Seth

    I would have been pissed as well and said screw this crap, let’s finish this!

  • Soulshroude

    Apologies, things seem to mix together with extreme botches.

  • Dirt McGirt

    To those mentioning Mankind through the top of the cage: that was a planned spot. Go back and watch and you can see the zip ties snapping and falling. As I understand it, it wasn’t suppose to give when it did, but it was certainly supposed to go.

    Kurt Angle/Shane McMahon with the glass not breaking?
    Mick Foley through the top of hell in a cell?
    Lita’s suicide dive, landing on her face?
    Taka getting eliminated from the Rumble?
    Kurt Angle breaking Hardcore Holly’s arm with a moonsault?
    Neville’s ankle break?
    Goch knocks Enzo out?
    HHH pedigree on Marty Garner?
    Pretty much anything by the original Sin Cara?

    Mick Foley getting chokeslamed through the Hell in a Cell and the chair falling on his face could be one also.

  • oppa

    That was in WCW.

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    The most famous botch was Sid Vicious corner second rope ankle break.
