This last week has been a doozy. The cameramen being overheard at Survivor Series talking when they kept losing transmission.

Miss Jackie's accidental breast exposure, though I can't say I saw it myself. Maybe it was edited by dear Sky Sports in the UK.

Was it me or what, but when Brock Lesnar was chastising his Survivor Series team, they all looked as equally tall as each other. I'd swear the floor in that dressing room was sloped, as no way did LEsnar look the 10 inches smaller than Big Show that he is.

I'd bet WWE didn't want Brock to look overly dwarfed.

Here in Canada, during Smackdown, the ummmm...promo with the Bashams and Shaniqua wasn't showed. It was pre-empted by advertising for a house show in Oshawa, Ontario.

Funny how that happens. Mind you, the Bashams in their S&M garb doesn't really interest me, so it's all good.

And lets not forget how the steel steps MAGICALLY move out of the way when Undertaker does his lap, but are right back where they should be when he goes to enter the ring. Did CRZ ever learn how they did that?

Same here. SmackDown came back from commercial, and Michael Cole was talking about an interview with the Bashams, and I could have sworn I didn't see it.

I believe the Undertaker harnessed his spooky undead powers and levitated them out of the way. Or something.

When Undertaker became the American Badass, he traded in his power to control the lights and music for the power to move the steps on command. He's just nice enough to use the power to move them back afterward, too.

Heck !

Warrior has aged in the last few years. I've seen Bret Hart with his blonde hair looking aged, but that's partly due to his stroke no doubt.

Some of my personal favorite WWE(F) flubs have been from The Game himself. HHH is one of the sports loudest "spot-callers" and in the past it's been funny to try and pickup on them.

My personal favorite audible was in the 1999 Royal Rumble when a DX Triple H audibly yelled to Val Venis "If I throw you over the ropes, do you think you can hold on?"...

However, still nothing can touch the 1991 WCW Wrestle War PPV where the camera catches Sid and Rick Steiner having a conversation during "War Games". I'm talking it was as close a camera shot as was humanly possible.

Sid says to Rick as clear as a backstage promo "I'm gonna throw you to the ropes now, Ready? Here we Go!"

Definitley not one of kayfabe's better moments to be sure.

For some reason i remember eddie swearing in his match with the Big Show for the United States title. The Show slaps him HARD on his injured back and eddie says You mother****** Paul.

They would have probably edited that out now through

Alright, now we're in my territory! I love the spot calling - let's see if you guys can remember this great one...At the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, Shamrock goes outside the ring to scold his sister for helping Val Venis, and she apparently forgets what she's supposed to do, so right in front of the camera, close up, Ken goes "Slap Me!", and she slaps him - still my favorite.

And we still yell "SIDE SLAM!" all the time from a Triple H/Big Show match where Triple H screamed the spot from the other side of the ring.

I don't remember what event it was, but Ken Shamrock was fighting outside the ring and his sister Ryan was right there. Ken then went up to Ryan and stared at her for a second and yelled, I repeat, yelled "SLAP ME" - and she obliged, funny stuff.

Just a few months ago I remember a bunch to tech problems backstage. How can we forget Trish & Lita walking by Jericho & Christian who's checking them out and we hear "Camera 6 is your worse case scenario"... Then a week later Trish and Lita were sitting backstage mending their wounds from Molly & Gail with ice packs on their body looking upset and Christian walks by and gives a little point and wink. Then stops and we hear "Lets do it Again" Christian walks back while Lita with icepack to her side giggling at whatever Trish was saying. Now thinking back who would have guessed that quick technical problem filled skits would be major storylines a few months later.

There is one moment that sticks with me for years but I can't even confirm it. It was a WCW World War 3 PPV. Where they had a three ring battle royal. And they had multiple announcing desks announcing the match(the action in their ring). And Tony Schiavone was in one table with Hennan and Lee Marshall was on one another one close to another ring. A wrestler went flying into Marshall's table and Tony S said "We almost lost Lee Marshall". And then I swore I heard Marshall mumbling under his breath "full of sh*t"

How about Rico waiting on the top rope for Jeff Hardy to knock him off, yelling "Come on, Jeff, Dammit!"

Also, I vaugely remember during the match that HHH won his 3rd WWF title from Big Show, Hunter loudly saying "Sideslam" just before, suprise! Show delivers a Sideslam to HHH.

Sean Waltman's last run in the WWE was less than successful, kayfabe-wise.

Remember the First Blood match he had on RAW against Jericho where he couldn't find the bottle under the ring? There was Jericho lying in the ring and the camera cut to a view over X-Pac's shoulder as he dug under the ring apron, searching for several seconds in vain until finally he made these aggravated hand motions and screamed "WHERE'S THE BOTTLE?" then threw a medium-sized temper tantrum. Remember that? Good times, that.

Then there was that time Bradshaw had to hold someone -- Mideon, I believe it was -- in the powerbomb setup position for a solid minute because Viscera, running in on the hardcore match, slipped and totally wiped out on the floor. The camera panned over and we saw Viscera run in, then slide out of control and keep going past the vantage point of the audience as Bradshaw had to visibly stop going for the powerbomb for a second.

According to Heenan, it was out of the blue - he freaked out because he wasn't expecting it and because Pillman grabbed his neck, which Heenan has had problems with in the past.

And Rico getting pissed at Jeff in that spot was understandable, because Jeff was fucking stuff up big-time the whole match - he screwed up the railrunner, missed a few other spots, and was noticeably late in the spot Rico was talking about. Frustration just boiled over, I guess. Interestingly enough, all of this (the blown spots, Rico being pissed off) was edited out when the match was released on DVD (the match was Rico/Three Minute Warning v. Buh Buh/Spike/Jeff Hardy at Survivor Series 2002).

Hah! I remember the Jeff Hardy-Rico one quite well. Here are a few others:

- Andre the Giant's phantom slap of Bobby Heenan (missed by a mile) at WMVI, which Heenan still sold.
- Flair-Fujinami at the first Superbrawl where you can visibly see Flair setting up the 'I get caught on the top rope and slammed to the ground' spot, complete with Flair putting Fujinami's hands in position.
- Watching one of the early Royal Rumble's on a friends satellite dish, at the end they accidentally started showing Jesse Ventura, Mr. Perfect and The Genius hamming it up when they were supposed to be cutting a promo of some sort. There was also one time when Mean Gene yelled at someone to put their cigarette out, but I can't remember when that was....

If Andre HAD hit Heenan, he would've probably knocked him out cold. He didn't miss by THAT much.

The Okerlund cigarette bit was in Flair's post-match interview at the '92 Rumble - it's on the Flair DVD.
