I don't know about all of you, but I find wrestling in general to be pretty funny when screws up a line or a set piece screws up someone's promo. The best example I can think of is The Shockmaster's big debut, where he bursts through the wall, trips, and loses his helmet. A more recent example would be when Hogan couldn't start the motorcycle to chase Undertaker into a pretaped backstage skit. So, what are some of your favorite heretofore unmentioned f-ups?
I think what's more entertaining is seeing how the wrestlers ad lib to cover it. For example, I remember last year Jericho came out to talk to Vince (in Edmenton, I believe) and was given a bad mic. So Vince covers and says "look at that, the man got a Canadien microphone."
Mean Gene: "You know, I don't think it's a question - Goldberg, I don't think it's a question of who's next, I think it's a question of who's left?" Goldberg: "No, see, that's where you're wrong. It ain't who's left, it's - WHO'S NEXT?"

Then there was the time Austin and McMahon were cutting a promo on each other in the ring (I think there was a third person involved as well) and McMahon's mike was cutting off. Austin grabbed it and threw it into the crowd. Then he grabbed the next mike and did the same thing. I think he threw three total when McMahon proclaimed "That's a ten thousand dollar microphone!"
When DX reformed in late 99 and were feuding with Vince. Vince's mic went out and Triple H said something along the lines of "You own a multi-billion dollar company and you STILL can't find a mic that works?"
I still remember the time Crash tried to do a tope or something like that on Raw one time. He made a run-up, jumped as high as he could...and got caught up on the top rope. Poor little bastard...

Originally posted by Super Shane SpearI seem to remember a certain match at Royal Rumble 2k1 between Ivory and Chyna that was worse.
No way. I never saw Ivory or Chyna just fall down without being touched. Best part of that match was the look on Trish's face right after Trish did the top-rope bulldog and Jackie sold it worse than anyone on the roster (including Hogan) could have. I think she could have punched her.
How 'bout the time Rock called Nash "Big Daddy Bitch" and didn't tell him beforehand and they "had heat"?
My favorite was the run in, where the guy dressed like Chris Jericho jumped in the ring while Rock was cutting a promo ON Chris Jericho and then security beat the guys ass, while Rock ad-libbed "Why don't you get your jerk-off dad outta' the ring!" Jericho couldn't stop laughing. Best part was this was on Smackdown and they kept it in.
Also, if you wanna' watch someone whose off mic ad-libs crack me up, watch Angle.
Acutally, there's a drinking game where you take a sip if Kurt whoo's, take a big drink if Kurt says "It's True, it's True" and drink a whole beer everytime Kurt ad-libs "son of a bitch" or "Oh yeah" off mic (oh yeah usually accompianies his run in's and successes). He does it EVERY SINGLE TIME! you can almost set your watch by it he does it so frequently.
Edit: I stand corrected, this took place on a RAW, Smackdown didn't happen for a nother month. I stand corrected.

I am the consumer and your product is not living up to my expectations. I could open up an Andrew Gilkison message board and cry about it, but that's a waste of my time. In the meantime, I would suggest you work on improving your product. Thank you.
Watching RAW and Smackdown doesn't cost anymore than your posts do. And so, like a good consumer, I'm tuning you out.
From the desk of Swordsman Yen A while back, when The Rock was cutting a promo backstage in front of his "dressing room", Pat Patterson opens the door, and quickly closes it when he realizes they're on live.
What happened to James Mitchell? Is he completely retired from the business, because they could bring him in tomorrow and he'd instantly be one of the best promo men on the roster, on the level of Heyman.
