Top Five Funniest Moments in Pro Wrestling

5. bWo as KISS

The blue World order (Stevie Richards and The Blue Meanie) provided the comedy in the old ECW with their hilarious parodies. They spoofed Shawn Michaels and Diesel, The Blue Bloods, and other WWF and WCW wrestlers.

Their crowning achievement came when they teamed with Super Nova and Donn E. Allen to dress up as KISS and perform "Rock & Roll All Night."

The crowd at the ECW Arena went absolutely bonkers, especially when the KISS members did the "Fabulous Fargo Strut."


4. The Clown, The King, and the Six Dwarves

Jerry “The King” Lawler teamed up with three mini-kings (Queasy, Cheezy, and Sleazy) to take on Doink the Clown and his three small clowns (Dink, Wink, and Pink) at Survivor Series 1994.

My favorite part of this match was the chicken fight. Dink was on Doink’s shoulders, so Lawler got the idea to sit on Sleazy’s shoulders to clobber Dink.

Poor Sleazy tried to hold Lawler’s weight, but they both came crashing down.

3. Chris Jericho: Master of 1,004 Holds

In WCW, Chris Jericho was feuding with Dean Malenko (The Master of 1,000 Holds) over the Cruiserweight title. In order to pop his opponent’s bubble, Jericho claimed to be the “Master of 1,004 Holds.”

Jericho brought a computer printout to the ring and attempted to read off all of his holds. The producers cut to a commercial, but he was still reading when they came back.

The funniest part is that he kept padding his total of holds by re-using “armbar.”


2. The Rock Shoots Down Billy Gunn

The WWF continued its relentless push of Billy Gunn as he won the 1999 King of the Ring tournament.

However, the Rock put him in his place and essentially derailed his entire singles career with one interview.

The Rock played the dual roles of a praying Billy Gunn and God:

“God, I won the King of the Ring, but my problem is that I still ABSOLUTELY SUCK!”

“Now listen here, Bobby…”

“The name’s Billy.”'


That was the debut of the phrase The Rock would use for the rest of his career.


1. Austin Appreciation Night

Most people remember this episode of Raw for the ending, when Kurt Angle sprayed "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and the WCW/ECW Alliance with milk.

However, the best part came just before the milk bath, when the Alliance members sang “Wind Beneath Our Ring” to Austin. It was their version of “Wind Beneath My Wings.”

First, Stephanie McMahon tried to get accomplished singer Lilian Garcia to lead the song, but when Lilian couldn’t get excited about singing to Austin, Stephanie herself screeched out the lead vocals.

As the icing on the cake, the lyrics were on the Titantron with a “follow the bouncing Austin head” to help everyone to sing along.
