WWE's latest controversial finish between Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan, this time at WWE Battleground, has not been well-received by fans.
Coming off Night of Champions, which resulted in refunds based on a questionable finish that was later reversed, WWE's non-finish at Battleground only made matters worse.
Big Show taking out both WWE championship competitors, meaning no new WWE champion as advertised, brings to mind other finishes that were ineffective in awarding a match to a clear-cut winner.
Finishes listed here were either awkwardly executed, subject to ridicule, flat-out botched or a combination of all three.
The overlying implication of a match finish is resolution. There is a sense of finality to a finish, and when this finality eludes viewers—not to mention pay-per-viewers—unenviable backlash follows.
