The Funniest Promo Botches in Wrestling History, Part 2
They're funny, they're spontaneous and they last an eternity.
And most of all, we love them as wrestling fans.
That's right, I'm talking about promo botches. Although they aren't scripted, promo botches are sometimes the greatest moments in the industry.
So since the first edition was a success, here's Part II of wrestling's funniest promo botches.
It's Botchtista himself kicking off this new edition of the funniest promo botches. I'm sure everyone has seen this one.
This botch needs no introduction because it is not only welcomed, but it is allowed.
Who says wrestlers aren't into politics? Well by the looks of this promo, Hulk Hogan.
In an interview with Mean Gene, Hulk Hogan addresses his opponent at the time, Sgt. Slaughter. Hogan goes on to compare the title run of Slaughter to the reign of an infamous figure.
You may have heard of him...
The most overwhelming aspect of promos is that they are live. That puts a fair amount of pressure on the wrestler when they are trying to speak.
I'm not sure if Sycho Sid was aware that this interview with Jim Ross was live, but it sure didn't look like it.
Here is yet another classic botch from Sid.
I hate to break it to you, but even Shawn Michaels goes through his share of promo botches.
Michaels is undoubtedly the greatest entertainer this business has ever seen. But that doesn't mean he wasn't prone to a screw-up here and there.
Apparently in this promo, Shawn Michaels and the Heartbreak Kid aren't the one in the same.
Road Warrior Hawk
This botch is a little different from the rest. Why?
Because it doesn't belong to the subject or the interviewer of this promo. Instead of getting the obvious screw-up from Vader or Sunny, we get it from a special guest.
And our special guest is none other than Road Warrior Hawk.
Scott Steiner has battled the English language his entire life. Sometimes you can't understand what he's saying, sometimes he can't say what he means and sometimes he rambles off into oblivion.
But this time, Big Poppa Pump forgets the name of his opponent, Matt Morgan.
Oh boy. That's all that needs to be said about this one.
Enjoy the mic skills of the one and only, Eli Cottonwood.
There is no doubt that The Miz is one of the industry's best talkers. He can control the crowd, entertain the audience and get his point across as WWE"s biggest heels.
But believe it or not, The Miz wasn't always as smooth as he is now on the mic.
Take a look at his first appearance on Monday Night Raw, which was an extremely painful one.
I am not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure you don't have a leg inside of your leg.
For a brief moment during this promo, Owen Hart may have thought different about his brother Bret.
