A failed gimmick match stings to watch.
In an attempt to amplify our excitement, bookers have tried nearly everything; wrestlers throwing each other into the Gulf of Mexico, wearing diapers after they've lost or battling it out in a hog pen.
Sometimes I'm embarrassed to be a wrestling fan.
The following matches are poorly conceived and poorly executed. They range from yawn-inducing to cringe-worthy and feature shark cages, dead fish and variation after variation of the steel cage.
The list will spotlight contests where the wrestlers' skills are hampered and hidden, where the audience is confused and appalled. Enjoy?
Honorable mentions go to the King of the Road, Chamber of Blood, Chamber of Horror, mixed tags with little people, Punjabi Prison, and Scaffold Matches.
