When Wrestling Fans Get Owned
As wrestling fans, it's part of our job to heckle. It's hard to imagine the industry if we didn't.
However, sometimes the heckling can get a bit out of hand. Sometimes fans get too rowdy, hit a wrestler's nerve, or are even dumb enough to rush the ring.
So, in honor of those fans and the due justice they had coming to them, here are some of the greatest instances where wrestling fans get straight-up owned.
Undertaker: What? Oh Wait
When the "What?" chants break out, there is never a time where WWE fans are more united. It's fun, it's powerful and it's the biggest craze amongst the people.
However, those very chants can sometimes backfire on the ones who abuse it. Under his bad-ass heel persona, the Undertaker seizes the opportunity and turns the insult on the fans.
Chris Jericho: He's from Winnipeg
In addition to being very polite neighbors, the Canadians are a very proud people.
So, when you get their city wrong, they may lash out at you. Here, Chris Jericho corrects a heckler who thought he was from Toronto.
Batista: That's What I Thought
We've all seen them at wrestling events—that fan who tries to act like a tough guy, but really isn't.
Batista decides to expose one of them. And the fact that he was a Cena fan makes it that much better.
Jeff Jarrett: Invitation Accepted
There is a list of things one should not do, which may entail jumping off a cliff, consuming rat poison or telling your wife she's fat.
However, as wrestling fans, the No. 1 no-no is accepting a wrestler's invitation to the ring when he's ready to fight. Why, you ask? Because once you go over that railing and into that ring, he's totally in his rights to whale on you. And the odds are that he will.
Watch as a TNA fan decides to take his shot at Jeff Jarrett. Unfortunately for him, he gets a rude greeting from Jarrett and what seemed like half of the promotion's roster.
Not only does this guy prove that invading a ring is wrong, but also shows us that wearing a Rey Mysterio mask doesn't make you Rey Mysterio.
CM Punk: Hook, Line and Sinker
Although this turned out to be pretty controversial, CM Punk really gives it to a fan during a house show. The Straight Edge Messiah baits the guy in and embarrasses him.
(This isn't the only instance where Punk owned a fan. Due to overly graphic language, I did not post this other example on the slide.)
The Rock: Toronto
When it came to working the mic, no one was better than The Rock. The Great One possessed an unparalleled ability to grab the attention of every single person in the arena. He could instantly connect with the crowd just by picking the microphone.
Here, The Rock lays down one of the greatest and most entertaining promos of all time. Unfortunately for the people of Toronto, they were the victim of this verbal beat down.
Shawn Michaels: Montreal's Most Hated
Since we're on the subject of owning Canadian crowds, here is Shawn Michaels making a visit to the hostile Montreal crowd. Needless to say, we all know Montreal isn't too fond of the Heartbreak Kid.
But after Shawn cut this perfect promo, everyone should have been his fan.
(The crowd reaction to the Bret Hart song really makes this segment an unforgettable one. Too bad it was all just a trick, courtesy of the man who screwed their hero.)
Sabu: Don't Touch the Turban
We can only learn one thing from this incident: Don't touch Sabu's turban—or else!
Mark Curtis: The Ultimate Referee
Although the greatest referee is in fact Justin King, Mark Curtis made his case way back in the days of WCW.
As a fan tries to rush the ring during a match between Dean Malenko and Psychosis, Curtis delivers a flying knee and a guillotine choke to the weakling.
Samoa Joe: Gotcha!
Joe's gonna kill you. And if you heckle Joe, Joe's gonna own you.
Here's another instance of a pretend tough guy getting embarrassed by a wrestler. Joe even adds to the insult by laughing hysterically at the cowardly fan.

Thank you for viewing ,and if there's one thing you take away from this slideshow, it's not to touch Sabu's turban.
