10 Best Ever Excuses For Losing A Wrestling Match


[Applause] do you know what Bobby Heenan did after old squeeze lex luger had turned his back on him to become mr. america he watched the former narcissist slam Yokozuna on the USS Intrepid and instantly claimed it was a hip toss as the rules had stated that challengers had to pick up the man from Japan in such a manner the brain instantly said it should be ruled null and void what a damn genius it’s just one example of wrestlers coming up with amazing reasons as to why someone else should lose and this goes for Windows actually in the match do the same in order of make-believe you can have fun when you don’t come out the other end the winner because you knew what the deal was beforehand different if you’re in a sporting team going into a major Cup final but when performance is key to the pageantry around it you should turn it up to 11 some wrestlers are so good at it they actually shine in defeat so let’s look at some wonderful reasonings as to why someone wasn’t able to walk away from the ring with their hands raised I’m Simon from what culture remember to subscribe this is the 10 best ever excuses for losing a wrestling match number 10 Santino Marella wasn’t ready was there ever a better comedy figure in WWE than Santino arguably not everything he did he did by throwing himself into it full hoggin because of that he was darn hilarious I’m still sad didn’t win the World title the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in 2012 I thought it would have been a moment for the ages a few years prior to this he was still winning fans over when he charged to the ring at the Royal Rumble 2009 looking like he was ready to take the thing by storm it was a little too up for this because as soon as he slid in the ring Kane spied him from afar and closed him right over the top rope the official time was one second anybody else probably wouldn’t have made the most of this but Marella’s protests that he wasn’t ready an excuse of child uses when they lose at Mario Cart meant it didn’t matter he’d just broken a record nobody once the crowd laughed their asses off as they remembered why they liked this guy so much to begin with a testament to both the individual and the character I am always alright with spots like this better than Santino being a ghost in the fing or worse sat in the back because nobody could come up with any ideas for him nah man I Chris Jericho cries conspiracy when you think about it Chris Jericho has basically spent two decades throwing out catchphrases and one-liners that always hit their mark it’s hard to come up with one and y2j has about 46 even that nickname I just said counts arguably he was no better at this than when he was on top of his powers in WCW in 1998 then he was kind of allowed to do whatever the hell he wanted after losing the cruiserweight title to Dean Malenko it shocked the world by returning under a mask at slamboree Jericho didn’t mince his words this was a conspiracy and he was gonna prove that it went right to the top of the company and yes that included Ted Turner who else’s Malenko allowed to get involved in this fashion Chris came across like a total dick which was the intent he was so determined to get this sorted he decided to take it to the President of the United States so he headed off to Washington DC as we were treated to a series of ridiculous skits as he tried to get Bill Clinton to sort it out obviously Jericho was unsuccessful which led him to believe that Clinton was also in on this to him when you watch it today it’s hard to figure out why World Championship Wrestling weren’t more keen to let the man who loves the bubbly into the main event scene clearly had what it took number eight Hulk Hogan cries for help oh go gonna set on many occasions that when he lost his WWE title to the ultimate warrior at WrestleMania six and you already had a plan in mind not only would he kick-out at 3.2 seconds after being pinned but he would also make sure to hand the championship to the warrior so the blue line the arena were on him sounds awful but it worked so make a battement he will what he did manage to get his shoulder up just milliseconds too late though he intended to disguise and appeared to plead to a greater power to try and sort this all out not sure what the Hulk’s respected to happen unless he believed time travel was about to be born then and there he was wrong all of this was Hogan protecting his spot which he did masterfully and it didn’t really feel like he lost given how he acted somehow yes people thought this was nothing to do with his skill as a wrestler it’s all down to some sort of spiritual magic working against him you’d be well within your rights to assume Hogg had just been beaten by the better man but I imagine the first person to tell you you were wrong would be wearing red and yellow tights number 7 Ric Flair gets a taste of his own medicine we all know that Ric Flair was the dirtiest player in the game doing whatever it takes to win he took it a step further before he clashed with the Macho Man Randy Savage WrestleMania rate by getting in his opponents head before the bell had even rung countless doctored photos that seemed to suggest savages wife Miss Elizabeth was having an affair with the Nature Boy were throwing in front of the Macho man’s face with Randy not appreciating it fact it drove him crazy it meant when the match kicked off for real Savage went nuts this was a coarse Flair and then manager mr. Perfect’s plan and it allowed Ric to get the upper hand and naturally start cheating as much as he could any way he could bend the rules he would it looked like savage had made a terrible mistake instead he was actually learning after rolling Ric up the Metro man also grabbed a handful of tights to get the three as if to remind Slick Rick that there’s no actions without consequences Flair was livid about this despite the obvious and freaked out afterwards claiming it was all utter bullshit only the 16-time world champion could have made this work like he did and it’s another example of why he was ironically the man could do anything number 6 Buff Bagwell blames the Booker’s if you ever wanted to know why WCW died this is a good a story as any back in October 1999 Buff Bagwell was told he was getting a push wasn’t even the worst idea as buff did have a following and with the right story we may be able to pull this off unfortunately as was the way in the late 90s World Championship we had to make it the most convoluted and stupid thing ever before he even had the match Bagwell was telling us that he was the chosen one and that he had been told that exact word by management why then fans asked was he acting like a right moron when he fought the Parker just an hour later not only did he mock his own taunts but the fight was awful and it was all because of how Bagwell was behaving quite simply wouldn’t play ball as it turned out within the narrative Buffett found out that he was booked to lose so deliberately performed like an idiot in some kind of protest it not only broke what wrestling is but it meant his excuse was he was mad on-screen because behind the scenes he had told he couldn’t win but that was also storyline don’t worry if that hurts your brain that hurts everybody’s brain just bad all around and we should never talk about it again I’m a fine Dana Brooke just admit she’s gonna lose when Dana Brooke accepted an open challenge from Ronda Rousey she did so by revealing straight away that she would likely lose as a good attitude Dana happening right in the middle of Ronda heading to Wrestlemania Brooke had a microphone in their hand before she tackled the baddest woman on the planet and with a slight wobble in her voice said that she didn’t really think she could win and that she knew she wasn’t some big-time fighter only that she was right Rousey then proceeded to absolutely beat the who however as if it was a legit brawl to be fair though Dana was so honest with all of this or at least that’s how she came across but she didn’t dear herself to the audience if WWE had been so inclined to follow up on this Brooke may be further along in her career especially as most other wrestlers say she goes out of her way to work and improve in her own time outside of that however it was still someone we were meant to see as a wrestler going yo you’re gonna smash me up and then getting smashed up don’t really know why you do that if you were so sure it was a terrible idea before Big Show just wants to have fun inspired by Cyndi Lauper I’m sure after the Big Show hit a bit of a lull post WrestleMania 2000 he found himself being used as a comedy figured quite quickly wasn’t the worst thing in the world a show was actually quite apt in it and seeing him as Val Venis Rikishi and The Godfather is still videos you can watch now and shake your head in the right way liyan wrestling unfortunately this soon manifested itself with him clocking up quite a big lost record such as when he blew a tag team title shot as he team with Kurt Angle because show was too busy acting like Fat Bastard from the Austin Powers movies so old now I’m gonna guess some people are gonna have to go look that up thankfully for him he had one more gimmicky could parody and that was Hulk Hogan as we learned even when someone dresses up as the Hulkster they’re allowed to crush their opponents as Big Show did at backlash mm where he owned angle in no time at all while pretending to be the immortal one something to think about if you’re trying to come up with a character right now just be Hogan is easy number three Zack saber blames Boris Johnson the best thing about Zack Sabre jr. is that he’s so smooth in the ring and I’m not banging outside of it he never loses his cool when he’s fighting but if he gets defeated and somebody puts a microphone in his hand you never know how he’s gonna react he could literally say anything this was backed up when he couldn’t get his momentum going in the 2019 New Japan g1 climax and then lost the British heavyweight championship to Tanner Hoshi at rule Quest his response to tell everybody that it wasn’t his fault and it was the imploding British government who had to blame especially Prime Minister Boris Johnson if it wasn’t for brexit and the Conservative Party none of this would have happened and he was sick and tired of having to deal with it all subsequent promos were equal parts of arias and somewhat truthful and it made Zack stand out a mile who else was doing stuff like this even if there was the risk that it may be lost on some people it was a tremendous way to remain topical while also trying to find again at of jail free card for not being a great success in the ring erupt number 2 Steve Austin and Bret Hart don’t actually lose it’s not like stone cold ever made a big deal about this but that was the point his rival Bret Hart did and it’s a trick that Vince McMahon has deployed numerous times throughout the years beginning when the rattlesnake screwed Bret Hart out of the WWE title at the Royal Rumble and the final four pay-per-view it struck a chord with the Hitman who started to moan a lot the thing is he was right in most of what he was saying and because heart felt like he had a proper gripe he was great in the role after all he didn’t win the title against Sid justice because Shawn Michaels got involved he didn’t win the Royal Rumble because of the aforementioned Texan who also cost him the big belt by smashing him with a chair when it was on the line against Sid if anyone was being treated unfairly it was the best there was their best there is and the best there ever will be Brett couldn’t figure out why WWE kept letting this happen and while he had excuses it wasn’t what the fans wanted to hear so they turned on him without this there’s no fuel for the feud with Austin a fact that’s made even more important when you remember how WrestleMania 13 went down either almost cruel twist don’t cold never actually lost to Brett’s because despite being caught in the Sharpshooter he passed out causing the referee to just call it the irony wasn’t lost on the Hitman who used all this to drive his character forward and we wonder why wrestling was better back then number one diesel blames the suits feasel did not have a good year as WWE Champion in 1995 fans weren’t buying it and the financials showed that leaving Bret Hart to take the title from him in his third attempt when he’s small packages way to victory this made Big Daddy cold man as it would leaving him to beat up some referees and jackknife powerbomb ha over and over again to underline how displeased he was he may have been beaten fair and square but he didn’t see it that way and he wanted to tell everybody why this happened on Raw where Kevin Nash blamed his gimmick and booking quite quickly you realized the former champ actually believed what he was saying and was aiming all of this at one Vincent Kennedy McMahon clearly diesel didn’t think he had been used in the right way meaning that the downward line on the graph wasn’t his fault the best line came and he said tighten suits a reference at WWE had seen him as a killer and then robbed him of all his weapons and it’s only made Nash far more interesting that he had been previously before his time some will say and I think that may actually be fair
