Five most epic insults used in the WWE
On-mic skills are vital to succeed in pro-wrestling, and popular wrestlers like The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin were as entertaining with the mic as they were inside the ring. One has to be funny with the remarks and insults to garner a response from fans. We bring you five of the best insults ever used in the WWE.
Billy Gunn, a Degeneration-X member, could never establish himself as a singles star. Someone who entered the picture almost at the same time, Edge went on to win the King of the Ring in 2001. When Gunn came out to berate him, Edge retorted, "You sound like a human vacuum cleaner, managing to both suck and blow at the same time".
AJ Lee was one of the best female characters, and she was great with the mic as well as carried her gimmick strongly. While in a feud with the Bella twins, she humiliated them by saying "Talent is not sexually transmitted", referring to their personal lives where the twins were dating John Cena and Daniel Bryan. Now that's a nasty jab.
Chris Jericho is among the best WWE talkers, and the most brutal of his insults were usually directed towards Stephanie McMahon. Jericho was booked to fight Rhyno from Extreme Championship Wrestling. It was being managed by Stephanie, and on a promo with them, Y2J went brutal, saying, "I'm gonna take care of that smelly, greasy, nasty animal...And I'm gonna get you too Rhyno!".
Tazz and Jim Ross were commentators of the WWE. In a segment, Tazz insulted JR which has been etched in the minds of fans. He said, "I'd love to slap you across your face, but it looks like God already beat me to it". This was a reference to JR's Bell's palsy, which causes paralysis of facial muscles.
McMahon has feuded with his family members on more than one occasion, with his fights with son Shane being the most entertaining. Recently, Vinny Mac claimed he had no son, but his greatest insult to Shane surely was when he said, "I will never, ever forgive your mother for giving birth to you". Doesn't get worse from a father to a son.
