Five unscripted WWE moments that made matches memorableLast updated on Jan 01, 2019, 12:15 am
Well it is not always a bad thing to go off-script, as improvisations can themselves become iconic, take De Niro's "You talkin' to me?" from Taxi Driver, as an example.
And the same is with WWE, as sometimes unscripted moments have also turned out to be the ones which stood out.
Here we bring to you five such instances.
Kurt Angle and Shane McMahon square off
Angle was involved in a 2001 King of The Ring match against Shane McMahon.
This can surely be called one of the most hardcore matches ever.
Three times, Angle suplexed McMahon against a real glass and eventually broke it. Notably, the glass was not even a part of the set.
Both men bled profusely as the match carried on, and was won by Angle.
Mick Foley falls through Hell in A Cell structure
This match has now become one of the most famous moments in the history of WWE.
The Undertaker and Mick Foley were in a Hell in a Cell match, when as planned, Foley fell to the ground from the roof.
And then he went again up, and going off-script, Taker choke-slammed him through the cage's roof.
Randy Savage is bitten by King Cobra
In one of the most shocking instances, cobra of Jake 'The Snake' Roberts, which he always used to carry along with him, created an unscripted horror inside the ring.
The snake was supposed to bite 'Macho Man' Randy Savage for a short while, but Roberts failed to control it and the reptile bloodied the mat with Savage's blood.
Royal Rumble 2005
A botched-up finish at the end of a highly-anticipated match
At Royal Rumble 2005, John Cena and Batista were the last two men standing, and a botched up move made them land outside the ring at the very same moment.
While referees took sides with either Cena or Batista, McMahon came out to settle the matter.
And in another unscripted moment, he legitimately tore his quad while ordering for the match to be restarted.
The Acolytes come down heavy on Public Enemy
It is one of the most brutal legitimate thrashings ever delivered inside a WWE ring.
This occurred when the tag-team Public Enemy refused to be put through tables by Farookh and JBL, or The Acolytes.
The Acolytes decided to legitimately beat them to a pulp, going off-script.
Though quite brutal, it was some great action that we were presented that day.
