A Phenomenal save!
A Phenomenal save!Contrary to popular belief, professional wrestling is indeed a dangerous ‘sport’. The margin for error is very little once you lace up your boots, and the performers know that they could get seriously injured on any given day.

A lot of focus is given to training the body to properly take ‘bumps’, and more importantly, to trust their opponent (s). Professional wrestling is the one industry where you trust your partner with your life; a simple miscalculation can end in catastrophe, and unfortunately, it isn’t as uncommon as you’d expect.

Saying that the WWE Superstars are, after all, human. Mistakes are a part of our growth and evolution, and as such, the safest of workers in the business aren’t exempted from making mistakes from time to time.

However, there is a fine line between laughing it off, and staring up at the bright lights, unable to process the sequence of events taking place.

We take a look at 10 botches in WWE, that could have cost a Superstar his or her career.


#10 Lita overshoots while going for a suicide dive


Lita and Trish Stratus revolutionized women’s wrestling in WWE, long before the likes of Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch came along.

The two women redefined the roles of women in the company and soon found themselves being rewarded for their efforts. Lita, in particular, was known for her devil - may - care attitude in the ring, and became a fan favorite for her swashbuckling style of wrestling.

Trish and Lita were involved in arguably the greatest women’s rivalry in WWE history. During one particular episode of RAW in ’04, both women were given the honors of closing the episode, as they battled for the WWE Women’s Championship.

During the course of the bout, Lita went for a suicide dive, but overshot, resulting in Lita over rotating in mid-air and landing on her neck!

The ‘Punk Princess’ somehow escaped a career-ending injury and went on to win the title.
