5 most awkward promos in professional wrestling
Promos are one of the most integral parts of professional wrestling. While it's the in-ring action which offers a final resolution to conflicts, it's the mic work which actually builds the story and gets fans invested in what is happening.
This is why some of the most famous wrestlers in the history of the business have been great talkers. Your lack of in-ring skill can be forgiven if you're able to connect with the fans. And, we have seen a lot of great promos over the years.
But, there are instances where things go very very wrong. For whatever reason, the person on the mic completely botches their promo and it leads some of the most cringe-worthy moments in all of professional wrestling.
So, without any further ado, here is our list of the 5 most awkward promos in professional wrestling:
#5) Scott Steiner's math promo
Our first entry on this list comes from TNA courtesy of one Mr Scott Steiner. Now, while Steiner has always been able to connect with the fans with his crass style of talking, he is prone to go off on a tangent and that was clearly evident in the promo above.
In the build-up to his Threeway match against Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Big Poppa Pump decided to mathematically explain why he was going to win.
What followed was an awkward and hilarious couple of minutes of Steiner making no sense while Petey Williams - dressed as a mini-Steiner - nodded along like things were making perfect sense.
