5 times wrestlers destroyed each other's possessions on air
Wrestlers destroying each other’s possessions is as old as distraction roll-ups. From Triple H hammering Undertaker’s bike to Stone Cold’s rampages, WWE has over the years used the destroying of possessions as a means to take feuds to a new level. It’s a great way for wresters to heat up feuds and make them important in the eyes of fans.
Wrestlers destroying possessions are a great way for wrestlers to get their intensity and character over to fans. They act as a deviance from the usual promos and make the moment more meaningful.
Over the years destroying of property has created many memorable moments in WWE. Here are 5 times wrestlers destroyed each other’s possessions on air.
5: Chris Jericho destroys Francesca
Francesca the trombone, made her first appearance on the Raw after SummerSlam. Over the next few weeks Francesca became an entertaining part of New Day’s act, with Xavier Woods’ playing the trombone from ringside during their matches including New Day’s trademark Unicorn Stampede.
Francesca clearly became beloved to The New Day and their fans as time went on, but things came to a head on the Jan 11, 2016 episode of Monday Night Raw when an irate Chris Jericho destroyed Francesca in half in front of a horrified Xavier Woods.
WWE officials backstage couldn’t put Francesca back together again which led to Xavier Woods calling out Chris Jericho out on social media, and also led to New Day giving Francesca a much deserved funeral.
