5 WWE Superstars who paid heavily for saving the day
It doesn't matter if you're a longtime pro wrestling fan, or have started watching recently: there are some things that immediately catch your attention. One of those things is the fact that when a bunch of heels are beating up a good guy, another babyface would run in for the save and it would get a good pop out of the crowd.
These saves are one of the most important storyline elements when it comes to wrestling angles, and are always bound to work and fire up the crowd.
On the other hand, there have been some cases where a babyface has come out to save a fellow wrestler, but things didn't turn out the way he or the fans had expected. In the list below, we will take a look at five WWE Superstars who tried to save the day, but failed in the process and ended up paying heavily for the same.
#5 Kane gets The Mandible Claw
Let's kick off the list with the moment that inspired the whole thing. On this week's Raw, the main event saw Seth Rollins taking on Robert Roode. Rollins won via a DQ after Dolph Ziggler ran in, followed by all three members of The OC. A 5-on-1 attack ensued, but didn't last long as Kane came out to make the save.
Unfortunately for Kane, things didn't work out the way he had wanted, as a familiar music hit, and the arena went dark. Suddenly, The Fiend appeared behind Kane, and put him in the Mandible Claw. The Fiend then set his sights on Rollins, who looked genuinely terrified at the sight of the sinister Superstar. The show ended with a shot of the Firefly Funhouse logo, albeit it was glitching and malfunctioning.
