8 times Superstars' entrances were botched
Because sometimes the biggest mistakes in pro wrestling happen before a wrestler even gets into the ring....
A wrestler’s entrance is one of the most important parts of their overall presentation. From the music that’s played to the way they walk down to the ring, all of these subtleties play a big role in selling a wrestler to the audience watching. Thus, a wrestler’s entrance needs to be as flawless as every other aspect of their persona.
But as with other parts of life, things don’t always go as planned during a wrestler’s entrance. In some cases, a wrestler’s entrance gets screwed up completely, which causes irreparable damage to their image.
The following eight situations are ones in which a wrestler’s entrance was botched. In each case, the wrestler either managed to save face by ignoring the situation or brushing it off, or in other cases, suffered extensively as a result of these mistakes being too great to ignore.
#8 Ultimo Dragon’s entrance at WrestleMania XX
Ultimo Dragon had two dreams when he signed with WWE: to perform at WrestleMania and in Madison Square Garden. At WrestleMania XX, both of those dreams came true, but those dreams came with a price.
Ultimo was part of the Cruiserweight Open for the Cruiserweight Championship, and was the first man to enter the arena for this match. However, as he passed through the curtain, he slipped on the entrance way, before resuming his entrance as normal.
Although the actual slip-up lasted no more than a second, that became one of the most memorable parts of Ultimo’s short WWE career.
