WWE Royal Rumble 2017: 5 Botches, slip ups, and outrageous moments

Why would WWE put Roman in the final Rumble spot? And which wrestler was Cesaro unable to swing?

The PPV gave fans a lot to be happy about

WWE’s Royal Rumble 2017 is now in the history books and it offered plenty to make any wrestling fan happy. Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens beat the tar out of each other under No DQ rules, there was plenty of solid women’s action, and Cena vs. Styles might’ve put on the best match of the year.

Plus, there was the always intriguing 30-man Rumble match. With all of that wrestling goodness, who could find fault? Well...

Like usual, WWE will always find a way for a mistake or two to make its way onto the broadcast and it’s my job to find these moments. I document them in the convenient medium of the .gif, ready to be seen endlessly by the masses.

Royal Rumble had its fair share of these moments, including a bloody mouth from the Raw Women’s Champion, a goofy amount of makeup from The Deadman and a certain member of New Day, who weighs slightly more than the limits of Cesaro’s swing.

All of these botches and outrageous moments from one of the biggest wrestling shows of the year lie ahead, so read on to witness them all...

#5 All of Undertaker’s makeup

I’ll accept if I’m alone on this one but The Undertaker looks awful when he tries to cover up how old he is. It’s not that he’s super old, but with the pencil thin black eyeliner, the hair-do that looks like a wig, and the dyed goatee, he just looks like your dad’s older brother who still wants to hang out with you and your college friends, rather than a man who can fight alongside Brock Lesnar.
