WWE/WCW History: 10 worst promos of all time
Pro-wrestling is a sport where the wrestlers don't just need to have in-ring skills to be able to work out a decent enough match, they also need to have the gift of gab.
There have been multiple cases in the past where the wrestler's inability to talk on the mic cost them their career. Wrestling is a soap opera with never-ending storylines, and without mic skills, a wrestler is doomed from the very beginning.
WWE Superstars like Hulk Hogan had exceptional speaking skills, and that helped him become the greatest superstar in wrestling history without having impressive in-ring skills. Not everyone is Hogan though, let's take a look at 10 of the most embarrassing promos of all time in WWE/WCW history.
#10 Kalisto's "good Lucha things"
The masked Lucha Libre superstar was never known for his mic skills in the WWE, but Kalisto went all the way in an interview during the WWE Draft of 2016, and botched a promo BIG TIME!
He went on to misspell Baron Corbin's name and fumbled multiple times on the mic. The icing on the cake was during the very final moments of the interview when he completely forgot his lines and said something along the lines of,
"I'm here... to make... ah... a good Lucha thing!"
Kalisto left the interview area immediately after the promo, knowing that he had messed up. He later came back to the same position to redeem himself. See for yourself.
#9 Bobby Lashley's "I love you"
When Bobby Lashley came back to WWE in 2018, he seemed to be destined for a mega push. Fans were clamoring for a big-time match pitting Lashley against The Beast, Brock Lesnar.
WWE had other things in mind though. A backstage sitdown interview was held where Lashley talked in detail about his family, especially his sisters.
At the end of the promo, the camera zoomed towards Lashley, as he said "I love you" to his sisters, in one of the creepiest visuals of 2018. Thankfully, the babyface run was scrapped immediately and Bobby was turned heel, to rid us of the memory of this utterly creepy promo.
