WWE is a bizarre place at the very best of instances, however 2020 was a 12 months that compelled them to suppose outdoors the field much more so than ordinary.
Under, talkSPORT appears at 5 of the craziest issues WWE has placed on TV this 12 months. In the event you wanted reminding that wrestling isn’t actual, right here you go!
Rey Mysterio’s eye popped out
The legendary luchador was embroiled in a feud with Seth Rollins for the overwhelming majority of the 12 months and the crux of this rivalry noticed Rollins, the Monday Evening Messiah at that time, try to take Mysterio’s eye.
This led to an ‘eye-for-an-eye’ match at Excessive Guidelines this 12 months and when Rollins dug Mysterio’s eyes into the metal steps – on the climax of a improbable wrestling match – Mysterio’s eye appeared to come out.
WWE appeared to offer Mysterio a faux eye to carry on this occasion and with slightly little bit of blood sprinkled on, it was barely satisfactory.
Bray Wyatt burned alive
Tables, Ladders and Chairs was WWE’s remaining pay-per-view of the 12 months in 2020 and so they determined to exit with a bang. Or a flame.
Lots of you’ll recall Randy Orton set hearth to Bray Wyatt’s home again in 2017 as their feud ramped up on the way in which to WrestleMania 33. Hallmarks of that story have been revisited this week as Orton tried to set The Fiend on hearth inside a field on RAW.
This led to a Firefly Funhouse Inferno match at TLC and The Fiend would lose that battle. He even took an RKO whereas on hearth! However, that wasn’t sufficient and Orton needed to go and douse gasoline throughout The Fiend earlier than setting him ablaze and burning him to a crisp. Primarily, it was homicide!
Rey Mysterio and Aleister Black thrown from the roof of WWE HQ
Imagine it or not, Mysterio’s luck wasn’t a lot better when he had two working eyes. The Cash within the Financial institution ladder match was one of many first cinematic matches WWE tried outdoors of WrestleMainia and it obtained combined opinions in comparison with the fantastic Boneyard match, particularly.
Because the match obtained all the way down to the ultimate climax – which occurred on the roof of Titan Towers – Rey Mysterio and Aleister Black have been flung from the skyscraper because of Baron Corbin.
Whereas we have been left to think about that they had plummeted to their deaths, it was revealed on the next episodes of RAW that that they had landed on a decrease roof and the drop was maybe 10 toes, not 70. All was properly.
Braun Strowman drowned
After Braun Strowman gained the Common title from Goldberg at WrestleMania 36, he had a quick feud with John Morrison and The Miz earlier than transferring on to previous pal, Bray Wyatt.
Strowman would defeat Wyatt first off, then he would tackle the previous model of Wyatt – the cult chief – at Excessive Guidelines.
To get to the ultimate battle with The Fiend, Strowman needed to carry that out of Wyatt and it appears as if battling in American swamps will do exactly that! After Strowman thought he had drowned Wyatt, The Fiend emerged and dragged the champion beneath. The Fiend would emerge from the water alone to finish the present suggesting Strowman was performed for.
Road Income & Viking Raiders cinematic match that includes a rubbish monster
We’ve stated rubbish monster within the title as a result of we actually don’t know the way to describe it.
After keeping off ninjas and breaking by means of glass panels throughout their tag group battle that adopted weeks of head-to-head battles in numerous sports activities, the duos ended up in a garbage skip.
Surrounded by black bin baggage, hastily tentacles from an unknown monster started to emerge inflicting each groups to flee for his or her very lives! Lord is aware of what that creature was and it has by no means been revisited, and even defined why, but it surely completely occurred. On nearer inspection, it looks like it may need been an alligator, however why it was within the trash continues to be a thriller.
Now don’t you inform us wrestling isn’t actual!
