Funniest WWE Moments 2020

[ad_1]

Escapism at its finest. That’s how WWE can be described in 2020. But it also had plenty of heart…and plenty of laughs.

Even if you’re not a fan, these moments should please anyone who likes a good blooper or well-timed humor:

1.

“Big men…with big muscles…bumping meat.”

It feels like cheating, but this is still WWE content.

In this video, during The New Day: Feel The Power podcast, Big E explains his dream match with Goldberg. Both Big E and Goldberg are larger gentlemen, and not the most acrobatic, which led to the hilarious explanation of Big E trying to sell why this match would be like old school wrestling.

His friends are left in tears and so are viewers. Seriously, watch for yourself.

2.

Bray Wyatt and John Cena give us “Good Sh*t.”

Stepping into Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Funhouse for a match that might have been the gutsiest decision in 2020 sports entertainment. It paid off big with a parody match making fun of John Cena’s career…with none other than John Cena making fun of himself.

The segment was self-aware comedy gold, and even featured a “Devil” Vince McMahon puppet declaring the match was, “Such good sh*t.” (A rumored spoken quote from the Devil’s mouth himself).

Cinematic matches were a blessing during the pandemic and really allowed creativity to run wild.

3.

Seth Rollins looks disheveled on the sidelines.

All eyes were on “The Monday Night Messiah” Seth Rollins when he joined his disciple Murphy in a tag team match after his defeat against Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank. What makes this one of the funniest moments of the year is watching a disheveled Seth sadly standing on the apron the entire match.

What puts this moment head and shoulders above the rest: real-life wife Becky Lynch announced her pregnancy in the same episode making fans question why he was really down: the title loss or the dark cloud of fatherhood?

His sense of humor and ability to not budge an inch was a grand slam, making this an unforgettable moment while also kick-starting a long feud between him and Rey Mysterio.

4.

Seth dies for our sins.

There is only one way for the Messiah to go out: sacrificing himself.

For the Men’s Survivor Series elimination match (Raw vs. Smackdown), Seth Rollins sacrificed himself for “the greater good” and took a brogue kick from Sheamus to be the first man eliminated.

The moment is even more hilarious realizing Seth was rumored at the time to be taking time off to go be a dad, making it a full circle for his heel character. It also led to a straight 5-0 blowout for Team Smackdown…making his sacrifice comedically meaningless.

5.

Montez Ford does a screaming dive out of the ring onto his back. (The Street Profits are up, and down goes Montez!)

Important note: Montez Ford is okay.

That being said, this was the botch of the year. Here’s the play-by-play once you watch the video (starting at 1:25):

Montez looks into the camera and shouts, “Wrestlemania!” He goes on to carry on the scream while running the ropes to set up a dive, but Seth Rollins fails to grab his leg to stop him. So, Montez goes for the dive anyway while opposing manager Zelina Vega shouts “No!” He dives and falls off-screen, so all we hear is a loud CRASH.

The botch is brutal but the way it unfolds is undeniably hilarious. Thankfully, Montez was fine and healthy for Wrestlemania, and he even did a similar diving spot as a tribute.

6.

The world is blessed with “Drew McInfart” thanks to Adam Pearce.

Luckily, Drew McInFart isn’t the kind of nickname people remember forever and ever and ever.


WWE

No words. Okay, some.

Adam Pearce had the huge announcement of a triple threat match to decide the man who would “face Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship.”

Unfortunately (fortunately for fans), his brain autocorrected “McIntyre” and “for the” to gift us the new word: “McInfart.”

7.

The Bay v. Michael Cole is the match we all want to see.


WWE

There are too many moments to smash into one video, but Bayley’s heel persona versus commentator Michael Cole was priceless throughout 2020.

As a heel, Bayley’s jerkish title run carried the women’s division through the pandemic and her constant trolling of Cole added entertainment to all of her segments.

8.

Smackdown becomes a Triple H Takeover.

WWE / youtube.com

This was the first WWE show after the pandemic struck. Meaning the first show with no fans and a limited crew to pull off an episode.

Triple H said “hold my ring entrance bottle of water” and was nice enough to serve as color commentator. He is one of the funniest, dry senses of humor in the business and it made for quality television during a tough week.

He also assisted with camera and make-up duties.

9.

Jeff Hardy has a concerning amount of urine in a cup.

WWE / youtube.com

Say what you want about Vince McMahon, but if he produces a dud segment, he goes all out in the worst (best) way.

Not going into it too much (accept wrestling as fictional story-telling and it is way easier to swallow), Jeff Hardy needed to take a urine test in front of the world before his match against Sheamus. Nothing about this segment is really funny, but I hope the creative team thought it would be a good gag to have his urine sample filled at a comedic volume.

Because, my Lord, Jeff really had to pee and did so in record timing.

10.

AJ Styles vs. a permanent marker ends exactly how you would think.

WWE / youtube.com

AJ Styles as a heel is something else to witness.

When he held the Intercontinental Championship, he wanted to remind everyone (with his whiteboard) that he is the only worthy contender. That didn’t stop Jeff Hardy from ruining his gag by writing “J-E-F-F H-A-R-D-Y” on the whiteboard.

This led to AJ backstage trying to emphatically erase Hardy’s name, only to realize it was written in permanent marker. Again, the comedy is all in AJ’s acting.

11.

Rey Mysterio botches his 619 finisher in hilarious fashion.

Run it back!

In the grand finale of the absurd Rey Mysterio-Seth Rollins rivalry saga. Oh, if you missed out: Seth pulled Rey’s eye out, Rey’s family attacked Seth’s disciple Murphy with kendo sticks, Rey’s daughter, Aaliyah, is in love with Murphy, and this rivalry has dragged on for months.

So for the grand finale spot (timestamp: 2:23), Seth positions himself for Rey’s 619 finisher after Murphy turned on him. The big finish ends with Rey awkwardly flying through the ropes and having to reset the whole spot.

It sums up a rivalry that was messy, but also entertaining, and that’s all that matters.

12.

Randy Orton’s photoshopped face gives me nightmares.

@WWE @RandyOrton @AlexaBliss_WWE If only there was a way to get a photo of Randy Orton’s head on Randy Orton’s body without using photoshop


WWE

This was allowed on live TV.

Randy Orton is a 14-time World Champion, so why can’t we use an old photo?

WWE decided to use a graphic with a photoshopped Randy head. Why? No idea. The man hasn’t really aged in the past decade, so the Viper should be insulted by this rushed edit.

13.

Otis thinks Tucker kisses him and isn’t a jerk about it.

One of the more wholesome laughs of the year involves the true Money in the Bank winner Otis.

In a bizarre blindfolded test created by his tag partner Tucker, Otis’ on-camera girlfriend Mandy Rose sneaks in for a quick kiss. Otis is surprised but not alarmed with the potential of his buddy offering a good luck kiss. It was a wholesome moment and reiterated these two as good buds.

Why WWE broke the two tag partners up? Your guess is as good as mine.

14.

Brawl in the Boss’s office at Money in the Bank.

WWE / youtube.com

Money in the Bank had everything.

Elevator gags…weight room mayhem…men being thrown off rooftops. The funniest moment had to be AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan accidentally fighting in Chairman Vince McMahon’s office.

The awkward interaction speaks for itself.

15.

The Universal Title has some very unceremonious velcro.

WWE / youtube.com

An intense exchange between the company’s World Champions Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns ends so accidentally hilarious, the WWE edited it out on YouTube.

After the Scottish Warrior and the Island Dog of the Table (Roman has too many nicknames. Pick one, man) sign a contract for Survivor Series, Roman’s manager Paul Heyman gives Roman’s belt back to him. Unfortunately, the velcro of the belt was picked up by the microphone.

It was like letting one rip at the family table and was hard to take two men, trying to act macho, seriously. Take a look at the full video (timestamp: 6:30).

16.

A brief moment of silence for Friendship Frog.

WWE / youtube.com

Every Bray Wyatt segment is quite the acid trip.

Enter the Firefly Funhouse (Blue’s Clues for monsters), and meet Friendship Frog. It was the delightful frog’s first and last appearance alive on the show and his tribute at the end of the segment is priceless.

17.

Everything and anything R-Truth is enjoyable.

Before you go, check out WWE’s funniest individual: R-Truth.

The man gets the wackiness of wrestling comedy and never fails to entertain.

Honorable Mention: Surprise Dead Man.


WWE

The Undertaker. AJ Styles. Boneyard Match.

Where can you go wrong?

Just when the “Phenomenal One” AJ Styles thinks he buried Undertaker, the Dead Man appears behind him (along with a miraculous floodlight).

Which moments made you laugh? If I snubbed anything, leave a comment and try not to botch your move off the top rope.

2020 is finally (almost) over, and we’re looking back on the year. Check out even more from the year here!
