    Throughout the history of professional wrestling, there have been many awkward moments that just make you wonder how they even happened in the first place.

    In this piece, I count down my version of the top 10 most awkward moments in wrestling history.

    From strange interviews to botched entrances, and everything in between, this list has it all.


Honorable Mention

10. And Your New WWE Women's Champion: Batista!

2 of 11

    Michael Cole made the mistake that no wrestling announcer wants to make in this clip.

    He called Batista the Women's Champion after a win, something that he would like to take back still to this day.

9. Triple H Doesn't Like the RKO

3 of 11

    In one of the most awkward moments of Triple H's career, he fell too early, preventing Randy Orton from doing an RKO.

    Orton was in a state of shock after he was about to put the finishing move to defeat Triple H in this matchup.

8. No Pyro for Kane

4 of 11

    In one of the scariest entrances in wrestling history, Kane always has pyrotechnics go off after he swings his arms upon entering the ring.

    However, this time, it didn't work out for him.

7. Jeff Hardy Goes into His Own World

5 of 11

    High-flying former WWE and current TNA superstar Jeff Hardy had a moment after he, RVD and Eric Young won a match in 2010.

    As Young raised the arms of both superstars, Hardy zoned out for a few seconds before he finally realized where he was.

6. Grand Master Sexay Returns

6 of 11

    When former WWE star Grand Master Sexay made his return to pro wrestling earlier this year, hardly anyone reacted.

    In arguably the least enthusiastic return of all time, Grand Master took it to a whole new level of awkwardness.

5. Batista and Edge Bang Heads

7 of 11

    In a rare eight-man tag match, Batista and Edge decided to put their heads together while in the ring.

    The pair ran into one another, butting heads, which left both of them on the mat with fans shaking their own heads in wonder.

4. Vickie Guerrero Is Speechless, Literally

8 of 11

    Eddie Guerrero's widow, WWE personality Vickie Guerrero, was supposed to talk about her relationship with Edge, but was only able to get out two sentences instead.

    After saying her quick comments, Guerrero then stared into the screen, looking like a deer in headlights for the remainder of the promo.

3. "The Snake" Is Drunk

9 of 11

    Former wrestling star Jake "The Snake" Roberts had a tendency to drink from time to time, including in old wrestling promos as well.

    Watch as Roberts make a fool of himself in front of the camera in this very awkward interview.

2. Booker T Drops the "N" Bomb

10 of 11

    In an old interview with Mean Gene Okerlund, Booker T let a word slip that no one should ever say on the air.

    He immediately realized his mistakes began to cover his face, as if this would do it any justice.

1. Iron Sheik Unleashed

11 of 11

    In this interview with, the Sheik freaked out when talking about a match that he had with the Killer Bees in 1987.

    Along with swearing up and down, he ended up referencing God, Jesus and Mr. McMahon in the same sentence during his rant. Awkward indeed.
