Top 10 Funniest WWE Moments Ever
Wrestling history is packed full of funny moments, but nowhere more so than WWE. Raw, SmackDown, pay-per-views and all the events in between have had their fair share of hilarious skits – some intentional, and some less so – in between the grappling action.
Take a trip down memory lane with us as we look back over the top 10 funniest WWE moments ever.
10. Edge, Christian & A Kazoo
"You think you know me?" Back in the year 2000, WWE's tag team scene was red hot, with the Dudley Boyz, Hardy Boyz, and Edge and Christian putting on classic matches. Ask any Attitude Era wrestling fan, and they're sure to remember the TLC (and other object-based bouts) involving the trio.
On-screen brothers and real-life best friends Edge and Christian liked nothing more than goofing off backstage. One of their best skits involved the seven-time tag team champions playing their entrance music using a kazoo. Party pooper Triple H didn't want to play the game, even when they serenaded him with his then-theme, "My Time".
9. Kane Teams With The Rock And Hulk Hogan
One of the awesome things about Kane in the early years before his unmasking was that you very rarely heard him speak. He had manager Paul Bearer as a mouthpiece during his debut feud with on-screen brother, The Undertaker.
"The Big Red Machine" teamed up with The Rock and Hulk Hogan to take on the nWo threesome of Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and X-Pac on the final SmackDown following the 2002 WWE Brand Extension. As The Great One and the Hulkster psyched themselves up for the six-man tag match, Kane joined them in the locker room and stole their catchphrases.
8. Mr Socko vs. The Cobra
WWE love having a comic relief act. Santino Marella relished that role during his run with the company between 2007 and 2016, and really got over with fans. The 2012 Royal Rumble match saw the master of The Cobra encounter hardcore legend Mick Foley.
Years earlier, in order to help reinvent his Mankind gimmick, Foley kicked up his Mandible Claw submission hold a notch. He invented Mr Socko! Literally a sock with a face on it he kept in his tights, Socko found his way down many a superstar's gullet. Watch Socko and The Cobra collide.
7. The Coach Does The Charleston
Backstage segments with The Rock were always a high point of Raw or SmackDown. The People's Champion just had the best chemistry with Jonathan Coachman when The Coach interviewed him.
From singing Barry Manilow to Bessy the cow and dancing the Charleston on Rocky's orders, we just had to pick one of those moments out for our list. Dance Coach, dance!
6. Money In The Bank Briefcase Prank
When The Shield dismantled with Seth Rollins turning on his fellow Hounds of Justice in the summer of 2014, WWE was served with storylines for years to come. A heel Rollins quickly became Mr Money In The Bank.
Former Shield brother Dean Ambrose gained revenge on The Architect when he stole the briefcase. The Lunatic Fringe returned it to Rollins on a September episode of Raw, but the segment rather blew up in his face.
5. Losing The People's Sunglasses
Even The Most Electrifying Man in Sports and Entertainment can't defy the laws of gravity. The Rock and Mankind formed one of the greatest odd couple tag teams ever seen in the squared circle.
At the height of their popularity, The Rock 'n' Sock Connection won the tag titles three times in 1999. While Rocky was telling us to smell what he was cookin' on a SmackDown episode in the fall, his sunglasses slipped off his head and down to the canvas. A masked Foley picked them up. Hilarious.
4. Jimmy Crack Corn... I Won Olympic Gold
Kurt Angle could have appeared on this list several times. The Olympic Hero was happy to be the butt of jokes during his first run with WWE, even going so far as to wear a wig after losing a hair versus hair match with Edge.
Angle was at his goofiest during the summer of 2001 and the early days of The Invasion angle. A heel "Stone Cold" Steve Austin had turned on fans and allied with Mr McMahon at WrestleMania X-Seven. They took it in turns to sing campfire songs backstage to the boss. Kurt chose Jimmy Crack Corn and the rest is history.
3. Titus O'Neil, Epic Fail
Look, there's just something damn funny about people falling over. Whole blooper highlight reels are full of tumbles like the one Titus O'Neil took at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia.
Titus "Worldwide" became a globally shared meme when he tripped and slid under the ring entering the match at number 39. More millions of laughs than millions of dollars.
2. Stone Cold Visits Vince In Hospital
WWE turned the tide in the famous Monday Night Wars for TV ratings with WCW. It allowed a whole generation of fans to live vicariously through sports entertainment.
None of us in real life would dare to cross the boss. It's more than our jobs are worth. Austin raised hell and even took it into the emergency room. Stone Cold disguised himself as a doctor and opened a can of whoop ass on Vinnie Mac, crashing him over the head with a bedpan. And that's the bottom line!
1. DX Take Over Raw Production Truck
Are you ready? D-Generation X were easily the most controversial faction in WWE history. From invading WCW with a tank to their infamous Nation of Domination parody, their edgy material made for tons of memorable moments.
DX never totally took over WWE's flagship TV show until 2006, when Shawn Michaels and Triple H reformed as a tag team. It was natural that The Heartbreak Kid and The Cerebral Assassin would feud with authority figure Mr McMahon.
The WWE chairman lost complete control of Raw one Monday night when banning HBK and HHH from the building, but they got into the production truck outside. Cue altering McMahon's microphone, dubbed flatulence and drawing... cockerels... on the screen.
This feud between DX and Vince was full of hilarious stuff like this, but the entire segment is pure comedy gold. Watch out for Vince's infamous Slammies 1987 musical performance. You had better, stand back!
