Slapstick Saturday presents: Bottleground!


For this week's edition of Slapstick Saturday, we're going to pay tribute to Battleground, which airs this Sunday on WWE Network, by featuring a different screw-up from one of the performers from each match.

So without further ado...

John Cena (c) vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns:

So many to chose from here, including Roman Reigns self-administered atomic drop, but in the end, you just can't beat John Cena's projectile spitting.


Alberto Del Rio vs. Big E vs. Bo Dallas vs. Cesaro vs. Curtis Axel vs. Diego vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Fandango vs. Heath Slater vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Rob Van Dam vs. R-Truth vs. Ryback vs. Sheamus vs. Sin Cara vs. The Great Khali vs. The Miz vs. Titus O'Neil vs. Xavier Woods vs. Zack Ryder:

This isn't a botch, blooper, or even a bomb, but I had to include this gem from Cesaro, because it was from Battleground, so it's a little rub for this weekend's big shebang.


Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho:

CM Punk was the one who was supposed to be the alcoholic in this bizarre (and often unsettling) program, but it was Chris Jericho who ended up stumbling around like a drunk.


Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins:

Even someone as nimble and fluid as "The Architect," Seth Rollins, has been known to slip up, thanks to a barricade which refuses to sell his "Shield" entrance on RAW.

Take that, traitor!

AJ Lee (c) vs. Paige:

Sometimes we forget just how awful a Divas match can be, even one starring AJ Lee. This one in particular ended with someone getting fired (and it wasn't Big E. or Natalya).

Beautiful women. Ugly finish.

The Usos (c) vs. The Wyatt Family (Erick Rowan and Luke Harper):

Poor Jey Uso. Not only does he lose a dance competition to The Great KhaLOLi, he also gets pinned, despite the fact that he's not in a wrestling match.

And he gets his head bounced off the mat for good measure.

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev:

Proof that not every Jack Swagger botch ends with his opponent going to the hospital. Though some of the blame has to fall on the referee, as well, who called for bell despite the fact that the "Real American" kicked out at two.

I'm sure he was going to lose anyway.

Naomi vs. Cameron:

Did you know that Melina vs. Alicia Fox was the greatest match in the history of WWE? Well, at least according to Cameron it was, back when she was a contestant on Tough Enough.

Girl, bye.
