WrestleMania is known as the Showcase of Immortals. There is no stage bigger in Sports Entertainment than WWE’s WrestleMania. Every wrestler’s dream is to have a WrestleMania moment, whether they achieve it by winning a big match, or by giving everything they have (like Mick Foley).
Accidents, botches & injuries are very common in Pro-Wrestling, and these accidents can be worse if there’s a lot of pressure on the athletes and employees. Let’s take a look at these 10 accidents, botches & injuries from WrestleMania.
10. Brock Lesnar Almost Dies – WrestleMania 19
In the main event of WrestleMania 19, Brock Lesnar wrestled then WWE Champion Kurt Angle in a match that was simply amazing, except for one thing – Brock’s botched Shooting Star Press. Towards the end of the match Brock Lesnar was supposed to do a Shooting Star Press on Kurt Angle and while performing the move, Lesnar misjudged the distance and instead of landing on Kurt Angle, he landed on his neck.
In an interview, Kurt Angle said that move was the finish of the match, but Brock finished himself. Angle says he tried to talk with Lesnar, but Lesnar wasn’t responding and Angle thought that he was paralyzed. Angle says that was supposed to be the greatest moment in WrestleMania history, but they obviously failed in making that true.
Lesnar still got up and performed an F5 on Angle to finish the match and become the new WWE Champion. Angle was surprised that he got up after that.
