WWE proudly boasts several hours of live weekly television, and far be it from us to deny them the impressiveness of that feat. We’ve complained about some of the stuff WWE has aired on their programming, but there’s no question it takes a serious effort to produce anything live, let alone hours of potentially dangerous entertainment. Whether the product is good or bad, airing it live creates dozens of potentially show stopping problems that WWE has masterfully avoided for several decades. Usually.
On a few occasions, WWE’s dedication to being the most cutting edge live form of sports entertainment has worked to their detriment. In entertainment, airing a show live means there’s no second takes, which means every mistake, technical difficulty, forgotten line, miscued performer, and whatever other unexpected problem arises will be broadcast for the entire world to see. These moments all happen in WWE, but the nature of live television also luckily means that they can immediately move on and focus about the next segment, hoping that fans forget the mistake. Such is our duty to point out those mistakes anyway, so keep reading if you want to learn about 15 moments from the WWE Blooper Reel that Vince McMahon wants you to forget.

1 Sid Forgets The Show Is Live
Sid Vicious was one of the most intense superstars in WWE history, but more than a few stories about him have presented him as a bit of a goofball when the cameras turn off. Sid’s aloof personality became part of WWE history during a pre-show interview from one of the first In Your House Pay-Per-Views. Jim Ross asks Sid how he’s going to fare challenging Diesel for the WWE World Championship; Sid mumbles a response, and almost immediately asks if they can start over. JR doesn’t miss a beat in telling Sid, “We’re live, pal.” Sid’s microphone mishaps aren’t relegated exclusively to WWE, as in WCW he once threatened The Outsiders by telling them he had “half the brains” they did.
