Live television can be unpredictable at times, and that has been proven true during some instances that have aired on World Wrestling Entertainment television. Some of the live WWE TV fails, which are commonly referred to as “botches” among those in the wrestling community, were humorous moments that did little to no harm. The Miz forgetting an important line during a competition made for an uncomfortable moment for the superstar. Lilian Garcia literally tripping on her way to the ring was probably embarrassing for her. Neither of those occurrences were, however, significant negatives on that WWE TV show.
Other moments, however, live on in the memories of WWE fans for years to come. “The show must go on” claims the famous saying, and that was the case during multiple WWE events that were impacted by power outages. It turns out that an event in the dark is, in the eyes of some, better than no show at all. A different live WWE TV “fail” involved Mankind and the Undertaker battling it out in a Hell in a Cell match that has lived on for years, largely because of one moment that supposedly was not planned. That one crash helped turn Mankind from a midcard performer to a wrestler who was worthy of winning the World Wrestling Federation Championship.

Pro wrestling is, of course, a work, so those of us on the outside looking in may never know exactly what Mankind and Undertaker had planned when they climbed to the top of the structure during their famous “Hell in a Cell” match. Mick Foley, playing the Mankind character, probably did not envision himself taking a bump through the cage ceiling and to the ring while at the same time having his mouth smashed by a falling chair. This painful live WWE TV fail has been replayed on shows time and time again, and it cemented Mankind's status as a legend among fans.
