What's the dumbest excuse a wrestler came up with to justify his or her actions?
The most recent one has to be Taz, saying he joined Aces and 8s because: "how could I pass up the opportunity to live by the vision of a higher power?!"
Well if that's what you want isn't that what religion and cults are for? No you have to betray your best fried because someone who claims to be a "higher power" offered you the opportunity to follow him? What dumb ass logic is this? I know we should suspend out belief but this is just absurd.
What are your most absurd illogical excuses heard in pro wrestling?
Am I the only one that liked Rikishi being revealed as the driver that hit Austin? Granted they ruined it, but the initial reveal and the few weeks that followed were pretty solid to me.
He said he did it for The Rock AND his people. It was a racism storyline and he rationalized what he did by saying Rock wouldn't be as big as Austin if Austin was in the picture and he wanted one of his own to be the top guy, something that he feels was not allowed and prevented by wrestling promoters in the past.
Anyways, some that come to mind:
- Batista attacking Rey Mysterio because Rey didn't throw a match for him. Why would he expect Rey to let him win? What is he a three year old? Actually, I think the reasoning of Batista being jealous of Cena being treated like the top guy over him despite them becoming stars at the same time and Batista defeating him in 08 and the Royal Rumble were much more compelling reasons for a heel turn.
- Undertaker in 2001 = NOBODY RESPECTS ME!!! Uh...what? Pretty sure Taker was even at that point over a decade ago, one of the most respected guys in the biz among both wrestlers & fans. I am not sure what Taker was talking about really.
