Name one legit LIE that WWE tried to sell

And let's not include kayfabe stuff. Only statements that anyone in WWF/WWE really tried to shove down our throats.

I'm mentioning the "John Cena deserves to be where he is because he sells out arenas all around the globe".

And that was a total bullshit. John never sold out any event, he was charismatic at one point that's true, especially with the dr thuganomics gimmick, but during his super cena run he was a fucking nuisance more than anything. Claiming the above is saying that he carried the company on his back when he never did. It's like saying a WWE event on Madison Square garden would only sell out if Cena was on the card.
Nah... nope....

And so... which ones can you guys name?

1. Ric Flair is the greatest wrestler of all time

2. Shawn Michaels is the greatest in-ring performer of all time

Thanks to HHH overhyping his favourite wrestler and his close friend

That Moolah was the longest reining women's champion of all time. Whilst yes she held it a ridiculous amount of time, it wasn't recognized as the WWF Women's title at the time, and if they are recognizing the lineage before that then Moolah wasn't the first and she lost it a few times throughout her reign (all women she handpicked). She flat out refused to lose to anyone that wasn't train by herself. Thankfully Vince Jr. Soon put a stop to it.

Also considered Kayfabe. Vince stripped Moolah of the title when she left WWF, multiple times. Vince never replaced her as champion, so most of her fake reign, there was no women's champion.

If it doesn't make money, it doesn't make sense.

Re: Name one legit LIE that WWE tried to sell

undertaker is the "greatest pure striker in wwe"......what does that even mean?

I'll also say off the back of that, "the streak is the greatest streak in sports".......how can it be? it can't be the greatest streak in sports when you planned it to happen.

have they said that? its pretty clear that it wasnt really an accident, wwe used some cheaper guy who had no real experience (think he worked as some kind of assistant but never did it himself) and used attaching clips that were not designed to hold the weight of a human being. WWE were at fault for not hiring someone proven and the operator was at fault for carrying out dangerous stunts that he clearly wasnt qualified to be doing.
Cowabunga, TommyWCECM, Ace and 2 others like this.

"After it all you'll find out, you were always one us"


You can't give me a reason, I don't need one to shine, You can't give me a feeling 'cause it's already mine

1. Oasis 2. Queen 3. Angels and Airwaves 4. The cure 5. The Verve

A better question would be to name one legit TRUTH.
