There is no doubt that last night's Hell in a Cell's Main Event will go down as one of the absolute WORST endings to a Main Event and match. Below are some of the worst I can recall off the top of my head (NOT IN ANY ORDER). What are some of the worst you can remember??

WRESTLEMANIA 2000 (16):

Triple H retains in the Fatal 4 Way. Rock should have gone over or if you were going to do the big Backlash with Rock, HHH and Austin, Foley should have won and Rock and HHH at Backlash should have been a tournament final!

WRESTLEMANIA 9:

Yokozuna beats Bret and Hogan beats Yoko for the belt in an impromptu challenge! IMO, should have been Hogan or Randy Savage putting over Bret here.

WRESTLEMANIA 25:

Triple H went over Randy Orton...terrible! Say what you want about him now, but from late 2008-mid 2009, Orton was the hottest thing in Wrestling. BUT, after all the involvement of Legacy and The McMahons, they had a snoozer of a Main Event (which I literally snoozed through) and THE WRONG GUY WON!!!

BATTLEGROUND 2013:

Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton....for the vacant WWE title: we must have a winner, BUT, there was no winner as Big Show interfered and destroyed the match. At least when Undertaker vs. Kane fought for the vacant WWF title, we got the infamous Stone Cold kidnaps Vince angle the next night on RAW where Vince famously pissed his pants as Austin shot him with a toy gun. The YES Movement was in full swing, but people wanted a winner here!

STARRCADE 1997:

Right guy won...BUT, there was no fast count, so, why did the match need to be restarted again??? They had an out that they could have used as Hogan grabbed the tights, but they were too incompetent to pivot. Also, how could Bret name himself a referee????

SUMMERSLAM 2015:

Undertaker taps out, bell rings, but ref does not see it and chokes Brock out for the win. Undertaker was legit enough to get a win here so why do the screwy finish???

SURVIVOR SERIES 1997:

The infamous Montreal Screwjob! Nothing more to say that hasn't been said or written over the last 22 years!

For me it has to be 2000 wrestlemania. The rock was the biggest star in wrestling and the fans were ready to see rock get his mania moment only for Vince to screw him over. I have never been more pissed off as a wrestling fan more than that day.

Re: WORST MAIN EVENT ENDINGS

Some great(horrific) choices there. Most significantly worse than we saw at HIAC last night.

I have to add Wrestlemania VIII. Hogan beats Sid by DQ. It ends Wrestlemania in a shitty DQ. It's not the title match. Flair and Savage have a great match for the belt in the middle of the show. If not for massive egos getting in the way this could have been the biggest match of all-time: Hogan vs. Flair for the WWF Championship at Wrestlemania.

Not removing until (X ) Ric Flair shows up on TV stone sober.(It looks like he did it. Good for you Naitch

If anyone is interested in purchasing ultra rare footage of Pat Patterson winning the first Intercontinental Championship in Rio de Janeiro just send me your PayPal username and password and I'll take care of the rest.

I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life....Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe - Abigail Adams

Starrcade 1999 was shit. At the end of Bret / Goldberg, Piper came strolling out, nonchalantly called for the bell and wandered off like he didn’t even want to be there. It was fucking awful.

Re: WORST MAIN EVENT ENDINGS

I’d add Cena not putting over the Wyatt Family at WrestleMania as well. That was pretty much the end of them.

Also Reigns winning the Rumble when he came out at 30 after losing in a championship match the same night was fucking atrocious.

Patiently waiting for the Attitude Era to return

1) Wyatt vs. Cena was not a Main Event...it was in the midcard at Wrestlemania 30.

2) Reigns did not win that Royal Rumble...Randy Orton did.

Re: WORST MAIN EVENT ENDINGS

Royal Rumble 2015: Match was booked terribly, I'd say the beginning of the 3-4 year WWE Vs The fans on Roman Reigns, lackluster ending and they even managed to get The Rock booed by association. The match was also a dud on a pure match scale.

Backlash 2018: To be fair everything but the opening match was a dud, but the Roman/Joe main event went down in infamy as crowds chanted 'beat the traffic' and 'change the channel' match was boring and the cherry on top of the shit cake that was almost the entire show.

Re: WORST MAIN EVENT ENDINGS

There was a PPV main between Orton and Bryan in about 2013 that ended with Big Show coming out and laying out both guys. I'd say that is still #1.
