Anything can happen in the world of pro wrestling, and that’s just talking about the scripted action. When you add in the element of live television (or being part of an arena crowd), the potential for something unplanned is even higher. And no matter how careful the WWE (or other promotions) are, sometimes things go wrong in the middle of their shows, for a number of different reasons. It could be an injury that changes the path of an entire storyline, a performer going rogue, or some other unforeseen disaster.
Most of these unscripted moments happened in the WWF/WWE, although we do venture into ECW, WCW, and even TNA briefly. Combined, they form a mighty list of some of the most shocking, tragic, dangerous, or memorable moments in pro wrestling history.
