Promos are the backbone to any feud, rivalry or wrestler's character. The way to win fans over and have them believe in your character is to cut a good promos. If you think of the greatest wrestlers and their feuds, most fans remember the promos more than the actual matches. However, promos don’t often go as smoothly as planned and many times blunders, mistakes, or just overall stupidity make their way into a promo. Many wrestlers on this list are considered bad promo cutters and have a compilation of bad promos that I had the honor of picking the worst ones from (not an easy task but someone’s got to do it). Even Hall of Famers and historically good promo cutters found their way onto the list. Mistakes do happen, and fortunately for us we get to see it live.
Nowadays, less promos are botched as wrestlers closely follow scripts rather than improvise their character like it was done in the past. This is unfortunate because fans don't get to experience a genuine portrayal of a character.
This list consist of various wrestling promotions from wrestling giant WWE to independent circuits. It shows that no matter the quality of the promotion, wrestlers always find a way to mess up promos. Furthermore, in some cases it wasn't the wrestler to be blamed but the promotion who spearheaded a terrible idea, leaving the performer out to dry while fans get to laugh at their misfortunes.

Nothing will ever top this promo. The whole idea of the Shockmaster was really bad to begin with and this seemed to destined to fail from the start. For those of you who don’t already know about this promo, Shockmaster was making his debut after weeks of hype and WCW decided to make it a memorable one. Shockmaster was supposed to break through a wall and reveal himself as a powerful competitor. Instead, he broke through the wall and fell on his face. What made this even more memorable was that his helmet fell of his head and he had to pick himself up, put on the helmet, and cut a promo. To top it all off, his promo was barely coherent and his voice was ridiculous. Who knows, maybe one day a promo will be worse than this one, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
