The Monday Night Wars are what revolutionized wrestling forever, as both WWE and WCW tried to put in the most engrossing material week in, week out in order to reap the 90s wrestling fans’ attention onto their product. Vince McMahon and Eric Bischoff both did some very wild things during this war, going with a no-holds barred approach and showing some raunchy storylines which were solely made to grasp the viewer’s attention. The “Attitude Era” is what sparked the madness inside Vince McMahon, who cared less about the “values” of his product and more about the attractiveness it had.
Vince tried a lot of angles at this point, and although his main event storylines were top notch -some of which eventually won the Monday Night Wars for him- the storylines in the mid-card or lower levels of his roster oozed with desperation all over them. That has seemed to follow for Vince over the years, as the booking for the middle of his shows seem to be cringe-worthy at times and have resulted in some very disgusting moments. Vince’s obsession with cheap thrills and very slapstick humor with sexual innuendoes have made for some moments where the viewer literally wants to stop watching the product.
Be it making the Divas looking like sexual symbols to shocking ‘’pranks’’ to showcasing miscarriages or even indicating assault at times, WWE has done it all when it comes to showcasing some gruesome stuff over the years. The thing which is bewildering is that Vince McMahon even allowed moments like these to occur with his own character being involved in some of them and considering that this is a show for all ages, some of his “humored pranks” crossed the limit of decency many times and just are too obscene for people of any age to watch through.

14 Snitsky Punts Lita’s Baby
Snitsky was built as one of the meanest SOBs in the WWE during his stint at the company, an extremely intimidating monster heel designed to destroy the faces. He soon became a heat magnet, but it all started with his feud with Kane. Snitsky debuted in a NO DQ match against Kane (who had a kayfabe pregnant Lita as his girlfriend at the time) and Snitsky would push Kane into Lita, causing her to miscarry. This would develop Snitsky as a top level heel as he would continue to feud with Kane, while also mocking Lita and making his catchphrase “It Wasn’t My Fault”. During a segment on The Highlight Reel where Lita was the guest, Snitsky would come down to the ring with a baby in his arms. He would then mock Lita’s misery and shockingly punt the baby (a plastic one) into the crowd to everyone’s disgust. This storyline may have elevated Snitsky into a monster, but it was a very petty way into attaining cheap heat from the WWE.

7 Ultimate Warrior Vomiting after Papa Shango’s Curse
The Ultimate Warrior was one of the biggest icons of the wrestling industry in the late 80s and an inspiration for the current generation of superstars. With his gimmick of being an absolute warrior in the ring who wouldn’t go down even in the most gruelling situations, many were shocked to see him in a vulnerable position while feuding with Papa Shango, a witch doctor, when Warrior returned to the company after some time away. Shango had put a curse on the Warrior causing him to convulse and vomit in very different colors, with WWE’s tracking of Warrior’s disintegration being really gruesome to watch. The filthy vomiting which continued for a good amount of time was really difficult to watch and a real downer for the Ultimate Warrior’s fans who always saw him as this hero who would never go down in the ring, but had to go down to this dirty curse, as its “side-effects” are terrible to watch even after all these years.

1 The Katie Vick Incident
As the Attitude Era was coming to an end and the WWE had bought its competition out, many thought that some of the gruesome things it showed in the past would come to an end because of the lack of competition. They were heavily mistaken. During a feud between Triple H and Kane, Triple H would reveal about Kane’s past how he fell in love with a woman named Katie Vick and caused her death in an accident. This should’ve been enough to depress the Big Red Machine, but Triple H and WWE decided to take it up a notch. They showed a segment in which Triple H dressed as Kane and went to Katie’s funeral, and proceeded to do unspeakable things to her body. As if they hadn’t showed every horrible thing there is to show, they even went ahead with the necrophilia angle which dampened the reputation of the company and the wrestlers involved. This angle was heavily criticized because of how filthy it was, and WWE has never mentioned it ever again realizing how dirty they went with this angle.
