ONTD runs on drama, drama between celebrities, drama between random ass people on the street, drama between dogs. I've mentioned it before but I feel like ONTD could really get into the oil covered, angry, drama-filled world of Pro-Wrestling.
So what I thought I'd do is provide a list of the most dramatic, gossip-worthy, nasty and overall ONTD like storylines in pro-wrestling history.
All of these matches, stories and events are available to watch on WWE Network, a streaming service that has a free first month that becomes $9.99 a month.
Johnny Gargano Vs. Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans 2018
Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa were best friends and members of the tag team #DIY. They performed as a singular unit in matches, winning match of the year in 2016 and the tag team championship that same year.
Johnny Gargano (aka Johnny Wrestling) was beloved by the crowd, adored by fans and was clearly seen as someone who could shoot to the top and win the gold by himself. After losing the titles and then a chance to regain them Ciampa turned on Johnny and told him to get on by himself.
So Johnny did, he went on to have a stellar year that ended with an incrdible match against 'Cien' Almas but just failed to win.
As he stood on the ramp, cheers and appaulse erupting from the crowd, Ciampa cam from behind and smashed him in the back with a crutch. Beating him down in front of his screaming wife.
The stage was set at Takeover: New Orleans. Amn unsanctioned match that the company made the men sign waivers for. No refs, no rules, nothing held back. These men beat each other, bled, fought and screamed to the best match of 2018 so far.
CM Punk Vs. John Cena at Money in the Bank 2011
CM Punk ran a warpath through WWE in 2011. He knew what he wanted, knew his worth and skill and didn't give a fuck about his boss's thoughts. He wanted more time, more money, more merchandise. He's the most popular person in the company, why shouldn't he?
John Cena was the happy go lucky face of the company. He sold Fruity Pebbles, anti-bullying campaigns, Scooby Doo movies and other kid friendly things. The boss needed him to keep being champ, he NEEDED him to be the face of the company again, not someone who had no respect like Punk.
That leads to Money in the Bank 2011. Punk's contract was up and if he won he made it clear he was leaving the company with the belt in a 'fuck you' to the boss and everyone else there. Cena needed to win to keep the boss happy.
Shawn Michaels Vs. Hulk Hogan at Summerslam 2005
This is all about the behind the scenes drama. Hulk Hogan is a fucking asshole. Not only is he racist and a giant douchebag but he's hated by nearly everyone he's ever worked with in the business. He's the kiss-up politicing dickhead in every single office job combined into one big hot dog colored mess.
Shawn Michaels is one of, if not the, greatest performers in the history of pro-wrestling. Now he's a big of a shithead too, but as he's aged and grown he's apologized and grown past his dickhead ways.
What happens when these two are put in a match together?
Hogan was meant to win this match and then lose another to Shawn. Two weeks prior he put the kibosh on that and was only willing to have one match, one he wins. So Shawn decided to say 'fuck it'.
The entire match Shawn made Hogan look like a dickhead. He treated every punch like he was hit with a nuclear bomb, he flopped around the ring like an idiot for every single move. He made Hogan look like a joke in front of thousands of people because Hogan's a prick.
