It Came From YouTube: Sid’s best promo ever

12 Submitted by on Fri, 21 November 2014, 02:00

This is of course Sid Vicious’ infamous promo from WCW Nitro where he stumbles over his big line and makes himself look particularly stupid in the process.

It’s Hall and Nash’s reaction that really makes this a classic.

    I try to watch this anytime I feel a bad mood coming cause it makes me laugh everytime I watch it. I may be responsible for 90% of the views that the video has on the counter.

    There were lots of those slips at this time in WCW. The Sid one was awesome but I really need someone to dig up my favorite which was from Bam Bam Bigelow in late 1999.

    Bam Bam is going after David Flair on Nitro and screams, you wanna pick on a girl, pick on me.

    My college roommate and I had a good laugh at that one.

    You could devote your entire website to promos by Sid and Scott Steiner and have enough material to Y3K. To this day, I wonder if he did that on purpose.

    I loved on that WWE Countdown of “Biggest Blunders,” they did a whole thing on Sid, guys mocking him and Sid himself just shrugging it all off. Nice how they nailed it “He was great looking as a bad-ass, he’d have been much better if he just never talked.”

    0:18 in, listen to the fan yelling.

  6. Vic says:

    Sid, Scott Steiner and Ahmed Johnson should make a comedy starring themselves. That would be the greatest thing ever.

  7. SCFNL says:

    I could be wrong, but did Sid not do a shoot interview (maybe about 3-4 years ago) where he claimed he was actually instructed to go out and get that line wrong (possibly by Nash if he was booking at the time, I can’t recall). I’m almost certain he goes on a rant about it in the interview and claims the promo was scripted rather than him getting it wrong.

      Yes, I’ve heard that too. He said it was because they were pushing him hard as being crazy. Sounds plausible, but I’m sure we’ll never know for sure.
