The 3 Worst Matches in WWE Raw History – Yahoo! Sports.

Vince McMahon is gearing up for his colossal 1000th episode of WWE Raw
on July 23rd. The sports entertainment company will celebrate the
landmark achievement by presenting a three hour episode featuring pay
per view caliber matches and guest appearances from erstwhile
superstars. To whet the fans appetite, former 90s star Vader made a shocking return on last Monday’s WWE Raw,
defeating Heath Slater in an impressive bout. Vader amassed a
thunderous ovation from the lively crowd, a hopeful sign of things to
come. Besides the episode being a celebration of longevity, it will also
be the first regularly scheduled three hour episode of WWE Raw.

Over the past 19 years, WWE Raw has featured countless outstanding bouts. Matches featuring such superstars as “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock
and Hulk Hogan. But, on the opposite end of those grand matches, are
bouts that weren’t so well received. For fun, here is a list of the
three worst matches in WWE Raw history.

Buff Bagwell vs. Booker T

After WWE purchased WCW, Vince McMahon
staged an invasion storyline, with former WCW guys trying to take over
WWE. As part of the plot, Buff Bagwell and Booker T were booked in the
main event of a 2001 WWE Raw. The match almost single handedly
ruined the invasion angle. The match was so bad, it sucked the life out
of the angle. Bagwell botched spot after spot, leaving the crowd
deflated. Bagwell didn’t last long after that bout, as he was later let
go by the WWE.

Chris Nowinski and Jackie Gayda vs. Trish Stratus and Bradshaw

WWE Tough Enough contestants Chris Nowinski and Jackie Gayda had
their hands full when they took on WWE veterans Trish Stratus and
Bradshaw on an episode of WWE Raw. Unfortunately, Gayda wasn’t
close to being prepared for primetime. Gayda flopped around the ring
like a fish, falling flat on her face and looking utterly confused. The
crowd caught on and booed the foursome. Bradshaw and Stratus tried to
preserve the match, but to no avail.

Rosie O’Donnell vs. Donald Trump

You might be asking yourself, “when did this happen?” Donald Trump and
Rosie O’Donnell were feuding in real life, and McMahon thought it would
be a great idea to try to latch on to the mainstream media. He dressed
two rookie wrestlers in ridiculous outfits and made them wrestle on an
episode of WWE Raw. What may have humored McMahon, did not humor
the crowd in attendance. They vehemently jeered the match. It would have
been funny if it weren’t so pathetic and time wasting.

Certainly in it’s 19 year existence, WWE Raw should be allowed to
produce some stinkers. In fact, these three are far from the only
matches that nearly fueled a riot. But they do stand out as the three
worst matches in the history of WWE Raw.
