My personal pick for most unintentionally hilarious trainwreck I've witnessed.

 

Dr. Wagner Jr. vs. LA Park vs. Mascara Sagrada vs. Pirata Morgan vs. Hijo de Dos Caras vs. Demon Clown (IWRG 20/07/2014)

 

After breaking the only two ladders they had, a one-sided step-ladder is found. Pirata and the referee are forced to hold the ladder for Dos Caras to climb (all while trying to maintain kayfabe - badly), naturally, everybody else just stops caring. Parka walks off for a good portion of the match, Demon Clown put in an all-time worst performance and when Caras finally managed to grab the belt, he couldn't pull it loose, leading to him dangling awkwardly for minutes while Pirata tries tugging on him as aid. There are Smackdown TV matches that are shorter than the time Caras spent tugging at his belt.

 

It was so awful that IWRG ran the same match type again; much to the same horrible outcome.

 

 

The Botchamania highlights start at 10:10

Kurt Angle vs Shane McMahon King of the Ring 2001. I cringe every time Shane gets thrown into the glass like a bug against a windshield and it doesn't break, but I can't stop watching.

Sting vs Jarrett from Halloween Havoc 2000 definetely. The weird cage/X Division trios match from 2015 Triplemania was an awful trainwreck. Another one AAA related is the La Parka vs Cibernetico apuestas match from Triplemania, I won't spoil it because the ending minutes are wonderful. Taker vs Warrior body bag match might also deserve a mention but it isn't very amusing to watch. I recall a wrestling match in a fed here in Argentina that ended with a wrestler hanging his opponent on a crane in the middle of the street,

I randomly stumbled over this today reading an old DVDVR looking for info on Arsion:

 

INDY WORLD JAPAN PRO- 5/21/98

 

Goro Tsurumi/ Apollo Sugawara vs Bulldog/ Devil #1

 

(byRASMUSSEN)
Phil Schneider in DVDVR #84 had THIS to say about the Devils match in Indy World Japan Pro Wrestling 5/21/98: "Kind of fun despite the hideous wrestling involved. The Devil's are these three little guys, in matching skeleton outfits (kind of like someone described La Parka's gear to them but they had never seen it) they do this thing where they stand in a circle and spin around so you can never tell whether the guy getting back in the ring is the one who left the ring, kind of human three card monte. They also do this shoulder shrug thing, which I don't get but kind of dug.... The Devil's win with a switcharoo they stole from the Power Twins." Don't get me wrong, Phil Schneider is VERY knowledgable wrestling fan and great human being and a true patriot who loves dogs and the kids, but I think his gift for understatement in trying to keep his veneer of objectivity about this match is pushing the limits of SANITY here. THE DEVILS #1,#2, and #3 ARE ABSOLUTELY FRICKING GREAT. They do this thing where they swirl around in a cluster and then one jumps into the ring! YOU CAN'T TELL WHICH ONE COMES OUT! THEY MIGHT NOT EVEN BE CHEATING! ISN'T THAT FUCKIGN GREAT OR WHAT!! And they do this shoulder shrugging thing that totally baffles me. This compares to the Space Aliens that cheated for Silver X against Ryama Go at the Tokyo Dome, the whole Antichristo interview and the freaked out procession taking Green Ant Boy Yakushiji in his masked debut as weirdest motherfrucking things I've seen in pro wrestling. Inexplicably baffling and that facet of greatness you ONLY get in the indies.

 

Comparison to Antichristo is pretty high praise. Anybody have a video of this?

 

Oh yeah and add that Ryuma Go vs. space jews match from the Tokyo Dome.

 

Also, Keita Yano is entirely a meme by now.

Actually, the Great Kojika (I think, or maybe it was Kendo Nagasaki), destroying a small town market while beating on rookies on a special BJPW video tape may take the cake of fucking bizarre and awesome.

Wajima vs. Magee?

Great call, gonna check if there's a thread for it.

 

Japanese microindies are full of weird stuff so naturally that'll be up there.

I remember talk of a four way ladder match on DVDR board awhile back where each ladder was a different color and you had to climb your designated colored ladder to win? Does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

Given that KeMonito is himself a meme, does he have any good meme matches?

The greatest spot in wrestling history.. not sure the match

Not sure if Jerry Estrada vs. Javier Cruz 10/22/89 counts for this but it was probably the biggest example of a guy (Estrada) being obviously fucked up yet still having a match (and a LONG match at that) before the Jeff Hardy/Sting debacle.
