To the jaw! As important as grappling is to professional wrestling, more often than not a match is based around throwing punches. Some people are better than others but there’s something to be said about a good punch in wrestling. It might be even better if someone doesn’t see it coming.

That sounds like a countdown.

WWE has released a new top ten list of the most Infamous Sucker Punches in WWE. Most of these are more modern entries, many of which took place on TV rather than in a major pay per view match. Several of them involved an authority figure in one way or another but a good number of them were wrestler to wrestler.

Here are the results from a punch that made the list.

Opinion: This isn’t the most thrilling list in the world as the majority of these aren’t exactly memorable moments. The Triple H punch to Kurt Angle was recent rather than big and Big Show punching John Cena wasn’t even the most infamous incident of the same exchange. This wasn’t really interesting stuff but it’s better than nothing.

You have to practice.
