Favorite hotshot booking was Rey Mysterio winning the title for a chance to potentially FINALLY get his title reign right... and several seconds later Kane cashed in his MITB and won the title from him as part of his 20-year-plan to destroy the Undertaker.

My favorite hotshot booking would be TNA quickly and quietly sweeping the AJ Styles/Claire storyline under the rug.

My favorite hotshot booking was when WWE finally got Roman over in goddamn Philly as a face and then had him lose the title to HHH so he could have his epic crowning at WrestleMania and everyone hated him again.

Staying healthy due to sheer coincidence.

Favorite hotshot booking was the WWE Women's Championship going from its 1st through 5th owners in the span of a month.

I know we like to post ironically here but some of my genuinely favorite hotshot booking was when Zack Ryder won the IC belt at Mania only to lose it to The Miz the next day, catapultng the latter into his greatest run ever (which is still going on!). Not really sure if that really counts as hotshot booking but I think it does since Ryder wasn't even in the match before Neville got his foot murdered and he was slotted in instead, iirc

Also thank u Golashes for doing this thing

Bad girls think that you're being a boob punch


My favorite hotshot booking decision was when WWE made a big deal about CM Punk potentially leaving with the company with the championship after Money In The Bank and then rushed his return to television after an entire one episode of Raw without him.

Rey Mysterio winning the tournament for CM Punk's "vacated" title, only to have John Cena, a face who had not wrestled all night, challenge him for the title (and easily win) immediately after his match finished.

SNATTER'S ALIVE?!?!


A WCW employee wrestling a WWE employee for the ECW world championship.

The winner then losing that belt to an ECW regular who didn't want it.

Who then lost it immediately in an impromptu match to a guy who ended up working at Olive Garden.
