When it comes to matches in WWE, it is hard for anyone such as Vince McMahon to pick out a favorite. While there could be a number of matches that the big boss loves, he actually appears to have figured out which one is his least favorite of all-time. As a matter of fact, McMahon has revealed that a particular match at WrestleMania XXVII is the “worst thing” he has seen in more than 60 years of being in the wrestling business.
It’s really hard to think that one can pick a least favorite match from one year or even one month, but a lifetime? McMahon seems like the type of person who remembers every single match he has ever seen, but there is one that he’d likely rather forget about entirely.
On a recent episode of After The Bell with Corey Graves, Michael Cole discussed his career in announcing and even in the ring. That conversation brought up his match against Jerry “The King” Lawler at WrestleMania XXVII, which actually resulted in a victory for Cole, leaving him undefeated at the big pay-per-view.
During the event, Cole had a tooth knocked out, began bleeding profusely and won the match by disqualification. While things weren’t overly pretty in the match, it couldn’t have been expected that McMahon would absolutely hate it — but he did.

Cole said that after the match was over, he was carried backstage as a “bloody mess,” and he approached McMahon. Cole said that he told the boss he thought things went pretty well for his match with Lawler, but Vince thought differently. Upon seeing Cole backstage, Vince made his true feelings known about what had just happened.
“That is the worst thing I’ve ever witnessed in 60 years.”
While some may find it hard to believe that this particular match is the worst thing Vince has ever seen in wrestling, it’s not out of the question. Many fans are in complete agreement with the assessment as it has always been seen as one of the worst matches in WWE history.
Cole has not entered the ring often since being a part of WWE, and it is unlikely he will ever do it again. Still, he’s happy with the match he had and he’s undefeated at WrestleMania, while also having been paid to do it. McMahon may think that his match with Lawler is the worst thing ever, but it’s not like there haven’t been other questionable things in wrestling over the years.
