Top 10 "What the Hell" Were They Thinking Stipulation Matches in Pro Wrestling

In wrestling there have been many great stipulation matches for superstars to face off in but for every Hell on a Cell, Ladder Match or Elimination Chamber there have been ones you ask yourself what the hell were they thinking.

The Top Ten

1 The Punjabi Prison Match The Punjabi Prison Match

This match is dedicated to only Indian wrestlers. Why not have a traditional Hell in a Cell match? - KingSlayer93316

Nothing about this match makes any sense, two superstars start in the ring and thet have to either climb over the first wall or through the door with in the allowed time failure to do so and the door is locked for the remainder of the match then after getting over the first wall climb out the second, the match has only been twice and now they plan on bringing it back. - egnomac

This sounds dumb. - EliHbk

2 Kennel From Hell Kennel From Hell

Looks cool

This was nothing more than a Steel Cage match inside a Hell in Cell match surrounded by dogs who were suppose to attack either men as thet tried to escape the match was a complete stinker and I do mean that literally as the dogs were more interested in crapping all over the mat. - egnomac

That match sucked so bad that it was the only one in history.

This has Vince Russo written all over it.

3 Shark Cage Match Shark Cage Match

Two superstars are locked in a shark cage and force to fight each other, due to the small space the match prevented either men from bieng able to do any actual moves. - egnomac

4 Bra and Panties Match Bra and Panties Match

Vince probably got orgasms watching these matches - KingSlayer93316

The object of the match first diva to strip her opponent down to their bra & panties wins and that's pretty much it. - egnomac

I think this happened because Vince McMahon is a pervert.

Even by the title I think it's gonna be gross! - Carsrule300

5 Blindfold Match Blindfold Match

This takes the entire point out of performing.

Blindfold matches never work in wrestling as it prevents either stars from performing an actual wrestling moves and feels more like a game of Marco Pollo. - egnomac

6 Triple Cage Match Triple Cage Match

This looks badass - KingSlayer93316

This looks cool actually... - EliHbk

7 Kiss My A-S Match Kiss My A-S Match

This one needs no explanation. - egnomac

8 Object on a Pole Match Object on a Pole Match

A match were superstars attempt to get an item from a pole in one of the corners and legallt use, I personally hated this sstipulation as the superstars would be more focused on getting the object than actually fighting each other. - egnomac

9 Hardcore Evening Gown Match
10 Scaffold Match

The Contenders

11 445 Light Tubes Deathmatch
12 Asylum Match Asylum Match

On paper it sounded like a decent idea but by actually seeing it first hand it just looked plain ridicules aside from the thumbtacks the match was slow and dragged on longer than it should have. - egnomac

It had cool weapons, to be honest. Also Dean Ambrose’s favorite match stipulation, obviously. - KingSlayer93316

13 No Rope Exploding Barbed Wire Ring Time Bomb Deathmatch

My god Japan, how do you get away with this?

14 The House of Horris

Scariest match

15 San Francisco 49ers Match
16 Kiss My Foot Match

DISGUSTING! Who wants to watch a match where the loser has to kiss the winner's sweaty, bare foot and stick the winner's toes in their mouth? I sure as hell don't. Whoever came up with this must have a foot fetish.

17 Landmine Deathmatch

Restarted japanese

18 Kendo Stick on a Pole
19 Lockbox Challenge
20 Fish Market Street Fight
21 Judy Bagwell On A Pole Match
