10. Mick Foley Called His 2006 Bump The Worst He'd Ever Seen

Tommaso Ciampa

Let it be known that Tommaso Ciampa doesn't like getting others in trouble with the internet. That's why he wouldn't reveal exactly who his opponents were in a dark tag-team match back in 2006. Ciampa did say his partner was Kofi Kingston, but wouldn't give the word on who they were facing.

It doesn't really matter anyway, because that's not the big story here.

Mid-match, Ciampa suffered a hellish bump that'd result in ongoing neck problems. Afterwards, both Mick Foley and Shawn Michaels rushed up to him and asked if he was alright. Then, hilariously considering who it was coming from, Mick called it the "worst bump he'd ever seen". That tickled Tommaso.

Michaels wanted to know straight-up if the guys Ciampa and Kofi had been working with were reliable. He was planning on a D-Generation X program with both, and fancied getting the jump on what he was in for. To his credit, Tommaso refused to throw them under the bus.
