Timing is very important in the world of pro wrestling.
Getting things timed correctly in the ring can often be the difference between a good match and a great match and, in the case of high spots, the difference between success and failure or even life and death.
Outside of the actual matches, timing is also important in the backstage world of wrestling.
Deciding when to give a certain performer a push and when to hold back can make or break a career. Push somebody too soon and fans won't accept them. Push somebody too late and they won't care.
It's the latter that we concern ourselves with today, as we look back at the sorry history of ten wrestlers who had their triggers pulled far too late.
The following ten stars all won top championships across various promotions, but they all did so once the perfect moment had gone. As a result, their big wins were significantly undermined.
Let us know if you can think of any other examples of slow trigger-pulling in wrestling, but, for now, enjoy these ten on us.
Not sure if enjoy is the right word, but you know what we mean.
