25 Most Memorable Wrestling Promos Of All-Time

"Austin 3:16 said I just whipped your ass".

Some of professional wrestling's all-time greatest moments had nothing to do with physical competition. When you take someone who has a lot to say and you give them a microphone, different kinds of fireworks can happen. You might get a promo that is filled with anger and rage. You might get one that is filled with comedy and one-liners. On the flip side, there are also those occasions where you get one that has no direction and is filled with mistakes. When someone has a microphone up to their face, you really never know what it is you're going to get, but that's part of the fun. There are a lot of things that make a wrestling promo "memorable". Whether it's a great line or an awkward flub, great promotion of an upcoming match or simply someone "shooting from the hip", the promo has become an invaluable aspect to the business, especially over the last 30 some-odd years. The 25 entries on this list stand out above all else for one reason or another. Some of them are memorable because of how great they are, while others are memorable for the opposite reasoning. If you're a big enough fan, you can remember exactly where you were when you heard many of these promos for the first time. Some of you can even recite them by heart. That just goes to show what a memorable promo can do and just how powerful they are.
