Date: 11/27/1986
Event: Starrcade 1999

One of the most interesting parts of pro wrestling is how anyone can get involved in the theatrics of it. The ref, the managers, the fans: they're all a part of the spectacle along with the wrestlers. However, one of the most painful instances of this feature was when wrestling manager, Jim Cornette, fell from 20 feet and blew out an entire knee. Hanging from a scaffold, Cornette—who was supposed to fall into the arms of Big Bubba Rogers below—ended up misjudging his position and falling too far from his partner. Cornette would end up needing surgery for the injury, but was otherwise okay, and continues to manage to this day.
