10 Huge WWE Upset Wins That Led To Nothing

10 upset wins in WWE that led to absolutely nothing

Andy Ruiz Jr. knocking out Anthony Joshua. The New York Giants winning Super Bowl XLII. The Miracle on Ice. These are just some examples of massive upsets from the wider sporting world. 

Wrestling has also seen its fair share of underdog victories, with some leading to significant career upsurges for the winning party. Unfortunately, not everyone can be the 1-2-3 Kid after beating Razor Ramon, as these 10 unfortunate souls demonstrated. 

These are 10 huge WWE upset wins that led to nothing. 

10. Heath Slater def. Seth Rollins - August 4, 2014 episode of Raw

Heath slater beats seth rollins 2014

In the aftermath of Seth Rollins introducing a steel chair to Roman Reigns’ back, the newly-minted baddie began a feud with former Shield buddy Dean Ambrose, with the two set for a match at SummerSlam 2014.

The stipulation was set to be chosen by the winner of a Beat the Clock challenge on Raw. Ambrose had beaten Alberto Del Rio in about 15 minutes earlier that night, so all Rollins had to do was win his match in less time. 

And who was his opponent? Perennial jobber Heath Slater. In a delightful turn of events, Ambrose distracted his nemesis, allowing the former 3MB man to roll Rollins up and score a huge win. 

This was a legitimately feel-good moment, as Slater had been trying to make something out of nothing since The Nexus broke up. Surely a win over a rising star like Seth would put him on the right track?

Well, let’s see, he beat Dolph Ziggler by count-out, then went on a mini-winning streak on Main Event, then he and Titus O’Neil lost a tag team match to Los Matadores. Oh well.
