Samantha Irvin gets a lot of attention from WWE fans, as she announced Superstars while they make their way to the ring. It can be a high-pressure job, especially if she flubs her lines.

WWE held Money in the Bank in London’s O2 Arena this year. That arena was packed to the rafters, and fans watched at home from all over the world. Needless to say, everyone was also listening to Samantha Irvin as well.

While speaking to Out of Character, Samantha Irvin explained that announcing Money in the Bank rules are very nerve-raking. After all, there are very specific things that need to be said in order. That being said, she then turned around and botched Bayley’s ring announcement by saying she was a part a part of Judgment Day instead.

“I said ‘representing the Judgment Day’ and I counted, I said it 20 times that week. I said ‘representing Damage CTRL zero times that week.’ I don’t know what happened, and I’m being honest, and this is really on me. I was so relieved that we got through the rules, and then I turned around and Bayley’s coming out and I said, ‘representing Judgment Day, Bayley!’ and then IYO Sky comes out and I was like ‘wait I didn’t say Damage CTRL at all,’ and I look at Mike Rome and I ask what did I say? He goes ‘what? I didn’t hear anything and he was like ‘lemme check Twitter,’ … and he’s like ‘oh yeah, you said Judgment Day.'”


This was an obvious accidental botch, but Twitter didn’t let Samantha Irvin forget about it. Pro wrestling fans have a reputation online for being specially ruthless, and this was no different.

That was an obvious accident from Samantha Irvin, and it only paints the picture that you never know what can happen in WWE. After all, Money in the Bank was a chaotic show, and Twitter is always a mine field.
