I remember a Bobby Lashley promo from the first Smackdown of this year and he talks about his plans for 2006. He talks about winning the Royal Rumble and going against Batista at Wrestlemania. Everything was okay until the end where he goes, "Yeah...I like the sound of that". Add how high pitch his voice sounds and the face he made and it was probably the funniest moment for me this year while watching wrestling.
Think about Dusty Rhodes "That's Hard Times" Promo:
"I'm gonna reach out right now. And I want you people sitting at home to know that my hand is touching your hand. For this country, of the biggest body of people in this country, in this universe, now reach it out."
It's intense when you listen to it, then when you write it out like this, it kinda makes you laugh.

At WrestleMania VI, Warrior was showing Hogan his warrior sign that he drew on the locker room wall and said that since red and yellow were contained in the drawing, this somehow proved that he didn't want to destroy Hulkamania.

there's this overtly bizzare on I found on ytmnd the other night of the Warrior. I think it was a bunch of promos pieced together to make it seem even weirder actually. (I haven't seen the "Self-Destruction DVD" yet, so pardon my ignorance)

I still love the Mean Gene "hug it!" bit from Summerslam.
Someone mentioned Jake from Survivor Series '91...isn't that the one where (and I'm going by memory, so I may be off), Gene says something like "These people don't care very much for you, Jake Roberts" and he responds with "What do you know? I spoke with God this morning, and He told me that He doesn't like you.
Yes, Jake said that. It was awesome!
lol yeah Jake was stealing a quote from an Ozzy song from the album "No more Tears". Ozzy sings the part about having a talk with god and god saying he don't like you. I forgot which song!
anyway the whole Chucky and Rick Steiner one comes to mind. They tried to be a little serious with that and it just came off so funny and stupid.

Mike Awesome cut some unintentionally funny promos he sounded like Khali with Laryngitis, I remember one episode of ECW on tnn when Mike was the Champ he stood in the middle of the ring (clutching to the belt) and schreeched....
"baaaauuuurrrrruuaaaarrrr my title aaahhh ooooooo mmma ggaaaaaa daaaaa plinky plinky pong pong baaarruurr *Points to someone in the audience* Hey f*** you man bbbaaarrrr hhaaaat"
I wish I could find that clip its so damn funny.
another great one was when Chris Masters grabbed Carlito backstage......
No mention of Shane Douglas yet? "Terry Funk, I smashed your knee to obli..ga...tory!" The promo was going well up to that point. I also like Kevin Nash's debut on Nitro. "This is where the big boys play, huh? Look at the adjective... play! We ain't here to play!" "Play" is a verb Big Kev. Thanks for "playing" anyway, "playa"!
nothing will touch the Luger one, but the one that Magnum T.A. did in the 80s about Tully Blanchard is gold. I mean back then, what he was saying woulda been pretty tough-guy sounding, now it just sounds very... what's the word... oh yes, Gay.
