10. Sabu Suffers a Broken Neck by Chris Benoit – ECW November to Remember 1994
Chris Benoit was always known as a ‘stiff’ worker and that was never more evident than in 1994 when he broke the neck of Sabu. The incident took place at the 1994 ECW November to Remember when Sabu landed wrong after a suplex, breaking his neck. Sabu was paralyzed for a few moments after taking the fall, but was able to recover and make it back to the ring.
In an ideal world, one could donate to whatever charity of one’s choosing and rest assured that the money would go towards helping make the world a better place. Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world and many charities are operating under the guise of doing good while, in actuality, they’re for-profit operations misallocating funds, stealing money and sometimes even promoting prejudice and hate in the process. Here are the 10 worst charities to donate money or goods to.
10. Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation

9. Children’s Cancer Fund of America

Paid To Solicitors: $34.4 million
% Spent On Direct Cash Aid: 4.6%
Bayer is the maker of Aspirin and one of the top pharmaceutical companies in the world. In 1984 they sold HIV and Hepatitis C contaminated blood products which caused up to 10,000 people in the U.S. alone to contract HIV. After they found out the drug was contaminated, they pulled it off the U.S. market and sold it to countries in Asia and Latin America so they could still make money.
Its CEO just last year said they make life saving cancer drugs for "the rich people who could afford it".
The company is the largest bottled water distributor in the world and is using a variety of methods to obtain water, including brokering loopholes in water protection acts and costly public campaigns. As water supplies dwindle drastically and communities feel the strain, Nestlé continues to siphon the public’s water and sell it back to them at a hefty profit.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors at Nestle said “water is a foodstuff like any other and like any other foodstuff it should have a market value.”
Nestle also aggressively promoted its baby formula in poor areas, even telling women it was better for their babies. They gave samples to poor mothers, who used it, and then had to continue using it because their milk supplies had since dried up. Nestlé did this in areas where it was known that most people lack access to clean water, which is necessary to safely administer formula. Also, when the free samples ran out, the families often could not afford the high costs of formula (having lost access to their free breast milk) and they would buy as much as they could afford and then make it stretch, resulting in malnourished babies.
10. The Bullmastiff
Search far and wide for all manner of dog breeds, but you will never find one with the size and power of the bullmastiff. That’s because these dogs have been specifically bred for nearly two centuries to ensure one thing: whatever they watch over remains undisturbed. Hailing from Britain, these dogs have a fierce loyalty to their masters without being so over-protective that they are a threat to children.
They’re never a case of a bark being worse than a bite, furthermore, since their jaws can easily crush bone and they rarely bark unless directly approached by intruders. A male bullmastiff can weigh as much as 150 pounds, making them capable of tackling a human their size or larger without a second thought. They’re not as intelligent as other dog breeds that have been trained for work, so they need frequent guidance to learn commands and need to be trained in different ways, since these giants dislike doing the same tasks over and over.
It’s not necessary to train these dogs to protect their family, however, since their prey drive kicks in whenever a stranger approaches. Their prey drive isn’t triggered by other environmental objects, meaning that they won’t bark at other dogs or at squirrels, but are always certain to intimidate anyone who happens to come by. Due to the difficulty in training, it’s common for owners to keep them as outdoors dogs rather than housetraining these massive canines.
As these dogs grow large, however, they often do not live very long, with a median age of only seven or eight years. During that time, however, they’re sure to be a protective force that can intimidate anyone thinking of breaking into a property where they are stationed, no matter what they happen to guard within its four walls.
10. The Ironman Triathalon
Arguably the world’s most famous one-day endurance event, the Ironman World Championship is a true test of all-around ability and fortitude. To complete the famed race in Kona, Hawaii, competitors must swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and then run 26.2 miles. And before you can even think about racing Kona, you need to qualify by posting a top time at a different Ironman event. “Finishing [Ironman Kona] gives you something to hang your hat on for the rest of your life,” says Kevin Mackinnon, managing editor of Ironman.com. “The winds are insane, the heat is unbearable, and when you put that together with competing against the fittest athletes on the planet, it just doesn’t get any tougher.”
10. Five Characters in Search of an Exit
It sounds like the start of a bad joke: an army major wakes up in a metal cylinder and meets a hobo, a ballet dancer, a bagpiper, and a clown. Things are never quite as they seem in The Twilight Zone, and there aren’t a lot of laughs to be found in this premise.
Instead, these five characters trapped in a strange tube seek to not only escape, but also figure out where they are. The results are as surprising as you’d expect given the history of the show. This was season three’s Christmas episode, but hardly filled with mirth and good cheer. It did inspire Vincenzo Natali’s cult classic film Cube
9. It’s A Good Life
The fantasy of every child — to have unlimited power against grown-ups — is made horrifyingly real in 1961’s “It’s a Good Life.” Bill Mumy plays six-year-old Anthony Freemont, a boy with incredible psychic powers who holds everyone around him hostage. It’s sort of like Game of Thrones, if little King Joffrey could simply think you out of existence for displeasing him. The adults tiptoe around the kid, but it never really matters, because he’s six, and six-year-olds aren’t particularly rational in the first place. That ever-present sense of menace exuded from the adorable face of Mumy is what makes things work. Like “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” the episode was remade for the Twilight Zone movie. It also got a sequel in the 2002 Twilight Zone revival series, entitled “It’s Still a Good Life,” wherein Anthony is now a grown-up and his daughter has inherited his abilities. Bill Mumy and Chloris Leachman reprise their original roles, and Mumy’s real-life daughter serves as the story’s new tyrant.
10. Rey Misterio Jr. vs. Eddy Guerrero, Halloween Havoc 97
Rey Mysterio had defeated Eddie Guerrero on two separate occasions prior to this. Guerrero’s frustration had caused him to try to rip of Rey’s mask, which led to this legendary title vs mask bout at Halloween Havoc. This match is borderline perfect, I mean really the moves are almost pulled off flawlessly. These are not just hip tosses and head locks too, I mean crazy corkscrew spins, backflips and hurricarana’s out the ass. One can really see that these two were on point when Rey Mysterio hits the fanciest DDT of all time. This is no spot fest though, it is paced very well and Guerrero orchestrates like the virtuoso that he is. Guerrero stretches and beats down Rey Mysterio through out the match. Rey keeps trying to hit Guerrero with big high flying moves, but the champ is just too sly for that. It’s interesting to see when Guerrero finally starts losing his concentration, it is subtle and not over acted like you would see in many other matches. Anyone who loves Jr Heavyweight action needs to see this one.
Doomsday was created and evolved through cloning an infant and having it killed over and over again in one of the harshest habitats in existence, prehistoric Krypton. In other words, he was bred to be nasty.
Many may complain that Doomsday was a marketing ploy but you gotta give him his due becasue he did kill Superman and killing the Man of Steel has to count for something. If you are a one-trick pony, killing the greatest superhero in comic book history is certainly a good place to start. He also defeated the entire Just League, with one arm literally tied behind his back, before killing Superman.
Most heinous crime: He killed Superman.
