What a balls-up: Fans lose it over wrestler's embarrassing mishap

Wrestling fans have gone nuts (pun intended) over a series of hilarious wardrobe malfunctions involving Daniel Bryan.

The WWE star gave viewers way more than they bargained for during the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view extravaganza in Philadelphia over the weekend.

The five-time world champion might have been left a little red-faced after exposing himself to a packed crowd and thousands watching his match against Drew Gulak on television screens around the world.

The skimpy trunks the 38-year-old was wearing clearly weren't tailored suitably for the wrestler as his private parts slipped out on more than one occasion.

Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed the embarrassing balls-up as social media was inundated with hilarious reaction to the scenes.

Bryan eventually won the match but didn't seem fazed by all the fuss he'd created when speaking after the contest.

“This is what I love about professional wrestling," he said in an interview with WWE.com.

“I don't ever want to just go through the motions: I want to fight with my heart, I want to fight with blood and guts. That's what I wanna fight with!”

It was an eventful night for Bryan in more ways than one, with the star also suffering nasty scare.

Viewers held their collective breath when Bryan looked to have landed awkwardly on his neck from a suplex.

He stayed down for several moments after being flung dramatically to the canvas, sparking concern from fans on social media.
