I know they say 'rules are made to be broken', but sometimes they're only broken because of the rebellious nature of an individual. The WWE is known to be the land of the wacky and unpredictable, but there are still rules in place, rules made for a good reason.
Due to the dangerous nature of wrestling, rules are made to protect the safety of the wrestlers and performers involved. However, despite the good intentions behind these rules, a lot of wrestlers over the years have refused to follow them. Not only did they refuse to follow them, but they were also simply allowed to rebel too......
Here are five WWE superstars that constantly disobeyed the rules and ran rough-shot over their peers backstage.
#5 Randy Orton
When you're part of the golden OVW generation and one of the most naturally gifted wrestlers of all time, there's a lot you can seemingly get away with. In his early years, it's no secret that Randy Orton was a menace backstage, on several occasions, he was accused of disgustingly defacing co-worker's luggage bags and playing costly pranks on other wrestlers.
As a gifted youngster, perhaps, it was all too much too soon, for the son of the great Bob Orton Jr. With a lack of guidance and an abundance of immaturity, Randy found himself on the wrong end of several wellness violation suspensions due to his constant flirting with marijuana.
Orton in an interview with the WWE magazine (which no longer exists) in 2006, stated that he used marijuana as a coping mechanism for his anger management issues. It's been widely reported that Orton often smoked joints in his dressing room and officials turned a blind eye to it, due to a third wellness violation signalling the end of his career.
Perhaps, due to his status as a top star, he was allowed to have one-off joints backstage, without it being a violation. However, these rebellious days are now behind Orton, who has just welcomed into the world a new baby daughter with his wife.
