3 terrible WWE locker room leaders and 3 great ones
The WWE locker room has certainly evolved over the years. Back in the 80s and 90s, the locker room was notorious for being an absolutely nasty and toxic place, where grown men acted like children and "ribs" or pranks as they're called, were taken too far, too often.
The circumstances of everything was completely different back then. The schedules were even crazier and usage of alcohol and pills were rampant. It's safe to say that locker rooms have matured a lot more since then and even consumption of pills have reduced, while overall alcohol and drug consumption has drastically gone down as well.
Either way, the locker room has always been full of leaders - good and bad. It has always been a mixed bag in the past and not as healthy as it is today. We look at the good and bad sides of locker room leaders!
#3. Terrible - Chris Benoit
Every time Chris Benoit's name is mentioned, people instantly refer to the 2007 tragedy. Since everybody already knows about it, we'll choose to skip it. It's been revealed that in 2005/06, Benoit was one of the locker room leaders and he really made sure to keep young superstars in check.
There was a time when a superstar reportedly disrespected Shawn Michaels, so Benoit made him do a 1000 squats while doing it beside him. When the superstar complained about not being able to walk, Benoit made him do 500 more.
Then, there was the infamous Miz incident, where The A-Lister was eating chicken over Benoit's bag, spilling some on it as well. An infuriated Benoit kicked him out of the locker room and for six months, The Miz was made to change in small rooms outside until he earned his place right back.
