5 common pre-match rituals followed by WWE superstars
There are some rituals which are followed by a large portion of the WWE locker room.
If you know anything about the world of sports, then you know that superstitions and rituals are an important part of them. Athletes have a specific way of doing specific things, and they’re never going to change them for fear of breaking their lucky charms. It’s very similar in the world of sports entertainment for professional wrestlers.
There are a number of pre-match rituals which WWE superstars follow in order to ensure they have a great – and more importantly, safe – match in front of thousands of people in the audience and the millions of people watching at home.
Some of these rituals may be confined to a particular superstar or group of superstars, but today we are here to explore some of the more common practices that are used by those competing in Vince McMahon’s promotion.
So, without any further ado, here are 5 common pre-match rituals followed by WWE superstars:
#5 Isolating themselves
Coming in at number five on our list is WWE superstars isolating themselves. While this may not be typical for tag teams and stables, a lot of singles wrestlers decide to get away from the rest of the locker room in order to prepare themselves for their upcoming physical contest mentally.
This makes sense as some men and women need to be alone with their thoughts in order to build concentration, focus on the matter at hand, and get into the battle zone. If your head’s not on right, you could end up seriously hurting yourself or your opponent.
Superstars like John Cena, The Miz, and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T are some notable examples of people who are big fans of isolation and getting away from all the hustle and bustle of the backstage area during a big show.
