5 Of the worst breakups in WWE history
Don't take your love away from me. Don't you leave my heart in misery; if you go then I'll be blue, cause breaking up is hard to do. – Breaking Up Is Hard to Do
Welcome to the he said, she said part of wrestling programming. The one where honesty and reality tend to skew the lines of this business. While love is a common theme of this business, it does not always mean a happy ending. Love breeds contempt, especially when a huge superstar gets hurt in the process.
There have been rocky roads traveled (Kevin Sullivan-Nancy Benoit), sad stories written (Debra McMichael and Steve Austin) and of course the ones we don’t dare talk about these days (John Cena and Micki James).
It wouldn’t be professional wrestling unless there was a bit soap opera, a bit of drama and a whole lot of sadness. And to top it all off, Vince McMahon has used this to make money and prey upon his employees’ feelings.
We list them out:
#1 Lita and Matt Hardy
When Lita Essa Rios burst onto the scene in WWE, it did not take long for the creative team to discover how great a talent she is on her own. In the meantime, she struck up a relationship with Matt and Jeff Hardy, with Matt and Lita having an on and off air romance.
While everything seemed cozy between the two, Lita struck up a romantic relationship with Edge, which was played out once again on television with some of the most salacious scenes on WWE programming. Hardy’s hatred and hurt played out for everyone to see, which was great for ratings and bad for him in terms that he did not get the girl back.
