5 recent domestic violence incidents in the WWE
Unfortunately, the violence isn't always confined to the squared circle
It’s time now to look at the uglier side of pro wrestling. Despite what we may think, professional wrestlers, especially WWE Superstars, are not superhuman. They’re prone to the same kinds of bad choices that regular people are.
And this, unfortunately,includes the ugly realm of domestic violence.
The 5 wrestlers on this list are the most recent cases of WWE superstars that embroiled themselves in domestic violence controversy.
#1 Drew McIntyre
He’s moved on and is making quite a name for himself on the indy circuit, but former WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre (now wrestling as Drew Galloway), is probably best remembered for his time in WWE.
Initially pegged as “The Chosen One”, handpicked by Mr. McMahon as a future World Champion, Drew’s once promising career took a turn for the worse when word got out that he had been involved in a domestic violence incident with his then-wife Taryn Terell (former WWE Diva Tiffany).
Despite what you might think, McIntyre was not the aggressor, but the victim. In August of 2010, Taryn was arrested following an alleged fist fight with her then-husband and suspended indefinitely by WWE.
While the couple would split and she would be released by the company, Drew hung around though his career was never the same. His reputation seemingly tarnished by the whole thing, Drew would spend the rest of his days in WWE as a low-card worker, both in singles competition and as a member of jobber faction 3MB.
Vince surely couldn’t have been too happy about that!
