5 things that WWE hides from its fans

From wrestler relationships to the magical powers of referees, here are some things that WWE hides from us.

The ‘Kayfabe brothers’ of destruction

The most integral part of the professional wrestling business is the fan base. Every promotion out there thrives on the strength of its fans, and WWE is no different. Being the largest wrestling promotion in the world, it is important for the company to keep its fans happy.

While that might sound like an easy job on paper, as wrestling fans, we are well aware of the demands that we have.

It would also be safe to say that the professional wrestling fan base is among the most demanding group of people out there. And one thing that the fans always want from a promotion like WWE is full disclosure.

Even though there is such a need among the WWE fans, the company tries to keep some things secret from its fans. In this list, we take a look at some of those things.


#5 Chris Benoit

The man that got erased from history books

This is an obvious entry into the list. While wrestling fans would remember Chris Benoit for being one of the best wrestlers of his era, what happened in his personal life has made Benoit an outcast in the WWE Universe.

The fans do address Benoit every now and then but WWE likes to keep everything related to Benoit under wraps.

The way in which they talk about WrestleMania XX and the Royal Rumble that preceded it are prime examples of how WWE are trying to erase Benoit from their history books. But the legacy he left in the wrestling business is not that easy to erase and somewhere deep down, everyone in the WWE is aware of this as well.

To an extent, CM Punk is also getting a similar treatment these days. But unlike what happened with Benoit, Punk would be welcomed back if he decides to take a U-turn and say goodbye to his mixed martial arts dreams.
