5 WWE backstage fights you are unaware of
WWE is just a mixture of wrestling, and entertainment that is better known as Sports Entertainment. When wrestlers step foot into the ring, we expect them to be as brutal as possible. To fulfill our demands, wrestlers sweat blood. However, they don’t fight each other for real.
I mean they do but not exactly in the way we think. Wrestlers receive a script before their match which tells them what to do in front of the camera. I agree that some moves look dangerous, and the pain can’t be hidden, but still, wrestlers try their best not to hurt their opponents.
However, in such a hostile environment, things are likely to get worse in some instances. It is when some Superstars decide to assault for real. Some wrestlers fight and settle things down whereas some become rivals for life. So without wasting any more time, let’s look at five WWE Superstars who took small things to a physical level.
#5 Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty
Shawn Michaels is a WWE legend. He started his wrestling journey decades ago, and according to many wrestlers, Michaels used to be impolite during his initial WWE days. And, it’s another reason why he was unpopular backstage.
At one point, Michaels used to be in a tag team with Marty Jannetty. However, according to some reports, they didn’t like each other in real life.
According to Armpit Wrestling, both wrestlers fought each other during the early ‘90s because of Roddy Piper. Jannetty, reportedly, won the fight smoothly. Years later, in an interview, he said, “I’ll tell you what, I like Shawn, although I don’t like him anything like I used to, he can’t fight. He’s a good wrestler, but he can’t fight.”
The fight also caught the eyes of cops, but Randy Savages saved the two by saying that they are just practicing.
