5 WWE Superstar pranks that didn't go down too well with their victims
WWE Superstars are on the road 300 days a year and things can get pretty stuffy if there isn't a good dose of laughter going about. A few wrestlers have taken up the mantle of being professional pranksters, playing jokes on their colleagues.
Guys like Owen Hart and Curt Hennig were experts at this and most of their ribs were treated with good humour by the rest of the wrestlers.
However, there are a few pranks that crossed the line — either the victim was needlessly harrassed more than he should have been or the victim got so angry that he wanted to engage in a physical confrontation with the prankster.
So, with that being said, here are five instances of pranks which weren't by the victim.
#1 Al Snow gives out Val Venis' Phone number on TV
1999 saw an angle involving Al Snow, The Big Bossman and Snow's dog, Pepper, on WWE TV. The Bossman had kayfabe kidnapped Pepper and Snow was frantically searching for the pooch.
Snow appealed on national TV for anyone who had knowledge of Pepper's whereabouts to contact him and displayed a flier on RAW with a phone number, which coincidentally belonged to Val Venis.
Venis had no idea of the prank but he suspected that something was off when he began to receive a lot of missed calls and messages on his mobile. Venis attended a few calls and all of them seemed to have information about a dog named Pepper.
Venis was mad at Snow and confronted him but eventually decided to get a new phone number.
