#5 Matt Hardy
In 2005 Matt Hardy found out that his longtime girlfriend Lita had been cheating on him with fellow WWE superstar Edge. The elder Hardy brother reacted like any typical guy whose girlfriend just got stolen.
Hardy publicly revealed the relationship online by posting various blogs and videos in which he had spoken out his mind about his ex-girlfriend and her new lover.
Though this is normal coming from a person who had a bad relationship, things did not go too well for Hardy as the persons he was talking about were future WWE Hall of Famers.
Hardy could've dealt with this issue personally, but he chose to make things public, and Vince McMahon didn't take that too kindly.
WWE released Hardy shortly after the incident and brought him back after some time to capitalise on the publicity and to begin a feud with Edge.
A decade later, Hardy is now happily Married to his wife Reby Sky, and the couple has two children together. He is back with the WWE, and things are going great for the elder Hardy brother.
