WWE: Bizarre real-life stories of WWE wrestlers
Over the years, WWE has thrilled us, entertained us with various on-screen characters. Some of them were lovable characters, fan favourites. Then, there were some who were on the wrong end of our rants and chants. That is not where it ends though, there were some who shocked us, in a pleasant way or the other.
So, this characterization is something in which WWE has put in a lot of thoughts over the years.
However, everything is not as it seems. WWE has, more often than not, fooled us with characterization. Sometimes, they have picked up pointers from the a wrestler’s real life to make a gimmick, and other times, they have outright lied to us about the same.
In this article, we look at the real life stories of eight wrestlers, which may or may not have been accounted in the wrestler’s on-screen character. Nonetheless, these stories are bound to shock you.
Big Boss Man
For all the lies WWE has told us through their characterization and storylines, this one was actually not.
Big Boss Man, or Ray Traylor, was in reality a correctional officer in Cobb County, Georgia. When he told you that he dealt with prisoners all his life, he was not lying. He did really spent years working at a prison in Georgia.
This was possibly the only gimmick that WWE did not have the need to put much thought into as they were provided with a full-fledged script of the same when they hired the big man.
