Explaining the WWE Wrestler's Court and Ten Popular Cases from it
The legend of Wrestler's Court largely remains a mystery and extremely tight lipped with the exception of stories told over time.
Over the years, fans may have heard about a backstage event called Wrestler’s Court. Wrestler’s Court is a story that is made of legend, it is that secretive. However, Wrestler’s Court has been talked about in interviews and books over time. There’s ones where it is a “he said, she said” situation. Unless you take the time to listen or to read, you may be unfamiliar with the event.
A little history on Wrestler’s Court – it was created by Dutch Mantell (Zeb Colter for the younger folk) years ago after the murder of Bruiser Brody. Mantell was at the stadium the night it happened. The murder came from a disagreement he had with wrestler Jose Gonzalez. For Mantell, Wrestler’s Court was good way for talent to hash things out with one another so it doesn’t get to that point. The downside to that was usually it wasn’t just the quarreling parties and a middle person to sort it out. Usually the entire locker room was there for the sessions. Talk about awkward and embarrassing, though it was a light way of squashing beef, if you will. Many times the punishment was light; the guilty party usually bought free alcohol and food. Others didn’t get so lucky in their sentence, so to speak.
Keep in mind this is more of a hearsay gossip topic, being many of these stories have been either unconfirmed or glossed over. There aren’t any fairly recent stories either, so whether Wrestler’s Court has been discontinued or kept quiet, we don’t know. While there aren’t many cases that have went public, here are some cases that you should definitely know about.
