Five Wrestling Feuds Based on Real Life Animosity!
Some wrestlers genuinely have dislike or hate for each other, which is certainly the case for the following wrestlers.
Even though wrestling is scripted** it is not uncommon for wrestlers to bump heads, metaphorically. Some wrestlers genuinely have dislike or hate for each other, which is certainly the case for the following wrestlers.
CM Punk and Ryback
We all know CM Punk did not like a lot of people during his stint in the WWE, but one of the people he reportedly disliked the most was Ryback. He even referred to him as the steroid guy at one point, and the mutual hatred certainly shows in some of the promos they shot together. It’s okay CM Punk, I can’t think of anyone who likes Ryback.
Sin Cara and Alberto Del Rio
One of the feuds on the list that surprised me the most was the one between Sin Cara and Alberto Del Rio. Both Sin Cara and Del Rio have a reputation for causing trouble backstage, but this dislike took on epic proportions. It even allegedly led to one of Sin Cara’s friends pulling a gun on the Pride of Mexico. Their dislike for each other was also clear in the WWE ring, where they were genuinely beating each other up! It even led to Sin Cara breaking his finger during a match!
Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage
Despite being two of the biggest stars in their day, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage did not get along. Most of the animosity would appear to have come from Savage though, who believe Hogan was having an affair with his then-wife Miss Elizabeth. Fortunately, the pair did make friends before Savage’s untimely death.
CM Punk and Triple H
Considering the reputation of CM Punk, it is no surprise he made it into this list twice. Even though his dislike for Ryback was greater, Ryback and Triple H did not get along either.
Rumors indicate that Triple H had a serious dislike for CM Punk. If rumors are to be believed, the Game had some problems with CM Punk’s persona and his wrestling style. It is also claimed the Triple H tried to sabotage CM Punk’s career. The truth about the situation? We’ll never know.
Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels
This list would not be complete without mentioning the personal tensions between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels, a rivalry that eventually led to the infamous Montreal Screw Job. It is claimed the two had a natural dislike for each other, but that everything got blown out of proportion since they both attempted to become the top guy within the company. They made up later, but the pair will never be best friends.
