Betrayals, love triangles, broken hearts, and I'm not just talking about on screen. With the very nature of being a pro wrestler comes a schedule that's not only hard on you physically, but also emotionally. Affairs are sadly very common place in the realm of pro wrestling. WWE forever attempting to blur the lines between what's real and what's not have even taken it upon themselves to take a Superstar's real life emotional turmoil and parade it on television for all to see, as you'll read later on in this article.
This list isn't exclusive to those who have been caught with their pants down in the arms of another however. A few of the entries ahead will include those who have quite literally been caught with no pants on at all and had the photo evidence to prove it leaked all over the internet. So without further ado, let's get started.
He had an incredible look and clearly once Vince McMahon caught wind of such a specimen being under his employ he had to push him to the moon. In all fairness it worked out pretty well for both WWE and Batista. However it was some extra curricula activities that landed The Animal in some hot water. Although his in ring career was seeing him win World Championships, behind the scenes Batista got a little too close with fellow WWE Superstar, Melina.
Allegedly the two of them hooked up and had an affair with each other while Batista was still married to his then wife. Needless to say the marriage didn't last long after that following his wife discovering Dave's dirty secret. She graced WWE television and would spark a trend of women similar to her being hired by the company for years to come.
While her time following wrestling has seen Sytch involved in a lot of controversial and troubling acts, while she was still under the WWE banner as Sunny is when she was at the heart of her biggest controversy. Chris would try to deny that the allegations against his girlfriend were false but alas, they did turn out to be true. Sometimes Superstars are caught with their pants down while not necessarily being unfaithful to their other half, something Charlotte Flair demonstrated earlier this year.
Unfortunately for Charlotte the four time Women's Champion was yet another victim in the latest spate of celebrities' private photos being leaked. Flair was caught out with more than just her pants down and sadly for her the private pictures leaked showed her with nothing on at all. With all the hacking and all the leaks Superstars and famous people in general will need to be a lot more careful with the photos they take and the ones they choose to keep on their phones and The Cloud.
Terri Runnels began life in WWE as a valet to her real life husband at the time Goldust, hence the surname since the man behind the paint is called Dustin Runnels. While the two were married however Terri would wind up forming a relationship with their co-worker and fellow in-ring performer Shawn Stasiak. By all accounts Goldust is a pretty nice guy according to the majority of his peers, and the realization that his wife had betrayed him and would be leaving him really hit hard.
Dustin was already battling a lot of personal demons during the early years of his career and this would have only piled on to everything else he was attempting to deal with. It's a topic that doesn't get talked about often as there was allegedly some overlap between the two relationships.
The Game was actually paired with Stephanie for story line purposes and, as is often the case, working together so closely led to the two becoming close in other ways. Eventually Triple H would leave Chyna, marry Stephanie, and of course the rest is history. The messy nature of the alleged overlap led to Chyna pointing fingers and generally getting quite upset, understandably. Not long after that the former Intercontinental Champion was no longer with the company.
They have both had terrific careers and almost have the same amount of World Championships at this point. One area that Flair is miles ahead of The Game in is divorces and promiscuity. While Hunter is accused of being unfaithful to Chyna, Ric has openly admitted that he would play around during his prime, and beyond his prime in fact. It would probably explain why The Nature Boy has been married and divorced an impressive four times. He is actually now engaged to be married for a fifth time.
Let's hope Flair has calmed down a bit and that it's fifth time lucky for Naitch, or rather for his soon-to-be bride. Before Nikki managed to pin down Big Match John, the sixteen time World Champion had quite a complicated romantic past. The reason Cena was so reluctant to get engaged to Bella in the first place is because John has been married before, and it came to a sticky end. If all this is true, it gets worse. Not only was Cena married, but Mickie was also in a relationship.
At the time of the apparent affair James was engaged to Kenny Dykstra, otherwise known as Kenny from the Spirit Squad. Needless to say the whole thing seemed to cause a pretty big mess.
