Spoiler alert: Professional wrestling is predetermined and they aren't actually trying to hurt each other.
There, we got that out of the way.
Unfortunately, things do occasionally get out of hand backstage and real-life animosity leads to physical conflict. When you have competitive athletes, tempers can flare when their "spot" is threatened or when personalities don't mesh.
In any event, these conflicts usually result in great stories that have circulated amongst hardcore fans for years. I've gathered together some of the best and put together a list of some of the most infamous backstage brawls.
Note: Please remember there is no way to actually know how these conflicts happened, so please don't take these stories as complete fact.
