WWE News: 15 Wrestling Rivalries That Turned into Real-Life Hatred

Pro wrestling often features an eclectic mix of both real and staged feuds.  The real-life heat between Hogan and Warrior, and now Melina and her newest legit (?) enemy Gail Kim, is cause for a celebration of an industry that in many ways can be defined by its own pettiness. 

Given the staged nature of pro wrestling, one would think that pre-determined wins and losses don't count.  However one's own string of wins and losses, or booking, almost always decides their ultimate career path and whether or not they will one day make John Cena money. 

Booking is just one of many hot topics that have sparked real-life tension between co-workers in wrestling, with money, sex and ego all being top contenders. 

Twitter has only amplified what has already been a rich history of real life feuds that captivate the attention of the Internet crowd like a Chyna sex tape (you know you watched it). 

A while back I covered the five best real life fights in wrestling history, so consider this list somewhat of a sequel as many backstage incidents have been known to quickly degenerate into bona fide rivalries on a larger scale.
