I am listing the top 6 real life fights between that happened between wrestlers. Comment on what you think of my choices and if I missed anything.
6. Scott Steiner vs DDP
During the final days of WCW, there was reportedly heat between the two wrestlers, due to DDP's wife, Kimberly Page, accusing Tammy Lynn Sytch of having drug paraphenalia in the locker room. Things escalated from there, with Steiner allegedly saying some unsavory things about Page's lady, which in the eyes of DDP, necessitated that he confront Big Poppa Pump himself. Prior to the altercation, Page was said to have told other wrestlers in the locker room what was coming, asking them to separate the two as quickly as they could, as DDP knew a real life fight against Steiner couldn't possibly end well for him. He was right, of course, as Steiner proceeded to wale on him for a full 10-30 seconds.
5. Arn Anderson vs. Sid Viscious
In 1993, Sid Viscious was getting a sizable push from WCW and was reportedly even scheduled to win the title belt. But, while in Blackburn, Lancashire as part of a tour of the United Kingdom, Sid got into it with Arn Anderson in a fight that ended up in Double-A's hotel room. The brawl somehow involved a pair of scissors, resulting in the two spilling blood throughout the hotel hallway before they were finally separated, sent to the hospital and subsequently deported. Sid was later fired, derailing his big World Title push.
The details surrounding this fight vary wildly across the internet, but the most realistic version has the fight beginning in a bar when Sid states that Arn has never been much of a draw. Things got a little heated, but both left the bar without any kind of serious action. Later, Sid busted into Arn's hotel room armed with some type of foreign object he used to knock his rival unconscious. Then, the sleeper awoke, grabbed a pair of scissors and rallied against his much larger opponent before 2 Cold Scorpio finally stepped in.
4. Yoshi Tatsu vs. Sheamus
I had to put a modern day brawl on here. This is another story that doesn't have any kind of legit verification, but it's just so hilarious. Keep in mind, this story is nothing more than a rumor, but personally, I like it so much that I just going to believe it's true from here on out.
So, back when Yoshi Tatsu, Sheamus and Ted DiBiase Jr. were all in WWE's Florida developmental territory, the three grapplers lived together in some type of wacky sitcom-ready situation. But all was not well in the household, as Sheamus reportedly had a problem with using other people's things without permission. One day, Tatsu and DiBiase had enough and confronted the Celtic Warrior, catching him redhanded with one of their protein mixers. Sheamus got heated and hurled the mixer at Tatsu.
Now, the story goes that on account of Tatsu's training in the New Japan Dojo and the fact that he is "very good with his hands," the Japanese wrestler caught the protein mixer in the air. Then, Tatsu allegedly stomped across the kitchen and proceeded to open up a can on Sheamus, with some reports even characterizing the beating as bad enough to elicit tears from the future WWE Champion.
3. Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon
In the moments after the Montreal Screwjob, the Molson Centre absolutely erupted with fan anger and chaos. Upon realizing that he had been double-crossed, Bret Hart immediately turned to Vince McMahon, who was sitting at ringside, and spat in the promoter's face. Once backstage, the Hitman returned to his dressing room and began to change after learning that his boss had locked himself in his office with a few of his lackeys.
At the insistence of the Undertaker (something I think many people forget), McMahon soon went to Hart's dressing room, allegedly to explain the situation. The Hitman was having none of it, however, and demanded that McMahon clear out. Things quickly escalated, with Hart laying a single punch on McMahon, one that was said to be so powerful it lifted the Chairman of the WWE up in the air, causing him to roll and sprain his ankle on the way back down.
2. Booker T vs Batista
Batista, who experienced a meteoric rise to the top of the WWE roster in a short period of time, was already unpopular backstage due to his lack of respect for those who came before him coupled with a sense of entitlement.
During a promotional photo shoot for Summerslam, Batista's bad attitude got the best of Booker T as Booker confronted the Animal about respecting his peers.
While it doesn't need to be said that the argument eventually degenerated into a brawl, what was unique about this particular fight was that the superstars who were in attendance allowed this fight to happen for at least five minutes.
According to eye witness reports, Booker T challenged Batista to "[go] into an empty room and go for it."
The two would do battle, in the form of a fist fight, with Booker T managing to gain the advantage by grounding and pounding the Animal.
Before being separated, Batista snuck in one last sucker punch on Booker just as he did immediately after Booker T closed the door to signal the start of this graphic encounter.
1. Bruno Sammartino & The Iron Sheik vs. Dave Fleming and Others
One of my favorites because Bruno wasn't even in his prime to teach respect even thought he was outnumbered. While this next brawl doesn't have wrestlers on both sides, it does have a dopey Canadian Football League player.
During the mid-1980s, legendary wrestler and hardass Bruno Sammartino was visiting backstage at a WWE event when he saw former Hamilton Tiger-Cats player Dave "Rooster" Fleming standing with five other men. Sammartino told them that they might get in trouble for standing in the restricted area, at which point Fleming held out his hand to the Italian Superman. But when Sammartino took his hand, Fleming squeezed it rather too hard and told the legend that he was "nothing but a washed up old man." Naturally, Sammartino replied, "Not too washed up to take care of you," which prompted Fleming to try his luck.
The 51-year-old Sammartino blocked his assailant's punch, and returned the favor by knocking Fleming to the ground. This led to the involvement of the other five men, however, at which point the Iron Sheik emerged from the nearby showers and leapt into the fray, helping Sammartino wipe the floor with the insolent youngsters.
