WWE has given the wrestlers a platform, which they could never have dreamt of. Back in the 90s WWE, formerly known as WWF, was considered the hub of drugs and excessive violence. Over the course of time, WWE has converted itself into a place, which is safe for wrestlers. It has also renovated its image in the public, from the centre of obscenity to an entertainment show. It has added certain in-house wellness policies which require strict compliance and any deviation from them attracts disciplinary action. Although WWE has developed itself, there are certain wrestlers who were made victims to some serious crimes, 5 such superstars are:-
1. Roddy Piper
The man performed to the top of his potential always. He was always at his a-game and was pivotal in getting Hulk Hogan over with the fans. Back in the day, when technology was scarce, people didn’t have much knowledge about how things work in WWE. Due to lack of knowledge, Piper had to face the real heat of people off the ring. Heat word is certainly undermining the fact that he was stabbed thrice by people due to his on-screen gimmicks. The last time he was stabbed, the knife just missed his heart by an inch. He, unfortunately, died in a tragic incident which otherwise would have been caused by the people. May the legend forever live in peace.
2. Jamie Noble
He was the infamous half of the J&J security, who also accompanied Seth Rollins and helped him defend him WWE championship time and time again. The 40 year was attacked by a person on road accusing the former of reckless driving. Initially, there was only 1 man and he was not all listening to Noble. When things got out of hand, Noble had to bring him down. This brought 2 more men to attack Noble. 1 man brought the knife with him and with 1 swing of the knife he ruptured the lungs of Noble. The second swing just missed the neck. However, the fight was stopped when Noble’s girlfriend came out of the house and started screaming. Till date, the 3 animals haven’t been recognized and are out.
The former Diva’s champion was recently a victim of her social Media account being hacked. The hackers leaked her videos of having intercourse with boyfriend Brian Maddox and the prominent member of the New Day, Xavier Woods. Before the videos could be brought down, it was all over the internet and everyone got their hands on the tape. This incident nearly cost Paige her WWE career. With all the public shaming going on, it would have been really humiliating for her. We hope that she comes out of the trauma all strong and continues her WWE career.
4. Perry Saturn
Perry was hard working wrestler of his time. He was never given his due appreciation and was always underrated. The story of his fall from his prime is really heartbreaking. All this started when he stopped 2 men, who were trying to rape a girl. In the unfortunate incident, he got shot once in the shoulder and once on his neck. Post incident trauma, he became a meth addict and this caused her wife to leave him. He was left homeless twice. Earlier this year, he started a campaign go fund me to get himself back on feet through public donations.
5. Wade Barrett
He is one of the former employees of WWE and one of the most underutilized wrestlers. He was touted to be the WWE champion but eventually became a jobber in the WWE. Back in the day, Wade was one of the bare-knuckle fighters in the Europe and elsewhere. In one such fight, Barrett had won 20k from his opponent. His opponent attacked his after the match to get his lost back but was unable to do. Although, his opponent did manage to give him a scar, extending from his back to right triceps.
