Default Wrestling Pranks, Ribs, and Road Stories

Figured there were enough of these that would warrant a whole thread of its own. I love hearing a good wrestling prank, rib, or road story.

As I mentioned in the general wrestling discussion thread, Roddy Piper's book is full of amusing stories about himself and other wrestlers, including...

- Lord Alfred Hayes sneaking up behind people in the locker room and putting a certain body part of his in their hands.

- Andre the Giant standing on a hotel bed and taking a dump on the sheets as a prank for the maids. Said when Andre was finished, it looked like a horse had been in there.

Got any good stories about wrestling's great pranks, ribs, and road stories?

Owen Hart was a huge prankster from what I've read! Here's a few stories I've found online from different websites from other wrestlers:

Jim Ross: "As the head of WWE Talent once upon a time, I had to have a "sit down" with a wrestler before a live TV show I was going to broadcast about the individual's alleged drug use. I recall the rumor was that this person was allegedly using cocaine. Nonetheless the word of the meeting spread almost immediately amongst the wrestlers, imagine that (telephone, telegraph, tell a wrestler) and of course word got back to Owen. So later that day he purposely and literally ran into me in the hall way in the locker room area as I was walking with my head down looking at some notes for that night's broadcast. When our bodies collided I looked up and saw it was Owen and he had taken powdered sugar off a donut and put an ample amount of it all under his nose and his eyes were barely open as if he was severely impaired. At that exact moment I did not think it was too funny, but within seconds and after he burst out laughing I easily found the humor in his stunt and it actually allowed me to release some of the stress that I was feeling from the previous "sit down." "

- Another Owen Hart story was he once took Vince McMahon's briefcase and hid it on top of a ceiling fan. Vince was furious because he couldn't find it.

Davey Boy Smith: "We were in Virginia and there were some plain clothes police officers there and I had a water gun. I was shooting water at them and they were getting really mad. They approached me and asked who was doing it? I said Lex Luger. They said we would like to get him. I told them that he's driving the car tonight back to the hotel, why don't you try to follow us? Lex is notorious for driving through stop signs and red lights. That night he was driving real good, so I yanked the wheel out of his hands and he was like, 'What are you doing?' the police then sped up behind us in a ghost car. I told Lex it was Shawn Michaels and he was trying to race us. So, he drove faster. Now the police were getting really mad. The cops put a light on the roof and Lex says, 'Davey, it's the police.' It was me and Lex in the front and Owen in the back. I had put the water pistol in Lex's sweat pants and he didn't know it. The police pulled us over. After taking his license and registration, the police walked back toward their car. I yelled at the police, 'Blow it out your ass!' The cop turned around, immediately, walked back to our car, and told Lex to get out of the car. Lex said, 'It wasn't me. It wasn't me.' The officer looked in the back seat and asked Owen who said that? Owen sheepishly points and say it was Lex Luger. The police officer takes Lex out of the car, spreads his arms and legs, and pats him down and says, 'He's got a gun!' I go to get out of the car to tell the police that the rib has gone far enough and then Lex says, 'Please, Davey, get in the car, you are making things worse.' This wasn't far from the arena, and there were a bunch of wrestling fans and even Vince McMahon in his limo saw it all going down."

My boss actually had a story he experienced first hand. Sometime in the 90s, my boss was a part owner in a local wrestling fed. During his downtime from the WWF, they got Dustin Runnels to do a couple of small indie shows for the promotion. My boss said Dustin always had a habit of hanging out backstage before the show completely nude, and that it intimidated a lot of the other guys backstage because apparently Dustin was quite hung.

I've heard that said about Golddust on a shoot or two, I think.

Bret Hart's book is full of this kind of stuff. A must-read just for the tales on the road alone, nevermind all the other great stuff in it.

True story. Sometime in the late 80's my grandpa, and my two uncles pulled over to help some stranded motorists who had a flat tire on the side of the road in Florida. It turned out to be the Nasty Boys, who were running extremely late to a show, and did not have any tire changing tools. Grandpa helped them change their tire, and Nobbs & Skaggs were very gratefull. I heard that story a million times when I was a kid.

Grandpa was a big wrestling fan. I used to love hearing his stories of matches he watched live in the old days, one in perticular was a match he used to tell me about between Terry Funk vs Dory Funk Jr. He said it was a real bloodbath, and that they beat the living hell out of each other. The greatest wrestling match he ever seen. I wonder if video footage of that match exists somewhere. My quest begins!

I skimmed the sample pages of the autobiography of Animal from LOD at Amazon and came across a great road story. Long story short, the boys were partying at a hotel one night after a show and Mike Rotunda (aka Irwin R. Scheister) gets so plowed, that he decides to go skinny-dipping. So he climbs this mesh fence and skinny-dips. On his way back over the fence... completely naked... he accidentally slices open his dick skin. But doesn't even realize he's done it because he's so completely sloshed. So the next morning, he discovers all this blood all over his room and figures out what happened. According to Animal he "performs some minor surgery" on himself and then drives himself to the hospital.

Both hilarious and revolting. You've gotta think that all that mesh in the Tower of Doom match had to have made him a little uncomfortable after that. *shudders* I can only imagine how great the rest of the book is. I've gotta read it!

The Five Sleaziest Wrestling Stories Of All Time

Quote:
If you’ve seen The Wrestler, you’re probably aware that the world of professional wrestling is a wretched hive of scum and villainy. <<<note from Wes... Boo, that's a Star Wars reference>>>

Well, truth is always stranger than fiction, and the following five real tales of grappling depravity would make Mickey Rourke pass out in his cheerios. It’s a dirty world in the squared circle – read on and enjoy.

Bret Hart’s Pee Mouthwash

Canadian wrestling legend Stu Hart was no softie – he raised eight boys and four girls in his sprawling Calgary home and without exception, every single one of them either got into the wrestling business or married someone who did. Stu’s single-minded love of grappling often made life hard for his kids, who were raised “too poor for real pants,” according to 8th son Bret’s memoir.

Apparently, things at the Hart household were always teetering on the brink of complete anarchy, with Stu letting Terrible Ted the wrestling bear hibernate under the porch in winter and all the kids being stretched by their father in the basement dungeon. But the worst thing in the book is the tales of Bret’s older brothers Smith and Bruce, as a regular ritual, blasting hot gouts of pee into young Bret’s face in the communal showers. It burned!

Andre’s Bad News

The legendary Andre the Giant was a man with huge appetites for food, sex, and booze. He would regularly down multiple bottles of wine with dinner and feel no ill effects, but one time the good stuff got the best of him in a match with underrated grappler Bad News Allen. The pair had been working a series of matches around the horn, but Andre had started coming down with a vicious stomach virus while on tour.

A consummate professional, he continued to step into the ring and give it his all, but when it came time for Andre to deliver his trademark running butt splash in the corner, the Giant added a little accidental insult to injury. Yes, Andre’s oversized bowels let loose from the impact of the move and he released a jet of feces all over the ring. Bad News immediately made for the showers, losing the match by disqualification.

Messiah’s Thumbs

In the grand legends of truly sleazy wrestling, no company was ever as awful as Rob Black’s XPW. Black had made his fortune producing “adult entertainment” of a particularly rancid stripe, often starring his then-wife Lizzy Borden. With that money, he ran an indy promotion in the Los Angeles area that often featured adult entertainers as valets.

Well, Borden ended up getting close with XPW star Messiah, and before you know it two unidentified guys broke into Messiah’s apartment, beat him severely, smashed a fishtank over his head and cut off his thumb. Oddly enough, they didn’t steal anything, making most people in the know come to the conclusion that they were hired muscle sent by Black to pay the wrestler back for his adultery. Uh, dude, you can’t get mad when you marry a porn star and she bones other people.

Goldust’s New Rack

If you say anything about second-generation wrestler Dustin Rhodes, you should say that he’s loyal. When he signed with WWE and was given the gimmick of the ambiguously gay face-painted Goldust, most wrestlers would have balked – especially if they were the son of “The American Dream,” Dusty Rhodes. But Dustin went balls-out with the character, making Goldust one of the most memorable and effective heels of the Attitude Era.

This one goes into the seemingly endless pile of “McMahon bad ideas,” but it’s such an amazing one that we felt it deserved merit. To jazz up the Goldust character, Vince brought up the idea of Dustin going under the knife and receiving silicone breast implants to further blur the gender line. Dustin offered no protest, but it took the strong objections of a team of doctors before the WWE backed off on the idea.

Bruiser Brody Stabbing

Bruiser Brody was one of the wildest men in wrestling history, but the way he met his end was over the line, even for him. After a lifetime of wild matches all over the world, Brody travelled to Puerto Rico, home of some of the most intensely involved wrestling fans on Earth. Before a show in Bayamon, Brody was approached in the locker room by fellow wrestler Jose Huertas Gonzalez, who worked under a mask as Invader I.

Under the pretense of conducting private business, Gonzalez lured Brody into the showers, where he pulled out a concealed knife and stabbed him multiple times in the chest. Brody was rushed to the hospital but died during surgery, and through some miracle Gonzalez escaped any jail time for his cowardly assault.To add insult to injury, they had to break both of Brody’s legs to fit him into a cheap Puerto Rican casket.
