10 WWE Conspiracy Theories

ConspiracyBannerThe WWE as a company, is rich in history. From its iconic rise to fame in the ‘80s with superstars like Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, and The “Macho Man” Randy Savage, to its revival in the early 2000s during the “Attitude Era” with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Undertaker, and The Rock, the company has certainly enjoyed some significant highs and lows over the years.

Fans have gotten used to picking away at WWE programs, dissecting their storylines, and making predictions about the future – as such, they tend to not always take any story that deals with the “real life” operations of the WWE at face value.

Just like in politics, there are a number of conspiracy theories that have arisen out of the WWE. Below are the top 10:

10. Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon Were ‘Friends With Benefits’

Seems quite unlikely, but still, this WWE conspiracy theory stems from former WWE talent. First off, Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels were (and probably still are) pretty good friends. Michaels would spend an exorbitant amount of time in McMahon’s office during the ‘90s, probably trying to sway him with storylines; and McMahon always seemed to approve of HBK’s angles. Makes sense, since Michaels was carrying the company significantly at the time.

Here’s where this conspiracy theory gets a little sticky. Most fans know, HBK had two retirements from wrestling: one in 1998, because of a back injury, and one final one in 2010. Due to his back, Michaels retired early in ’98, and still made television appearances here and there, until he officially returned to the ring in 2002.

While it makes sense that he took some time off and healed after surgery, what doesn’t make sense is the fact that the injury was deemed “crippling” at the time, and Michaels was still getting paid by the WWE during his entire absence; thus the reason for the theory that Michaels and McMahon were in a romantic relationship.

    #9 Punk Pipebomb – there’s no theorising here. It’s well documented that it was a worked shoot. They gave him a mic and said, go out there and say what you want and we’ll cut you off if we don’t like it. And that’s what happened. As soon as Punk started to allude to Vince being a bully they cut him off.
