Wrestling sites and social media were buzzing yesterday as Paige became the latest victim of getting hacked.
Several photos and videos emerged of Paige in a sexual way. Paige isn’t the first person from WWE to find themselves in a sticky situation. Here are some other scandals that rocked WWE. On TV, Jerry Lawler seems like a funny guy who has an obsession with women younger than him. Looking at his past girlfriends and wives, this trend seems to true. A 15 year old girl accused Lawler of raping her in the fall of 1993. The charges were dropped after the girl admitted to fabricating some of the facts. Still, Lawler’s desire for someone decades younger hasn’t helped his image with the public. There was no secret that Hulk Hogan had a sex tape with Bubba the Love Sponge’s wife, Heather Clem. Most people figured Hogan didn’t want the world to see his python, but it had more to do with a few select comments. Hogan states how he’s racist and wasn’t a fan of his daughter dating a black person. The man known for helping WWE become a major draw was quickly blacklisted by the company, though there are rumblings that he could be back as soon as WrestleMania. In 1994, Vince McMahon was getting ready to do battle with WCW and the United States Government. The boss of WWE was accused of distributing steroids to wrestlers. Hulk Hogan saved Vince from losing the trial thanks to his testimony. With Vince acquitted of all charges, he went back to running his billion dollar company and hasn’t looked back. In a single weekend, Chris Benoit almost collapsed the wrestling business and he certainly changed the way it now operates. Almost 10 years later and the story remains murky. The main conclusion is Benoit killed his wife on one day and then his son the following day. Benoit ended the tragedy by taking his own life. The exact reasons remain a mystery, and that’s how one of the greatest wrestling careers ended. Something to take away from these actions is the danger of steroids and concussions. Like Paige, Seth Rollins found himself in trouble because of some pictures that were uploaded on the internet. Rollins was already holding Money in the Bank when his then fiancé blasted the future champion by uploading some nude selfies due to him cheating while on the road. In the end, Rollins wasn’t punished and a few months later he would start a lengthy WWE Championship run.
