There are conspiracy theories anywhere and everywhere we look, so it should be no surprise that conspiracy theories also exist within the world of professional wrestling. Most of the time, the fans of wrestling don’t know (and aren't supposed to know) what exactly happens backstage. Back before the days of the internet, it was easy for fans to think that everything that happened in the arena was real. But due to the rise of the internet and social media, conspiracy theories about professional wrestling exploded everywhere.
Now of course, this isn't exactly a good thing. All it takes is for one person to claim something, for it to gain popularity, and then people start believing it to be true. The truth is that most of these conspiracy theories aren't true at all; even though some of them run very deep, and others make perfect sense, that it would be easy to believe they couldn't be true. Even though most, if not all, of these conspiracy theories are not true and completely fabricated, wrestling fans have still had a lot of fun debating them. Some of these conspiracy theories sure are fun, but others are just gloomy and disheartening. Many of these conspiracy theories have evolved into urban legends, despite having very little factual basis, hardly any real evidence and vague beginnings. Unfortunately, not even WWE has proven to be fortified enough to withstand the onslaught of these urban legends.
The following is a list of the top ten most unbelievable WWE conspiracy theories of all time. They have caused the most intense debates between WWE fans, that have come to be known as true, or that are just plain crazy.

Rumor has it that when The Ultimate Warrior returned to the arena at the eighth WrestleMania, it was a different guy who was hiding under the face paint.
