Being a professional wrestler is a tough job. It entails traveling to different cities every night, and being away from loved ones months at a time, so it can definitely take a toll on a person. To cope with this lifestyle, wrestlers form friendships and bonds with their fellow colleagues.
These friendships are oftentimes a replacement for family. The relationships they form are strong ones, and they might be at each other’s necks in the ring, but outside of it, some of these superstars couldn’t be closer. When retired wrestlers are asked what they miss most about the business, most stars answer: the car rides to shows. Just imagine having your best friend (or friends) in one car driving around the country doing what you love. Those are the cherished moments that leave a significant impact on a wrestler’s life.
With the gimmicks that some of these wrestlers have, it's hard to picture them being friends. Here is the 13 most bizarre real life WWE friendships. Enjoy!

This is a friendship that surprises many. However, John Cena and Michael Cole are very close outside of the ring. They used to be travel buddies in the past. Cole gave an in depth look of their friendship in an interview on the Busted Open Satellite Radio Show. Cole said, “John is the most wonderful human being on the planet. He’s one of these guys, I’ll preface this by saying he’s one of my closest friends in the business”. John is also a fan of Michael's choosing to tour the world with Cole, as opposed to any other superstar in the business. Quite the unique friendship between these two individuals.
