Wrestlers can be very intense individuals. They will often spend countless days on the road away from their families earning a living. Time away from their personal life can lead to emotions that run high. For so many wrestlers, committing their lives to their craft means that what they do in the ring, how they are perceived by their peers and the public perception of them is often everything. The importance of perception, both in ring and as a character, often will lead to confrontations with one another. A number of incidents between wrestlers have come to a head, and legitimate fists were thrown.
Emotions can be intensified when wrestlers are faced with constant ribbing, or jokes that are offensive. Other times, wrestlers will stand up for one another and confront others in order for those issues to be resolved. It's a competitive field where achieving success and maintaining character is important. While some incidents stem from issues between wrestlers that were never resolved, other ones end up reaching a resolution and the issue dissolves. Some wrestlers are notorious for having issues with other wrestlers, while others never forget an incident that happened years earlier and appear to seek retribution. While some listed here may surprise fans, other ones may have been understandable seeing as they involve repeat culprits. Here are 15 Backstage Fights You Probably Didn't Hear About.

1 Nasty Boys and Ken Shamrock
This particular feud took place prior to Ken Shamrock's time with the UFC. All three men were appearing on the independent circuit in North and South Carolina, and an incident occurred in a bar. Shamrock has stated that both Brian Knobbs and Jerry Saggs made an inappropriate gesture to his friend's fiancé. Shamrock told both men off , but the confrontation didn't end there as Shamrock knew where both men were staying and confronted them in Saggs' hotel room. Knobbs hit him from behind with a steel phone or lamp post, and both Saggs and Knobbs beat the hell out of him. Apparently they wanted to toss Shamrock over the hotel balcony, but other wrestlers intervened. The incident must have garnered a lot of attention to spawn a reaction from others in the hotel since the scuffle was taking place in one particular hotel room. Eventually things cooled down.
