Wrestling Matches That Became Real Fights


Like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, at a certain point in their childhood, kids start to realize wrestling isn’t as real as they though. Even when it seems as though things are getting very real in the ring, years later you find out it is all an act. After all, it took over 20 years for it to come out that the entire Andy Kaufman/Jerry Lawler was planned between them!

But sometimes, things have a way of getting out of hand. Tempers flare or people just don’t like each other, and the line stars to blur. There are really endless ways in which a planned fight can go very wrong, very fast.

Whether it’s a veteran who loses it on a rookie who wants to go off script or a battle of egos, not everything you see in wrestling is as scripted as you might think...
