Default Backstage stories/myths/legends in Wrestling.

The title's kinda confusing so allow to me to clearify. Anyone know any interesting backstage stories about in the WWE/WCW/TNA?

This can range from ANYTHING from guys not willing to job to anybody, matches that were supposed to happen but didn't, backstage fights, stories about Vince or the wrestlers, backstage attitudes etc.

For example, I'll start you out with a couple.

Hulk Hogan was supposed to wrestle Cena at Mania 25.
WrestleMania XXIV was supposed to be held in the Amway Arena, not the Citrus Bowl.
Cena vs. Undertaker was initially planned for Mania 26.
Booker T and Batista got into a fight backstage which Booker won, I think. (More well known, I know).
Hogan not jobbing to Michaels (another well known one)

Obviously some of the ones I listed maybe false, some may not be. However, I'm just interested in these kind of things. Random backstage stuff like that, that most fans don't really know about. So, anyone have any crazy stuff like that? It doesn't matter if you think it's false or not, just tell it on!

Chris Jericho supposedly got into a fight with Goldberg and won.

That was pretty interesting. I read about it in Jericho's book. Goldberg is actually described as a fairly nice person in real life so I'm still confused as to why he was just being a dick towards Jericho over something really stupid.

Oh ok, I haven't read Jericho's book yet. I heard him talk about it in some radio interview, but it was mainly just describing the fight and how funny it was that someone his size was kicking Goldberg's arse. What other detail is given in the book?

If you Google 'Wrestling Urban legends' or something similar you'll find tons of them on other forums. I read through them one time and they're pretty crazy. Those were the days when the guys had personality - on and off the screen. Nowadays the WWE is filled with generic, clean-cut kids who have nothing to seperate them from eachother.

no, there was one occasion were a new wrestler (forget who) was being a major asshole backstage, so undertaker held a wrestlers court, and the wrestler ended up being thrown in the showers then JBL came in and pretended he was going to rape him , then finally told him to chill out with his shit and left him alone.

this what your thinking of?

Google "Cena Hogan Mania 25". You'll get some rumours there. I think there was an interview where Hogan himself said that he was supposed to Wrestle Cena too.

As for the JBL one, I haven't heard that he EXACTLY RAPES the new guys, but just that he gave them a really harsh time and was a backstage bully. Now that I think about it, I think you actually do mean that by the word "rape".

I'm not too familiar with Wrestling Observer tbh. Plus, I don't think it's worth paying for some possibly bullshit rumours anyway. Haha

I read Jericho's book quite a while ago, so I don't remember that much. All I do know is that Jericho was playing with the crowd and making fun of Goldberg storyline wise. Goldberg was just being really unprofessional about it. Jericho kept saying stuff to further and make the feud better, but Goldberg just wouldn't listen.

His first book had his actual fight with Goldberg in WCW, and his second book is about when he feuded with him in WWE.
