15 Wrestlers That Were Alleged ‘Love’ Addicts

Wrestling

Intercourse can be a fun, intimate time between two people in love – or two drunk strangers – when kept in check. But when you find yourself waking up naked all too frequently in strange places, then it might be an issue. The WWE is a high-testosterone (and estrogen) traveling workplace where athletes spend countless hours with each other on the road. While we can’t discount that many current and former WWE wrestlers have had experiences like the one above, there’s certain to be plenty of sexual tension.

Despite the WWE turning the idea of sex addiction into a running joke with Mark Henry’s Sexual Chocolate persona in the Attitude Era, the disease has affected numerous WWE Superstars – at least that we know of. No, we can’t confirm that any of the wrestlers on this list slept with Mae Young, but for some sex addiction cost them their careers (or created one if you’re current-day gigolo Buff Bagwell).

The list below examines 15 current and former wrestlers, Divas, and on-screen executives who have either admitted to struggling with sex addiction or have been the subject of numerous sex scandals and rumors.

15. Batista

Arguably the most known case of sex addiction in the WWE, Batista went into details on his tough upbringing and his battle with sex addiction during a 2008 interview with Australia’s The Herald and Weekly Times. After divorcing his wife with whom he had two daughters, Batista said he took advantage of the numerous women throwing themselves at him.

The six-time World Champion and box office star said he used women as a means of staying clear of drugs and alcohol. However, his behavior ultimately hurt the ones he loved and he has since banished the lifestyle to spend more time with his children. The tragic irony in the whole situation is that Batista noted he didn’t view his sexual habits as a problem until Chris Benoit showed him the evil of his ways.

14. Pat Patterson & Terry Garvin

In the early 90s, a scandal of new sorts rocked the WWE. The company had become familiar with sex-based rumors and hearsay, but the allegations against Hall of Famer Pat Patterson and former executive Terry Garvin weren’t the ones Vince McMahon was used to dealing with.

Former wrestler Barry Orton used to claim that Garvin would harass him on road trips, constantly asking for oral sex. While employed in the WWE, Garvin was known for using his influence to sleep with younger ring attendants. The allegations came to light when Tom Cole, a former ring announcer, lost his job after refusing Garvin’s advances. Vince was forced to defend the company in the national media, even appearing on CNN’s Larry King Live. Both Garvin and Patterson were openly gay wrestlers. Garvin was eventually let go by the company, but Patterson was hired back after Orton confessed he never saw him do anything malicious.

13. Sunny

Sunny, real name Tammy Lynn Sytch, was one of the few on-screen women employed by the WWE in the mid-90s. Because of that, she was the belle of the ball, hooking up with numerous Superstars backstage, despite being linked to Chris Candido (the Skip to her Sunny). She was rumored to have hooked up with Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Sabu, and several others. Kevin Nash said it best: I don’t remember being hard on [Candido]… probably because his girlfriend was sleeping with everyone in the territory and he was acting like he didn’t know what was going on… walking around like a dumb stooge.

Her intercourse drive hasn’t died down – or at least her desire to get paid. The 44-year-old worked private Skype shows which apparently weren’t well received by customers. Though it didn’t stop her from recently starring in the adult industry, Sunny Side Up: In Through the Backdoor.

12. Shawn Michaels

On screen, Shawn Michaels played The Heartbreak Kid. The long-haired, I’m just a sexy boy, I’m not your boy toy Superstar was perfect for the gimmick, so much so that he essentially lived it. Considered an egomaniac by many of the wrestlers he worked with during the 90s, Michaels mix of drugs and women made him a controversial figure in the WWE locker room.

We know his sexual relationship with the aforementioned Sunny caused issues backstage, particularly with her boyfriend Chris Candido, who, according to Bam Bam Bigelow, was suicidal at the time. Michaels has been linked to other women in the company and outside of it, causing a divorce from his then-wife Theresa Lynn Wood. He was also accused by Bret Hart of having a relationship with Vince McMahon, but Hart had a strong motive for spreading such rumors. Today, Michaels is a Born Again Christian and has turned the page from that dark chapter in his life.

11. Kurt Angle

Kurt Angle didn’t play along during a fun interview with BBC Newsbeat in 2015. Asked whether he preferred sex or chocolate, the Olympic gold medalist answered without hesitation: Sex. You should see my wife. He married Giovanna Yannotti in 2012 and we think she’s more than worthy of being faithful to, but that apparently wasn’t the case with Angle’s first wife.

Angle was married to his ex-wife Karen from 1998-2008, but a reported backstage affair with Dawn Marie caused a rift in their relationship that couldn’t be fixed (Karen later married Jeff Jarrett). The former ECW and WWE valet admitted to the affair, which lasted at least a year according to a 2008 interview. What doesn’t help Angle’s case is the sex stalker gimmick he portrayed following WrestleMania 21, where he desired perverted intercourse with gutter sl***, namely Booker T’s wife Sharmell. The gimmick kind of stuck. Angle played a sex-crazed serial killer in the awful film End Game.
