Let’s conduct a science experiment here. We’ll take a bunch of muscled up giants, put them on the road together for 300 plus days a year, make them quasi fight each other on each of those days and see what happens. As you can imagine, this volatile mix leads to some fights in the backstage area or outside the arena which leaves wrestlers injured. These could be broken bones, concussions or sometimes a thing most devastating to a pro wrestler, a bruised ego. With that in mind, here are 10 wrestlers who were hurt in backstage altercations.

While most of the beefs can be discussed and calmed, some inevitably led to fights. Here are 10 wrestlers who were hurt in backstage altercations.
