When it comes to professional wrestling, it certainly takes all kinds. At the end of the day, pro wrestlers are human just like the rest of us, and the majority of them have their own flaws and things they may not be so proud of. Whether you're "The Immortal" Hulk Hogan or a no-name jobber performing on the Indies, everyone involved in the business has their own set of issues or other things that most of us would consider to be embarrassing.
This world we live in definitely consists of some rather "weird" or creepy people, and older folk are no exception to this rule. Yes, perhaps the majority of older men and women are wiser and more mature than the rest of us considering they've been "around the block" a few times, but that doesn't take away from the fact that older folk (especially men) can sometimes come across as rather creepy.
This list consists of 15 times older wrestlers were creepy AF, and just as a little side note, names such as Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan certainly make up a large percentage of the list. Whether it was kayfabe wrestling moments that were scripted or personal creepy moments captured for all to see, all of them definitely give off a very strange and creepy vibe. If you're ready, stay tuned, as this list divulges 15 pictures that showcased moments when older wrestlers were creepy AF.
16 15. Ric Flair Kissing Becky Lynch
This picture captures the moment when legendary 16-time World Champion Ric Flair creepily kissed Becky Lynch live at the 2016 Royal Rumble pay-per-view event, during Becky's match-up with Ric's daughter Charlotte. Although this was definitely apart of the script considering it was meant as a distraction, that doesn't hide the fact that it was downright creepy (and not to mention cringe worthy).
Ric Flair certainly hasn't changed over the years, as he's still very much interested in attractive women. Of course this was scripted (otherwise Becky Lynch surely would've given Flair a much harder slap), but it surely seemed like Ric enjoyed every second of it considering his lively "woo" afterwards. For some, age doesn't change anything but ones outside appearance, and in Ric Flair's case, this is definitely true.
14 Hulk Hogan Getting Personal With His Daughter
This picture showcases Hulk Hogan rubbing his daughter's "booty" in the creepiest possible fashion. Hulk Hogan's wife Jennifer McDaniel was sitting right next to Hulk's daughter, so it really makes no sense why Hulk Hogan would be "getting up close and personal" with his own daughter. Something's definitely fishy when it comes to Hulk Hogan's family, and this creepy picture is absolutely no exception.
Hulk Hogan has definitely been a controversial man the last couple of years, so I suppose it seems fitting that "The Immortal" one would find himself amidst the media's eye for this creepy and weird Hogan family picture. It's kind of ironic that Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan make up a large percentage of this list consisting of times older wrestlers were creepy AF, because they were both "close" to each other back in the day considering Vince made Hulk a huge name, and Hogan "put the WWE on the map" so to speak. They're obviously more similar than they are different, that's for sure!
13 Ric Flair Kissing Stephanie McMahon
Here we have a shocking photo of "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair smooching Vince's daughter, Stephanie McMahon. Though the kiss doesn't look like it was a "huge deal" considering Stephanie didn't look too shocked or anything, though Stephanie surely didn't look to be nearly as into the kiss as Ric was. Flair was definitely a "playboy," as he was always stylin' and profilin' with very attractive women during the height of his professional wrestling career.
As his signature line implied, Ric certainly was (and still is) a kiss-stealing son of a gun, and Stephanie McMahon happened to be the lady who Flair stole a kiss from in this somewhat creepy shot. Though Ric Flair is by far one of the all-time wrestling greats, that doesn't take away from the fact that he can sometimes be far too up-front with his relatively questionable antics, and randomly kissing much younger women gives off a pretty creepy vibe. Sorry Ric, but you can't stay young and handsome forever!
12 Hulk Hogan Starring At Brooke's "Assets"
Here we have yet another extremely creepy picture of Hulk Hogan and his daughter, Brooke Hogan. This photo showcases Hulk taking a "peak" at Brooke's booty, and yes, it is downright creepy (especially considering Hogan's wife is walking right beside him). It's not hard to argue that Brooke looked positively beautiful in this picture, but when those "peak a boos" are coming from your own father, there's no two ways around the fact that it's totally creepy.
It's quite funny that Hulk was wearing a cross around his neck here, because all mighty God certainly wouldn't have been approving of Hogan's questionable antics, that's for sure! However, Brooke Hogan has come to the aid of her father on countless occasions in defense of Hulk's head-scratching (and creepy) behavior, so it seems like the two have a good relationship regardless. What I find mind boggling is the fact that Hulk's wife was completely oblivious to Hogan's creepy antics in two photos so far on this list!
11 Vince McMahon Making Out With Candice Michelle
As we continue to work our way down this list of occasions when older wrestlers were creepy AF, we bring you to the next list entry - the time Vincent Kennedy McMahon was robustly making out with former Women's Champion, Candice Michelle. Vince definitely admired his female performers, and the countless times he made out with various Divas showed his affection towards them I suppose? (Yeah, not creepy at all right?) Regardless, Vince has smooched with multiple Divas over the years, and he probably claims that it was all for entertainment.
However, it certainly looked like Vincent enjoyed every second of each and every one of those creepy make-out sessions, and providing fans with explicit content was probably his perfect cover-up. I'm surprised Vince's wife Linda hasn't ever acknowledged McMahon's creepy affections for his Divas (perhaps she has, just not in public that is). All that being said, the "PG Era" completely nixed any possible make-out sessions for Vince, and I'm sure that if anything about going PG pissed The Bossman off, it would certainly be that!
10 Sable And Vince Smooching
This picture showcases The Bossman Vince McMahon once again making out with one of his Divas - this time with the irresistibly attractive Sable. Now what makes these McMahon make-out segments so creepy is not because of the content itself (even though it's definitely creepy in itself), but rather Vince's strange facial expressions he made while performing these not so PG scenes. It certainly didn't look like Vince "hated" or even remotely disliked these would-be awkward make-out sessions, hence why they rank among the creepiest times older wrestlers were creepy AF.
Quite fittingly, Sable had filed a $110 million lawsuit against WWE stating that she had been exposed to forms of sexual harassment, and because she felt as though WWE provided unsafe working conditions. Long story short, Sable and WWE settled out of court for an undisclosed sum. I'm sure Sable wasn't at all a fan of these kissing scenes with her old boss on live television.
9 Vince McMahon Taking In Trish Stratus' Beauty A Little Too Much
With the shear number of times Vince McMahon was caught being creepy AF, he should really have his own separate list ranking all of his creepiest wrestling moments. This photo highlights Vince McMahon "taking in" (if you want to call it that) Trish Stratus' beauty to the point of it being totally creepy. During this cringe-worthy segment, Vince McMahon proceeded to lock lips with the young Trish Stratus, all while Vince's wife Linda watched on from a wheelchair.
I really can't fathom how Linda was okay with this whole segment, as Vince aggressively and robustly made-out with Trish right before her eyes on live television! This just goes to show you how far the McMahon family clan are willing to go to in order to provide its fanbase with shocking entertainment - because this segment was just that, shocking entertainment (though it was incredibly creepy as well to say the least). Perhaps Trish's willingness to smooch with her boss played an instrumental part in why she was given such an enormous push later on in her career.
8 Hulk Hogan Creepily Staring At His Daughter Swimming
Here we have yet another creepy Hogan family picture that captured the moment when Hulk Hogan creepily looked on at his daughter swimming in a pool with Brooke's boyfriend at the time. Hulk's daughter has surely been in relationships with many different men, though none of those said relationships seemed to have lasted very long. At one point, it looked as if Brooke would marry NFL player Phil Costa in 2013, though the couple called things off later that year. Brooke is still looking for love to this day, and it's unknown if she'll ever "find what she's looking for."
It wouldn't surprise me at all if the creepiness of the entire Hogan family scared away any potential partners for Brooke. Perhaps the creepy moments were not caught on camera like this bizarre photo of Hulk staring at Brooke and her boyfriend, and they were rather things witnessed off-camera by the would-be future husbands. Regardless, there's something quite strange and creepy about the Hogan family, and maybe it's best if we don't know exactly why that's the case.
7 Vince McMahon Making Shawn Michaels Kiss His Booty
Some of the most infamous Vince McMahon WWE segments were the creepy "kiss my a--" angles. This photo captures the moment when 'The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels was forced by Shane McMahon to kiss Vince's booty to officially join Vince McMahon's "kiss my a-- club." Prior to Shawn becoming the newest "kiss my a-- club" member, Vince McMahon was attempting to make Marty Jannetty join the club. However, Michaels would come to the rescue of his former tag team partner, though he was unfortunately attacked by Shane and was forced to join the infamous club instead.
Over the years, 6 men have become official "kiss my a-- club" members including Shawn, Hornswoggle, Shane McMahon (ironically), Jim Ross, Mick Foley and William Regal. Although these segments were absolutely hilarious, they were also extremely creepy considering McMahon wasn't at all afraid to air out his old "booty" live on television (also considering HBK was rumored to be a huge "kiss-up" with Vince behind the scenes too).
6 Vince McMahon Getting Too Personal With Torrie Wilson
As I've mentioned before, there are far too many times Vince McMahon was creepy, and he truly needs a list of his own eventually. However, I've tried to gather up the creepiest McMahon moments of them all for this list, and we now delve into this picture which showcased Vince getting up close and personal with former WWE Diva, Torrie Wilson. Now don't get me wrong, Torrie looked absolutely gorgeous in this picture so I can sort of understand why Vincent was fawning all over her - though he took it way too far here hence why it came across as totally creepy.
During this segment, Vince was just about to get "busy" with Torrie until Kurt Angle opened the door and interrupted them (thankfully). Although this was all scripted, Vince McMahon was genuinely interested in Wilson (you could just see it in his eyes) which made it so creepy. I'm sure Torrie wasn't at all pleased with having to perform these segments with her boss who was in his mid-late 50s at the time (2001).
5 Vince McMahon Smooching With His Daughter
Here we have a photo that showcases Vince McMahon getting a little too intimate with his infamous daughter, Stephanie McMahon. Now the picture doesn't highlight the father and daughter actually smooching, but it surely captures as "close as you could possibly get" to the actual thing occurring. Vince McMahon was certainly one to push the boundaries back in the day (especially during the Attitude Era), and he was willing to do nearly anything to keep his viewers engaged and watching the product.
What made this entire backstage segment so creepy is the fact that Vince and Stephanie actually kissed on the mouth just moments after this snapshot was taken. No, it wasn't a real "smoochy" gross kiss, though it was enough to shock the fans regardless. Vince McMahon has long been accused of being somewhat "creepy" with various female performers backstage, and I suppose his own daughter is no exception to this rule.
4 Jake Roberts Getting Personal With Paige
This photo showcases Jake "The Snake" Roberts getting up close and personal with his real-life friend, Paige, backstage at a WWE event of some sort. If you hadn't known the backstory, Paige has some history with Jake Roberts, as Jake had lived with Paige's family at their home for a period of time when he was appearing for their family-owned wrestling promotion, The World Association Of Wrestling in Norwich, England.
Now it's obvious that Jake and Paige are somewhat "friends" with one another, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this picture seems relatively creepy if you ask me. Paige seemed to be "overly-friendly" with many of her co-workers (if you know what I mean), so this up close and personal picture with the 62 year old Jake Roberts sends the vibe that more could've been going on between the two (similar to Paige's relationship with Razor Ramon).
3 Vince Chocking Stephanie In Creepy Kayfabe Fashion
This insanely creepy photo captures the moment when Vince McMahon kayfabe chocked out his daughter Stephanie during their infamous "I Quit" match at the No Mercy pay-per-view back in 2003. Vince McMahon obviously dominated the majority of their match-up, and the whole thing came to an end when Vince mercilessly chocked Stephanie with a lead pipe, forcing Linda McMahon to throw the towel into ring thus ending the match in Vince's favor. Following this incredibly embarrassing loss, Stephanie McMahon wasn't seen on WWE television for two years.
Of course this was all a work and Vince wasn't actually chocking out Steph for real, though Vince surely made it look as real and violent as he possibly could by making the most creepily violent and angry facial expressions possible. Once again, Vince McMahon pushing the envelope when it comes to what's acceptable entertainment and what isn't, as this is by far one of Vince's creepiest wrestling moments of all time by far.
2 Scott Hall Creepily Hugging Paige
Here we have a picture that showcases Scott Hall aka Razor Ramon creepily hugging former Divas Champion Paige backstage at WrestleMania 31 prior to making his appearance during the Triple H versus Sting match-up in which he interfered along with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash - the original nWo faction. Now from the surface, this doesn't look like a really "creepy" moment, but when you delve under the surface, you'll uncover a rather creepy history between Paige and Ramon.
On Twitter, Razor has tweeted out multiple controversial tweets regarding Paige including this one: "@RealPaigeWWE Such a naughty girl. I have a good mind to bend you over my knee and spank you." Now that you've seen a little bit of the behavior from Razor Ramon when it comes to Paige, you may start to understand why this moment was rather creepy. Yes, Paige defended Scott's creepy tweets by stating that they were just jokes, but regardless, they're still creepy to the rest of us.
1 Jerry Lawler Creepily Peaking At Paige's "Booty"
Coming in at the number one spot for a time an older wrestler was creepy AF, we have the moment when legendary color commentator Jerry "The King" Lawler was caught on live television staring at Paige's undeniably attractive booty or "set of glutes." Obviously we really can't fault Jerry for noticing Paige's booty, but it definitely came across as extremely creepy in this case. Instead of focusing in on what was going on inside the squared circle which probably would've been interesting (take a look at the lively crowd), Jerry rather decided to creepily peak at Paige's booty for all of us to see later on.
What makes this even more creepy is the fact that Jerry's already dating an attractive younger woman who most would consider to be way out of Jerry's league (she's young enough to be Lawler's daughter!) Regardless, this moment is definitely deserving of that first spot, and it's quite fitting take into account the fact that Jerry's creepily obsessed with every WWE Diva past and present.
