In a world that is becoming increasingly divided, there's one thing we all share: the ability to find farts hilarious. Don't kid yourself; you're flat-out lying if you claim otherwise. In fact, chances are you probably let one rip in the last half hour to the dismay of your partner,or, if you're alone, you probably followed it up with a schoolgirl giggle. You're not alone. High-profile athletes and celebrities often release air biscuits in the heat of performance.
The same is especially true when referring to wrestlers. There's only so much repeated damage to the gut that someone can take in high-pressure situations without letting out some anus applause. There are other extenuating circumstances that might cause a wrestler to let go a squeaker: he or she might be stomach sick, or they might just be an asshole. What's worse than a little taint tickle is when a fart becomes a liquid, which has happened to numerous wrestlers over the course of history. Fortunately, we're here to bring you hilarious cases of both in what might be the most important piece of journalism ever.
Enjoy the list and like always, be sure to share it with a friend. These are the 15 wrestlers that passed gas inside of the squared circle!
15 CM Punk
Well before Phil "CM Punk" Brooks made a mess of his UFC debut, the former wrestler had done so in the WWE ring, dropping a tiny nugget on live TV, which we can only assume was accompanied by a ripping fart. Facing Dean Ambrose in a match on SmackDown in 2013, Punk blew chunks in the ring, which were quickly scooped up by the working referee. It was equal parts heroic and disgusting. For his part, Punk at least had a sense of humor about it, referencing it when asked about his UFC debut: "What happens if I lose? What happens if I get embarrassed in front of the world? And then you think to yourself, 'Well, you s--t yourself on national television before so how bad can it go? How bad could it really be?'"
14 Tommy Dreamer
Tommy Dreamer is the farting Superstar the world needs. The former ECW legend is active on Twitter and has tweeted about farting on more than one occasion, including this gem:
20hrs of travel & so many airplane farts has made my underwear the real #EliminationChamber Just Saying.— Tommy Dreamer (@THETOMMYDREAMER) February 24, 2014
13 Bret Hart
You're probably expecting a Bret "The Hitman" Shart or Shartshooter joke, so we'll get those out of the way early. Now to the incident in question. The Hitman was facing Bam Bam Bigelow in the 1993 King of the Ring, a match Bam Bam called one of his best in an interview with TitleMatch. The two wrestlers went toe-to-toe in a memorable battle, but, up until he died, Bam Bam remembered it for one very special reason; the best there ever was dropping a stink bomb right in his face.
12 Steve Austin
It might be hard to believe, but the toughest S.O.B in WWE history, Stone Cold Steve Austin, once crapped himself in the ring. WHAT? I said he once crapped ... WHAT?! Enough. During a 2015 episode of his podcast, Austin ran down more than a hundred synonyms for a fart, but none of them could be used to describe what he did in the ring during a match against Yokozuna.
11 Finn Balor
NXT is a great training ground for future WWE Superstars. Unfortunately, NXT accomplishments don't carry the same weight as championships held in the WWE, but the lower profile of NXT can work as an advantage in some instances. Just ask Finn Balor, who put on a hell of a championship match against Samoa Joe at NXT TakeOver: Dallas in April 2016. In fact, the match has received recognition by many for its entertainment value, complete with Joe bleeding from the head just 30 seconds in.
10 Naomichi Marufuji
Acclaimed Japanese star and current Pro Wrestling NOAH worker Naomichi Marufuji wrestled sporadically for Ring of Honor from 2006-08 and gave the world one of the best audible farts during a match. Facing Claudio Castagnoli, Marufuji let go a mid-match cornhole tremor which could be heard plain as day.
9 Mae Young
It's not usually the case that you feel bad for the person putting someone through a table, but it works in this instance. Back in 2001 on an episode of Raw, Bubba Ray Dudley had the pleasure of powerbombing the late Mae Young off the stage and through some tables. It was an act that would likely never get the go-ahead in today's PG era, but believe it or not, it actually happened.
There has been some truly bad gimmicks in the WWE, but none are as bad as the farting gimmick Natalya Neidhart took on in 2012. It's not that we're shocked that women do indeed let loose the occasional panty burp, but that Vince and WWE creative were so adamant about pushing a fart gimmick is a little ridiculous - and that's coming from someone writing a list of the top 15 wrestlers known to fart in the ring.
7 William Regal
There's a YouTube video of a tag team match in which Lance Storm and William Regal take on Jeff Hardy and Tommy Dreamer. If you can't remember the match, don't worry, you're not alone. The most memorable thing about the brief match is the flatulent noise that can be heard as Dreamer prepares to give Regal a DDT. There's a slight chance that perhaps it was edited, but it seems believable if only because Regal looks like a guy that is constantly smelling a bad fart. Later in the video from the match, a fan yells "Regal you stink." Was he referring to his talent or his actual smell?
6 Darren Young
Darren Young is another wrestler who has been on record for soiling himself during a match. We can't say for certain that he's a noted farter, but as the old saying goes, when there's shart there's usually a fart - or something like that.
5 Andre the Giant
There's a lot of unfortunate victims in this piece. We've noted our sympathy for wrestlers like Bam Bam Bigelow and Bully Ray who had people fart directly in their face, but nobody had it worse than Bad News Brown.
4 Sycho Sid
One of the most prominent urban legends in WWE history involves the question of did he or didn't he shart himself in the ring? The perpetrator in question is Sycho Sid, who supposedly crapped himself on the biggest stage in wrestling at WrestleMania 13.
3 John Cena
During a match against Scott Steiner, fans literally couldn't see John Cena for a brief period of time. That's because Cena, dealing with a bad case of food poisoning - and presumably rectal turbulence, rump rippers, and stale wind - vacated the ring and went under to take a big, steaming dump.
2 Big Show
Big Show just might take the cake for the WWE's most violet abuser of in-ring farts. The big man was signaled out by The Miz on an episode of the Allegedly podcast as racking up the most frequent farter miles in the WWE.
Is there any surprise? For a guy who used "the stink face" as a finishing move, you had to have figured that Rikishi was a known farter. There are numerous instances which have been confirmed by Rikishi himself and other wrestlers. It's a humiliating move, but one made at least a million times worse if you receive a rump ripper directly in the mouth.
Here's the list of poor souls who took a big one for the team: Trish Stratus, Booker T, Mike Fox, Eddie Guerrero, William Regal, Lance Storm, and several others. You're probably asking yourself who received the worst stinkface and fart of all time. Apparently Rikishi's fart on Road Dogg Jesse James was "tremendous." It was also the longest stinkface he had ever given. If you listen carefully to the stinkfaces given to Regal and Booker T, you can hear the audible farts. Chances are you don't have anything better to do.
