Top 15 Wrestlers Who Screwed Themselves

Nobody likes getting screwed over by their employer. Nobody. But, sometimes all you have to do is look in the mirror and realize that maybe they aren't the ones who are solely to blame. The business of sports entertainment is a cutthroat industry and it never works out perfectly for absolutely everyone. These wrestlers on this list are only a handful of examples who could have made much better choices than the ones they made, like drug abuse, alcohol related arrests, breaking kayfabe on Twitter, or even subtle acts of genuine chivalry (you know who I'm talking about).

This list is also going to show a lot of the dark side of professional wrestling. Many of these names aren't going to shock you as their stories are pretty well known by now, but needless to say that they simply screwed themselves with their poor choices at the time. Others made the list simply by happenstance and went on to continue having tremendous careers well after the fact. One wrestler in particular was even blacklisted for about 20 years over a poor choice they made...

WWE is certainly not the easiest company in the world to break into and these people know that best. Most of the wrestlers featured on this list were/are pretty prominent names, too, so it just goes to show that everyone makes mistakes. It's how you deal with those mistakes that matters the most. We hope you enjoy our top 15 wrestlers who made mistakes while on their professional wrestling journey!

Bret screwed Bret. You've heard that line a thousand times before, I'm sure. But enough time has passed to let the dust settle, so let's take a look at some questions that surround the infamous Montreal Screwjob. Was Bret right in refusing to put over Shawn on Canadian soil? Did Vince step over the line when he ordered to ring the bell? If you answered "no," and "well, it's Vince, so probably," then let's take a closer look. I don't think you can argue against Bret leaving WWE for WCW's paycheck at the time, but he definitely forced Vince -- by any means necessary -- to make sure that another wrestler didn't leave his company with his belt and his pride out on the line. WWE gave Bret every chance to agree on an ending that worked for both sides, but at the end of the day Bret chose his ego over the business, which is why he takes the number one slot on our list. Bret definitely screwed Bret, and it's even more apparent when you hear what other wrestlers have to say regarding their true feelings on the Hitman.
