In any locker room, on any team, there are going to be athletes that don't like each other. Just because you wear the same uniform doesn't automatically mean you are going to be BFFs. But regardless, if you want to win, you want to win you still need to go out on the field, court, pitch, etc and play together. And the same is true for wrestlers in the WWE.
The history of the WWE is littered with stories of wrestlers not liking each other and various locker room factions, etc. But once they get out there into the squared circle, they have to work together—even if they aren't happy about it. With that in mind, here are five WWE Superstars that other wrestlers hate to work with:
There are different reasons why wrestlers might hat working with other wrestlers. It could be because this particular wrestler isn't very good at what he does and is, therefore, a danger to anyone he works with. Or it could be, as is the case with Enzo Amore, most wrestlers just HATE him.
Amore has had backstage heat for a while now. About four to five months ago there was an incident on a tour bus that lead to multiple wrestlers being angry with him and Roman Reigns even kicking him off the WWE tour bus. Which in turn lead to Amore being barred from dressing in the locker room with the other Superstars.
A few months back on an episode of WWE's Bring It To The Table, both JBL and Corey Graves confirmed Amore's heat with the rest of the locker room. JBL said that there has been a problem with Amore "and the rest of the world." And Graves confirmed that even he didn't like the guy.
"No! No I don’t like Enzo. He’s a fine guy, but… again, the guy you see on Monday nights, is that guy 24 hours a day. There’s no off switch. It rubs people the wrong way. If you’re on a European tour 12 days deep, and he’s going on and on and on about how he partied with The Weeknd in LA, you’re gonna get tired of hearing about it. There’s a limit, and when you’re on the road that much, that’ll wear on your nerves."
Brock Lesnar is a guy that can cause a bump in the ratings just by announcing that he will be appearing on an episode of WWE Raw or SmackDown Live. The man is a physical anomaly and a true powerhouse. But he would also be the first to admit that he is there to wrestle, to make his money and to go home. He isn't there to make friends and be liked by everyone - and he definitely isn't!
While Jim Ross has said that he and Lesnar have a strong personal relationship. He has also said that Brock is "hard-headed." Dean Ambrose has gone even further, and talked directly about how bad it was to work with The Beast at WWE's WrestleMania 32.
On an episode of The Stone Cold Podcast, Ambrose talked about how Lesnar turned down all of his ideas for their hardcore match at 'Mania (which ended up being a dud). And also said that he didn't like working with Lesnar because he only cares about making himself look good.
Injuries are going to happen in wrestling. As much as the wrestlers try to take precautions and work together so as not to get hurt, things happen. However, when a wrestler hurts another wrestler on purpose that is very, very wrong!
During a match at the AAA TripleMania XXV event in Mexico City back in August, wrestler Sexy Star—who you probably know from Lucha Underground—was in a four-way championship match. And it was reported at the time by PWInsider that Star and one of her opponents Lady Shani were legit shooting on each other, going off script and trying to hurt each other.
Sexy Star got angry and ended up taking her anger out on another wrestler in the ring, Rosemary from GFW. Star got an armbar hold on Rosemary and didn't let go even when the match was over—which is a very big no-no in wrestling as well as in all combat sports really.
Not only were her opponents angry, but GFW boss Jeff Jarrett was super pissed as well. Sexy Star is obviously not going to be on many wrestler's 'want-to-work-with' list after pulling a move like that.
To make matters worse, she was accused of doing something similar again, however, this incident saw her stomp an opponent in the corner, with her kicks actually connecting.
WWE fans love him and we're sure his Shield brothers like working with him, but there are more than a few wrestlers who would probably rather not get in the ring with Rollins given his reputation for injuring his opponents.
Most recently, there was his turnbuckle bomb of Finn Balor that led to him being out of commission for months and having to vacate the inaugural WWE Universal title that he won that same night.
Prior to that, there was the time he busted John Cena's nose which put John on the shelve for a little bit. And many people have argued that Seth's brutal style—and a couple turnbuckle power bombs—led to Sting having to retire.
Goldberg had one of the greatest pushes in the history of wrestling with his incredible WCW winning streak. But, the guy was still pretty raw when it came to actual wrestling ability—though he did get better.
Obviously, there was Starrcade '99 when he kicked Bret Hart and basically ended Hart's career with the bottom of his boot. But that's not all, and many wrestlers over the years have complained about Goldberg causing damage in the ring and going to far with less-than-precise ring work.
