5 WWE Superstars Who Have Real Life Heat

10 months ago By Sports Desk

The world of professional wrestling has always been ripe with stories of on-screen rivalries transforming into off-screen tensions. With superstars living and working closely together, it’s not uncommon for personal issues to bubble up from time to time. Over the years, real-life disagreements between superstars have sometimes become as captivating as the scripted storylines they perform.

One of the most talked-about issues in recent WWE history involves Riddle and Seth Rollins. The tension between them ignited when Riddle’s wife, Lisa, an accomplished gymnast and former contender on Steve Austin’s reality show, made derogatory comments about Becky Lynch, Rollins’ partner, on social media. Though Riddle publicly expressed his disagreement with his wife’s comments and later apologized to Rollins, it took a while for the dust to settle. Riddle’s attempt to mend fences after Survivor Series 2020 seemed to have eased things, with Rollins acknowledging the sincerity of Riddle’s apology.

Another backstage issue that made headlines was the conflict between AJ Styles and Paul Heyman. The friction between these two stalwarts centered on the sudden releases of Styles’ close friends, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, in April 2020. Many, including Styles, attributed their departures to Heyman, who was the RAW Executive Director at the time. Styles’ aversion to Heyman led to his request to shift from RAW to SmackDown. This animosity was subtly referenced during their interactions, especially during their time on “Talking Smack.”

In the women’s division, whispers of a real-life feud between Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks have persisted. Stemming from their NXT days, Banks once allegedly caused Bliss a bloody nose during a match. Their real-life tension seemed to come to the fore on several occasions, such as Banks questioning Bliss’s knowledge about wrestling history and their subsequent social media spats.

The storied rivalry between Kofi Kingston and Randy Orton also had roots in a real-life disagreement. Stemming from a match in 2010 where Kingston failed to play his part correctly during a segment with Orton, leading to Orton’s visible frustration and the now-infamous “Stupid! Stupid!” outcry. Despite this rocky patch, Kingston and Orton have since buried the hatchet, with Kingston publicly expressing his admiration for Orton’s career.

But perhaps one of the most-discussed backstage disagreements of recent times is between former best friends Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair. Once inseparable, their friendship has seemingly deteriorated in the past few years. The tension between them became especially palpable during a title exchange segment on WWE SmackDown, leading to rumors of a backstage confrontation. Lynch’s subsequent comments on a podcast further fueled speculations about their soured relationship.

In an industry where lines between reality and storyline often blur, these instances serve as a reminder of the real human emotions at play behind the scenes. Whether these disagreements get resolved or continue to affect relationships, they undoubtedly add another layer of intrigue to the world of WWE.
