The Wildest Backstage Stories From Wrestlers You Will Ever Hear.
On 24th September 2017
Wrestling has always been associated with sexual connotations. Admittedly, there’s something homoerotic about watching (or performing as one of the) two oiled-up muscle-bound men rolling around in the ring for 20+ minutes. Not that we’re trying to take anything away from the athleticism or the art involved in the product, but it’s a criticism that pops up every now and again from those who aren’t as willing to accept that pro wrestling is a legitimate sport. People are more likely to equate it to a bedroom rendezvous than an actual sport. In all fairness, the stories of wrestlers “wrestling” in bed are much more extravagant than those that occur in the ring.
Professional-wrestling programming is filled with grandiose storylines, over-the-top angles, and strange characters. Believe it or not, there are stories out there involving those same wrestlers, which sound much wilder and even more over-the-top than most of the things we’ve ever seen in a wrestling ring in recent memory. Coming from a world of glitz, glam, and guts spilling everywhere, it only makes sense for wrestlers to have bedroom stories that wind up to be just as entertaining and unbelievable (in some cases, more so) as the angles that happen on WWE television or in wrestling in general. Here are a few examples of wacky bedroom stories from wacky wrestlers.
Terry Garvin And Jerry Lawler
Pat Patterson is often cited as the first successful gay professional wrestler, becoming the first-ever WWE Intercontinental Champion being his greatest accomplishment. Although he only came out to the world a few years ago, just about everyone who worked in the industry knew that he was gay. The same can be said about another wrestling legend named “Terry Garvin.” It was also no secret that Garvin had a huge crush on Jerry Lawler. Jim Cornette told the story on his podcast how back in the ’80s that when Lawler found out that Garvin had a crush on him, he was going to prank Garvin by making him think that The King would let him give him a blow job. So, in a hotel room, with Jerry Jarrett present, Lawler pulled his tights around his own ankles, and just as Garvin was ready to do the deed, he pushed Garvin away and ran out the door. Garvin chased after him down the hotel lobby and into the streets, all while Lawler had his tights around his ankles.
Women Paid for a Night with Junkyard Dog
We all know how celebrities who were stupid enough to pay untrustworthy mates for sex saw their careers plummet quickly afterward. Just ask Tiger Woods. It’s never a good idea for celebrities in any industry (wrestling, movie, music, etc.) to pay for sex with anybody because it can ruin their career terribly if word gets out about it. The late WWE Hall of Famer Junkyard Dog knew this, so he decided to flip this into his favor. Considering he was one of the most popular and well-known wrestlers in his heyday, Junkyard Dog would have women pay him for sex instead. If he ran into a woman interested in spending the night with him, he would charge up to $100. If the woman didn’t have the money, he would allow them to find other ways to pay him, such as give him drugs or booze. Considering that JD was never caught in a bad scandal, had good nights, and got $100 out of each of them, it sounds like his scheme worked out for him, surprisingly.
Vince McMahon has introduced a plethora of strange sex-related storylines to his WWE TV product. Much of them have to do with the fact that McMahon himself had an upbringing filled with rather strange sexual moments. He talked about the bulk of these moments in a 2001 interview with Playboy magazine. When asked about when he lost his virginity, McMahon recalled going to a matinee show when he was in first grade. He went with his stepbrother and his girlfriends, and they were “playing with [him]” — as in playing with his penis and giggling. McMahon thought the experience was “pretty cool.” Later on in his life, McMahon had a sexual encounter with a girl his age who “in essence, [was his] cousin” and wound up marrying his stepfather. The two really wanted to explore each other’s bodies, and they did just that, although, for some reason, McMahon was obsessed with crushing and shoving leaves into her yoohoo. Vince McMahon’s lived a really interesting life.
Terri Runnels And New Jack
One of the bizarre romantic pairings to occur behind the wrestling curtain was that between Terri Runnels and New Jack. Terri Runnels is best remembered as the on-screen manager of Goldust named “Marlena” and the real-life ex-wife of the man behind the gold paint, Dustin Rhodes. New Jack is best remembered as being, well, crazy. He was crazy before ECW and even crazier long after the promotion closed up shop. The two eccentric wrestling personalities were together for a year and a half. After the relationship was over, New Jack has been extremely open about sharing bedroom secrets between them in interviews. In one interview, in particular, New Jack shared the fact that Runnels liked to eat his booty like groceries.
