Biggest Jerks In Pro Wrestling


The Top Ten

1 Triple H Triple H Paul Michael Levesque, better known by his ring name Triple H, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler, corporate executive, and actor.

This guy took steroids to appease McMahon, then proceeded to bang McMahon's daughter to oblivion just so he could get ahead in the business. The longest, slowest, painful, and cringy promos ever! Racist as crap and was one of the biggest backstage politicians ever. Tried to ruin Kurt Angle's title push. Buried many wrestlers by complaining to his wife and father-in-law. Countless main events and 14 time champion without being over like Austin, Rock, or Taker. (He even has more title reigns than all three) And now is an executive in WWE because he married The Billion Dollar Princess. Triple H, you are scum! - RobertWisdom

This list is so outdated. - RogerMcBaloney

Yeah, I know that, but that doesn't make him a jerk. I mean, look at NXT. All the work he has put into this brand is incredible and he gives the wrestlers he hires a chance and he is always behind them when they get to the main roster. - RogerMcBaloney

Time to play the game

Your right.

3 Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.

Hogan sucks!

He is the biggest jerk in wrestling,


He is heavily hated by todays IWC and many wrestlers of his time. - BR1995

Hulk Hogan has long had the biggest ego in all of wrestling. This is a man who never learned to wrestle but somehow always managed to headline every show.

4 Brock Lesnar Brock Lesnar Brock Edward Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler, professional American football player, and mixed martial artist who is currently signed to WWE.

The beast pft more like the Vegas baby he's the biggest jerk in wrestling and ufc stick to chickening in vegas

Lesnar is a complete ass. He has no mic skills whatsoever. Lesnar has twice been caught doping in MMA. He is a no-talent hack who should never have been brought back to the WWE. Mr. Lesnar needs to be released.


I will give him credit for being honest, Lesnar himself admits that he's a jerk, he says he ignores fans and only communicates with people he's directly working with, in addition, he is a complete homophobe

5 Kevin Nash Kevin Nash Kevin Scott Nash is an American professional wrestler and actor, currently signed to WWE under their legends program. He is best known for his time with World Wrestling Federation under the ring name Diesel, and World Championship Wrestling under his real name.

Chokeslammed his own kid even though (the kid) shouldn't of started it. And claimed wrestling died when Benoit and Guerrero were champions

Nash was once relevant. Then he became a complete wanker. This is another man with a huge ego and a short fuse.

Nash was a great talent and then he let the business go to his head. When he returned to WCW in the early 90s (invasion angle) he quickly became an issue. His legendary drunken behavior left more than one person, most notably Paul "Big Show" Wight, injured. This behavior caused his finisher to be banned. The final straw happened when he was allowed to book matches. Between Bischoff's greed and complete mismanagement, and the general drunkenness of the nWo members at almost every show, Nash had a big hand in WCW falling.

Now... Nash is nothing more than a bitter has-been who has so many injuries he cannot do much in the ring.

6 Chris Benoit Chris Benoit Christopher Michael "Chris" Benoit was a Canadian professional wrestler. During his 22-year career, he worked for numerous promotions including the WWE, WCW and ECW. Benoit is often cited as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time.

The Mike Tyson of wrestling - 445956

Two words: Serial killer.

7 Batista Batista David Michael "Dave" Bautista Jr. is an American actor and former professional mixed martial artist and professional wrestler.

Greedy chump who thinks he is the greatest guy in the planet. calls himself a "real man" but has a belly button tattoo and skinny jeans and he is always on triple h's nut

Sucked up to Triple H, he's arrogant and full of himself which is why he ended up on the other side of a beating by Booker T. - BR1995

8 John Cena John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

I hates cena he is the real jerk of the wrestling, moreover vince mcmahon is the real jerk as when cena returns he goes to the ring and said THE CHAMP IS HERE and vince actually gave him a title match. he is burying talents like dean ambrose, sami zayn, kevin owens

Met cena backstage while I was working smackdown. He was rude and looked like he had the devil in his eyes. Not a real fans man.

Stop burying the young talent - htoutlaws2012

Everyone hates em its time for him to move on to somebody else take the face of the WWE

10 Abdullah the Butcher

He gave his opponent The Hannibal Devon Nicholson Hep C during one of their matches, and neglected to inform his opponent he was infected. This should make him one of the top 10 jerks in pro wrestling.

Bladed himself and other wrestlers although he had some kind of disease that can be transmitted by blood and he knew that. - BR1995

The Contenders

11 Scott Steiner Scott Steiner Scott Carl Rechsteiner is an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, Scott Steiner.

I think he is an steroid boy hahah

I ain't gonna deny that made me laugh whoever wrote about the testicles

This man has done more steroids than any wrestler in the history of the business. I wouldn't be surprised if his testicles are the size of peas.

Fans paid to see him at a wrestling event. A young lady had to wait 2 minutes before here husband said something, because he was busy texting.

Should be in jail, dressed in orange and bending over as someones bitch

13 Stephanie McMahon Stephanie McMahon Stephanie McMahon Levesque is an American businesswoman, professional wrestling valet, professional wrestler, minority owner, and the Chief Brand Officer of WWE.

It's just her character in wwe. She's a nice lady in real life. You people are just jealous.

Her screeching voice irritates me. she tries so hard to be like her father but fails miserably

Huge egomaniac, like her father and husband, a spoiled brat. - BR1995

Certainly not for lack of trying

Rko out of nowhere orton rocks

Easily should be top 10 if not top 5. One of the most egocentric jerks ever! He thinks he's God's gift to the world and has nothing to show for it. He believes his own hype and his delusional fans hype and actually believes he can be a real fighter in UFC. He is too lazy to hit a gym. Too arrogant and lazy to train for pro fights. He just steps into the octagon looking exactly the same. If the infamous scripted "Pipebomb" promo never happened then nobody would care about him. Get over yourself. - RobertWisdom

He had no reason to be here, he is the only guy who dare to be straight forward about the wwe policy. He just the guy who stand for what he believe

Ass or not he was right about a lot of things he said about the WWE

Dumped on WWE after everything they offered him. accuses ryback of purposely damaging him. CM Punk is a straight up ass hole

He didn't care about the wrestling business he only cared about making money, he was very difficult to get along with he even held up the WWE for more money. - egnomac

Why is this guy on the list, he's a great guy. He is cool and awesome. He loves his fans and he DID NOT cared about money.

He is so mean


On here twice he's such a jerk. - RobertWisdom

Here's a reason why I hate JBL.
Eddie Guerrero once had a heart attack in the ring.
Instead of helping Eddie, JBL for real forced the referee to let him pin him.
Then, JBL walked off, leaving Eddie behind.

Bullied a lot of people backstage, according to some wrestlers. He also made Mauro Ranallo quit because he bullied him - KingSlayer93316

A nasty bully!

I don't know if he's a jerk but he is boring and overrated. - RobertWisdom

A stupid clown.

Arrogant but doesn't do anything worthy of his arrogance. Just kicks kneeling guys in the chest, does lay back dropkicks, and dives between the ropes. Unless you're disabled you could do what he does.

Always says yes and stuff.

24 Seth Rollins Seth Rollins Colby Lopez is an American professional wrestler and actor who is signed to WWE under the ring name Seth Rollins. He is the Current Intercontinental Champion.

Doesn't even say "good fight"

He's a star. Great mic work and in the ring. Maybe he can teach Roman Reigns how NOT to suck so bad at everything.

Always backs down from a challege, likes to send nudes to his girlfriend on twitter, and calls female wrestling fans "ring rats". thinks he's so cool but is just a tool who dyes his hair half black half blonde like a stupid idiot

Not to mention, he has horrible plain generic theme music

Yes, Shawn was one of the biggest jerks in the biz if not the biggest. But he did change. - RobertWisdom

I personally don't agree with the first vote because he's just acting he's nice in real life probably.

Shawn Michaels has long been one of Vince McMahon's pet projects. He's also known to be difficult to work with and very nasty to other talent in the ring. In a word A$$hole!

He's really not a jerk.-.

35 Eric Bischoff Eric Bischoff

Eric Bischoff has long been referred to as a "cancer" because of the way his involvement with a promotion tends to cause serious issues. The greatest example of this is WCW. WCW failed because Bischoff's greed was out of control and he truly did not care what happened to WCW as long as he got his percentage of the merchandise sales.
During the time Hogan was in WCW, Bischoff's head was so far up Hogan's ass that if Hogan stopped short, Bischoff could taste what he had for breakfast.
