10 Most Infamous Backstage WWE Royal Rumble Moments

10. Sean Waltman's Shady Drug Test (1995)


Speaking to PWTorch in 2005, Sean Waltman shed light on the tactics he'd use to sneak through drug tests back in the '90s, highlighted by one story in which he and Scott Hall went out and got "pilled up" the night before Royal Rumble 1995, figuring WWE wouldn't run drug tests at the show itself as there'd be too much going on.


Hall and Waltman showed up to find ominous "drug testing" signs plastered all over the building. Knowing the previous night's transgressions, Sean spent the night avoiding the certain doom. It was unavoidable, though, and when referee Dave Hebner tricked the future X-Pac into entering the testing room, he told the official that he was too nervous for the p*ss test.

Then came the twist: "give me two hundred bucks and I'll p*ss for you," said the tester. Waltman's response? In his own words, "two hundred dollars never left my wallet and into somebody else's hands so quick in my life."

Waltman went on to state that the official probably ended up taking a handful of benjamins from several other wrestlers on the roster that night as well. Understandably, he didn't mention any names.
