Big personalities can frequently lead to even bigger problems behind the scenes of professional wrestling. Over his many decades of conquering, revolutionising and ruling the wrestling world, Vincent Kennedy McMahon has racked up his fair share of enemies.
Legend goes there were even assassination plots conspired against the genetic jackhammer during his hostile takeover of the territories back in the '80s. Since then, while things have (mostly) been of a less fatal persuasion, plenty of McMahon’s own employees have fallen out with the boss. Pay disputes, bad booking, misconduct allegations and long winded lawsuits are amongst the many odd occurrences in the real life boss/employee feuds WWE has endured.
McMahon remains the central figurehead of WWE well into his 70s. He has been undeterred by various setbacks including steroid trials, tragedies and the sudden walkouts of some of his biggest and brightest stars. While his booking ideas and industry views have grown increasingly polarising in recent years, his dedication remains impressive. Equally impressive is his knack for infuriating many of the wrestlers to have come and gone through his system - here are ten such wrestlers who crossed the boss for real.
