The Biggest Party Animals In Pro Wrestling History
During the 80s, wrestlers lived the lives of rock stars outside of the ring, and it was really all about putting on a show and having a drink with all of the guys after an event. This mentality carried over during the 90s. Eventually though, the party lifestyle began to subside. Today, only a select few are still regarded as party animals, as the newcomers are more focused on eating properly, training and arriving to their next destination ready to work. The WWE has transformed its product into one that only supports professionalism in the work place. Back in the day, it was more of a frat house, as opposed to a professional work environment.
This article will take a look at some of the biggest party animals in all of pro wrestling behind the scenes. This list includes wrestlers from the 80s, 90s and today. Enjoy.
For Batista, a perk that came with being a pro wrestler was the opportunity to live it up, in and out of the ring. The former WWE Champion admitted to loving the spotlight. Over the course of his career, Batista became quite the party animal. He also admitted to developing a sex addiction during his time on the road as a WWE superstar. Certainly doesn’t help when you have the biggest party animal of them all as your mentor, the Nature Boy Ric Flair.
Batista has also partied with numerous celebs, including the Wu-Tang Clan. According to rumours, Dave and WWE star Mark Henry got to party with the group on their private bus.
