We are here with top 10 shocking rumors that have been in the history of WWE. Let’s give them a read:
1. Randy Savage dated teenager Stephanie McMahon
WWE is full of rumors among which the most exciting one at the top of the list, is the rumor of Randy Savage known as Macho Man, dating a 14-year old teenager, Stephanie McMahon.

2. Lita’s wrestling “casting couch!”
As we all know about Lita, that she had her initial training days in Mexico, with the ultimate goal of becoming a Diva and a strong wrestling star. But, there’s more to her biography that is not available on the internet – it states that the Hall of Fame Dive was giving sexual favor to the ones who agreed on training her for professional wrestling. Well, this rumor might be wrong, but as passionate and eager she was to become a wrestling star, this could be true as well. Furthermore, she then became a benchmark Diva, setting the standards quite high for Divas division.
3. The Montreal Screw Job was fake
There are a bunch of rumors in WWE that have been proved to be wrong. For instance, the one with the Montreal Screw job is surely at the top of the list.

4. Vince wanted to be US president
It has been true in many cases of WWE wrestlers that they have diverted themselves into politics. The time when Linda McMahon was running for Senate, WWE got to PG. Soon after, Vince McMahon realized that he also wanted a career in politics. The fun part is, WWE ran a channeled storyline, where Vince campaigned for his run as the President. Gladly, this didn’t happen which is surely the best of all, because imagine if Vince would’ve got the position of the President, he would’ve surely made a mess out of it.

7. Vince McMahon wanted to buy New Castle United
