Working as a WWE Superstar might seem like the most prestigious job there is, especially for the fans.
However, when the cameras stop rolling it’s a far different story. They are on road throughout the year and have a pretty tough schedule. Living out of a suitcase year round isn’t very easy.
Week in and week out, fans are used to watching their favorite WWE Superstars on TV all the time. Even though kayfabe is hardly a thing anymore with the scripted nature of pro-wrestling now being well known, we still often forget that the Superstars we see on our TV are characters played by actual human beings.
When Superstars are travelling, incidents happen. Although some of them go as far as bringing the law in between. In this article, let’s take a look at 19 WWE Superstars & Legends who got arrested.
24. Matt Hardy
Matt Hardy may be wonderful on TV, but he has had his fair share of issues outside the ring in the past. 2011 wasn’t a pretty good year for him as he got arrested a few times.
Hardy was once arrested for getting into a fight with his wife, Reby Hardy. Both of them were cut and bruised following the alleged incident. Reby reportedly had many scratch marks on her face and body, and had a black eye.
Earlier that year, Hardy was also arrested for driving while being intoxicated and possessing drugs.
23. The Big Show
The Big Show’s inclusion in this list might be quite surprising, considering how down to earth and friendly he is now. But unfortunately, he committed some mistakes in the past.
The future WWE Hall Of Famer was arrested by cops in Memphis, Tennessee after he got drunk and then allegedly exposed himself to a female motel employee.
However, Show denied any such incident taking place.

She also got arrested for DUI in 2015, but later got released on a bail bond of $500.
