• Real-Life Fight Took Place Backstage At WrestleMania 32 In 2016
At WrestleMania 32 in 2016, The League Of Nations defeated The New Day in a 6-man tag team match.
From The League Of Nations, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio & Rusev competed in the match, while Wade Barrett was at ringside.
During an interview with SK Wrestling, Del Rio revealed that a real-life fight broke out backstage between members of The League Of Nations just moments before their WrestleMania 32 match.
Below is what he said:
“There was a big fight backstage. On that one, I was involved but it was not me creating the altercation. The person creating the altercation was not against me.
The other two and I, we had to put someone in his place before going out. This is one minute before we went out.
We went out to the ring and one of us, I’m not gonna say who, had to tell this person, ‘Listen, you mother F, we’re done with you. You’re gonna go out and do this because you’re a this and you’re a that.’
So, yes, one minute before we went out in that huge packed stadium, a big altercation was happening backstage. It’s part of wrestling, unfortunately, these days, situations like that.
It happens all the time. It happens in the pro wrestling business, it happens in the doctors’ business, the lawyers’ business, everybody has situations with their co-workers. It’s just human nature.
It’s funny that someone finally talked about it because it would have been pretty bad. One of the members of The League of Nations grabbed this other member by the neck and put them against a wall. That’s all I can say about it! Until next time! Next time I will tell you all the details…maybe.
That’s why I love pro wrestling so much. Nobody knew, seriously. That happened, this member grabbing the other one by the neck, and then his music hit and it was time to go outside.
All of us went out like a team, a real team, like everything was good. Nobody knew about it. We were being seen by hundreds of thousands in the stadium, millions around the world, and nobody had a clue.”
