7 Times WWE Fans Were The Worst
Created by Kevin Wong on
These fans took it too far.
Less than 40 years ago--when fans still thought professional wrestling was real--things were simpler. Fans cheered the good guys and booed the bad guys. They accepted the narrative at face value. And even if savvy fans knew there was some funny business going on, they played along.
But today, fans know too much. It's led to a post-modern mess, where instead of criticizing the heels for cheating or cheering the heroes for winning, fans react to the performers behind those characters.
And correspondingly, when fans heckle, they cut deeper and meaner than ever before. Here are 7 times that WWE fans took things too far, when they decided they'd rather be the worst type of troll rather than a genuine spectator. And if you liked this list, be sure to check out our galleries on WWE Urban Legends and WWE Superstars trolling their fans. And check back at Gamespot Universe on July 15, when WWE Extreme Rules airs live on the WWE Network. We'll be covering the event all evening.
