WWE Stars Share Hotel Horror Stories
SBNation.com recently interviewed several WWE talents regarding their worst "hotel horror stories," and below are some highlights:
"It's ranged from turning the sheets back and finding someone's … deposit. Someone actually used the restroom in the bed and then remade the bed. And it was … it wasn't funny. That was in [New] Jersey, I think. Then the other stuff is simple. I had a hotel room in Manchester, England, that would have been too small for Hornswoggle. I was hanging everywhere. They had a TV with a screen the size of my iPad. They had a desk, that you could work at the desk, but the room was so small, the desk didn't have room for a chair. So you had to sit on the end of the bed to reach over to your desk to do your work."
"I actually had one … It was in, I think, Biloxi, Miss., and the valet lost my rental car. I'll never forget that. I'm standing there and it's just like, "Yeah we can't find it." I'm like, "How do you lose a rental car?" Took about an hour and a half, but they finally found it. I guess they misplaced it somewhere, but it was pretty funny there for a few minutes."
"One time, Motel 6, but the lock had been busted off a bunch of times and it looked like they just kind of painted over it, so the door would just come right open and it was really cheap. Bad part of town, shady characters outside the window — it's ground-floor — doing who knows what. So I took the chair from the desk and I propped it under the door and I pushed the bed to the other side of the room and I slept sitting up with my clothes on, waiting for the door to come unjammed."
