You never know what can happen when WWE rolls into your town. One European tour got pretty wild when skinheads and MMA fighters got involved.
Things are a bit different now from how they were years ago. There are much different names backstage in the company. A different professional etiquette exists as well.
During the Saturday Night’s Main Event, Jericho told a very interesting story about an event that went on during a WWE European tour. Triple H apparently didn’t sign an autograph and this started a brawl between skinheads and MMA fighters who just happened to be in the hotel lobby at the same time.
“I think Triple H was supposed to sign an autograph for somebody and he didn’t. He got in the elevator and split. And this guy got really mad and started a fight with one of the guys. And we were in the middle of a long tour. You do not mess with the boys. It was Wrestlers vs Skinheads vs MMA Fighters. Let me just say this. The wrestlers whipped f*cking ass.”
“I remember Viscera was just sitting on a guy (hands crossed). He’s just sitting on a guy and I was going around just like, how many shirts can I rip off? I’m going to rip off your shirt, rip off your shirt and I think Benoit had one of the guys in the crossface and he was laughing. It was just this big giant brawl.’
It’s hard to imagine what kind of event brought MMA fighters and skinheads to the same hotel. It certainly created a combustible recipe that night. Triple H might have needed to sign that autograph instead of taking off.
