Welcome to Seven Things, a list that will run weekly and consist of very eclectic topics. These are of my opinions and doesn’t express the views of others on WrestlingOnEarth.
Two of the most synonymous things with pro wrestling are gossip and weirdness. The tabloid like coverage wrestling is met with on hundreds of websites referred to by some as “dirt sheets” and with that territory comes many fake stories. Wrestling rumors catch on and spread through wrestling fans like wildfire in a forest. Some are real, some are fake and some are never discovered. Add in how weird the world of wrestling is in general and you have a recipe for greatness. Here are my Seven Weirdest Wrestling Rumors.
Reminder: If you have any suggestions for future lists, feel free to share them in the comments or send them to me on Twitter: @typicalROHfan.
7. Sid puts a squirrel down his pants
As most people familiar with my wrestling fandom know, I love Sid. I get why most people dislike him and would assume I dislike him even more, but for whatever reason I just love the dude’s matches. Less known is my love for squirrels. I once had an unofficial pet squirrel that would come to my fire escape every day after school and I’d feed it peanuts. It once came into my room and jumped on my dresser to find the nuts on a day I forgot then politely jumped back out of the window. Enough about the weird history of loved things in my life as this is a case of two loves not always working out.
Sid apparently had a pet squirrel he would take to many shows with him. The rumor goes that a few wrestlers bet Sid that he wouldn’t be able to put the squirrel down his pants for a full minute. Being the man’s man that he is, Sid accepted the challenge. 30 seconds into the wager, the squirrel “bit a very sensitive area” and Sid had to go to the hospital.
Sid. Enough said.
BONUS WEIRD SID RUMOR: Legend has it that Sid literally pooped in his trunks during the main event of Wrestlemania 13.
