20 Professional Wrestler Mugshots You’ve Probably Never Seen

shawn-michaels-mugshot

To become a professional wrestler, a person has to have a certain type of personality. Some might call it “rough”, others “hard”, but whatever quality suits them for pseudo-competitive grappling also makes them less suitable for the outside world. The men and women of the squared-circle are legendary for the amount of trouble they get into, and the antics they pull, while trying to fit in with the rest of society.

Everyone from Ric Flair down to the curtain-jerkers on the independent circuit can be found semi-regularly getting their pictures taken at the local police station. What you see here today is only a small sample of the pro-wrestlers who couldn’t keep themselves out of cuffs.

No one enjoys being in police custody, but the same can’t be said about seeing OTHER PEOPLE in police custody. Here are 20 professional wrestler mugshots you’ve probably never seen.
