WWE Superstars tell us their hotel horror stories

Life on the road is tough for a pro wrestler. Check out some of the hotel headaches they've had to deal with.

Cameron: One time, we had an appearance. I came back [to the hotel] and I remember seeing like a mousetrap. Like one of those sticky kinds. There was a piece of candy wrapper [stuck to it]. I'm like, "Hm, I don't remember that being there." So the night I come back after SmackDown!, after we had the taping, I was just laying in the bed and all of a sudden I just see a mouse just run by and go in the bathroom. And I was so disgusted, because I was like, "Okay, that means the hotel had to have known that was there." Because there was a trap! And I was so scared after that. I moved rooms and I was scared to put my feet down [on the ground].

The Miz: I checked into a hotel that ... in the doorway, you could see [people] sleeping in the next room. And the [employees] came out, gave me the key to the room, which was like an actual key, not one of those little plastic card things that we get nowadays. I opened the door [to the room] and I didn't even want to sleep on the floor, didn't want to sleep in the bed. I didn't know where to sleep, so I slept in my car.

Titus O'Neil: The closest thing I've had, is that maybe my key doesn't work once in a while. One time my key didn't work, then I came back downstairs and they gave me a key to another room and that one didn't work. And then I find out the computer was down and they ended up putting me in a room with double beds. It was a crappy night. But I got two free nights out of it.

Goldust: I've got several, but I really shouldn't ... Okay, I'll tell you one story. It's not really a horror story. I was in Japan, and this was my first tour over there. I was there with Danny Kroffat and Doug Furnas. We were in this little bitty town in Japan -- I can't remember where it was -- but Abdullah the Butcher always sleeps with his door open. And I think it was Doug Furnas that came up with the bright idea to get me out of the room and he said, "Watch this right here, this is gonna be funny as hell." And he let the fire extinguisher go. And it was one of those ones that doesn't stop. And Abdullah started coughing in his room. There was white stuff all over. It was pretty cool. [Abdullah] didn't know who did it, though.


Christian: 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.

Bad News Barrett: Probably the worst one was when somebody found out which hotel I was staying in and started doing very bad English accents, pretending to be related to me, trying to get into the room. Yeah, it was just a bit of a disaster.

Jim Ross: 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.

Dolph Ziggler: 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.

Justin Gabriel: I have a few, actually. Let's see ... the most recent one ... I don't remember the town, but I remember waking up and [I was staying in the same hotel as] Damien Sandow. He knocked on [the door to] my room in the middle of the night and he was like, "Dude, we gotta get out of here." And there was nobody checked into that hotel. And I asked the guy [working there], I was like, "Hey guy, is this hotel very popular?" And he goes, "Oh yeah, very popular. It's just out of season." It was just weird. I'm pretty sure it was haunted. Pretty sure. Empty hotel. Nobody. [Just us] and the guy at the reception.

Ricardo Rodriguez: When we run out of toilet paper! [Laughs]
