Wildest locker room brawls: WWE Top 10, March 19, 2018

WWE has released a new Top Ten video of the wildest backstage brawls in company history. For the most part these are a more modern occurrence though some do date back to the Ruthless Aggression Era. Most of them don’t last long but the start of them are hot enough angles that they leave a lasting impact.
