WWE Superstars share their hotel horror stories with SBNation

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

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.
