2002 WWE Plane Ride from Hell: Overview of the Worst Plane Ride Ever Witnessed

Feed Source: Bleacher Report

I know that many readers of Bleacher Report will probably have heard about the "plane ride from hell". I have just discovered this story for myself a few days ago, and have done some digging.

I would like to recap the flight in question for fans of the WWE that did not hear about it. Those who did—look at the slide show and enjoy the anarchy once more.

The events occurred on a seven hour flight that left London, England, on May 5th, 2002. This was after the United Kingdom Insurrextion PPV that took place the day before. The flight was host to top agents and talent like Arn Anderson, Michael Hayes, Stephanie McMahon, Linda McMahon, Triple H, Jim Ross, the Underaker and Dave Finlay.

Most of the people that I will mention in this story were either drunk, or high on a drug named GHB (Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid), which is legal in the UK and USA. For those who are not familiar with the drug, it causes euphoria and makes people very sociable. Another side effect is sleep, and thus it is also considered a "date rape drug".

Now, let us begin.
