10 Times A Wrestler Exercised A Creative Control Clause

These wrestlers weren't having any of what creative had planned

Creative control are two of the most feared words in professional wrestling as although giving a wrestler control over their own destiny can sometimes be a good thing, it is often associated with big stars flexing their big egos to make everything worse for everybody involved.

Sometimes in pro wrestling, free will isn’t always the best thing for the company, the wrestlers, and especially not the fans. 

Check out 10 times a wrestler exercised a creative control clause below. 

10. Brock Lesnar turns down facing Bray Wyatt at WWE WrestleMania 39

Starting with a recent example, we turn to a man who has done things on his own terms for the vast majority of his career.

Since his return to WWE in 2012, Brock Lesnar has been presented as a special attraction and one of the biggest stars in the company. As a result of this superstar status, Lesnar has been afforded a certain amount of say in who he works with. Or, in this case, who he doesn’t work with.

According to reports, Lesnar was offered the chance to do a programme with Bray Wyatt that would culminate at WrestleMania 39. This could have been a nice way to right the wrongs of ‘Mania 32, where the two men were supposedly meant to fight before Wyatt got injured.

However, for one reason or another, Lesnar pulled the plug and plans were changed. Maybe we’ll never know for sure why The Beast declined an opportunity to face The Eater of Worlds. Maybe he just wanted to have his match with Omos instead.
