Every sport, or entertainment sport like this case, has a set of rules that participants must follow to ensure law and order. These laid-down regulations are meant to keep the peace and make the working environment safer for those involved. When employees break these guidelines, the regulatory bodies impose fitting monetary punishments to deter others from doing the same.

The WWE and its promoter Vince McMahon have upheld their methods of keeping employees on track by slamming heavy fines on offenders when necessary. McMahon doesn't take misdemeanors lightly and doesn't waste time to set things in order. So let's look at 19 of the most expensive WWE fines that came from drugs, bad language, refusing to follow the script, and even flatulence.

Enzo Amore - CBD ($2,500 Multiple Times)

After Enzo Amore, aka 'the realest guy in the room' left the WWE, he had an interesting interview with Chris Jericho on the Talk is Jericho show. According to him, the $2,500 fines the WWE handed their talents were controversial. He also clearly stated that he didn't leave the company because of haters; rather, he decided to bail out after receiving another fine for taking CBD-based products.

Amore, who isn't the guy to keep words in, shed more light on the situation, saying athletes use these substances because it's much better than alcohol. He added that the drug, which Big Cass, his then tag-team partner, was addicted to, had medicinal qualities that helped them deal with injuries.

Titus O'Neill - Upsetting Vince McMahon ($5,000)

League chairman and promoter Vince McMahon slammed Titus O'Neil with what was probably a ridiculous fine. While the duo was at Daniel Bryan's retirement ceremony in 2016, the wrestler jokingly grabbed McMahon's arm so he could let a woman go before them. The chairman felt so upset and embarrassed by the incident that he fined O'Neill $5,000 for giving him instructions.

O'Neill was a great person, but he had way too many bad days as a wrestler. First, he slipped and fell while running an assault course holding a beer keg. Likewise, he amusingly tripped in a 50-man Royal Rumble fight and found himself under the ring. 

Ric Flair & Randy Savage - Blading ($5,000 Each)

The company's 'no blood' policy is perhaps the most familiar rule; still, 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair & 'Macho Man' Randy Savage managed to bag $5,000 fines for going against the regulation. The two matches at Wrestlemania VIII were pretty bloody, including the Intercontinental Title fight between 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper and Bret 'The Hitman' Hart.

Somehow, Hart and his opponent managed to escape fines, and when asked how, he replied that they were discreet in their match, unlike the other two, who weren't trying to hide it. Flair and his opponent, on the other hand, were not that lucky. McMahon detested how they went overboard with each other and handed out monetary cautions.
