Had a guy tell me something about this once, but at this point it is a rumor since I can find no corroborating evidence to back it up. He said during the filming of the Movie "The Big Boss" that Bruce's fame proceeded him and that there were multiple challenges made to him while on set that got in the way of production (and he beat all challengers). And that some of those challenges were on film. However Raymond Chow thought they were a nuisance and of no use to the film so all were left on the cutting room floor and later destroyed.
However, if true, they were destroyed, so there is no proof to back up this rumor
I too have heard the same thing. From the people who know him... they all said to me personally. He was extremely cocky. And had a a bad temper. I heard the same story and that Raymond Chow destroyed the film.
I also heard the following story from two different sources that was present. "Bruce was working with several people. One was a professional boxer. Not a famous one. But someone who boxed. Bruce claimed he could not be hit. He put his hands at his side and told the boxer to punch at him. Bruce slipped, etc... numerous shots. But eventually got clipped. He got so pissed that his hands came out and he really beat the piss out of the boxer. With the boxer on the ground bleeding really bad... Bruce grabbed Dan Inosanto and shoved his face down towards the boxer. Screaming... 'See that Dan. See that. That's violence!!!' Everyone was shocked and stunned and did not dare say a word.
There is a story of Dan Lee getting his glasses shattered and having to go to the ER to get a piece removed from his eye. Again... something out of anger.
