5 Goldust Goldust Dustin Patrick Runnels is an American professional wrestler who is currently signed to WWE under the ring name Goldust.

The guy's been around since the Undertaker debued. At that, he's still competing!

6 Jack Swagger Jack Swagger Donald Jacob "Jake" Hager Jr. is an American professional wrestler, and former amateur wrestler, signed to WWE where he performs under the ring name Jack Swagger.


7 William Regal William Regal Darren Kenneth Matthews is an English professional wrestler, trainer, talent scout, author, and color commentator.

I have watched William Regal fight almost every major name in international wrestling. In the WWE he never truly had a chance to shine but since he joined NXT he has had the chance to mould young talent

The best wredlt

8 Christian

Best wrestler ever too bad he retired

Same situation as matt was in

9 Fandango Fandango Curtis Jonathan Hussey is an American professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Fandango.


10 Lance Storm Lance Storm Lance Timothy Evers, known professionally by his ring name Lance Storm, is a Canadian professional wrestler.

All above Lance Storm have all had some moderate success within the WWE. I no Lance held the intercontinental and world tag team championships. But he was never seen as anything special. Regal was great but he got decent things like king of the ring. Chavo got ECW title. Kanes had a lot, Benjamin a solid mid carder. Even when I was a kid he stood out to me and I wasn’t exactly looking for great wrestling ability.

But as a wrestling stand point I would put him second to Regal out of this list.

The Contenders
