Top Ten Worst Wrestlers of all Time


The Top Ten

1 John Cena John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

What is an 11 times WWE champion and 4 times world heavyweight champion doing on the worst list? Talking about his moves... One can visit YouTube for his top 20 moves... ! I'm a big fan of John Cena and he should be only placed number 1 in the best list...

This is a list of worst wrestlers not most hated Superstars, I lot of people hate John Cena but there is no denying that he is one of the greatest Superstars of all time. The guy can put on a show, talk on the mic like the best of them, and is great to his fans. Like it or not he is one of the greats and putting him on the top of this list doesn't change that fact. And this is coming from a guy that doesn't care for John Cena - germshep24

What an overpowered person he is. John Cena is greedy, dumb, and a huge b$tch when it comes to wrestling. I agree with whoever said Undertaker is boss. He rocks! As I was saying, John Cena loses his cool most of the time and Vince McMahon and The Authority bastardizes him to look like terrible. He surely deserves it because of his bragging and overpowering style.

Does the same moves in the same order in every match.

2 Hornswoggle Hornswoggle Dylan Mark Postl is an American professional wrestler and actor currently signed to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, under his ring name Swoggle.

Well I'm pro attitude era all the way but I have to admit hornswoggle was pretty funny maybe he wasn't a great wrestler but he made that up for his humorous acts especially towards chavo Guerrero hey I always liked the guy so that's why I don't think he should be on the list despite his lack of wrestling skills

What a disgrace to the cruiserweight championship - nickcjohansen

He's little he can't fight so well not domanante only funny

He was hilarious, but not the greatest wrestler clearly.

3 The Great Khali The Great Khali Dalip Singh Rana, better known by his ring name The Great Khali, is an Indian promoter, actor, powerlifter and professional wrestler best known for his time with WWE.

why is a legend like the Undertaker above this idiot. This guy has never even had a passable match in his whole career. This is a wrestler who basically killed a guy with a flapjack, and for that alone he should number one.

Second coming of Giant Gonzalez for being a big yet slow and limited in-ring talent. Only got by in WWE thanks to his apparently huge fan following in India.

Ohh he is just terrible at wrestling, looks in great condition though.

Vince: Alright, we got to bring another Indian back so the market over there goes even higher!
Writer #1: How about the Iron Sheik? He's a good worker and has awesome mic skills. Fans respect him from all over the world!
Vince: Hmm...nope.
Vince: Give that man a raise, we are hiring the Great Khali back!

4 Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.

Hulk doesn't deserve to be in this list! He is a good wrestler. And how the hell the greatest wrestler of all time, The Undertaker is doing in this list! By far the worst list I have ever seen in my entire life! The guy who made this list must absolutely be 'CRACKED'! Or else he maybe jealous of these wrestlers' Legendary career!

Never thought Hogan was a great wrestler every Hogan match is the same he comes 2 the ring showing off his opponent starts beating on him for say 15 or 20 minutes hits there finishing move goes for a pin Hogan powers out or hulks up beats his opponent 2 the punch big foot leg drop 123 match over boring Ric Flair greatest of all time

Ladies and gentlemen this is the man who killed WCW with One finger

I do NOT think he should be on this list because he beat hhh one of the best wrestlers of all time

5 Bastion Booger

Poor Mike Shaw. Although he wasn't very bad at wrestling, and was the nicest guy ever backstage, he seemed to get the worst gimmicks ever everywhere he went. He was an escaped mental patient, Trucker Norm, a corrupt monk, and Bastion Booger. He had to wear dingy singlets (which look like bondage outfits) to have a hunched over physic, so the announcers could make fat jokes. He also found joy in eating greasy foods, so the announcers could make fat jokes. He also came out to a lovely ditty called, "Booger Man", which is just strange keyboard songs with a groaning or farting noise in the background, I don't know. Isn't wrestling fun?

A fat guy in a silver diaper who eats chicken out of the a garbage and finisher that consist of squishing his opponents with his gravy-stained thighs, what sane person ever thought this was a good idea. - egnomac

Why isn't he #1 he's way worst than anyone on this list, and what does everyone have against John Cena

He is big but terrible looking and at wrestiling

6 The Shockmaster

This guy is the most infamous legend of all time. Nobody even knew about him until mattle made a flashback elite of him at the comic con

He's retarddded


A really f****** son of a b****. He had killed a refree by stuffing handkerchief in the refrees mouth and choke him for about five minutes. He is not a human but a f****** monster.

7 Eugene Eugene

Doesn't deserve to be in a wrestling ring with his childish antics and annoying childish voice he deserves to be locked up in a mental institution until they can figure out exactly what is wrong him no grown man should be acting the way he acts how WWE could even allow that is beyond me

Shut up I love eugene

Eugene was never meant to be a wrestler he's only special moves include stealing other peoples moves. - egnomac

Eugene was a great technical wrestler, and those who vote Eugene has no knowlegde about wrestling

8 The Giant Gonzalez

Not good enough to be a basket ball player, even less qualified to be a wrestler, just a tall clown in an absolutely ridiculous outfit, little wonder he had a mega short career.

Outside of his ridiculous costume, Gonzalez wasn't exactly known for having much mobility, in-ring ability and charisma and served as a blemish on The Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak from Taker winning via DQ thanks to Gonzalez chloroforming him.

Ladies and gentlemen, one of the links of that chain called Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak.

Never before has a sports person been overpushed to the brink like this guy, Basketball flop & a wrestling flop in a totally ridiculous outfit, although sad that he passed away, he certainly didn't belong in a wrestling ring & his height was his only plus.

9 Santino Marella Santino Marella Anthony Carelli better known by his ring name Santino Marella, is an Italian Canadian actor, retired professional wrestler and mixed martial artist.

This guy doesn't wrestle. He dresses in a stupid mankini and has a stupid annoying Italian accent. He even dressed up as a girl to play as a diva so he could beat someone, and STILL lost. And why are some of the most successful wrestlers of all time on here?

Santino Marella is one of those prime examples of WWE being "pg" a fool who goes out there makes a fool of himself in front of a live audience by using that stupid cobra which is a horrible pg version of mr socko I mean instead of sticking a sock down someone's throat you're pretending that that sock is a real life cobra and making it jam into someone's throat which probably isn't anything at all not to mention that he goes down the entrance ramp like an idiot swiveling his hips and pretending like he's playing a trumpet or bugle whatever it is the point is he's nothing more than a comedy act not a legitimate wrestler but hey it's pg right WWE needs those kind of guys they're for the kids now I guess wrestling with attitude doesn't mean anymore these days

This man should not be on the list either.

he sucks

10 Adrian Adonis

Puppies are adorable, rabbits are adorable what isn't adorable is a fat guy in a diaper with make up on and dresses like a drag queen, I hate to see what this guy was like before he called this an improvement. - egnomac

He was a great heel. His character was designed to generate as much heat as possible, and he totally succeeded. He was someone you loved to hate


Before the final gay act Adrian Adonis was a respected wrestler with a street thug gig. He was never in great shape but he was far better shape than what you saw.

The Contenders

11 Mick Foley Mick Foley Michael Francis "Mick" Foley Sr. is an American retired professional wrestler, writer, color commentator, actor and voice actor.

Mick was never a great wrestler, but he wasn't terrible, either. What he did do was entertain. Not only was he genuinely funny, but his ability to take the sickest bumps resulted in some of the sport's most memorable matches.

He took my sock

Mick Foley was pure trash, never a good wrestler. I don't think I've ever even seen him slam an opponent in any shape or form. Just garbage but not as bad as John Cena who definitely should be #1 on this list.

12 Finlay Finlay

No way! He was a great in ring wrestler. It was the Hornswoggle fixation that ruined it for him. My gosh guys.

What have you people been smoking?

13 The Miz The Miz Michael Gregory "Mike" Mizanin is an American professional wrestler, reality television star, and actor. He is signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name The Miz. He is the current WWE Intercontinental Champion in his fifth reign.

From day one I've always hated this loser of a "wrestler" hah makes me laugh to even call him a wrestler he's nothing but a loudmouth obnoxious reality star wannabe who tries to hog all the spotlight from everyone else especially those who deserve it more than him which would probably be just about everyone top it all off the only reason he ever became WWE champion is because he took advantage of a prone randy orton by cashing in his money in the bank which is legal but I guarantee you that if they had been in a real one on one matchup no interference from anyone that randy orton would beat miz hands down and then he kept the title at wrestlemania because of the rock John Cena had it won but then after his title reign he was reduced to a nobody except for a couple of tag titles and intercontinental titles but not without controversy though you see this guy can't wrestle especially not on his own and the day that WWE finally decides to get rid of the miz which should've been done a ...more

The miz is not that good sure he's a wrestler but he talks more than fights and I've almost never seen him stay in a match the entire time and last he always picks ups wins from other people like when he was against the big show and ryback.

Who the hell put Miz on this list? He's literally one of the best heels in WWE or really any promotion these days

What the hell! I love the miz and his mic skills are bloody fantastic!

15 Dolph Ziggler Dolph Ziggler Nicholas Theodore "Nick" Nemeth, best known by the ring name Dolph Ziggler, is an American professional wrestler, stand-up comedian, and actor.

Dolph ziggler is a very talented superstar and is one of those that WWE has misused for a while now ever since he world heavyweight title reign he hasn't been used properly since he's not like some of those other guys who claim to be wrestlers but really can't do he's a legitimate athlete and for god sakes WWE needs make dolph's true potential shine in the ring cause these last couple of intercontinental title reigns ain't gonna cut it he should be in line for another WWE world heavyweight title shot cause he's overdue for one in my book

This list just lost all credibility

How is Ziggler on this list and not Lex Luger?!

I hate this list

Who makes up this list?

Who cares if he lost to Neville at WM 33 and EM? He may not be as good as Neville but he is pretty decent

Guys like simon dean and Eugene etc are what made WWE look very foolish at the time what waste of money that WWE poured into hiring these guys sorry but at that time WWE shouldve changed it's name from world wrestling entertainment to world wide embarrassment because that's exactly what it was at the time

This guy is a stupid goofball. He was a waste of space in WWE and should've never been hired

18 Jimmy Wang Yang
19 Tommy Dreamer Tommy Dreamer Thomas James "Tommy" Laughlin, best known by his ring name Tommy Dreamer, is an American professional wrestler, promoter, and actor currently signed to WWE.

Dreamer is denately up there... Never drew a dime after ECW... Was just a lucky product of Heyman's geniusness... Plus he whines and cries a lot in the mic nowadays (see his latest bits with TNA... He knows how to take a bump good, and that is about it.

This guy is underrated

20 CM Punk CM Punk Phillip Jack "Phil" Brooks, also known by the ring name CM Punk, is an American comic book writer, actor, upcoming mixed martial artist and retired professional wrestler who is signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. more.

Why is CM Punk on here?! He's much better than John Cena and most of the other wrestlers because: 1. He can deliver a decent promo 2. He can actually wrestle 3. He's entertaining to watch and 4. He's wrestled against legends like The Undertaker and came close to winning!

The man's an idiot in every way possible. Character and person there is so much wrong it's unbelievable.

I haven't got enough time to list all the ways this person has ever shown himself to be but it's getting uncountable. Especially with the UFC stuff now, I mean he's scared of fighting the green ranger (who would destroy him so really that's sensible) and even after appearing with him and posing for photos, he claimed to not know him to avoid the challenge. Man's a prick


He is stupid as the mix

22 Kurt Angle Kurt Angle

Hey shut the hell up Kurt is awesome

Kurt angle seriously of the wrestlers out there you had to pick."kurt angle" come on people wake up this guy's an Olympic hero who won his gold medal with broken neck he's also one of the most decorated champions in wrestling history he's a 13 time world champion only superstar to hold every single title in WWE and the only superstar to hold the tna WWE world heavyweight iwgp and wcw titles and also the only superstar to hold the tna world heavyweight x division and tag team titles at the same time kurt angle also main evented wrestlemania with a bad neck so kurt angle is probably the worst pick out of all them oh it's true it's DAMN true

23 Zeus

This guy did not even wrestle at all. He had no wrestling capability whatsoever. He only wrestled in tag ream matches so his partner can carry the load. I felt sorry for his opponents who had to make him look good. Talk about an impossible task.

Only brought in as a promotional tie-in to Hogan's dud of a movie, No Holds Barred, and had a limited shelf life of one year as a result. Even with the monster gimmick given to him, he was not a serious threat to Hogan and was sad to see in the ring.

He appears in a flop of a movie with Hulk Hogan and the next thing you know he is on the air with his plastic shoulder pads on, trying to look fierce with his crossed eyes and total lack of talent- even Bastion Booger could have beat him in a real match.

Just... Garbage. Couldn't wrestle, couldn't talk, his program with Hogan ended the great run of WWF feuds from 1985-88. If he showed up today I would end myself.

Somebody better call brodus' momma cause he is on this list and for good reason he's nothing more than a dancing circus elephant with no talent at all

I hate this clown of a wrestler if he wasn't here we would have seen some more Edge action!

Why did edge have to retire here's your awnser this fat ass who is boarding and every time he wins he just does the same dacncing that nobody cared about for god sakes vince why do you have to fire the rock but not this guy

25 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.

God I hate this dude! He thinks he's the best wrestler ever but he SUCKS and ugly as hell (or worse) and I just can't stand him at all... Very pathetic excuse for a wrestler, I don't get how he was ever the United States champion and I hate santino too, he's an embarresment. I'm glad the rock ain't on here

This man SUCKS! He can't wrestle and he is annoying... I think the WWE would be far better without him

Even his name explains the ego of this person.

27 The Goon
28 Michael Cole Michael Cole Michael Sean Coulthard better known by his stage name Michael Cole, is an American professional wrestling commentator, show host, voice actor and former journalist.

Michael cole is an annoying little prick does nothing but irritate and piss off his broadcast colleagues he can't hold a candle to Jr's success and doesn't deserve to be a commentator one of the worst times in WWE is when he feuded with jerry lawler come how can you let an old timer who's way past his prime feud with someone who doesn't even wrestle and put them in ppv matches that's something that should have never been done because is was nothing but a waste of time at those ppvs especially wrestlemania and it put over some superstars who deserved to be on the ppv and not them just a horrible move by WWE in opinion

I'm sorry I got caught up in the heat of the moment I meant to say that the series of matches between jerry lawler and Michael cole were just put there keeping some superstars who deserved a spot more than they did out of the ppv picture

Michael Cole is a tool

This guy is not a wrestler when he was he was 💩💩💩

I used to love roman reigns but after his drug wellness suspension I lost my respect for him not to mention that he's got more than his fair share of wwe title opportunities he's squandered a lot of them and the title reigns he did have only one was actually a good reign

No it can't be can't don't you understand fool people he is 3 time world heavyweight in such small time he can do anything I know he has done many mistakes but he is a great guy everyone should get a chance, I love you Roman Reigns "Believe that"

Why in the holy name of jesus christ is triple H on this!

Triple h is self-centered egomaniacal and power hungry his talent was there but his success was somewhere else and I'm talking about the mcmahon family because that's who he can owe all of his success to

Never liked h because he used the politics of wrestling to be where he is today. Don't get me wrong he's a good in ring worker but he has used his relationship with vince to be successful.

Calaway began his wrestling career with World more.

You idiot people. Do you know what are you voting? Are you serious. Why the undertaker is the 10th wrost superstar? He is the top 1 superstar ever.

Best pure striker in the WWE with an array of moves and is without question the most dominant superstar of all time so him being on this list is completely and utterly ridiculous and a waste of space on this page

Clearly the person who put The Undertaker here is either a troll or stupid (maybe both)

Who the he'll put the phenom on here if you want an awful wrestler put no fall as on her because he sucks

Man that little 190 pounds soaking wet goat-faced troll is always trying to make everything about him always about "daniel bryan" yes yes yes man that stupid chant really gets old but everyone's too stupid and ignorant to realize it I mean he doesn't really care about the people he just uses people to gain popularity and success that he doesn't quite deserve at this point but all these people basically worship him as like a goat-faced god or something like the mindless sheep that they are and as far as yestlemania goes that's just a disgrace to the history and legacy of wrestlemania and for that made wrestlemania 30 the worst of all them

I do not understand why people like this idiot

Better tag team partner.. That way his brother can carry matches... And he can spear

I don't like to consider him being dangerous let alone a wrestler. Neither is he technical, charismatic or hi-flying. His moves are awkward and stupid less-than-lethal looking. Spear, more like his bony ass being a splinter into the interest of wrestling.
