WWE: 13 Unluckiest Superstars in Recent WWE History

0 of 13

    Today is Friday the 13th, a day considered so unlucky that some people even have a phobia for the day. The day has a longstanding history of being cursed and while it all may be "mumbo jumbo," it doesn't hurt to be a little extra careful. 

    In honor of this feared day, I have compiled a list of the unluckiest superstars in recent WWE history. Maybe they should have been a little more careful. 


1 of 13

    Maxine leaving the WWE was certainly an unlucky event for the company. The rising Diva had proven that she not only boasted that sought-after "Diva look," but she could wrestle as well. 

    The move, however, may have been most unlucky for Maxine, whose little patience for WWE politics has now left her without a job (at least for now). 

Chris Jericho

    As a WWE veteran, Chris Jericho knows how to play the heel role better than almost anyone else, but unfortunately for the Canadian rock star he played his role a little too well during a WWE tour.

    After kicking the Brazilian flag at live event in Sao Paolo, Jericho was nearly arrested. Instead, he was forced by local authorities to apologize for desecrating the Brazilian flag—a punishable offense in the country. 

    In addition to having to apologize, Jericho also received a 30-day suspension from the WWE for his actions.  

John Cena

    John Cena may be the luckiest guy on the WWE roster, but behind the scenes it seems that not everything is perfect for the Massachusetts native. 

    Earlier this year, TMZ.com reported that not only was Cena going through a divorce, but his divorce had allegedly been sparked by some issues relating to his house remodeling:

    We've already told you -- Cena has blamed the divorce on the remodel, claiming it caused unbearable strife between him and his wife.  

    We just found documents showing how bad the situation was ... one of the contractors filed a lien on the house for $110,000, claiming the Cena's didn't pay him for his work.

    I guess Cena must have been waving his hand over the owed money, because the contractors, "couldn't see it." 

Vince McMahon

    Vince McMahon is without a doubt one of the luckiest men alive. Not only does he hold what is essentially a monopoly on professional wrestling, but he is also a self-made multimillionaire who seems to enjoy what he does for a living. 

    Unfortunately for the Boss Man, occasionally his luck runs short. Such is the case with the launch of his promotion's new network, the WWE Network, which has been reported to fail before even launching. That's a tough break for Vinny. I guess he should have learned from the XFL. 


5 of 13

    These days it seems that whenever R-Truth is not suspended for violating the WWE's wellness policy, he's injured.

    Talk about unlucky—maybe it's that Lil Jimmy he keeps around with him? 

Alberto Del Rio

6 of 13

    The Mexican aristocrat, Alberto Del Rio, has unfortunately been ridden with multiple injuries since his WWE debut last year. His latest being a concussion a week before a the No Way Out PPV

    For all the money Del Rio's character claims to have, you'd think he'd be able to afford himself a helmet and some pads. 

John Laurinaitis

7 of 13

    After being at the top of WWE TV, John Laurinaitis seems to have taken a turn for the worse. Not only has Laurinaitis lost his on-television role as manager of both Raw and SmackDown, but the former Vice President of Talent Relations is reported to have lost power backstage, too

Brock Lesnar

8 of 13

    After leaving UFC and making his return to WWE television on the April 2 edition of Raw this year, many thought that Brock Lesnar was going to be an unstoppable force in the world's largest wrestling promotion. 

    Unfortunately for Lesnar and fans alike, the former mixed-martial artist has only had one match in the WWE since his return—a match he lost. 

    Lesnar is rumored to wrestle Triple H at SummerSlam, but given his previous luck, he's probably going to lose that, too. 

Sin Cara

9 of 13

    Known as Mistico in his native Mexico, Sin Cara was one of the country's top stars. Unfortunately, his time in the WWE has been less than stellar. 

    Since his debut, the superstar, from whom much was expected, has been both suspended and injured. Much still remains to be seen about this superstar's potential—that is, unless he goes back to Mexico first. 

Randy Orton

10 of 13

    Earlier this year Randy Orton was at the top of his game. Then he received a 60-day suspension. As SmackDown's "franchise player," Orton's suspension is a big hit for the WWE's roster as well as his image. 

    Maybe those complaints about Orton were right

Evan Bourne

11 of 13

    Evan Bourne must have walked in the path of a lot of black cats...How else can one explain the superstar's incredible bad luck? 

    Plagued with injuries and two consecutive suspensions, Bourne needs to start carrying a couple of four-leaf clovers with him (or at the very least keep Hornswaggle in his pocket). 

Wade Barrett

12 of 13

    Wade Barrett is without a doubt one of the WWE's top heel talents. The British superstar is not only a great wrestler, but has greatly improved his mic skills since his NXT days. 

    Unfortunately for Barrett, just when the bare-knuckle brawler was at the peak of his push he suffered an injury that left him out of WrestleMania and he has been sidelined ever since. 


13 of 13

    When Kharma—formally known as Awesome Kong during her stint with TNA—was brought to the WWE, she was supposed to revolutionize the company's struggling Diva's division.

    Unfortunately for the company, Kharma announced her pregnancy only a few months after her debut. Even worse, the Diva would later announce that her pregnancy had resulted in a miscarriage

    Adding to the former TNA Knockout champion's bad luck, rumors have begun circulating stating that Kharma has been let go by the company
