It's hard to be used right in WWE.
You have to have a ton of talent, and distinguish yourself from other wrestlers. You have to perform your act so well that it resonates with the fans.
Most importantly, management has to see something special in you and find you the right role.
Oftentimes, the right act is out of the wrestler's control. Unfortunately, being stuck with a bad gimmick can end a career in no time.
For every wrestler who had a great character like Steve Austin or The Rock, there have been twice as many cursed with a terrible one.
If you complain, there are countless others who will gladly take your spot.
There are plenty of talented men and women who were horribly miscast and misused in the company's history. There are also plenty of ways that someone can be misused.
Many of the names on this list would have been better off portraying a heel instead of a face or vice versa.
Also, some talent suffered from debuting in the WWF in the 1980s, when the company refused to acknowledge the existence of other wrestling promotions. You had to start from scratch.
But most of the names here mainly suffered from WWE's sense of humor.
Here are the top 20 most misused wrestlers in WWE history.
