For every Hulk Hogan, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, The Rock and John Cena that the WWE has produced over the years, it has inevitably created an equal amount of garbage.

It's inevitable when you think about it, because only so many wrestlers can be over with the fans at a single point in time, so some are bound to fall flat. It hasn't always been the fault of the wrestlers themselves, though, as many have been saddled with gimmicks that were doomed from the start.

From the early 1990s through 1995 especially, the WWE mastered the art of terrible gimmicks. WCW certainly made a run during its dying days, but the WWE was all about wrestlers with some type of occupation that the fans were never going to care about.

The bad gimmicks that I have always taken issue with are the ones given to talented wrestlers, put in high-profile feuds or hyped ad nauseam despite how terrible they are.
