This is the one you have all been waiting for!
Folks, you've read about them. You've seen them on old VHS tapes, but now they are gone. They will one day be talked about and not believed without seeing: Jobbers.
With the return of WWE Superstars, I thought it was only fitting to relive the glory days of the WWE jobber!
Some jobbers went on to success while others went on to jobber mediocrity.
We now look back at the greatest jobbers of all-time— the jobbers that could very well be just as famous and more so than some of wrestling's greatest stars!
I can only hope this slide show inspires a jobbers battle royal on an upcoming episode of WWE Superstars. It's only fitting!
Before becoming the worst Horseman of all-time... Before being a WCW tag team champion...
Before performing the greatest finisher ever as one-half of Power & Glory, Paul Roma spent most of his career counting the light bulbs on top of the arena.
It's not very often you run into jobber tag teams. One of the best was The Young Stallions, Paul Roma and Jim Powers. Their greatest moment was a disqualification victory over the Hart Foundation.
One thing can be said about "Pretty" Paul. He is one of the most successful WWE jobbers of all-time. He can even tell his grandchildren he beat Steve Austin for a title.
Walker is the last of the dying jobber breed. P.J. Walker debuted in the WWF on Monday Night Raw. He had an amazing year-long streak...of losing!
He failed to find success in the tag team division losing both his tag matches with partners Aaron Ferguson and Tony DeVito.
P.J. Walker was hoping he would get the reaction of the 1-2-3 Kid when he pulled an upset of his own on Raw.
He became Aldo Montoya and spent the first five months under the mask beating—you guessed it—jobbers!
Then, his fate could not be changed and even as Aldo Montoya, he became a jobber yet again!
Just like Paul Roma, Walker found success outside of the WWE under the name Justin Credible. He even won the ECW title.
He returned to the WWE as Justin Credible and, gosh...that fate is a bitch.
He became a jobber again.
P.J. Walker will go down as one of the only wrestlers to ever be repackaged three times and still be a jobber. That's gonna be hard to beat!
You thought Jim Powers was on to something when he was introduced to the WWE by Big John Studd. Little did we all know he would end up on a top 10 list!
Powers began his career as part of the Young Stallions with fellow top 10 jobber, Paul Roma.
The team broke up and Jim Powers continued the legacy of jobbing after getting a few wins over other jobbers.
Sometimes fate chooses you; you dont choose it.
Jim Powers didn't have the success of the jobbers already named. That, in itself, is an accomplishment on this list.
A jobber is a jobber and to be one of the best you have to job. Paul Roma and PJ Walker lost focus of that somewhere down the line.
Fun fact: Tim Horner actually co-owned Smoky Mountain Wrestling with Jim Cornette.
Another fun fact: Horner was hired and quickly fired as a WWE road agent in 2006. The curse of being a jobber never leaves you.
Tim Horner (and I am not afraid to admit this) was actually one of my favorite wrestlers during his WWE jobber career.
Horner will always go down in history as having his very own entrance music—unheard of for a jobber at the time.
Tim Horner had mild success before he decided jobbing was best for him. He would have never been remembered otherwise. Horner spent quality time in WWE and WCW.
He tried his darndest to get a few wins without being involved in the pinfall when he got to shine next to Brian Pillman and Z-Man in WCW.
Let's just say when they lost. Guess who got pinned?
In 1986, Pistol was called the "greatest black athlete in professional wrestling," by Jimmy Valiant.
He really ran with that...into superstardom.
That superstardom? The greatest black athlete in jobber history.
While he had mild success in the Southern territories, Whatley really cemented his legacy as a jobber to the star in the WWE. Pez probably had just as many matches on weekend WWE shows as anyone in history.
After his stint in the WWE, Pez went on to work for WCW as an agent and sometimes showed up to do what he did best, job! The world lost one of their greatest jobbers of all-time when Whatley passed away in 2005.
"Pistol" Pez Whatley and his tiger stripe shorts, truly one of the greatest faces of WWE programming in the '90s.
Maybe one of the most recognizable jobbers of all-time. He is the trainer of the Hardy Boyz, and what a shock they started off as jobbers.
The story goes that the Stallion would get the Hardys booked on a per appearance basis with the WWE for $150 per show. The Stallion would then charge the Hardys $100 per appearance.
Hey, gotta make your money where you can when your making a living taking finishers.
Outside the top jobbers of this list Stallion probably made more appearances than any other jobber in the WWE. Unlike the jobbers previously listed Stallion had mild success before he became a jobber.
Stallion spent some time in the Jim Crockett promotions doing nothing of significance. Stallion then moved on to WCW, where he was commonly seen as the third member of most six man tag matches. He wasn't any good then either.
Had Horowitz not spent so much time jobbing he wouldn't have made it so high on my list.
Horowitz went on to some mild success in WWE but it was his long time jobbing on weekend programming that made Barry Horowitz the man he is today!
Horowitz probably wish Vince Jr. never bought the company from Vince's dad. He left the company when Vince Jr. came in and when he returned he was perhaps the second most prominent jobber in WWE.
I can say without a shadow of a doubt Barry Horowitz was seen on WWE programming more times than any of the top stars in the company during the 80's and 90's.
Horowitz finally got a win over Bodydonna Skip and went on to teach Hakushi english. Yawn. Horowitz earned himself a contract with WCW, things didn't work out there as he planned. Horowitz got a few wins and then jobbed his way into the history books.
I never liked this dude, but damn it, I have to respect what he did.
The blow away diet to this day may never be topped. One of the greatest vignettes of all-time. If you have never seen it you MUST google it.
"Playboy" Buddy Rose was actually very successful early in his career and seen as a possible main event star in the WWE and AWA. He had a bitter rivarly with Roddy Piper, in what Piper considers the feud that made his career.
In 1982-83 Rose main evented Madison Square Garden against Bob Backlund, which at the time, put him at the level of any other wrestler in the business. He had a legendary feud in the AWA against the Midnight Rockers, who later went on to be known as the Rockers in the WWE.
Rose's weight became an issue and he lost any momentum he had going for him in career. So what did he do? Made a joke and a career out of it.
Rose was part of the first ever match at WrestleMania. He portrayed the character called The Executioner losing to Tito Santana.
If you're a jobber and you get weekly vignettes you have ALMOST made it. When you're a jobber and you get weekly vignettes you WILL make it to the list of greatest jobbers.
Self proclaimed "Canada's Greatest Athlete." Most known for his grunting during matches and awesome chest hair. He was originally managed by Capt. Lou Albano and ironically began his WWE career by beating jobbers. Some say if you can't beat them, join them. Sharpe decided to beat them then join them.
Sharpe actually got to team with Hulk Hogan in Japan in 1984 and even had a world title match against Bob Backlund in 1983.
Sharpe began training superstars, but none of his students have reached the heights of Sharpe. Charlie Haas may be his most successful student, but he will never be the jobber Sharpe was.
"Iron" Mike Sharpe another staple of WWE television in the 80's and 90's and will live on forever as one of the greatest jobbers of all-time.
He has a WWE Classic Superstars action figure. He was a jobber?!?! That says a lot not only about Brawler, but about the impact these guys had during the 80's and 90's. He had Bobby "The Brain" Heenan has his manager. The ultimate jobber, the king of all jobbers.
Brooklyn Brawler was trained by Mr. Perfect. Steve Lomardi began the greatest jobbing career ever under his real name, doing what he does best. He then took on the Brawler gimmick and joined Heenan. While with Heenan, he was a glorified jobber. He then branched out on his own as he didn't need Heenan to do his job greater than anyone before him.
Brooklyn Brawler was given his past due when he defeated Triple in a 3-on-1 match up with help from Chris Jericho.
The Brawler needs to be on the new WWE Superstars show. Brawler couldn't get enough of jobbing that he has shown up randomly on WWE programming to keep his legacy alive.
There will also be an era dominated by a single wrestler. Hulk Hogan. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. Brooklyn Brawler.
