I have been giving this particular topic a lot of thought and while we have heels (otherwise known as the bad guys) and faces (also known as the good guys), I have been thinking about the five all time most hated wrestlers of all time in World Wrestling Entertainment (previously known as the World Wrestling Federation and before that, the World Wide Wrestling Federation).
With no further ado, I give you my five most hated WWWF/WWF/WWE wrestlers of all time:
Starting at number 5
There is something about this guy that really makes him so easy for fans to hate as much as they do. This particular wrestler, who calls Toronto, Ontario, Canada home, started out as a fan favorite and the next thing we know is that Edge's popularity was falling faster than sub-zero temperatures.
I particularly did not like this guy when the ultimate opportunist, whom I prefer to call "The Ultimate Egomaniac," forced the Undertaker to defend his heavyweight championship against the Rated R Superstar after the Dead Man had just competed in a grueling cage match against Batista.
Although Edge is a multi-time singles champion, he has excelled as a tag team wrestler teaming with Christian. I won't deny the fact that Edge is a talented wrestler, but if there is one thing about him that makes me sick, it's his damn ego! That is why WWE fans hate this guy and in a way, so do I.
This 6'6" 297 pound wrestler was one-half of the tag team known as the APA (with Ron Simmons) and has a knack for shooting off his big mouth one time too many and although he claims to be "a wrestling god," which I seriously doubt, JBL has sometimes let his ego get in the way of any common sense that is trying to get inside his thick skull.
If you remember the time JBL challenged Rey Mysterio to a match for the world heavyweight title, JBL also stated that if he did not win the title from Rey, he would retire from wrestling. Well, JBL had to be true to his word because Rey beat him for the 1-2-3. JBL, being the blowhard that he is, showed favoritism toward the heels and showed no respect for the faces in the WWE.
JBL soon returned to being an active wrestler and challenged World Heavyweight champ John Cena to an "I Quit" match at Judgment Day for the heavyweight title. It was a bloody brawl as both wrestlers bled buckets of crimson. In the end, it was JBL who uttered the two words, "I Quit," giving Cena the victory.
Cena wasn't finished with "The Longhorn Loudmouth" as he gave JBL a well deserved shot through the " Judgment Day" glass. JBL proved one thing—he was mortal and he also got the beating of his life (although Cena took quite a beating himself).
JBL defended the Intercontinental title at WrestleMania XXV in Houston against Rey Mysterio. Although Rey has always been known as "The Ultimate Underdog", the masked star from San Diego shut "The Longhorn Loudmouth" once and for all by defeating JBL for the Intercontinental title. After the match, JBL quit. Typical.
In at number 3
There is something about the man known as "Lionheart," although I prefer to call Jericho "Brat," that really ticks me off.
Whenever something doesn't quite seem to go Jericho's way (the way the referee makes the count when Jericho tries to pin his opponent, his temper getting the best of him, the way he acts when he does get pinned, etc.), he tends to act rather childish and the more frustrated Jericho gets, the hotter his temper gets.
I recall a pay-per-view match Jericho had against rookie John Cena and no matter how many times Jericho tried to pin Cena, Cena always found a way to kick out and eventually counter "The Walls of Jericho" with a roll-up with his own. That was when Jericho exploded with rage and destroyed a steel chair against the steel ring post and was acting totally insane.
Chris Jericho—crybaby, spoiled brat, and someone who needs a serious whupping.
As we near the number one most hated wrestler, we come to number two and I cannot think of anyone more deserving of being second banana than WWF wrestler from the Isle of Malta.
Baron Mikel Scicluna.
This 6'6", 275 pound would always be known as "The Master of the Foreign Object" because he would resort to any means to win a match and even when he was matched up against some of the better wrestlers in the WWF, Scicluna would use a foreign object out of the sight of the referee and sometimes this strategy would work. Then again, the strategy would backfire and he would get the crap beaten out of him.
Although I may not know a lot about Scicluna, he earned his place in the WWE Hall of Fame. I may not like him, but I will say I respect him.
And now, the number one most hated WWWF/WWF/WWE most hated wrestler of all time (as I see it)
Morrison may call himself The Dhalam of Sexy, but as much as I hate this punk, I have a better name for this 219 pound egomaniac from Los Angeles—The Shalam of Sheer Stupidity. What female WWE fan would want to waste her time with this jerk? If I were a girl, I would rather slap the taste out of his big mouth.
Morrison, who was previously known as Johnny Nitro and teamed with Joey Mercury as MNM, had a reputation for not only letting his big mouth get him in trouble, but he and Mercury would sneak attack an opponent and deliver a move called the Snapshot.
I have to be honest—I absolutely hate this punk and I hope he gets what he so richly deserves—a serious tail whupping.
There you are—the five all time most hated wrestlers (as seen by this fan).
