Throughout the WWE there have been many Superstars that entertained us with the skill, courage, tenacity, and love for what they do.
But history also shows us the not every Superstar made it to the top and in some cases to the middle.
This list will show the greatest WWE Superstars that didn't always get the gold, but always had the fans cheering.
Number 10 on our list is the Junkyard Dog. JYD was a fan favorite during the 80's and his unique persona was unforgettable.
While JYD wasn't a regular in the title matches during his time, his ability was still recognized when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
Tatanka was best known for his undefeated streak of nearly two years when he arrived in the WWE.
Despite the streak he was only in one title match in his career against Yokozuna for the World Heavyweight Championship, in which he lost.
He was a fiery competitor and always received a huge ovation when he entered the ring.
Shane McMahon is nearly the perfect example of how to be significant without being too significant.
Shane-O-Mac was a tremendous role player in the 90's during the Attitude era, his good vs evil with his own father helped shape the WWE into what is is today.
Shane held only two titles during his wrestling days and will no doubt be a Hall of Famer in the future.
Number 7 on our list sort of defies the logic of a role player. Benjamin has been a WWE Intercontinental Champion 3 times, a WWE Tag Team Champion twice, and a United States Champion on one occasion.
But Benjamin has also been a regular in Wrestlemania Money in the Bank matches as his in ring skills and athletic ability are hard to duplicate.
He has also been recognized by several wrestling magazines and the most underrated wrestler in the WWE.
Number 6 on our list is the former partner of our number 7 entry Charlie Haas. One reason Haas has managed to have some prolonged stays in the WWE despite never getting a push is his ability to sell a move and put on a good match.
His recent gimmick of impersonating current and former wrestlers has gone over quite well and Haas have never complained or looked like a man forced to do something he didn't like.
Haas does have threeTag Team titles on his resume, so he, too, wasn't completely shut out.
Number 5 on our list will draw some debate I'm sure. Dreamer is a 14 time Hardcore Champion and a two time ECW Champion.
But given the amount of time and pain Dreamer has received in his career one can only wonder why there isn't more gold on his wall.
While the WWE has made ECW a pale shadow of it's original glory Dreamer has maintained his image and dedication to his profession. Dreamer is a working man's hero and doesn't need a title to make a statement.
Number 4 will again raise some eyebrows as RVD is a fairly decorated WWE Superstar.
He was an ECW World Heavyweight Champion once, a World Tag Team Champion 2 times, a WWE Champion, a WWE European Champion, a WWE Tag Team Champion, the WWE Hardcore Champion 4 times and a WWE Intercontinental Champion 6 times.
How is he a role player? Simple, RVD was happy as a mid level card holder, his title runs generally only happened to sell another story or put another wrestler over.
But when RVD's music hits no one stays in their seats.
Number 3 on our list signifies what it means to be a role player. Jake the Snake was a fan favorite throughout his career, he is remembered best for being the stepping stone (no pun intended) for Steve Austin during the 90's and for his outside of the ring turmoil. Jake was never a title holder during his career with the WWE, but no one will ever be able to step into the ring with an animal of any kind and not be considered a knock off to Jake the Snake.
Number 2 is none other than the Hot Rod. Roddy Piper is one of the most charismatic personas in WWE history.
One of the original "heels" to be cheered more than booed, Hot Rod was tremendous competitor and like others on our list rarely stepped into the ring with the title on the line.
Piper was a WWE Intercontinental Champion and World Tag Team Champion on one occasion a piece.
But his efforts and ability were rewarded later, when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Number 1 is the man most consider among the best wrestlers of all time. So how can the Ultimate Warrior be considered a role player?
Well let's be honest for minute and accept that the Warrior was at best a "C" level wrestler as far as ability was concerned and what made the Warrior great wasn't his technique it was his persona.
You never knew if he was going to come out and smash the Honky Tonk Man or show up and save Hulk Hogan.
The Ultimate Warrior didn't need to be a champion to be famous, he didn't need to be a skilled wrestler, you didn't even have to know what he was saying, you just loved the way he entered the ring and never slowed down.
While many have tried to duplicate his style (Batista currently) no one will ever be able to pull it off quite like the Ultimate Warrior did.
