Pro Wrestling: The Worst Characters of All Time
Throughout wrestling history, there have been some terrible characters that should have never been created in the first place.
From the Godwinns to Disco Inferno to Gillberg, we have seen some bad ones over the years—and that's an understatement.
Here are the worst characters in pro wrestling history in no particular order/ranking.
Created for former WWE wrestler Mike Shaw, the Bastion Booger was one of the strangest characters in wrestling history.
The character was known for his obnoxious behavior throughout his time in the WWF, which never really went over well with the fans.
Shaw died in 2010 of a heart attack, and he will forever be known as playing one of the worst wrestlers ever in Bastion Booger.
Disco Inferno was easily one of the worst characters that the WCW ever came up with in their existence.
He tried to woo fans with his dancing moves during each match, but it never amounted to anything except embarrassment for Disco.
Plus, who has a chart-buster as their finishing move?
Poor Owen Hart had the task of playing this character for the final years of his wrestling career.
During his promos, he would say that he always took his vitamins, said his prayers and drank his milk.
You have to think that this was not the role that Owen wanted to go out with when he fell to his tragic death at the Over The Edge pay-per-view back in May 1999.
The Godwinns were a WWE tag team in the 1990's.
Their characters were supposed to be hog farmers from Arkansas.
They actually lasted for seven long years, but their attire of overalls and redneck attitude never scored them many points with the sport's fans.
Made up of then-young guns Shannon Moore, Shane Helms and Evan Karagias, Three Count never was the smashing hit that WCW envisioned they would be when they put the trio together.
One of the only things that I can remember them for was their ridiculous feud with then-WCW wrestler Tank Abbott.
In fact, I'm not for sure what is worse, their theme song or their overall image.
Obviously, this was a play on former WCW and WWE star Bill Goldberg.
I'm still not for sure what WWE was thinking then they created Gillberg, as he wasn't funny and his character died out pretty fast.
I think WWE officials wish they could have this one back.
The Blue Meanie
Seriously? The Blue Meanie?
I didn't even have an explanation on why this was one of the worst wrestling characters ever.
I'm sure it's pretty self-explanatory.
Just Joe was one of many characters played by former WWE wrestler Joe Hitchen.
Unfortunately for Hichen, it was his worst gimmick by far.
It was so bad that it didn't even last a year before WWE decided to scrap the idea.
This was simply another horrific idea for a wrestler character by World Championship Wrestling.
I don't see how a composer-type character would ever make a good wrestler.
Apparently, WCW realized this as well when they stopped the gimmick after a short time in the late 1990's.
The Demon was played by Dale Torborg, and he looked a lot similar to a member of a famous rock band.
I'm talking about KISS of course, as the Demon later went by "The KISS Demon."
The problem with a character like the Demon is that it has been done so many times before, and Torborg simply didn't have the charisma to make his character a hit with wrestling fans.
