Did you know that the WWE is the largest and most profitable professional wrestling entertainment company in the world thanks to its numerous income streams and worldwide reach? Now you know. This multinational company holds over 300 wrestling events every single year and well over 36 million viewers across the globe get to watch these events.
For a very long time now, wrestling has been a source of entertainment for many people, and the WWE has done so much with regard to quenching people's thirst for very entertaining fights. Most people out there who do not like wrestling think that we don't know that the fights are purely based on entertainment, and that is exactly why so many of us love watching every WWE show we can.
Over the years, the WWE has produced numerous legends and superstars, and it is still grooming many more for eternal glory - not only in the WWE Hall of Fame, but also in the hearts of wrestling lovers all over the world.
However, anywhere there is entertainment and unforgettable superstars, there are other people that we all love to hate, or simply want to forget about. Some highly talented individuals have fought hard, won titles, and even broken records that only the legends could, but have ended up disappointing us to the point of not wanting anything to do with them.
There is no doubt about just how talented the following individuals were or still are. The only problem with these wrestlers is that they really made us hate them and we generally refer to them as some of the worst superstars in the WWE. Here is a list of my top 10.
10 Mark Henry
Mark Henry might be one of the wrestling superstars that most WWE fans love to hate, but there is no denying the fact that he is one of the greatest weightlifters in the world. However, despite being a weightlifting legend, he fails to perform like a real superstar in the ring.
9 Santino Marella
Santino Marella's real name is Anthony Carelli and, no, he is not Italian, he is a Canadian. Santino retired from professional wrestling a while back but he is still considered to be a superstar since he was the WWE Intercontinental Champion twice, a WWE United States Champion, as well as a Tag Team Champion at one time.
8 The Big Show
Within the first few years of The Big Show signing with WWE, he had beaten big names like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H and The Undertaker. For a while there, it seemed as if The Big Show was fast becoming the greatest superstar the WWE had seen, until he started his latest string of poor performances. Despite the fact that The Big Show has been the WWE World Heavyweight Champion seven times, he still belongs on this list.
7 The Great Khali
The Great Khali's inclusion in this list has nothing to do with the fact that he is Indian; it's all about how far he has fallen since his glory days. The great Khali became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion in 2007, and he had a good run back then. However, his performance later on left a lot to be desired, as there was hardly ever a "wow" moment while watching this 7 foot giant in the ring.
It is hard for most people to decide whether to hate Stardust or to love him, because he was such a great wrestler as Cody Rhodes, before changing into the Stardust persona. His real name is Cody Garrett Runnels, and he is the half-brother of Goldust and son of the late WWE Hall of Fame legend Dusty Rhodes.
Sheamus (Stephen Farrelly) is a professional wrestler who has had a lot of success in the WWE in the recent past. Sheamus has been the WWE Heavyweight Champion three times, the World Heavyweight Champion one time, the United States Champion two times, and the list continues.
4 The Miz
Michael Gregory Mizanin goes by the stage name "The Miz", and he happens to be one of the most successful wrestlers that we have in the WWE today. Currently the Intercontinental Champion for the fifth time, this superstar has won 14 WWE Championships, starred in the main-event in several pay-per-view events and has done so much more.
3 The Ascension
Konnor and Viktor are the two professional wrestlers who make up the tag team commonly known as "The Ascension." There is hardly anything good you can say about this team, except the fact that they were WWE's NXT Tag Team Championships for a year and that’s it.
2 Vince McMahon
Although Vince McMahon is the chairman, the majority owner, and CEO of the pro wrestling promotion, we cannot forget that he was a wrestler. Since hardly anyone likes the boss, Vince McMahon is undoubtedly one of the most hated superstars the WWE has ever seen.
1 The Spirit Squad
Another team to make their way to this list is the Spirit Squad, a group of five professional wrestlers who make up what is a "stable" in professional wrestling terms. The spirit squad was made up of Johnny, Kenny, Mitch, Mikey, and Nicky, and this stable became World Tag Team Champions within just three months of their television debut.
All six guys were recognized as champions during their stay at the top, but their defeat led to a breakup of the stable. Some of the things that made the Spirit Squad one of the worst WWE Superstar Tag Team Champions was the fact that they looked like a squad of male cheerleaders. They had some of the most offensive moves, they cheated, and it just felt right to hate them.
