It's no secret that professional wrestling thrives off the interactions between good guys and bad guys, or faces and heels to keep up with the lingo. A formula that continues to be tried and true is a face the crowd adores taking on the heel with a chip on their shoulder.
It's not uncommon to see a feud where the heel plays on how unfairly he is treated, ultimately receiving further criticism from the audience and boosting the heat against them. After all, nobody likes a whiner, right?
In the modern era where the majority of wrestling fans are more interested in the execution of entertainment rather than the 'fighting', as was the case through the 80s and 90s, the personal relationships between stars on and off screen are just as captivating as what goes on when programming hits the airwaves.
The WWE has a long history of incidents that have occurred outside the ring where employees become disgruntled with their position within the company. However, it's certain superstars’ willingness to race to various forms of media that makes them come off as a real-life crybaby rather than a whining character on television.
With wrestling becoming a major part of pop culture, it’s only natural that fans are interested in getting an insight into the business, and what better way than by reading disgruntled tweets and mainstream articles?
Whether it's portraying the ultimate complainer or throwing a tantrum behind the scenes, here are the top 15 biggest crybabies in WWE history.
14 Vickie Guerrero
13 Kurt Angle
12 Marc Mero
11 The Miz
10 Chris Jericho
9 1-2-3 Kid
8 Jim Cornette
6 Gail Kim
5 WWE Universe
4 Matt Hardy
3 Bret Hart
2 CM Punk
1 Big Show
Without a doubt, no wrestler has cried more times on live television than the Big Show. His teary appearances began in 1999 when Show was delivered news that his father had kayfabe died, reducing him to a giant blubbering mess. The follow-up funeral scene was even worse. At WrestleMania 28, Big Show claimed his first and only Intercontinental Championship which again reduced the self-proclaimed giant to tears. Then he cried when John Laurinaitis fired him on TV. Then when Alberto Del Rio broke his tour bus. Then because he didn't want to punch Daniel Bryan. The record kinda speaks for itself, don't you think?
