Top 15 Biggest WWE Backstage Butt Kissers

WWE is a political minefield that adds so many other factors one has to deal with to achieve success. Unlike sports where there are on-field results that will make one become a star and deemed the best, WWE choose who they want to be the top athletes on the program and which will ultimately fail. One of the more annoying things that exist in the WWE atmosphere is the political game of being close to the right people in the right places and knowing how to portray one’s self in the best light for WWE’s outlook of them.

Wrestlers have to at the very least have a good relationship with Vince McMahon to get a big push and a chance at making significant money in the business but it doesn’t mean kissing up is mandatory. CM Punk and Daniel Bryan became two of the biggest WWE stars of the last decade and neither is known for playing the corporate role. Both men expressed their genuine thoughts and feelings while standing up for what they believe in. Punk was a bit more vocal and Bryan was more subtle, but they proved you didn’t have to kiss someone’s butt to make it if you're talented and smart enough to develop bonds with McMahon.

The company is still full of people that badly want to keep their jobs or get elevated so they will carve out a plan to toe the corporate line on their way to the top. We’re going to look at various employees that have sucked up to gain success or keep employment. Some are wrestlers trying to become valuable, others are office workers and a few are just forgotten folks that still work for the company in smaller roles. WWE’s culture has created this and many believe Vince McMahon and Triple H prefer it this way. We’ll take a look at how it has all gone down with the top fifteen backstage butt kissers in the WWE.

Wrestling’s biggest butt kisser has been doing it for over two decades and is still successful in WWE thanks to it. JBL has been employed with WWE through all the flops in the ring and stories of him bullying other wrestlers in the locker room due to gaining favor with Vince McMahon. He even pitched the JBL character as an extended version of the Vince McMahon character but with the stock market making him rich rather than owning the company. Bradshaw found a way into becoming the top color commentator in WWE despite having very little skills apart from shouting McMahon’s thoughts on the air in a convincing manner. No one has sucked up more to achieve as much success as JBL has.
