Top 15 Terrible Wrestlers Who Got Pushed For Their Look

It’s no secret that to be a professional wrestler with a lot of success, you have to have the perfect combination. This means that you need to have good promo skills, strong in-ring ability and the right look. When you think of people that had the total package, names like John Cena, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Macho Man Randy Savage come to mind.

Sometimes, a wrestler will get pushed based solely on how he looks, ignoring all of the other aspects it takes to become one of the legends. This is not the fault of the wrestlers who got the push, but by the creative team that tried to make them a bigger sensation than they had any business being.

Some of the stars that were pushed on their look alone had long runs at the top, while others flamed out pretty quickly when even the most casual fan couldn’t get behind them. But which wrestler was the worst and pushed only because of their massive size? We won’t say just yet, but have 14 more that lead up to the most terrible wrestler. Here is our list, starting with an inclusion that might lead to some arguments.

Billed at 8 feet (although he was actually around 7’7”), Jorge Gonzales was a former basketball player that was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks in 1988. The team’s owner happened to be Ted Turner, who offered him a job with the WCW and was renamed El Gigante. After having multiple feuds in his three years, Gonzales signed with the WWE and changed his name once again to Giant Gonzales and was given perhaps the weirdest ring attire of all time. Gonzales got a big push, including a match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania IX. The gimmick was bad, his in-ring work was too slow and he couldn’t speak, launching him to the top of our list.
