Top 15 Wrestlers Who Shockingly Never Held WWE Gold

It seems these days that anybody that comes through the WWE wins a title of some kind to test how it sits with the crowd. Between the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship and Tag Team titles, there are plenty of opportunities for any superstar to get gold around their waist.

It was much harder years ago when the titles were limited, and most commonly reserved for the top faces of the company. Of the current WWE roster, there are only a few that haven’t won any sort of title (Adam Rose, Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt are the most notable). Even Zack Ryder has a United States Championship to his name despite being a jobber these days.

There have been some much bigger names that have had long careers with the WWE and never won a single main event or midcard title. Many of these wrestlers still ended up in the company’s Hall of Fame, but they probably would have appreciated just one title run, even if it was brief.

So which wrestlers have had notable careers, but never won a WWE title of any kind? Here are 15 men that got all the way up to main event status at one point in their careers, but were never awarded with a title for their crowd drawing ways.

You are probably trying to think back through Jake Roberts’s eight years in the WWE right now and trying to figure out some sort of title that he won. It’s strange that a big name that was around for so long never won a title, but it’s true. After debuting with the WWE in 1986, Roberts quickly became a top heel with the assistance from his snake, Damien. Many of the notable feuds of the late 1980s involved Jake Roberts, but none of the title matches that Roberts had ended in a victory for him. The man that (possibly by accident) invented the DDT was elected into the WWE Hall of Fame last year.
