Top 15 Wrestlers With The Smallest Move Sets

In the wrestling world, people are defined by their ability to entertain and wow the audience using great mic skills, great acting, and the ability to sell the pain of the moves that are inflicted on them. With the newest generation of wrestlers coming into their own and audiences figuring out more and more about the pro wrestling business, it isn't enough to just have good mic or acting skills, but to have more diverse and compelling move sets to keep the crowd interested in the match and product.

But then there are the wrestlers that just don't have that incredible move set. They simply throw clubbing blows or use rudimentary wrestling moves that make it that much harder to get over with the crowd. One of the golden boys of WWE that many of the Internet Wrestling Community had pigeonholed as one of the biggest offenders of having a small and repetitive move set was John Cena. Over the years though, Cena has proven himself to be a move aficionado by growing his move set into a very creatively diverse set, especially the move set of a really big guy (completely withstanding the springboard stunner. God that's an awful move).

But we're talking about the guys who really offend this new age rule. Whose wrestling acumen when it comes to moves is about as limited as the choices on the McDonald's dollar menu. Wrestling that would ALMOST make CM Punk want to come back to WWE, just to show people how it's done. The people who offended this rule the most fit under certain prejudices: big or extreme. The people who really deserve to be made fun of for their small move sets are those wrestlers you would expect to have many more moves than they actually do. The reason they're singled out is because they were capable of doing so much more, but just stick to their regular moves and fail to expand themselves when they should be able to.

1 Hulk Hogan

The Hulkster. The Immortal One. Hollywood. The Icon. The Red and Yellow. The funniest thing about Hulk Hogan (you know, besides being a closet racist and all) was that he probably had more nicknames than he had actual moves. From body slam, big boot, punch, stomp, leg drop, Hogan's move set was incredibly small for the incredible stature he came to be during the golden years of wrestling. I guess you could add in The Finger Poke of Doom, but come on people. Hogan is probably the biggest perpetrator of having an embarrassingly small move set when he was capable of so much more than being the big man. John Cena understood that as the face of the company, he had to grow himself as an entertainer, not just on the mic or doing all of the cutesie stuff with all the fans, but as a performer as well. His move set grew exponentially and he has become one of the more complete wrestlers in the ring and wears the mantle of WWE proudly (still no Dolph Ziggler, but hey, the guy can try). That's where Hogan needed to improve. He had the look, he had the build, he had the fans, and he had the charisma. But to truly prove himself as a wrestler, he needed to have done more than toss people, leg drop a couple dudes, and yell "WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHIN', BROTHER."
