Top 15 Wrestling Scumbags We'd Like To Forget

The wrestling business gives us joy and creates memories. It’s been said that there are two types of wrestling fans – those that watch as children and those that never stop watching. The belief is once you have the wrestling fandom past a certain age, you’re destined to love it for the rest of your life. WWE frequently celebrates and markets their history because fans from every prior era still have a fond memory of their time and want to watch it. The positives are overwhelming but there are quite a few negatives involved with the pro wrestling industry and especially in WWE.

Wrestling has a reputation of many of their talents having bad attitudes. This has seemed to change for the better today with many of the current stars being known for their kindness and appreciation of the business. The past state of the industry saw a lot of the wrestlers become complete scumbags. The 80s era featured drugs, money and power corrupting the scene with WWE starting to become a worldwide phenomenon. The 90s featured petty drama such as gossip and bullying between the wrestlers backstage. Wrestlers having issues with each other or with the fans have been a staple of the business for a long time and it’s created interesting stories.

This list will look at many of the worst people in wrestling and the things they did that made them outcasts to fellow wrestlers and to us fans. Unfortunately, not all scumbags are created equally and some of the scumbags in wrestling were stellar performers that cause us to remember them fondly for the on-camera memories. We’re going to look at the ones that flat out disgust you and give great shame to the wrestling business. These are the wrestlers that are so terrible that you don’t want to remember anything about them. Without further ado, here are the top fifteen wrestling scumbags we would like to forget.

The greatest example of a scumbag in the wrestling business who continues to make us want to forget him is Vince Russo. Following success in the WWE during The Attitude Era, Russo has used the drawing power of Steve Austin and The Rock to carry his wrestling career for another two decades. His failures in WCW and TNA showed us all we needed to know about Russo’s shock jock writing style. Russo refuses to let us forget him by making foolish comments on a weekly basis. The former writer is trying to transition into becoming another wrestling podcast personality and has taken shots at many of today’s top stars. The sad part is Russo likely believes everything he says and continues to keep his presence in the wrestling community, but we just want to forget him already.
