Top 20 Wrestlers WWE Will Never Want To Work With Again

“Never say never” is the most common phrase you’ll hear whenever the subject of a former WWE performer returning to the company is brought up. That may sound like a nice, neat public relations appropriate statement, but there is an element of truth to it as well. WWE’s history is filled with stars that returned after swearing off the business forever and, with the company becoming more and more open to re-opening burnt bridges, it’s likely that will continue to be the case for years to come.

The fact of the matter is that as long as there is money to be made on both sides, few people are ever going to completely rule out the possibility of a return.

But that’s not always the case. While those wrestlers who pack up their bags and never return to WWE are quickly becoming the exception to the rule, there are still plenty of them that exist. For some it is because they have walked away from the business of pro wrestling for good and will not make an appearance period. Others simply found happiness after a failed stint in WWE and have sworn off the company.

Then you have the exceptional cases. The wrestlers who burnt their bridges so thoroughly that the thought of WWE welcoming them back into the fold seems about as likely as the XFL giving it another go. Their exits from the company and subsequent time away were such spectacular disasters that they have since become cautionary tales to young wrestlers regarding what not to do should you ever with to work with WWE again.

Whatever the reason for their departure, however, these are the wrestlers we feel confident saying “never” for when it comes to working with WWE again.

While Christopher Nowinski’s run as a Harvard educated professional wrestler wasn’t exactly memorable, his time away from WWE has been simply unforgettable. Nowinski’s post-WWE career has seen him transform into an outspoken figurehead for a group of foundations all attempting to raise awareness of the dangers of sports concussions. Given that the subject of concussions is something of a sore spot for WWE – and that Nowinski has targeted them specifically as a major violator of concussion etiquette – it’s fair to say that they two aren’t on speaking terms at the moment.

Although there probably aren’t many fans clamoring for the return of former WWE performer Nailz, anyone that does hold a particular piece of nostalgia in their heart for the performer will be saddened to learn that a return is simply never going to happen. Not only did he allegedly attack Vince McMahon and almost kill him in the process, but also provided a damning testimonial against McMahon and WWE during the company’s steroid trials. If there were ever a WWE blacklist Hal of Fame, Nailz would be a first ballot inductee. Outside of that, don’t expect to see any association between the two.
