The WWE has a lot of ups and downs in 2016 and these five superstars are part of those downs. Here is SportsRageous’ list of the five worst wrestlers of the year featuring the lovely heat magnet, Eva Marie.
The WWE called up Dana Brooke from NXT to pair her with Emma. Things were going great until Emma suffered a back injury and she was out indefinitely. Brooke was then given the role of Charlotte’s protégé but it was not very successful.
The former NXT standout regressed in the ring, on the mic and overall as a wrestler. She was also very sloppy in the ring. And despite working with Bayley on a regular basis, she just did not improve and she became one of the worst wrestlers this year.
What a year for Titus O’Neil. He started the year with a nice push and it was looking like he will get a nice single run in the mid card. However, he got suspended sixty days for grabbing Vince McMahon on live television.
O’Neil was fed with Rusev, then turned heel and got into that awful feud with Darren Young. He then introduced the “Titus Brand” gimmick, but it was just as terrible. To make it even worse, he got squashed by Mark Henry in under 10 seconds in an episode of Raw.
Believe it or not, Eva Marie improved this year, but she is still one of the worst wrestlers in the WWE today. The company managed to give her a nice gimmick to give her even more, heat but a failed Wellness Policy test halted her mini-push.
Eva Marie is still one of the worst workers and her microphone skills did not improve. Nevertheless, she got a role in Hollywood that might affect her development even more. Let us pray that the WWE won’t lose their minds and give her a run with the SmakcDown Women’s title to promote her movie…with Nicolas Cage.
Mojo Rawley looks like he enjoys being a WWE superstar but he is one of the worst wrestlers right now. He was called up too soon and despite working with Zack Ryder, he shows little improvement inside the ring.
The majority of his moves is running and tackling opponents since he is a former NFL player. However, his gimmick is clearly annoying and he needs to get demoted back to NXT.
The Shining Stars
There was a lot of hype surrounding the repackaging of Primo and Epico because of the speculations that Carlito might join them. However, it did not happen and The Shining Stars were just simply doomed from the start.
They were also worst wrestlers of 2016 because they failed to get over despite a lot of chances. The Colon cousins are not bad workers but they need to find the right gimmick. They really need to call Carlito and invite him back to the WWE.
