Craziest thing about Dolph is that he's probably one of the few guys who could stretch and fuck up a guy in a real tussle.

I just can't abide Orton. Find him excessively boring overall.

 

And I have a real hatred of Shiro Koshinaka. To be honest though, I can't figure out why - I can see he is good and his matches are general enjoyable enough. But his mere presence annoys me.

Randy Orton 2010 onward. I really dug Orton when he was the Legend Killer into the Age of Orton through 2008. They really dropped the ball with him in 2009 after the whole McMahon feud in early 2009. Anyway ever since 2010 I haven't been able to stand the guy at all. Sure he has been in some good and great matches in the last 6 years but my god he is so boring and even when he tries to show some personality he just comes off as a huge try hard. Anyway my biggest gripe with Orton was the whole fact they never had him put over any upcoming talent in 2011 and 2012 I specifically remember one such instance being the Cody Rhodes feud in 2011 and numerous matches with the likes of Cesaro and the like in 2012.

Stephanie McMahon is probably my most hated character. The McMahons are frequently the worst part about their own company & I find her the worst.

 

Always hated Alex Wright. Captain New Japan is...I don't get the joke. Can't stand Kevin Owens. Loathe the Young Bucks. Rich Swann is pretty bad. Toru Yano & Takashi Iizuka are excruciatingly bad. I really hated Sonjay Dutt. Remember him?

 

Trying to think of older guys that never interested me when watching shows: Dory Funk Jr, Carlos Colón, Junkyard Dog, Dino Bravo, Bruno Sammartino, any of the Von Erich family but especially Kevin, Baron Von Raschke, Dick the Bruiser, Mike Graham, Killer Kowalski, George "The Animal" Steele - holy shit, Abdullah the Butcher, The Sheik, The Boogie Woogie Man lol...

 

I have disliked a lot of wrestlers over the years.

The wrestler I dislike the most at this point, over even guys like Rollins, Owens and Goto, is Bray Wyatt, which is a bit interesting considering his role post-brand split.

 

He truly wasn't making it for me in-ring, nor outside it. I don't think he's a particularly good wrestler nor promo, but the worst part about his act is that he used to drag down people like Luke Harper - which to me is a better wrestler in every conceivable way possible - but now, he is actually improving.

 

Him being in a partnership with Orton is working so damn well - he doesn't have promos that are as long, he isn't that much of a singles wrestler anymore, and most important - he looks like a proper menace instead of a fucking loser.

 

He might surpass the other guys in a scale of love-hate by Rumble, at this rate.

Been watching through mid 90s WCW shows and holy shit do I hate Jim Duggan. Dude makes a joke out of Austin, won't sell for Vader worth shit, won't sell for Meng, just runs over anybody and doesn't seem to want to do any work worth a damn. Not sure if he or Beefcake is worse in this era but Hogan brought some real stinkers in with him.

 

I know that's not news or anything, just something I am dealing with in my personal viewing right now.

Jeff Jarrett.

I didn't mind him as a face in Memphis when I was a kid or as an over the top cartoon Nashville pop singer in his first WWF run. But man alive, do I wanna cave my TV in whenever he's on my screen after that.

Right now, as I'm going through 2005 TNA : Jeff Hardy. Easily one of the worst all-around worker I've ever seen. Not one redeeming quality about him at that point. Awful looking offense, shit selling, sloppy on all level, zero "character work", dull promo, dumb as fuck garbage work, terrible pseudo "artistic" look, idiotic nickname.

Slamboree 93 reminded me of one - Scott Norton.  Dude sells nothing for nobody including the Giant.

I just thought of another big one for me: Johnny Nitro/Mundo. I really loathe his offense. I don't know if I've ever seen him connect flush with his awful finisher ever.

I was actually just coming here to say I also really dislike Mundo/Nitro. I have been slowly finally working my through LU season 1 (yes I know) and I just really don't like him. He brings the show down a notch for me.

 

Oddly, I am not a huge ricochet/Puma fan either.  He isn't nearly as offensive to my eyeballs as mundo is, but  I don't get excited when I see him on a card like some people do.  I generally like him better in LU than I do on the average indy show though.

I couldn't stand Mundo in S1 either. The heel turn and the Taya connection in S2 did a lot of good.

And I wasn't the biggest Puma fan either in S1. Fenix was a much better technico. Again, I warmed up to Puma toward the end of the season and in S2, with the great Muertes feud.

I actually like Morrison/Mundo more than most around here, but it's incontestable that Starship Pain is one of the worst finishers ever.

Randy Orton and Alberto el Patron. Orton to me is someone who COULD be great because his timing and execution is downright beautiful at times, but there's absolutely no heart or soul to anything he does. He's had his fair share of good to great matches, but they were usually with someone who was far more interesting (Christian, Bryan, etc). I feel the same way about Patron. I feel like he SHOULD work as a heel being the arrogant aristocrat and he played a good bully to Kalisto last year. But similar to Orton, he's a technically proficient dude with absolutely nothing behind it. And I never liked him as a face, even in LU.

 

Someone who I like and I think is great but a bit overrated would be Jumbo. '86-onward he's awesome but everything before that ranges from "fine" to downright boring. Toyota is another one as she could be legitimately great in some matches and in others she would just do 50 dropkicks.

Ron Garvin - I just don't get the hype. Some strong offense but I just find him bland in every other respect. This is probably reductive but I don't really get the appeal beyond he hits very hard.

 

Harley Race - Boring is probably a weird word to describe considering his bumping style but man are a lot of his matches boring.

 

Chris Benoit - Has been involved in some good/great matches against great workers but the majority of his matches/style do not age well at all. Too much emphasis on workrate, too much working in a vacuum, no hook. Hell, I'd take Dean Malenko over him, atleast the no nonsense shooter approach was sort of cool and he was a good technician.

 

Jon Cortez - Really dislike is a little extreme but he is by far the least of the top world of sport guys from what I've seen.

 

Super Astro - Super graceful aerial stuff but his matches/performances leave me cold. Satanico dragged a borderline great match out of him but that's about it. Really dislike is too harsh though.

 

Keiji Mutoh- Some really high highs but in between a ton of mediocre/bad stuff.

 

Masa Chono - Same as Mutoh except with even less high end stuff

Co-sign the Super Astro mention. It's not a "dislike", for me, but it's more the fact that I don't get the hype behind him.

I mentioned a few names a couple pages (and years?) back and I don't really like talking about wrestling I don't like, but I did want to clarify my old, unrefined points.

 

Sydal is a guy I maintain my distaste for, but I wasn't articulating it very well. I think I am mostly jealous of his abs and I don't trust people that look that happy all the time. Either way, he never really connected with me.

 

Jeff Hardy is still probably top of my list of guys I just don't like and I probably never will. It is a matter of taste I suppose.

 

Styles was a momentary reaction. I went back and watched a bunch of old Styles and remembered how much I loved him in the early 2000s. I was soured on him him right before his split from TNA I guess, even though I wasn't watching that stuff a lot. I am sort of a prisoner of the moment when it comes to him, but if I really reflect on his whole career, i am a pretty big fan of the dude.

 

As for the few posts back...

 

I still don't like Mundo. I had a conversation about him with a buddy recently who is quite high on him and he cited his athleticism and execution. I guess I am sympathetic to that, particularly when Mundo is a heel, but it still doesn't connect to me. I imagine it is mostly the ab thing again, but I just don't get into him. His presence and charisma feels forced to me. So much of his matches are contrived in a way that mirrors HBK's worst tendencies. I completely get why people like him and he is good at what he does, a freak athlete. It just isn't for me and doesn't align with what I gravitate toward in wrestling. 

 

 

Ohh, and Del Rio/Patron is someone I have never enjoyed and i really wanted to for a while.

It is a matter of Jeff Hardy being a fucking terrible pro-wrestler. I have yet to see a single match where I can say he was *good*.
