As in, who is the worst actual professional wrestler? Somebody who actively sought out a career in professional wrestling, from the get go and didn't just fall into it (ex: someone who always wanted to wrestle, didn't have a day job, etc)? Someone who made it through wrestling school, and into a well known promotion, but were just so bad at it? Someone who never realised that wrestling "wasn't for them" and continued to stick around in the business?

 

With these kinds of criteria we can exclude the likes of:

 

The Great Khali (acting background)

Kurrgan (was just passing through on the way to an acting career)

David Flair

Nathan Jones

Kurgan came up through the territories.

I'm personally not as concerned with background or how/why they broke in. But I do think it has to be a guy with a real career. The worst band in the world is some shitty dive act playing bars in Lima, Ohio or somewhere, but they don't annoy as many people for as long as a band like 4 Non Blondes.

 

I would be hard-pressed to think of a guy who was worse for longer, while still getting big pushes, than Tiger Jeet Singh.

Singh is the answer.

 

Even though I proferred this as the answer initially I STILL read this as "Sting." I have to cut down on the WON HOF arguments.

RAJA LION. This guy makes Kurrgan look like he's got the grace and finesse of Rey Misterio Jr.

 

If we are counting trained wrestlers who had long careers then I agree it's got to be Tiger Jeet Singh.

I would like to say Sandman, but I don't know that I've watched enough of him to properly judge. But from what I've seen, and it's a fair enough portion, he's just awful.

I'd rather watch Khali or Kurrgan anyday. Guys like Rocky Mountain Thunder have at least a trainwreck level of entertainment.

Worst woman from Japan: I was going to say Shark Tsuchida from FMW but her crony with the orange hair (can't remember her name) was even worse. The FMW women's division was atrocious except for the ex-AJW trainees anyway.

 

Worst Japanese wrestler who went to proper major league dojo training: Ryuma Go?

Crusher Maedomari. Yep. Definitely. Even Shark had a few moments where she would look half competent. But Crusher has always been godawful. On every aspect.

Yeah that one. I didn't even bother googling her name. I'm sure you enjoyed the match where Aja Kong and Kyoko Inoue treated them like shits (one of the stadium shows in maybe 1993).

 

Worst luchador: El Sicodelico, hands down.

I did. :)

 

I'm surprised Tiger Jeet Singh hasn't been mentionned yet. Well, okay, he drew, so maybe we can't say he was worthless. Still. The ony guy who I've seen got something, anything semi-watchable out of this load was Fujinami.

 

Dave Sullivan was indeed pretty worthless in the ring.

I saw him in Germany a couple of times being somewhat competent (that's more that can be said for most of the names on this thread!). I knew him from Germany before he was in WCW and I was surprised that he was so shitty. I thought he was a green dude who was going to end up learning. I was also 14 though.

I saw him in France too in a shitty promotion that had a few episodes on TV in 91 or so. I remember guys like Carlos Plata, Johnny Saint or Doc Dean showing up too, along with some French wrestlers (the "star" and owner of the promotion was a guy named Flesh Gordon. Yep.)

Tiger Jeet Singh was my first thought when conceiving this topic as well. I had shortlisted a few more:

 

 

- Dave "Evad" Sullivan/The Equaliser

- KENSO/Kenzo Suzuki

- Dennis Knight/Mideon/Henry O Godwinn
