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.)

 

The EWF episodes from Eurosport... I forgot about those.

 

Regal, Owen, Benoit, Iizuka, HERODES and random superworkers showed up, on the other hand you had Flesh Gordon, who was horrible, and gimmicks like TRAVESTI MAN. Yes, his name was THE TRANNY. He was a fat short dude wearing polka dots who actually was a tremendous bumper.

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

 

Hiroshi Wajima, though I would question how "proper" his true dojo experience was, or if he got the Bad News Allen express treatment. He was still godawful, though.

 

And yes, El Gigante had enough of a "real career" to qualify, though if you go by Fantastic's criteria absolving guys who just "fell into the business") he wouldn't.

What about Velvet Sky? She came up through the indies, seems to really love the business, and has been a top star in TNAs knockouts division - including around 2008-09 when the KOs were the best thing about the program.

And yet, she always looks green when the bell rings. And as a talker she's just okay.

And as long as I've gone the TNA route: How about Abyss? Even when I was actively followed the promotion (pre-Hogan), I would often skip over his stuff.

The answer is George  Gulas . Everyone else is just wrestling for second place.

I never actually saw that on Eurosport, only saw a few episodes on national TV TF1. Damn, I missed some stuff that seems awesomely random. Here's a vintage match with Flesh Gordon & Prince Zephy, the two babyface "stars" :

 

 

(and yeah, you've got the French equivalent of rednecks in the audience)

 

(damn, there was actually some pretty good stuff here from Zephy & Jessy Texas. The valet holding the ropes each time his guy makes a tag is a great gimmick too).

Gronda/GROON XXX easily. That guy is still going strong to this day. Does Rosa Mendes count?

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?

 

Is that the same who had a good serie with Fujinami in the 70's ?

I've legitimately enjoyed matches from way too many guys mentioned already, even Abyss, but I have never found anything redeeming about Ken Kennedy/Anderson.

Would the Harris Brothers be on anyone else's list? They are real faeces as far as I'm concerned.

I know this thread is geared for career guys (Great idea by the way) but I couldn't help but think of "Judo" Joe Black. I have only seen one match of his and it was against Ken Patera.  Its on youtube but I assume I can't post it here. Its unintentionally hilarious. I think there was a reason he was never seen again.

 

Can't argue against Tiger Jeet Singh. I laughed seeing George Gulas name. Poor guy but man was he bad.

 

Does the Great Antonio qualify?

How about Velvet Sky? She's not some model that John Laurinaitis picked out of a catalog. She went to an actual wrestling school, worked the indies, paid her dues...and she's still just as bad as any FCW bikini contest participant.

Ron Pope aka Mighty Zulu is a guy that worked for a long time but every time I've seen him pop up on tape, he sucks. He was a popular pick for this topic over on Wrestling Classics, and having seen him in some California footage recently I can see why.

- Dennis Knight/Mideon/Henry O Godwinn

 

Dennis Knight/Mideon was Phineas, not Henry (Mark Canterbury).

Kane?  No, not the worst.  But given how long he's been booked so often he definitely has a craptastic resume.

 Randy Orton is terrible. He must be the mailman's kid . However Randy Orton is no George Gulas . George was so bad he out he  put his dad  out of  business.

Would it be bad form and/or stealing anyone else's thunder to say "Bulldog" Bob Brown?
