Anyways jokes aside, busts are usually hyped up wrestlers who seem to have potential but never got big or some really don't got potential because of how bad they are from the start.
What makes a wrestler bust is either injury prone,poor reception of the fans,or just mainly being pure terrible in the ring (and sometimes even out of the ring.)
Oh and just a quick update, my Top 20 Best Tag-Teams list is coming up soon! Just really need a lot of research and work to get that done.
So yeah, let's get this list started!
"Dr. Death" Steve Williams
But when he got recruited in the WWE, things kinda went down for the Doc. Vince and the rest of the WWE team at the time actually had big plans for Dr. Death, in fact they wanted him to have a feud with Stone Cold.
So they did this Brawl for All Tournament, which is a legitimate boxing tournament where various wrestlers participated. It's actually planned for Dr. Death to win the whole thing but nobody knew about this except for a few members of the WWE team, not even Dr. Death.
As you might expect, Dr. Death loss quickly in the tournament. He only lasted on Round 2 of the whole card after being knocked out by Bart Gunn. After that he was injured and wasn't seen for a few months.
In his return Dr. Death turned into a heel bodyguard gimmick but it didn't lasted for too long. He was soon released in the company and went back to WCW.
In 1993, Borga made his debut in WWF as somewhat of a dominant heel. He had the usual gimmick of man who dislikes America.
Ludvig Borga is the one who ended Tatanka's 2 year undefeated streak in the WWF, he would later on also have a feud against Lex Luger.
Although being a decent wrestler, Borga's bad backstage attitude problems is what made him last only in the WWF for one year.
Jim Ross stated once in an interview in 2010 that Borga is really not a great guy to be with and the man can be a bully if he wanted to.
Kozlov (who's actually Ukrainian) was billed as a big Russian heel at the time (kinda like Nikolai Volkoff) and he was indeed dominant, putting down jobbers and mid-carders.
Then in 2008 he quickly got pushed into the main event scene after getting a feud against Triple H for Survivor Series, Edge was later on added to the feud as well.
But just a few months later it seemed like WWE ran out of plans for Kozlov as well. After his feud with HHH, he ended up in WWE's ECW and later on being re-packaged as a babyface as Santino Marella's partner.
Kozlov seemed to have a lot of potential up his sleeve but WWE just never cared about it.
Also before his debut some cool vignettes of him were shown.
But what made him stay at the bottom? Because he has ZERO wrestling talent. In a few months after his debut, Jones was actually scheduled to join the Undertaker vs Big Show & A-Train match for WrestleMania but that was later scrapped after an injury.
He had a short feud with The Undertaker that ended with another injury. He then became a part of Team Lesnar from Survivor Series but he got homesick and could not do well in travels.
Jones himself asked for his release and WWE granted it. He never returned from the company since and you even rarely hear his name nowadays, probably because he's one of the worst recruited wrestlers ever by the company.
"WHAT A WASTE!" -Grim from GTS.
When Luger came to the WWF, he was re-packaged as a babyface that portrayed an USA Patriot. Vince and the rest of the WWF team had big hopes for him that he would become the next Hulk Hogan.
But he never really got big as they wanted him to. He only has a few of the charisma Hogan had and his mic skills aren't the greatest.
Possibly the biggest moment for his career was in SummerSlam 1993 where he won the WWF Championship by defeating Yokozuna... in way of count out! Although it was an obvious flop, the commentators treated it like it was an amazing victory! That match is considered to be one of the worst (if not the worst) booking ever for WWE.
Luger then became a co-winner of the Royal Rumble along with Bret Hart but he failed to capture the belt at WrestleMania. After that he didn't do much and got stuck with pointless feuds and storylines.
Luger was later outshined by Bret Hart, who is far more talented than him.
Tiger Ali Singh
When his WWF debut was announced everyone in India was excited because he is the son of Indian wrestling legend; Tiger Jeet Singh. Although he will never be as great as his father did.
Tiger Ali Singh got the heel rich guy gimmick (like Ted DiBiase) but I think it got way too far than expected.
On one segment, he commanded one of the crowd to lick the feet of his servant; Babu. And another time he paid a woman $500 to strip down to her underwear!
And the worst thing is Tiger Ali Singh doesn't got the wrestling talent either. He's pretty terrible in selling moves and it seems like he doesn't really fit in the wrestling ring in the first place.
He later tried to sue WWE for $7 million dollars after claiming that they were the reason of his career ending injury and he also claimed that he had experienced some racial bullying in his stay to the company.
As expected he failed in the court battle. Because no one can beat Vince when it comes to these stuff!
In 2008 Singh returned to wrestling for HUSTLE (a promotion in Japan.)
As you would expect Kirchner got the wave-flagging patriot gimmick, and unlike Slaughter Kirchner actually had an army background. But he isn't as great as Slaughter when it comes to wrestling skills.
Kirchner got an early push in his career after defeating Nikolai Volkoff in WrestleMania 2. After that he even became tag-team partners with Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat.
But after his tag-team run with Steamboat, things kinda faded for him fast. Kirchner never got the popularity Sgt. Slaughter had and even the wrestling talent and charisma.
He got released from the company after failing a drug test. He then re-invented himself when he came to Japan as Leatherface (based off the character of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies) where he would wrestle in various hardcore matches.
Brakkus is actually a well known bodybuilder and was once a contestant for Mr. Olympia before coming to the wrestling business.
Vince really liked the man because of how big his body was but it would be one of the reasons why his career as a wrestler was nothing but a flop.
Due to his size, Brakkus is very largely immobile.
He then participated in the Brawl for All Tournament but loses quickly in Round 1 after being demolished by Savio Vega!
Probably Brakkus' most well known match is when he jobbed against Tazz in ECW. After his Brawl for All Match he was never seen again in wrestling.
Gonzalez is got to be the worst big man to ever come to WWE (even worst than Great Khali!) His movesets are terrible and the way he sells moves are just too funny to believe!
Gonzalez was dressed in a fake muscle suit with his butt showing off. He also appears to have these weird bigfoot hair surrounding his whole suit.
He's only feud to the WWF was against The Undertaker. Gonzalez and his manager; Harvey Wippleman set their sights to the deadman and they did had their match on WrestleMania.
Although this has got to be the worst match The Undertaker had ever in his WrestleMania career. Taker won the match in a weird manner.
After that he was released from the WWF and then came to WCW. Here he removed his stupid muscle suit and was known as El Gigante. He's still terrible but at least he got to wrestle big names like Sting and Ric Flair.
I won't blame you if you never heard of him.
Just like Lex Luger, Magee was seen by Vince as the next Hulk Hogan. He's got the physique that Vince likes but he's even worst than Luger when it comes to wrestling it's because he has ZERO talent in wrestling! I take back on what I said to Nathan Jones, this man is even worst than him!
Tom Magee is a Canadian bodybuilder before coming to the WWF. How many times have I said that huh? Seriously these bodybuilders need to stop entering pro wrestling!
Magee had an early push when in his WWF run when he feuded with Bret Hart. Although all the matches they had were terrible, Bret tried his best to keep up with Magee but he's just really bad!
Bret was upset to Vince that he was booked in an unproven terrible rookie, but Vince insisted to him that Bret could probably make Tom look good in matches so they continued the feud for a few more months.
Not only he was terrible in the ring, Magee had ZERO charisma as well. No one gave a damn about him and soon enough when Ultimate Warrior came to the company he was outshined and rightfully so as Warrior is far more talented and charismatic than him!
He then came to Japan to continue his wrestling career but he just did bad as you might expect. Riki Choshu (Japanese wrestling legend) stated that one of the worst matches of his career was against Tom Magee.
Here's a funny story from Dynamite Kid in his book, when Vince was watching Tom Magee's bodybuilding performance in TV, he apparently wet his pants and shouted "that's my next champ!"
Clearly it never happened.
Also in a match against Tim Horner, commentators; Tony Schiavone and Lord Alfred Hayes tried there best to ignore the loud chants from the crowd such as "boring" and "mega roids!"
Poor Tom Magee. I guess bodybuilders aren't really meant for pro wrestling.
