But there are also great legends who actually never won the belt,some of them you might be shocked in finding out!
Also I would like to apologize for not posting a blog post in over a month. I've been dealing with real life issues recently such as busy school schedule,health sickness,and crappy internet service.
I'll try to be more consistent in posting more so wish me luck! Thanks.
First off is Christian. I always believed that Christian is a great wrestler but Edge always overshadowed him. Yes,there tag-team run was great but when Christian was left alone he didn't managed to live up his nickname as Captain Charisma.
Now that Christian is officially retired I guess we won't be able to see him actually have a one last run and win the belt but he did left a good legacy to be remembered by many just like all legends in this list.
Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
With a huge amount of fans it is actually quite unbelievable that Superfly never won the big belt. I always think he should have but I guess the real life issues he dealt are one of the reasons why.
Hopefully his daughter; Tamina will win the Divas Belt someday and will continue the Snuka legacy,unlike his son Sim Snuka (Jimmy Jr.) who's just another 2nd generation failure.
His definitely a hard working man and for me,his best run was in a tag-team with Bradshaw (JBL) as Faarooq as the infamous; APA. With such a great physique at the time and good amount of fans you thought that he's a "championship material?" but Vince never thought about that sadly.
With his great career before even entering the WWF,you thought Regal would eventually become a champ when he will make his debut there? But unfortunately it didn't happen.
Yes he did won other belts but not the WWF/WWE Championship. I think it would add a bit more "royalty" to his career if he did won but I guess it's already royal enough.
The only thing I'm waiting for is his induction on the WWE Hall of Fame. His speech would be awesome!
"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan
To this day,Jim Duggan still has a lot of fans due to his memorable chant; "HOOO!" and an overall great gimmick. Some people think he's overrated but I differ.
Believe it or not at the time Hacksaw is actually one of the legit "tough men" in the business and many people backstage fear him. To this day Hacksaw still entertains wrestling fans of all ages,I think retirement is not an option for this tough guy!
What did WWE didn't find on him to not make him champion? Well he did had the chance against Triple H at one point but obviously Hunter's relationship with the McMahon family is what made him kept the belt.
Whatever promotion Booker T would work for,he would give his best and any gimmick he will play whether babyface or heel would result into greatness! (Except maybe for G.I. Bro)
I'm happy that Booker T is now a part of the RAW commentary team and I think he would add more fun to the crew. To the haters...give him a chance SUCKA!
Razor Ramon was both loved and hated at the time,no one could forget about the his ladder match against Shawn Michaels! He did won the Intercontinental Championship in which he had a good run with.
Whatever the case is, I think Razor Ramon would have made a great WWE/WWF Champion.
Ain't that right,Chico? ;)
Ted DiBiase Sr.
Anyways before becoming the arrogant rich guy,Ted DiBiase actually had a great wrestling career already mainly thanks to his father; "Iron" Mike DiBiase who thought him the right ways of pro wrestling. Yes he's a 2nd generaton superstar which not a lot of people know!
So when he made his debut on WWF, DiBiase even got bigger (even bigger than his father) when Vince gave him the rich man gimmick we all hated back then!
Considering that he's the biggest heel at his time,he should have had a legit title run with the belt.
The man would just deliver every piece of greatness in all the matches he's involved in and a lot of his feuds were also very memorable. I've always loved his feud with Hacksaw Jim Duggan as King Harley Race,I think that's one of the best highlights of his career as The King!
Being a great overall wrestler,Harley Race does deserved to win the big belt but I guess when he came to the WWF at the time he wasn't on his best shape/prime anymore.
Nowadays Harley Race is training the future of pro wrestling in his academy so if you're planning to become a pro wrestler,I suggest get learning from a certified legend and that is Harley Race!
Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
He can also wrestle well with anyone he works with, probably he's most memorable feud was against "Macho Man" Randy Savage it's almost equal to the Hulk Hogan vs Ultimate Warrior feud.
He did won the Intercontinental Championship and a few other belts in his career but never the "big one." Steamboat could easily make a great face for the company like John Cena but I guess he was overshadowed by the other legends at his time like Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage.
Jake "The Snake" Roberts
Whenever the fans sees him,they would cheer especially when he gets those snakes out! A lot of the feuds he was involved with are very great and memorable as well.
For me there are two primary reasons why he didn't won the big belt or ANY belt for that matter in his run in WWF.
No. 1 is (like most legends from this list) is he was overshadowed again by many great legends such as Hulk Hogan in which Jake was stuck as kinda like his "sidekick" as seen in most Survivor Series he was involved.
And No. 2 is his battle with his personal demons. Jake used to be a "bad person" as what most people would consider because of his past but thanks to the help of fellow wrestling legend and friend; Diamond Dallas Page his life was saved!
I'm glad that Jake is now doing well and was finally inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame but I guess he's the only man on his list that actually never won any kind of belt in the WWF/WWE which is quite shocking.
"Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig
Mr. Perfect almost had a "perfect" run in the WWF but there's one thing that he definitely deserved to achieve and that is to win the WWF/WWE Belt.
He is considered as one of the biggest names to ever be a part of the company because of many reasons. He even became a bigger name than his father; Larry "The Axe" Hennig.
His son Joe Hennig better known as Curtis Axel is currently in the WWE but with his current situation,I think he may not win the belt as well. But who knows,I may be too early to judge. We'll see.
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper
But when the internet came along into my existence, I saw the truth that he actually never won the belt. Hot Rod is not just known for his wrestling skills and looks but also for his GREAT microphone skills!
Piper's Pit is probably my most favorite segment to watch in WWF when my dad showed me the 80's wrestling thanks to some DVD's. He was just definitely fun to watch and listen to!
With his involvement with other bigger names in the company and an overall great wrestler he would obviously make a great champion but I guess it's a no for WWF team at the time.
Even though he didn't won the big belt, Roddy Piper will still remain as one of the greatest of all time not just in WWE but in professional wrestling history!
If you got the time, I suggest listening to his podcast; Piper's Pit. He has interviewed other great legends already such as "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan,Jim Ross,Terry Funk,Bushwhacker Luke,and more!
