A top that included nine gladiators counting to the special mentions, and that today, Due to the interest shown by you, the connoisseurs, we will extend to feed the debate.

But first, a quick stop at Gorilla Position! If you missed the first part of this note, you don’t want to miss our top 5 all-star Superstars who will no longer be World Champions in WWE.
Which of all the part-time stars would the office love to give another world reign, but why is it impossible? Why did no one in WWE want Jeff Hardy to be Champion in 2009, and what is preventing him from doing so today? Which recent Overall Champion took the title in order to “create a moment” … knowing that it will never be boosted again? Also, the fan favorite that is surely finding new airs and the various legends that will no longer return to the titular orbit.
Press play to find out about all these curiosities and many others in the latest Quadrilateral video:
5) Dolph Ziggler
Sometimes being talented can be a curse. During his early days, Dolph Ziggler had a hard time adjusting as a wrestler. Sheamus, for example, revealed that he had to face him in his tryout match in 2005, and that he wasn’t very good in the ring at the time, so to speak. His situation changed radically at some point, becoming one of the best eventually. That created a character that echoed his ability to steal the show every night.
However, not unlike Rick Rude in the 80s or 1,2,3 Kid in the 90s, the managers preferred to use their skills to help consolidate third parties through great performances on the string. Ziggler turned to the meter: the office knew that whoever could not have a good fight with him, could not have it with anyone. Finally, that changed in 2013, when at his peak of popularity the top brass awarded him the Complete World Championship. His reign was short due to a concussion, which was all it took to relegate him to his former role, which he clings to more than ever today.
4) Jinder Mahal
Within the WWE roster, be it now, in 1983 or 2030, there will always be a category of wrestlers that based on their physique, one day they may be off television due to lack of plans, and the next day taking stars as if nothing had happened. Y Jinder Mahal occupies that category.
His musculature, the fact of being a point to sell in the Asian market, they make him someone to whom great things can always come back … less for the WWE title or Universal. WWE has already traveled that route and the results were not the best. See him aspire to a maximum Championship from time to time? Maybe. Reaching it, on the other hand, is unlikely.
We would not exaggerate if we stated that Cesaro has been one of the most underrated Superstars of the last decade, if we are guided by popular opinion. It is a point that does not give rise to discussion, that his athletic ability is worthy of a “superman” – a well-earned nickname -, at times even supernatural. And those who enjoy good action in the ring will not let WWE forget it.
Already in 2016, Vince McMahon referred to this issue, the reason for the lack of a push for the Swiss, arguing that the only thing he lacked was charisma, and started a controversy that would be talked about for years (the famous «brass ring »). The years passed and the opinion of the boss was exposed without variations: whatever comes to him, Cesaro is someone who will never be short of work in WWE, but who we all know has a ceiling, and he is not higher than the middle zone of the poster.
2) Shinsuke Nakamura
Shinsuke Nakamura with the Intercontinental Championship in his possession. Since his arrival in the main cast of the great entertainment company, that has not been his only achievement: in addition to the iconic title, he also held the United States Championship and the SmackDown Couples Championship. As we can see, a pattern is seen, and it is that his is purely the second line.
If you listen to the fighters of the past, you will hear the wise words that great possibilities come only once. The Japanese had it little by taking the 2017 edition of the Royal Rumble and disappointing in every way during his rivalry with AJ Styles. The managers are aware of their renown and therefore the consideration … although They are the same executives who recently informed him that their main role is to help consolidate young talent.
1) King Corbin
Was Corbin ever shuffled as a WWE title holder? If we had to guess, we would say At the time it was an experiment that, if it went as expected, would end up bathed in gold. Of course, this was already a few years ago, when you acquired the Money in the Bank briefcase in 2017 and everyone believed that the change of contract by title was inevitable.
At the time it was reported that an argument with the WWE doctor put him in trouble and ended his mega-push, privilege included. Since then, although he had his most important periods in the cartel, he never managed to establish himself as a solid star. He did achieve the throne of King of the Ring, although more than an achievement, recent history has proven that this conquest brings more harm than good.
There are just a few days left so you can support the fighter and collaborator of SUPER LUCHAS, Heavy Boy, with any amount. who is raising funds for a delicate surgery.
