The WWE has been a major force in the sports industry since it was founded 66 years ago. During that span, The Rock, Andre the Giant, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair, among others, have dazzled children and adults alike. However, for every great wrestler, there are more who made little or no impact, whose careers lasted a year at most and were nothing more than one trick ponies in a stable full of mustangs. That’s what this list is! Here are the greatest one-hit wonders the WWE has ever seen.
Duke The Dumpster Droese Takes Out The Trash
The 1980s were a very glamorous time for professional wrestling. Performers wore bejeweled skin-tight spandex and were basically the definition of cartoon characters. Tired of looking like a joke, Vince McMahon decided to toughen the sport back up in the ’90s and began creating characters based off of blue collar professions. One such wrestler was Duke “the Dumpster” Droese, a character who was just your average everyday garbage man…with an anger problem! The gimmicky character was an absolute flop and was trashed by the league swiftly. Turns out fans don’t want to root for a character who was the literal definition of trash. Wrestling fans are far too sophisticated for that!
