There are very few big names that have not worked for the WWWF/WWF/WWE. Anyone who was anyone in American wrestling has worked in the WWE. In this article we are going to look at the best wrestlers who have not worked for the Mcmahons and here is the list.
Jack Briscoe is considered one of the best NWA champions of all times. He is very well respected and a WWE Hall of Famer. But Jack Briscoe never had a match in WWE or any incarnation of the WWE.
The Briscoe Brothers are a huge part of the WWE. The Mcmahons and Briscoes have a great relationship but Jack Briscoe has never had a run in the Mcmahon empire. Other than maybe a comedy match of some sort, there is no records of Jack in a real match in the WWWF or WWF.
One of the biggest stars in the history of Japanese wrestling and one of the biggest innovators in wrestling history, “Jushin Liger” has wrestled just about everywhere. He made a huge name for himself in WCW with his fantasic matches with fellow high Flyer Brian Pillman. It seems the only place Liger didn’t wrestle or make a name for himself is in the WWF.
It would have been amazing to see Liger in the WWF around the 1989-1996 time frame. Just think of the matches he could have had with the Dynamite Kid, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and the list goes on.
Liger, most likely, wouldn’t have been a huge name because of his style and his size and his lack of American verbal skills but he would have fit in the WWF cartoonish style characters and maybe would have got a decent push.
The Great Muta
In 1989, the Great Muta set the NWA on fire, with his unique style and character. It would have been amazing to see Muta in the WWF in the late 80’s and the early 90’s. Muta would have played a great evil foreigner for the WWF. He could have had some good matches with Hogan and some classics with Randy Savage. Muta, in the early 90’s, would have done great with Shawn, Bret, Owen, Randy Savage. Muta would have done well in the WWF in the late 80’s to the mid 90’s. He would have had a good career in the WWF if given the chance.
Lou Thesz is the Godfather of prowrestling. The reason prowrestling became popular in Japan was due to this man. Thesz made the NWA championship, broke new ground in wrestling and at one time became bigger than the sport of prowrestling. Most moves today were created by Thesz or variations of his creations. How could one of the biggest names in wrestling history never wrestle for the biggest company in wrestling history? Who knows, but it would have been awesome to see Thesz in the WWWF in MSG facing the likes of Buddy Rogers (they faced each other in NWA). Thesz is a true legend and its sad he never got to wrerstle for the number one promotion in the world.
Not much to say here, but Sting in the WWF in the late 80’s to mid 90’s would have been incredible.
Sting had the look, charisma, style and work ethic. Sting in the late 80’s and early 90’s was exciting to watch.
