49) Mike Enos
50) Pedro Morales
How can the World Wrestling Federation’s first triple crown champion be considered a jobber to the stars? In the mid-1980’s, Pedro was reduced to the first half of the card and the occasional TV loss before fading into obscurity.
After tasting success in the AWA (as one half of The Destruction Crew) and WWF (as Blake Beverly), Mike became a perennial mid-carder on WCW programming during the Nitro era in both singles and tag team matches.
Our second WWE Hall of Famer on the list, Garea was a well-known tag team competitor back in the day. But in between becoming an upper-midcarder and backstage agent, Garea ended up kissing his fair share of canvas over the years.
Once a staple in the Southern territories as Dirty White Boy, he came to the WWF in 1996 as the first wrestling plumber, complete with toilet plunger and ample butt-crack. For some reason, the gimmick didn't get over.
47) Tony Garea

Before we start, let's be perfectly clear on what's meant as a Jobber To The Stars.
These wrestlers AREN'T the no-name jabronies who are introduced "already in the ring, to my left" before being squashed by the wrestler du jour, and they're not necessarily the opening match.
In fact, many of these grapplers have theme music, proper entrances, a finisher... heck some of them (if not many of them) have held major championships at one point in their career.
But as a JTTS (which can be before or after their biggest period of success), they tend to be lying on the canvas more often than their opponents are; but their losses tend to be to courtesy of higher-caliber opponents than your garden-variety jobber.
All set? Here we go!
Despite being our intellectual saviour for the unwashed masses, Damien can't seem to understand that dressing up in costume week after week isn't a surefire recipe for collecting some wins. You're welcome!
SmackDown's "number one annoucer" certainly was better at conducting backstage interviews than he was at winning matches in WWE. Evil? IN-DEED!
46) Damien Sandow
The head-shaking superstar ended up being cast as a JTTS after The Nation disbanded in 1998. True, D'Lo had some minor success in tag teams, but he was doing more losing than winning at that stage.
The black hat-wearing cowboy gained some success in World Class and other territories, but never seemed to catch on in the WWF or WCW, where he one of the ill-fated trio known as The Desperados.
44) Black Bart
43) D'Lo Brown
41) Jerry Flynn
The shootfighter arrived in WCW in 1996 with a mild push that quickly fizzled. Perhaps he should have stayed in the "block" backstage?
The former Young Pistol came to the WWF along with other JTTS' from Smoky Mountain in the mid-1990s. While the character had a certain charm to it, FJF was never going to headline a WrestleMania.
42) Freddie Joe Floyd
One of TNA's most "over" midcarders in the early days, Shark Boy didn't end up with many wins, even when he was reinvented as Stone Cold Shark Boy. Oh Shell Yeah!
While Jumpin' Jim excelled as a High Flyer and a Killer Bee, his World Wrestling Federation career lost considerable steam after he traded the bee-striped trunks for tie dye and began losing regularly on television.
39) Shark Boy
40) Jim Brunzell
Crazy's run as a jobber to the stars actually began in ECW and transferred over to WWE, where he even created a short-term JTTS tag team with Hacksaw Jim Duggan.
The cruiserweight burst on the scene in 1997 with Lita by his side and quickly captured the WWF Light Heavyweight Title. But that title win was the high point of his career and things spiraled downward from there.
37) Super Crazy
38) Essa Rios
While it would hard to be argue that Meanie wasn't one of the best comedic characters to come out of The Attitude Era, he was nonetheless a jobber to the stars in both ECW and the WWF.
Better known to Florida fans as Jesse Barr, Jimmy Jack debuted as the third Funk Brother in the WWF shortly after WrestleMania 2. Despite his alleged bloodlines to a first family of Texas wrestling, Funk ended up taking much little more than a pile of losses back to the Double Cross Ranch in Amarillo, Texas.
36) The Blue Meanie
35) Jimmy Jack Funk
Afi was supposed to be the second coming of Superfly Jimmy Snuka in the mid-to-late 1980's (read: after Snuka quit the WWF) but never quite caught on with fans.
The former Florida-area standout got entrance vignettes and the whole nine yards before he debuted in the WWF in 1991. But even once he arrived, he was losing to a variety of mid-carders as he spit tobacco into a cup.
33) Siva Afi
Decades before "We The People!", the man now known as Zeb Colter terrorized the mid-card ranks of WCW with his furry face and bullwhip, and sometimes was even invited to do color commentary.
Dandy didn't look like most of the luchadores that populated WCW in the mid-to-late 1990's; in fact Chris Jericho once referred to him as "the winner of a Lou Ferrigno lookalike contest". Still, he managed to compete in some high-quality matches during his run there.
31) Dutch Mantel
32) El Dandy
The Laughing Man's career took off towards the end of his WCW run, but prior to that (and during part of his WWE stay), Morrus ended up seeing the lights more than some of his fellow Dungeon of Doom members.
Tragic ending aside, the masked alter ego of Owen Hart was a colorful character that managed to get some high-flying offense in before he was inevitably pinned.
29) Hugh Morrus
30) The Blue Blazer
Despite having talent to spare, Tatsu never really captured the imagination of WWE fans, relegated to being an extra on NXT before he was let go earlier this month.
After spending his early WWE career as a Major Brother and one half of The Edgeheads, Hawkins struggled to gain any momentum, especially when he was jobbed out to the likes of Brodus Clay week after week.
27) Yoshi Tatsu
28) Curt Hawkins
The H.O.G. farmer from Bitters, Arkansas gained a bit of fame when he teamed with his cousin Phineas (P.I.G.), but his first couple of years in the WWF were spent jobbing to fan favorites.
The hybrid wrestler and bodyguard was imposing during his WCW and WWF runs, but ultimately spent most of his time with his suspenders and sunglasses pinned to the mat.
26) Henry O. Godwinn
25) Mr. Hughes
Yo, baby, yo, baby, yo! P.N. started off in WCW with a bit of push, but soon officials realized that his wrestling was just as terrible as his rapping.
"Dangerous" Danny never seemed to learn how to win, despite being a respected WWF referee for years and being under the tutleage of Jimmy Hart.
23) P.N. News
24) Danny Davis
Louie Spicolli had been used as a straight-up jobber in the WWF, and was brought back after being seen on the AAA When Worlds Collide pay-per-view. Radford, Spicolli's grungy alter-ego, didn't get a lot of wins, but definitely had a memorable character.
Although he's back to being the one-man band (baby!) following the break-up of 3MB, Slater is essentially around to put other wrestlers over and look good while doing it.
21) Rad Radford
22) Heath Slater
Like Skinner, Duke "The Dumpster" Droese came in to the WWF amid a series of vignettes and fanfare. But at the end of the day, his character was a freaking garbageman - not exactly the type you can strap a rocket to the back of.
The outspoken Roma had his share of career highlights, including membership in The Four Horsemen. But through most of his WWF run, he was largely an opening match kind of guy.
19) Duke Droese
20) Paul Roma
"Wildfire" was once NWA World Champion, but by the 1990's, those days were long behind him. So he spent much of his WCW run in makeshift tag teams and losing to guys who were getting a bigger push.
"Leapin'" Lanny's WWF gimmick was that he would recite poems before his matches and toss a frisbee with said poem on it out to the crowd. No wonder he never won a match until he turned heel as The Genius, years later.
17) Tommy Rich
18) Lanny Poffo
While he was one the staples of The Rock 'n' Wrestling Era, Hillbilly Jim really didn't win many big matches, a trend that continued on until his eventual retirement in the early 1990's. I guess you could go messin' with a country boy after all.
Before (and after) his run with Grandmaster Sexay and Rikishi, Scotty spent a lot of time doing the W-O-R-M, but not nearly as much time getting the W-I-N.
15) Hillbilly Jim
16) Scotty 2 Hotty
While many laugh at how long the former Cryme Tyme member was kept under contract by WWE, he was a credible, cruiserweight-size opponent that could put on decent matches as a fan favorite or heel.
In both the AWA and WWF, Zhukov was the last in an era of communist wrestlers that once served as a major heel character in the industry. Unfortunately, once the Cold War ended, the need for guys like Boris in a prominent position also disappeared.
13) Boris Zhukov
I'll show you - you'll see..... Show us how to lose? While Big Stevie Cool was a staple of WWE's Sunday Night Heat program for years, he never seemed to get many major victories.
He's not just the coolest, he's not just the best, he's just another jobber to the stars, or at least he was during his WWE run in 2001. And for that matter, when he was known as Aldo Montoya in the late-90's.
11) Stevie Richards
12) Justin Credible
Although Kofi routinely steals the show in ladder matches and battle royales, he's not exactly the type to use his considerable skill to score many pinfalls.
While the Internet champion made some waves as recently as 2012, his record shows a lot more losing than winning, especially these days.
9) Kofi Kingston
10) Zack Ryder
The Z-Man was a staple of WCW shows in the early 1990's, mostly in tag team matches and light heavyweight-style contests. But the only Z's he produced were from him when he was asleep on the mat (and yes, I realize that's a terrible analogy).
Herc was a staple of many late-80's, early-90's WWF cards, often coming close against his opponents but never quite getting them to give in to his backbreaker or full nelson submission holds.
7) Tom Zenk
Even after becoming "The Greatest Intercontinental Champion for all the times", Marella was turned into a comedy act, which means that he and his cobra are unlikely to ever get much further in WWE.
With a nickname of "Candyman", it was unlikely that Brad would have that many victories attached to his name, anyways. But even under a mask as Badstreet, Arachnaman or his other WCW personas, Armstrong seemed to achieve the same result.
5) Santino Marella
6) Brad Armstrong
"Beautiful" Bobby was known for getting a good match out of virtually any opponent during his singles run in WCW. Still, his career goals became Alabama Jammed whenever he attempted to ride the Midnight Express beyond the level of Television Champion.
"The Birdman" went from singing the title track on the WWF's Piledriver album in 1988 to singing the blues shortly thereafter whenever he was selected to job to the heel of the moment.
3) Bobby Eaton
4) Koko B. Ware
The quintessential jobber to the stars, Santana took on comers in the WWF for a dozen or more years, and failed to get a win against everyone from Randy Savage to Shawn Michaels, and from Razor Ramon to Papa Shango. Even when he was repackaged as El Matador, Santana wasn't ever able to take the bull by the horns. Arriba!
Years before he became the best friend to every sportscard show in North America, Wrestling Superstar Virgil broke free from his boss, The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. After an initial program with DiBiase, things took a turn for the worse, and Virgil became a beacon for jobbers everywhere.
1) Tito Santana
