How can the answer to this be anyone BUT the Brooklyn Brawler?

As for main-event style jobbers, I think Foley describes it best in his books.

I just couldn't let this thread pass by without mentioning the immortal Mike Boyette, a jobber whose win-loss record in the UWF was so attrocious it made some fans actually root for him to win just once, and I dunno if he ever did!

Also, if I may, I submit an obscure name I'm sure few know but would perhaps remember in some respect-- Dave Stoudamire. He was a jobber in the WWF around 1990. On one edition of Superstars, Mr. Perfect just made an example out of the poor guy. Hennig had Stoudamire draped over the middle rope facing the camera, talked some stuff, and literally jackslapped Stoudamire in the chops. The WWF later used that footage as a part of their opening credit for either Superstars or Challenge. I had to bring that up, simply because my brother and I would always laugh our asses off when we saw it!

And we cannot EVER forget Mario Mancini, Bob Cook, Kenny Kendall, or Joey Maggs. Especially Iron Mike Sharpe. To do so would be an utter diss toward Canada's Greatest Athlete!

Yup, Trip jobbed to Brawler and Kaientai in a handicap match a couple years back.

*sigh* I miss Kaientai...

Let's not forget that Justin "PJ Walker" Credible, Rico (Constantino) and the Hardys used to be jobbers too. Who would've thunk it, eh?

D'Lo Brown also did some job duty before becoming a star and then resuming job duty under the name of A.C. Connor in 1995.

Randy Hogan. The old NWA jobber who looked like a pudgy version of the Hulkster.

Terry Gibbs. Just because this guy was in the first ever match I saw live, of course, doing a fine job.

Buck Quartermaine. I just wanted to type Buck Quartermaine. That's all.

Rocky King recovered from his constant job duty to referee a whole bunch of Worldwide and WCW Saturday Night matches back in 1997 & 1998.

I guess Mark Starr would be my favourite, even though he too picked a win about once a year. It's just something about guys with the last name "Starr" that screams out jobber.

Honorable mention must go to the man with the hardest right hand in professional wrestling history, BOB COOK!!

But the greatest of all time must be Mike Boyette. He damn near beat Shane Douglas but botched a top rope move. I can remember JR saying "Poor Mike, Poor Mike". Hilarious!!

But in lieu of the holiday, I would be remiss if I didn't mention Jake "The Milkman" Milliman, for his team won the Thanksgiving Team Challenge, and took home the prized turkey. Gotta love Verne for his innovation, and the ultimate putting over of a guy who had the late, great Len Staley's goatee before it was ever hip.

Happy Turkey day yo, Word Lif3.

I agree. The best 10, in my book:

Iron Mike Sharpe
Barry Horowitz
Ray? The Milkman (I can't remember his name, but he was jobber extrodinaire in the AWA. His last name was like Milkiman)
SD Jones
Steve Lombardi (AKA The Brooklyb Brawler & others)
Vincent/Virgil
Ron Studd (Big man jobber)
Lanny Poffo
Rip Rogers
Koko B. Ware

Stecial note: Great minds think alike: while I was writing my post, another weiner also posted "Jake" The Milkman. How could I forget!

Frankie Williams, who was beaten up by my main man Rowdy Roddy Piper on Piper's Pit.





From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:

DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?

SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.

Does it remind you of any show in particular?

Used to be?

And while they're technically a team of jobbers, I'll throw out the Mulkey Brothers as well because you just can't discuss all time great jobbers without mentioning Bill & Randy Mulkey.

Can't forget about Barry O. Iron Mike Sharpe was my favorite, though. who else could have an injured wrist for 10 years?

I always had a soft spot for SD "Special Delivery" Jones, if just for the nickname alone.
Ooh, how about AJ Petruzzi and the Unpredictable Johnny Rodz?
And if we're bringing up NWA jobbers, how about George South and his sad little mustache?

Greatist tag team jobbers: Moondog Rex and Moondog Spot.
My personal favorite singles jobber was Steve Hunter (?) (I don't know if that was his exact name) But I remember watching him get beat up early on during Superstars of Wrestling, than later on in the show come out in a mask to get pummeled again. I wish I could remember what his masked name was.

I don't know if we can call the Moondogs jobbers. Didn't they actually hold the WWF tag belts for a while?

You are correct sir! The Moondogs were WWF tagteam champs from what appears to have been 3/17/81 to 7/21/81.

I missed out on that era of Moondog greatness and only got to see them in their later years when they were generally jobbing to the stars.
