#2 Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff
Real Name: Paul Orndorff, Jr.
Career Accolades: Orndorff held the NWA North American heavyweight title several times, and won numerous regional titles in both singles and tag team divisions. He held the NWA/WCW World Television title, and was a two-time WCW World tag team champion (with Paul Roma). He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff was sort of a precursor to Hulk Hogan. He was fit, chiselled, and brawny, able to throw his opponents around with ease. Despite his strength, Orndorff would often utilize a scientific style, albeit with tons of cheating when he was working heel.
Why he never wore the WWE's big belt: Like many others, Orndorff was active in the WWE at the same time as Hulk Hogan, who held the title for five years. Orndorff would challenge the Hulkster for the title, but never actually defeated him for it.Published 29 Dec 2018, 18:42 IST
