Fans want to see new talent in WWE, but for many of these wrestlers, that’s nothing but a pipe dream.
Fans want to see new talent in WWE, but for many of these wrestlers, that’s nothing but a pipe dream.

WWE is considered by most fans to be the top wrestling promotion in the world. It’s in that company that the athletes make the most money, travel to the most places, and reach the largest fan base. There’s a common saying among WWE fans and commentators: you haven’t truly made it in the wrestling business until you’ve wrestled for WWE.

That statement holds more merit nowadays than it ever has since WWE has reached the very top of the wrestling industry on the planet. The promotion that comes the closest to matching WWE is New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), yet their market is still very much domestic in nature.

But if it were all about the money and nothing else, then WWE’s roster would be composed of the very best on the entire planet...but they aren’t. Though WWE’s roster does indeed boast some truly impressive names, there are still plenty of wrestlers out there that have not performed for the world’s biggest promotion, nor do they have the intention of ever doing so.

Here are fifteen wrestlers that, for one reason or another, will never be seen in a WWE ring.


#15 Bad Luck Fale

He’s big, he’s menacing, he can talk...and he’s got job security in New Japan.

The "Underboss" of the Bullet Club fills a very important role in NJPW. As the token ‘foreign giant’ Fale is booked frequently to be the monster that the resident babyface Japanese wrestlers need to overcome. He does his job well, and people are usually impressed with his feats of mammoth strength, even if that comes at the cost of genuine grappling skill.

At 35 years old, Fale is getting up there in wrestling years, and thus a change of promotion wouldn’t work in his favour. Due to the relatively shorter stature of most of his co-workers, Fale has relative job security in his role as the super-heavyweight threat. But if he were to switch to WWE, this wouldn’t exist, as Fale would be surrounded by wrestlers that tower over him, like Braun Strowman, Kane and even Roman Reigns.

As a result, we shouldn’t expect "the Underboss" to leave NJPW, especially since there’s still plenty of money to be made as a member of the Bullet Club.
