Despite everything going on with the RAW Women's and WWE Universal Championship, the hottest story in the WWE right now may be #KofiMania, and after stealing the show 2 weeks in a row on Smackdown and Elimination Chamber, it's clear that he should win the WWE Championship in the near future.

The WWE have booked that match for Fastlane, but they'd be silly to not put the Championship on him at WrestleMania. This has also gotten us thinking about other stars to not win the big one.

Over the years, the WWE have had all of the best performers in the world, and because of that, not all of them have been able to win the WWE Championship, but some definitely stand out above the rest.

From charismatic legends to athletic, technical performers, these are the 5 greatest performers in WWE history to never win the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship.

#5 Jake 'The Snake' Roberts

When talking about promos, most people look to the likes of Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Dusty Rhodes (with very good reason), but one man that is often forgotten about is Jake Roberts. He wasn't over the top with his facials or didn't have marketable catch-phrases, but Jake had a cadence like no other, and he managed to always get his message across in a concise, calm manner, and it was incredibly unique.

His matches weren't always the best, but he told great stories, and with his python Damien by his side, the WWE Universe couldn't look away when he was in the ring.

His life took a major spiral towards the end of his wrestling career, and that may be why he was never on top, but he's thankfully got that sorted now, and his legacy will be one of a great performer in all phases of wrestling, something you don't see as often in the modern day.
