Once upon a time, there was a pro wrestler who was given bright blue spandex tights and told to 'smile, no matter what' on his way and even in the ring. The announce team went on and on about his wrestling pedigree, and he racked up impressive wins but still, the WWE fans couldn't care less, and even voiced their displeasure with a chant of "Rocky Sucks".

That's right, the most popular wrestler in the history of, well, ever, started off as a total dud of a character. 3rd generation superstar Rocky Maivia failed to get over, but out of that failure, like a phoenix from the ashes rose The Rock.

Sometimes all a wrestler needs is a slight change in direction, or character, to get them to resonate with the tastes of an ever-fickle audience. Here are five wrestlers who need a new direction.

#1 Titus Worldwide

<p>

Titus Worldwide does not work, not even in the limited capacity in which it was intended. Apollo Crews is a top-tier athlete who dazzled audiences in NXT until he made his main roster debut and kind of fizzled. Titus O'Neil has a strong platform outside of wrestling but his career in the ring probably peaked with the Prime Time Players, and Dana Brooke should probably head back to NXT for some more polish.

In short, Titus Worldwide does nothing for any of those involved and a new direction might be needed for the entire faction.
