#4 Former WWE Superstar Viscera

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is known for his obsession with wrestlers who are visually big and strong. WWE usually portrays such wrestlers as huge monsters in the beginning, only to bury them later on. Viscera, or Big Daddy V, was no exception.

He initially competed in WWE as Mabel, and due to his incredible size, he was pushed by the company as a singles wrestler, which led to him being crowned the King of the Ring in 1995. To fit the royal gimmick, his name was changed to King Mabel.

King Mabel was then pushed as the top heel, and he received an opportunity at Kevin Nash's WWE Championship, but he never captured the title. Mabel was removed from the top card and was later released from the company.

After his return in 1998, he was repackaged as Viscera, and he adopted a gothic gimmick as a member of The Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness.

Although he captured the WWE Hardcore Championship and the Tag Team Championships, Viscera never acquired much success in WWE.

Once again, he was released by the company, and once more, he returned with a new character and underwent a name change as Big Daddy V in 2007. Despite all these different gimmicks, Viscera was able to get other stars over except himself.
