10) Charlie Haas as Beth Pheonix
Charlie Haas was one of the brightest young talents in the WWE when he teamed up with Shelton Benjamin to form the ‘World’s Greatest Tag Team’. After some initial success, both men parted ways to forge a solo career. Shelton found good success in his singles career whereas Haas had a contrasting one.
