Athletic/Non Athletic Wrestlers
By Scott Keith on 18th October 2022
WWE a lot of times likes to talk about the athleticism of their wrestlers. My question is two-folded: which professional wrestler in your lifetime was deemed to be very athletic but was total crap in the ring?
Also, what wrestler do you think was as unathletic as you can get but was a great pro wrestler? Hope this question makes sense. Thanks.
Tom Magee was the gold standard of someone who was supposed to be a super-athlete but couldn't work a lick in the ring.
On the other end, Stan Hansen barely looked like he wanted to move but still had great matches with a variety of people even when he was nearly blind.
