Default Jobbers Hall of Fame?

I know it may be a tad ironic but suppose there was a WWE Hall of Fame for notable jobbers. I can think of three that should be in it: Iron Mike Sharpe, Barry Horowitz and The Brooklyn Brawler. For humorous reasons these three stick out as notable long time jobbers. Iron Mike with that suspicious arm brace and his yelling, I laughed everytime Barry Horowitz would pat himself on the back during his entrance and the Brooklyn Brawler with his dirty and ripped up attire. Jobbers should have at least a bit of a gimmick and not be some forgotten local face. Who else comes to mind deserving to be inducted in a jobber Hall of Fame.

Duane Gill, forever know in Sweden as Lill-raggaren.



You might know him as Gillberg.

The greatest jobber in the history of professional wrestling was

ARNOLD SKAALAND



I don't believe that I ever saw Arnold win a match, yet he was a tremendous fan favorite. He would also be used as cannon fodder when they were building up some sort of drama.

(For example, when Buddy Rogers and Johnny Barend defeated Johnny Valentine and Cowboy Bob Ellis for the NWA U.S. Tag Team Championship Arnold substituted for Ellis in the first fall, because the Cowboy's "plane had been delayed." Rogers "broke" Arnold's leg with the Figure Four Leg Lock to win the first fall and allow Ellis to make a grand entrance in the second to save Valentine who was fighting alone after they carried Arnold out on a stretcher.)

Arnold was also the smartest jobber from a financial standpoint and used the money from his humiliations on the mat to buy a stake in the WWWF when Capitol Wrestling broke away from the NWA. He wound up being a silent owner in the WWWF, managed a number of wrestlers, and handled the bookings in upstate New York. He was also in charge of handling Andre the Giants contract.

It just goes to show you that winning isn't everything in pro-wrestling!



- Mike

Barry Horowitz to the hall of fame: HELL YES! YES! YES!

As a "jobber": HELL NO! NO! NO!

Heath Slater is likely moving into that territory.

But Horowitz was a jobber. I wouldn't be opposed if he was inducted in the actual WWE HOF. I think that would be cool.
