Probably weighing in at 150 pounds soaking wet and standing a liberal 5'9 a piece, it is still a mystery to me that out of the hundreds of wrestlers to come through the area to be "enhancement" wrestlers, these guys got a manager, and from what I remember never even got close to a token victory.

Most longtime CWA jobbers would pick up a win from time to time, but not Rough and Ready.

So there you have it, your first tag team.
Wasn't there another tag team who never won and lost all their charm after winning their first match in territories?

Brooklyn Brawler gets his name dropped so often he's not even worth mentioning anymore imo.
OK, going to check out a few of Barry Horowitz matches to see how good he was. Any suggestions?

Of course Barry Horowitz was an awesome jobber, however Jack Hart his alter-ego was a title winner and contender in Florida and Memphis. He was actually the NWA Florida champion, and had about a five year career as a main eventer in the territories.

But no argument here, Hart as "Horowitz" was certainly a jobber. The WWF was notorious in that era for not allowing "enhancement" to have any personality so guys like Grizzly Smith because he had a nickname, or Horowitz because he would pat his own back, were seen as more special than the base level jobbers. It was almost like in 88 and 89 that the WWF had different level jobbers. Of course by 93 or so they began to actually bring in former territory stars to be enhanced jobbers that won their own enhancement matches on occasion against the low level jobbers, guys like Goon, Freddie Joe Floyd, TL Hopper and others. So Horowitz was one of the guys the WWF built their jobbing style of the 90's around. What a trendsetter he was.

Re: The (un) Official Jobber Hall of Fame

Brooklyn Brawler came to mind straight away before I even opened this thread ha

Barry Horowitz is a good one, however what about Louis Spicolli?

Also, I have to give Stan Stansky a mention due to Kaitlyn's praise of him lol

Watch this Rick Martel 'Hall Of Fame' nomination video including lots of facts and quotes from other WWE superstars all behind his long overdue induction.



Come on Vince .... it's time!

RE: The Mulkeys

I had a thread on here about them a few months back. Jobber tag team that never won a match for the longest time. The fans started to like them for it. They won their first match and it killed the charm they had as the lovable losers.

Besides the Mulkeys, I'd like to nominate Frankie Williams, SD Jones, Johnny Rodz, and Jose Louis Rivera.

This could be an interesting comedic gimmick today. Did he ever get a win?
