Re: Number 14
Most #14s are either dead or accomplished nothing/worse than nothing in their wrestling careers.
Here's the summarized list from Wrestlezone:
1988- Ron Bass. Never really accomplished much and retired shortly after.
1989- Marty Jannetty. No explanation needed.
1990- Haku. He didn't have too much bad luck, though his return in 2002(?) failed miserably.
1991- British Bulldog. Died young.
1992- Hercules. He looked like and for a little while was booked to be the next big thing but that fell through. Also died relatively young.
1993- The Bezerker. Never accomplished much, sells used cars now.
1994- Doink The Clown. Comedy/jobber.
1995- Jacob Blu. Don't think anyone even remembers this guy.
1996- Doug Gilbert. Got stuck with a stupid Freddy gimmick from the Friday 13th films, ended up breaking character to shoot on the company. Also one of Lawler's accusers.
1997- Goldust. One of the more well-off guys.
1998- Ken Shamrock. Returned to MMA after his WWF run and had a pretty bad record.
1999- Kurgan. A member of The Oddities, which says it all.
2000- Bob Backlund. A surprise entrant and had a great wrestling career, but was campaigning for a local mayor job or something. HE LOST.
2001- The Goodfather. Another one of the better off guys, never accomplished too much though.
2002- Diamond Dallas Page. Big name in WCW who was completely mis-booked in WWE.
2003- Eddie Guerrero. Dead.
2004- Rikishi. He was way over the hill at this point and was released not too long after.
2005- Orlando Jordan. Never really accomplished anything in WWE, had that really weird gimmick in TNA though...
2006- Joey Mercury. Was sort of the Jannetty to Nitro's HBK though obviously not completely on that same level. His return in the Straight Edge Society after he got his drug problems settled lasted about two weeks.
2007- Jeff Hardy. Don't think I need to add anything here.
2008- Umaga. Dead.
2009- Finlay. Worked backstage later on. Ended up the scapegoat after Miz was booked to interrupt the national anthem at a house show and so Finlay was fired.
2010- MVP. Another guy who could've been a big name. His move to RAW was awfully booked and he ended up leaving.
2011- Chris Masters. They wanted to make something of him the first time around until he was fired for Wellness Policy violations, then when he came back later they did absolutely nothing with him and surprise, he's gone.
2012- Jinder Mahal. Yeah.
