Sometimes, there are wrestlers who have had many chances at winning the heavyweight title, but come up short time and time again.

Who are some of the WWF/WWE stars that you remember usually failing to win the WWE Championship/World Heavyweight Championship?

(It can be guys that later did win it, BTW)

Three guys that came to mind for me:

1. Kane- Until he cashed in at the MITB PPV, the Big Red Machine usually went bankrupt in title matches on PPV.

Between the 1998 King of the Ring and the MITB PPV, he was involved in many title matches on PPV, but never came out with the gold.

2. Big Show- Except for the 1999 and 2002 Survivor Series, he has also blown many a PPV title match.

3. Chris Benoit- Before he finally won gold at WrestleMania XX, I thought he was going down that same road as a PPV title match choker.

Jericho was like that before and even after the Undisputed Title (although he did win the WCW title beforehand).

Jeff Hardy was also like this for a good long while. And they kept trying to force Edge into the main event scene before he did the MitB thing.

It felt like Batista was losing a world title match at every PPV for like six years.
Batista was in the main event for the title for like six years lol

To add to the OP list, HBK, after he came back of course. He was always just thrown in the title matches when they needed a for sure good match.

Batista sticks out the most because it sticks out like a sore thumb. Batista's presence wasted the main event for far too long, he always lost the same way, and his feuds were always about getting back "his" title. His departure from WWE was more than just one breath of fresh air, to be quite certain.
