10 Best WWE Wrestlers Never To Main Event WrestleMania

So near, and yet so far.


On paper, the headline spot of WrestleMania is supposed to be reserved for the very cream of the WWE crop. Only the biggest and most popular performers are worthy of closing out the Show of Shows, declare the traditionalists.

And yet, casting a cursory eye down the list of wrestlers to have been afforded this privilege over the years, it is striking just how many of them aren't really all that great. Mr. T got top billing in the inaugural event, for example, with Lawrence Taylor following in his footsteps ten years later.

What we're getting at here is that any employees who worked for Vince McMahon for more than a couple of years and didn't manage to main event on the Grandest Stage of Them All have every right to feel aggrieved - particularly those who have gone down as some of the all-time best in the industry.

The good news is that, with eight-time main eventer Hulk Hogan now being airbrushed out of much of the highlight reel footage, there's a good chance that your under-card bout could be retrospectively elevated in his place.
