The history of WWE is full of characters that fans may have forgotten. Not every performer that comes through the WWE ranks has a memorable look, and as a result it is unsurprising that the existence of Eric Escobar or DJ Gabriel may slip through the collective memory of the WWE Universe.
Some characters don't even get a look however - quite literally. They are forever destined to be spoken of but never seen. Some of these were integral parts of other characters, some even ran the entire show, but all of them remained invisible to the eyes of the fans. Their names rang around arenas, but there was never a face to put to the moniker.
These are five WWE characters that we never actually saw. Was that for the better? That is subjective - although some things are certainly best left to the imagination.
Heidenreich is best left forgotten. The big man has gone down in the books as one of the worst in-ring performers in company history, a sentence that isn't an exaggeration in the slightest. Not even the magic hand of Paul Heyman could turn the Heidenreich ship around - although Curtis Axel, Ryback, and Cesaro may also speak against the benefits of being a Paul Heyman Guy.
Whilst Heidenreich is mostly remembered for seemingly sexually assaulting Michael Cole, he is also remembered for his initial insanity gimmick. During this time Heidenreich frequently spoke to no one in particular and claimed to be controlled by an unseen entity called 'Little Johnny'.
The angle was quickly dropped and Heidenreich was sent back to developmental. Little Johnny was never seen, but it has emerged since that he was supposed to be Heidenreich's inner child, a lost soul growing up in a children's hospital.
Bray Wyatt defeated John Cena in a cage match thanks to the creepy singing of another Little Johnny, but these two were not related. Or at least that's what they want us to think...
