10 Wrestlers That Visibly Hated Working For WWE

Tucker's WWE career can be stunningly well defined by three specific images.

The first is a genuinely heartwarming glimpse at what could have been - Heavy Machinery celebrating their first Monday Night Raw win in January 2019. They burst through the top and middle ropes and catch the centre of the lens as men with ambitions, hopes and dreams.

The final one is from April 2021, just a day after he was let go by the company following a non-event of a singles career. He's "making lemonade" on the golf course, instead of being made to suck lemons on Raw.

And speaking of that, the second of the three is the one above - there, he cuts a disparate figure with an updated look that hasn't really left him better or worse off, unlike the split from Heavy Machinery partner Otis, which doomed him for good.

The November 2nd 2020 Raw saw him beaten by Ricochet, despite the fact that 'The One & Only' can barely buy a win elsewhere. Wrestlers are often too job-scared to look as though they'd rather be anywhere else than WWE. He simply - and understandably - couldn't hide it.
