10 Wrestlers That Visibly Hated Working For WWE

8. Paul Heyman

Kane And Sting

Paul Heyman's facepalm as brilliantly captured by WWE cameras in 2006 should be as meme'd as Patrick Stewart's for how incredibly potent it is.

The sheer audacity of Vince McMahon's treatment of this product - and by extension Heyman himself - is just about the only reason to go back and watch as much as a second of December To Dismember 2006. It's certainly easy to see why the former Philadelphia head honcho got the f*ck out of the system for half a decade afterwards.

The bootstraps architect of everything ECW's initials came to stand for was made to watch as a rash billionaire designer of some completely different buildings bulldozers his vision, and that was just the main event. Much like his pre-match promo ahead of CM Punk and RVD getting flattened for the good of the Bobby Lashley cause, Heyman couldn't mask his real life contempt for the kayfabe developments.
