10 WWE Wrestlers Who Are Having A Very, Very Bad 2020

It's bad to be The King...

The Millennial generation has a tendency to describe every year as the ‘worst year ever’, but 2020 is making a seriously substantial claim to that crown. 2016 might have had a lot of celebrity deaths, but did it have a quarter of the world’s population locked down as a virus takes the lives of millions? David Bowie, Alan Rickman and the rest were cool and all, but come on now.

Even in the fictional world of WWE, 2020 has been wretched. Pro wrestling exists purely for the paying audience, so what happens when there is no crowd? Everything sucks, that’s what. What was initially somewhat novel has quickly become tired, and WWE is suffering more than most. Creatively that is, the blood-sucking finances seem to be fine.

2020 hasn’t been awful for everyone. Drew McIntrye is WWE Champion, Edge has made his grand (okay, an overstatement) return to the ring, and Becky Lynch still hasn’t lost. But for every Celtic champion, there is a superstar who is going through a tough time, embarking on a 2020 that will almost certainly be remembered as a career-low. 2021 can’t come soon enough for these boys and girls.

Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
