The Worst Wrestlers Ever: Dale Wolfe

Call them ham 'n eggers, call them jobbers, or call them "wimpy guys," like we did when we were kids. Just don't call them winners.

The world of '80s and '90s pro wrestling was filled with matches in which accomplished superstars would pound the crap out of losers. In The Worst Wrestlers Ever, we shine the spotlight on the grapplers who just plain weren't any good.

First up: Dale Wolfe.

Famed for his permanent look of confusion and his poorly cut mullet, Dale Wolfe was one of the most prolific wrestlers of the WWF in the Hulk Hogan era. Too bad he never won. A respectful but fiesty competitor, Wolfe would often lose his cool after being slapped by the likes of Mr. Perfect or Ravishing Rick Rude.

Wolfe's defining moment came when he attempted to one-up the Hulkster by taking down the hated Sid Justice just prior to the highly anticipated Wrestlemania showdown between Hogan and Justice. (Assumedly. There was no on-screen reason given for the match between Sid and Dale.) Wolfe didn't get a single move or punch in before being decimated by Sid. After the match, while he was being stretchered out, Sid clotheslined him back to the floor, and that was pretty much the last time anybody ever saw Dale Wolfe.
