- The official WWE website has published an article highlighting eight past and present WWE Superstars “who weren’t supposed to make it.”
“Then there is another breed of WWE Superstar, altogether. These are the Superstars for whom WWE glory was anything but a given. For a variety of reasons — ranging from health setbacks to unfair stigmas — these Superstars were, at one point or another, cast aside and written off “unlikely,” writer John Clapp states. “Determined to prove themselves, these underdogs and overachievers refused to quit, no matter what the naysayers said. They all have unique stories, and the trajectories of their careers are far from ordinary. These are the Superstars who shouldn’t have made it.”
Those listed include Daniel Bryan, Tommy Dreamer, The Miz, Mikey Whipwreck, William Regal, Zach Gowen, Steve Blackman and Mick Foley.
