    2014 Biggest Fall From Grace Of The Year - Ongoing Discussion

    Which wrestlers have fallen down the card this year?

    Re: 2014 Biggest Fall From Grace Of The Year - Ongoing Discussion

    Some potential names from my limited watching:

    - Big E (What has he even been doing for the past few months?)
    - Damien Sandow (Remember when he seemed like he was going to win a World Title?)
    - Fandango (The hottest thing in the company for a cup of tea in 2013)
    - Ryback (May be a better one for 2013?)

    Big E is a good shout, tho supposedly the New Nation is actually coming so we'll see.

    Sandow is probably the best pick

    Chris Hero jumps out at me as an indy guy who could win this, although Jim makes good suggestions.

    Cesaro was the hottest shit in the world at Wrestlemania and now he's like... nothing.

    I think he's taken the biggest tumble this year alone. Sandow, Fandango, etc were already on the way down. Though Sandow's fall still breaks my heart because he's so fucking talented and he should have been a made man after that match with Cena.

Good shout-out.

    A tongue-in-cheek shout out to Punk, who went from one of the best in the world to a quitter who isn't involved in wrestling now

    I didn't give a reason because it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out this is his fucking award right now.

    Yeah, the guy as you said was in the WHC picture for nearly the whole 2013. He entered 2014 with a high profile feud against Batista (okay, maybe not high profile, but still huge to be the guy chosen for Batista's return). He scrambled around the mid card after wards, had good match quality, got fired, and is making a plea against the WWE right now.

    He doesn't really qualify as a fall from grace because he's gone from being a lackey in TNA to a champion in New Japan, but on a personal level, no professional wrestler has gone down in my estimation more than Doc/Luke Gallows this year. I used to think he was really good and was let go too soon from the WWE, but he has proven himself to be terrible.

    Isn't he like the #1 babyface in AAA now though?

    And?

    Besides he pretty much made him look a bit unprofessional by calling out an entire company FROM another company's event.

    Well, I'd argue he's more relevant and being talked about than he had been in years. If he really is AAA's new top guy, that's a pretty nice improvement over being lost in the shuffle like he had been earlier this year or stuck in the World Heavyweight Title division that was really just the midcard division.

    I highly doubt his "relevancy" right now rivals his relevancy before his release. Maybe equally. Being a top guy for AAA doesn't really seem as big as you make it out to be.

    EVERYONE is talking about Del Rio at this moment though. When was the last time Del Rio was one of the hottest topics in wrestling?

    The Del Rio talk has kind of died down to me.

    For all of 2 weeks. And that has more to do with the fact that he is a fresh WWE release. Had he transitioned from CMLL to AAA as Dos Caras Jr without his stint in WWE, I doubt seriously that he'd be their #1 face at all. AAA is the Mexican TNA. But you are right in that him not being a candidate, as he is clearly in better shape now than last year.

    My pick, I want to say, is Cesaro.

    Sandows fall from grace happened last year so while his fall has been steeper than Cesaro's, I am not even sure if he even qualifies.

    Del Rio's a terrible candidate for the reasons stated by Jim already. He's arguably more relevant the last month than he was the last year and a half and there's a pretty darn good chance he's going to go over the company if they actually take him to court. His situation is 100% better than what it was January 1st of this year, and will be come January 1st of 2015. That's not a fall from grace.

    My vote would go to Rey company-wise since I can't think of a worse position to be in than someone who's desperately trying to get fired but can't. Talk about nuclear heat between Rey and WWE.

    Would probably go with Cesaro otherwise, simply because the ship had already sailed on Sandow sadly by the time 2014 rolled around. At least he's on tv every week now. Cesaro was actually getting pushed unlike these other guys and now he's...not.

    I think it's hard to rival cesaro being the hottest thing coming out of mania with that babyface pop turning into a jobber to jack swagger. Shame because he's so fucking good too.
