Now a days it seems like many of the WWE Superstars have held gold at least once during their time with the company. Rarely seen Michael McGillicutty is a former tag team champion, as is jobber to the legends Heath Slater. In a previous life, Tensai held the WWE Intercontinental title.
Things are much different now than they were 25 years ago. Hulk Hogan ruled the WWF World title scene, holding the belt for more than four years. Honky Tonk Man and Randy Savage both had lengthy runs as IC champ. Demolition, the Hart Foundation, and the British Bulldogs were at the top of the tag team scene. There was no U.S. title or a second world heavyweight title. I think had some of the men I'm about to list were around in today's WWE, they would have all won some title along the way. But these are five guys who never held any sort of gold in their tenure with the WWF.

|Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Lawrence Taylor|
|Jake the Snake Roberts|
There were other choices that I did not go with intentionally for the list, like Harley Race and Dusty Rhodes. When both men arrived in the WWF, they were nearing the end of their respective careers, and a title run would not have added anything to their legacy. Although the young mark in me wanted to see a Hulk Hogan-Dusty Rhodes world title match. I don't know why...
Others I considered for the list included King Kong Bundy, Big John Studd, and Lex Luger. Who would you have added to the list? Post here or on Facebook.
