10. Zack Ryder, Debut at April 21st, 2005 Zack Ryder made his first WWE appearance back in 2005 as a jobber who took on Matt Morgan before he went on to debut on the main roster a few years later. Zack Ryder is mostly a forgotten member of the WWE roster but has somehow managed to remain contracted to the company now for more than 12 years even though he has mostly been seen as a jobber by the WWE Universe. Ryder is currently part of SmackDown Live and was actually able to win the Intercontinental Championship last year at WrestleMania 32, a title he held for less than 24 hours when he was defeated by The Miz the following night on Raw. Luck doesn’t seem to be on Zack’s side as it seems that just as The Hype Bros were about to be pushed towards Tag Team Championships, Zack had a knee injury and his partner Mojo Rawley went on to win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale without him. Zack is back now and even though he hasn’t been seen for a while, hopefully, WWE have something good planned for the team’s eventual split. 9. Jamie Noble, Debut at December 17th, 2005 He is a former Cruiser-weight Champion in his own right and actually made his official WWE debut back in 2005 as part of Velocity. He was also once seen as a member of The Authority under Seth Rollins‘ reign back in 2015 when he was joined by Joey Mercury and the duo formed J and J security. Jamie Noble hasn’t been on WWE TV since July 2015 when he was beaten at the hands of Brock Lesnar but it seems that his real skills are seen every week on Monday Night Raw as he works behind the scenes with WWE now as a producer. Noble was seen in Raw when Finn Balor and Bray Wyatt were seen brawling backstage and he often makes appearances when the WWE needs him to be an extra, but it seems that Noble’s days as a wrestler are now over and he is now comfortable sitting behind the camera instead. 8. Mark Henry, Debut at March 11th, 1996 Mark Henry was known as a weight lifter and as The World’s Strongest Man before he signed for WWE back in 1996 and somehow Henry has found a way to remain relevant as part of the company for more than 20 years. Henry still pursued a career in Strongman competitions alongside his WWE career and was last seen as the strongest man in the world back in 2002, something that he has used to his advantage throughout his WWE career. Henry is a former World Champion, European Champion and ECW Champion but it seems that the WWE Championship has always been the title that has eluded him. Rumours recently suggest that Henry has decided to retire from WWE following his lengthy career, and Henry even stated on the latest edition of Table for Three that he was retiring from in-ring competition and will instead be working backstage as a producer. 7. Randy Orton, Debut at April 25th, 2002 Randy Orton made his debut in WWE 15 years ago and has since become one of the biggest stars the company has ever had. Orton became the youngest ever World Champion when he broke Brock Lesnar’s record at SummerSlam back in 2004 and if it wasn’t for his problems with prescription drugs a few years into his WWE career, he would have easily had a career to rival one of his biggest rivals, John Cena. He recently won The Royal Rumble for the second time and then managed to win the WWE Championship for an incredible 13th time back at WrestleMania 33 when he defeated former friend Bray Wyatt, who had only won the title back at Elimination Chamber. Orton is still a main part of the SmackDown Live roster and battles Rusev this weekend at SummerSlam after officially coming out of the WWE Championship picture when he lost a Punjabi Prison match at Battleground. 6. The Big Show, Debut at February 14th, 1999 The Big Show hasn’t always been a favourite of the WWE Universe, but over the past few years he has proved that he is dedicated to the wrestling business and was even able to lose a lot of weight and then gain a lot of muscle earlier when there were rumours that Big Show would go on to face Shaquille O’Neal at WrestleMania 33, but the match never happened in the end. 5. Natalya, Debut at July 2007 Natalya has been an integral part of the Women’s Division on both Raw and SmackDown for a number of years. Natalya is the only third generation female wrestler that WWE has ever employed and the only female graduate of the Hart Family dungeon. Natalya is a former Divas Champion in her own right and has the opportunity to win the Women’s Championship this Sunday at SummerSlam, but considering she has been part of WWE now for more than a decade, it seems that she doesn’t have a lot to show for herself for the past ten years. Many fans have been quite outspoken about the fact that Natalya hasn’t been given the opportunities she deserves over the past few years even though she has been a main part of Total Divas for the past four years, which has opened a lot more doors for her alongside the main stars, Nikki and Brie Bella. 4. Kane, Debut at October 5th, 1997 Kane was brought into WWE as the brother of The Undertaker and the man who would finally be able to make an impact against the Phenom known as The Deadman after seven years of hell as part of WWE. Kane won his first World Championship on WWE the following year at King of the Ring 1998 and played a pivotal role in WWE throughout the Attitude Era. Kane is one of very few WWE stars who have matches that were made for him specifically. Kane has an Inferno Match, which shows his love of fire and is one of the most brutal WWE matches in history since the aim is to set your opponent on fire. Incredibly Kane has won 23 Championships over the past 20 years in WWE and even though he’s on hiatus from WWE right now as he pursues a career in politics, it is thought that Kane will be back to pick up where he left off in a WWE ring in the future. 3. John Cena, Debut at June 27th, 2002 John Cena is perhaps the best-known WWE star in the company right now and the undisputed face of WWE, but it didn’t start out like this for Cena. John wasn’t seen as a future star by Triple H or Vince McMahon in his early years and was forced to prove that he wasn’t another wrestler with a great physical presence and no actual talent. Over the past 15 years Cena has proved that he was much more than that and as well as making history as a 16-time World Champion, Cena has only been defeated clean on WWE TV three times in the past decade and has even managed to create a successful career as an actor, rapper and reality star outside of WWE. Cena has defied all the odds in WWE and even though it seems that retirement from the company is in the future for Cena, he will always return to the company when he’s needed because wrestling means so much to him that he wouldn’t ever be able to walk away from the company for good. 2. Triple H, Debut – April 30th, 1995 Triple H has been raising The Game in the wrestling world ever since 1995. He has gone through many phases as a WWE star, from Hunter Hurst Helmsley to Triple H, to The King of Kings, The Game and numerous other characters that the 14-time World Champion has been known as over the last two decades. Triple H is now considered to be a part-time star in WWE since he is the COO of the company and works backstage down in NXT with many of the company’s developmental talents. Triple H is still able to perform at WrestleMania every year and is able to be included in rivalries on WWE TV despite the fact that he doesn’t usually wrestle on WWE TV anymore. Triple H was once seen as the measuring stick of WWE and over the past few years, his knowledge of the company has allowed him to turn NXT into a phenomenon of its own, proving that he has always had a talent for the business despite rumours that stated otherwise. 1. The Undertaker, Debut at November 22nd, 1990 The Undertaker has been part of WWE now for almost 27 years. He once had the longest undefeated streak at WrestleMania, that began on his birthday back at WrestleMania 7 and has spanned more than two decades. Undertaker has been a star that many members of the WWE Universe have grown up with, and despite the fact that he walked away from WWE at WrestleMania 33 following his loss to Roman Reigns, without an official announcement, Undertaker isn’t considered to have retired yet. Many of the WWE Universe refuse to believe that Undertaker has left the company until there is a WrestleMania and The Deadman doesn’t appear. Undertaker is a seven-time World Champion which is incredible since Taker’s career was never really about Championships, and he was able to win The Royal Rumble back in 2007. It will be interesting to see if Taker appears at WrestleMania 34, and if he doesn’t, it will be the first WrestleMania WWE have produced without Taker since WrestleMania 16.
