Default Who had the most disappointing WWE career

In reference to one's time in WWE, who do you think left the most to be desired?

I have a few candidates to get conversation going.

Wade Barrett - With the recent announcement of his parting ways with WWE, you have to take a look back at Wade Barrett. He was a massively over heel as the leader of Nexus and got buried by Cena. He was massively over as Bad News Barrett and got hurt. King Barrett got hurt. Waking up to piss in the morning Barrett for hurt. Rehabbing Barrett got hurt...etc.

Barrett had the look, great mic skills, and worked the WWE "main event style." He could easily be the Bond villain type heel that could lead a stable. When he debuted, I saw nothing but titles and the Hall of Fame in his future. Unfortunately, he's spent more time on the table than in the ring.

Craig Morgan - This guy is Vince MacMahon's wet dream. A big guy who could move. He just could not communicate. He should have been a Paul Heyman guy. He did better in TNA where he was allowed to grow a little.

Ric Flair - Yes, I'm serious. Flair was the leader of the Horsemen. In WWE, he was HHH's lackey. He was used as a comedy act that ruined his legacy. His first run was OK in the early 90's, but without Hogan around, he never got traction. His later runs were memorable for his loss to HBK and now, as lackey to his daughter. Comparing his matchups in NWA/WCW with Rhodes, Race, Steamboat, and Sting to his time in WWE is upsetting. He was buried from day one by Vince as a bif "Fuck You" to NWA fans.

Ron Simmons - See above. He wa s aworld champion in WCW. WWE buried him because he talked too Southern and looked too black.This recent nostalgia tour is completely bogus. JBL is the only person, Simmons had a clean pin of Vader when Vader was unbeatable back in the day, and as soon as he came to WWE he was stuck in an IC level stable, fed to the Rock as fodder, and stuck in a tag team. He got to be involved as an ancillary character in the Corporate Ministry angle, and then was relegated to the second man in a tag team. When the Dudleys, Hardyz, and E&C were main eventing, Simmons was a comedy act.

I'm sure we can come up with more.
