Wrestling Jobber Definition

@FanSidedDDT Ah ok. Well, Ambrose is hardly a jobber, but he certainly loses far too many times for his quality. Brock`s match is fine (1/2) Some other wrestlers avoid “paying their dues” as jobbers because they are real fighters who have gained prestige in unscripted sports competitions: the term “jobber” has also crept into other genres, especially superhero comics and animated fight series, in terms of when a character loses a fight against an enemy, to show how strong the enemy was and therefore a credible threat to the Hero. A “jobber” is a term that WWE fans will continue to debate and label the one they think fits the role. Just make sure you don`t refer to your colleagues as such. The revelation that professional wrestling is predestined has caused jobbing to lose a lot of stigma. In fact, many “Smarks” will respect a wrestler who is disinterested enough to systematically overtake another wrestler for the benefit of the company. Some of the best wrestlers in the industry (Mick Foley, Ric Flair, etc.) take great pride in their ability to “make” another guy through sales and jobbing, although few would call them “jobbers.” This terminology arose because losing the match tends to make the wrestler worse and could be a sign that promotion puts him in a less important role (“buried” in wrestling jargon). This is especially true if he is reserved to lose in a championship match (because there is no other place but to lose after a rivalry for the top championship) or to be crushed. But they finish the game and let the other guy nail them as agreed, because that`s part of the job.

@FanSidedDDT the current definition could be thrown at social outcasts, you know they`re going to lose, but all of them are good enough to @FanSidedDDT more. NXT uses guys who are “currently in the ring” and who are closest to a jobber in the modern WWE @FanSidedDDT, Iron Mike Sharpe, Barry Horowitz, Brooklyn Brawler. Jobbers make other talent look strong WWE Legal Filing defines a jobber: “. temporary wrestler mainly used as an accessory if necessary … pic.twitter.com/uEctxlHiJs In every competition, there are winners and losers. In professional wrestling, the vast majority of them have been predestined since at least 1920. Fans and insiders refer to being on the losing side of the equation as “doing the job” or “jobbing” for short. A related term, “jabroni”, was used during kayfabe`s days on screen as a slang term for weak or poor wrestlers, and as a way to display jobbers without admitting that matches were scripted, and is still used occasionally today. For years, the term “jobber” has often been used by fans, all of whom have different interpretations of the word. Some believe that when a wrestler takes a clean pin, he “works” to his opponent. Others have seen it as when a wrestler constantly loses. The role can also be seen as an improvement talent, or someone who gets time in the ring, but their goal is to “on” the person they are working with.

Not everyone on the WWE list can carry Main Event status. It`s a strange and complex food chain that`s always on the move, and deep down you`ll find poor schlubs whose fate in life is convincingly losing to the big guys. Once upon a time, it was the “improvement talents”, but we kind of stopped being so friendly with our nomenclature. We know them today as jobbers, and as neglected as they can sometimes be, they are quite important in the early stages of creating a push for a new talent. Sometimes even jobbers get up and grab the elusive brass ring, although Cesaro`s existence tells us that this ring is probably somewhere in a bunker, guarded by a password you only know if you`re related to The Rock. SummerSlam is fast approaching, and there are more than a few exciting matches on this year`s map. AJ Styles vs. John Cena. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor. Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton.

WWE pulls out the big guns for its big events, and SummerSlam is second only to WrestleMania in terms of importance. Casual wrestling fans – of which you may be a part – will be listening. But if you`re a casual fan and you see the PPV with hardcore wrestling fans, you might be confused by their language. You probably use all kinds of insider slang terms. For decades, hardcore wrestlers and fans have used these terms to keep their business island and secret, away from the general knowledge and curious curiosity of the public. The “Mr. LoGrasso” mentioned here is Vito LoGrasso, who you may remember either as an Italian thoroughbred or as the Smackdown guy who occasionally wrestled in a dress. The full legal submission (which can be found here) is a lot to deal with, but it`s essentially a compilation of the biggest hits of jobbers suing WWE for damages. Do you remember the trial of Luther Reigns, Ryan Sakoda and Russ McCullough? It`s here too.

It`s a bit cruel to think that someone who has worked for years to excel in their craft may end up being classified as a living accessory, but I guess that`s the nature of the animal. The least you can do is try to imitate the dignity of The Brooklyn Brawler, the legitimate and eternal king of jobbers. In a recent rumor article, we reported how Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho would face off at WrestleMania before plans changed. One comment left by one reader, in his opinion, referred to Ambrose having “worked” with some of his recent opponents. An article on the Inquisitor also considered the Lunatic Fringe a “jobber”. Some long-standing jobbers have acquired a cult. The most famous jobber would probably be the Brooklyn Brawler, which had its own action figure. The second best-known example would be Barry Horowitz, who briefly went from eternal jobber to mid-card in the mid-90s when he took an upset victory over Chris Candido (then as a skip) and then beat him in at least two more matches. He is now a WWE highway agent. But for those who are not familiar with the world of professional wrestling, there is finally a clear legal definition for jobbers. Straight out of the legal acts of WWE, the last sentence of this page makes things crystal clear.
