Foley wasn't a jobber during the Attitude Era. He was one of the most popular main eventers of the whole decade. A jobber is a wrestler who gets beaten in 2 minutes, week after week.

Yeah, if we're stretching jobber to mean "Someone who has lost matches" then we're talking about everyone ever in wrestling is a jobber.

Yeah, what could be interesting would be a thread like "Who was the best at getting other people over". Make the thread Redman....

 

If you want to talk about who the best "jobber" is you're talking about who went out and lost consistently all the time in which case the only real contender is the Brooklyn Brawler with a possible mention of Barry Horrowitz.

This can be the thread, its closer to what he meant in his OP anyway.

 

So talk about any kind of jobbing or jobbers you like.

??? It sounds good to me because it was basically what I meant anyways. The fact is though Foley could have not been there.. Edited by 3BigDen

One of the most infamous jobs to me was 123 kid over razor ramon. I remember when it happened even as a kid myself it was huge news for the time.

Define infamous? Kind of makes it sound like a screw job. It was a pretty big rub from Hall though, I'll give you that, Razor probably wasn't much hotter than at that point as well (as Razor Ramon that is).

 

In the same vein Cena V Jericho feud from 2002

Been where?

 

In the wwe during the attitude era. I don't believe it would have turned out the same way it did.

I guess memorable would be a better word to describe it its easily one of the biggest moments in the first few years of raw.

I disagree, Foley was part of some of the most definitive matches/moments in the attitude era, it would definitely not have been the same without him.

Still though, Foley isn't really a jobber in any sense of the word. Even before WCW and WWE he was pretty big in Japan on the death match scene. I'd have said Foley spent more of his career "winning" than putting people over.

I agree but foley lost Alot to get certain people to the status they needed. Bossman jobbed but didn't have the same credibility as Foley to ultimately get a star were they needed.

I don't think so, not really. Like Jimmy said "everyone" jobs to someone at some point and I don't think Foley has "made" that many careers though he's a highlight in lots of them.

 

Bossman is a good shout though, he was always fairly over with the crowds but definitely fits the "jobber to the stars" catagory of people who generally lost to the stars to make them look good.
