157.  Paul Jones

Many wrestling fans got their first look at Paul Jones as the heel manager of an army of wrestlers in the NWA, but for years he was one of the top wrestlers in the Mid Atlantic and Florida regions winning multiple individual and tag team belts.  In the NWA promotions he wrestled in, he was a great utility man who could be used as a face, a heel, and any spot on the card.  Like many on this list he his handcuffed by his lack of WWE experience and that most of his in ring work was not seen by many of today’s generation.
