386. Tony Anthony
While the run of Tony Anthony in the WWE as T.L. Hopper and Uncle Cletus was not exactly stellar, “The Dirty White Boy” had a long and prosperous career as a single and in tag teams throughout the America South.  Perhaps his best run was in Smoky Mountain Wrestling where he was the promotion’s Heavyweight Champion three times.
