157. Dick Hutton
Former three time NCAA Champion, Dick Hutton became the NWA World Heavyweight Champion defeating the great Lou Thesz in 1957.  Dick Hutton was a technical master but in the televised age of wrestling was ill equipped to deal with the personalities that came with it.  He may have been World Champion, but remains one of the most forgotten ones ever. 

Still, anyone who was an NWA Champion in the television era is a candidate worth considering.
