Out of place wrestlers

 Slightly different tack, but something mentioned in the NWA thread: Eddie Kingston really doesn't look or sound like he belongs there. His overall character is just so out of keeping with the retro, family-friendly aesthetic; he looks, behaves, and sounds more like he should be in MLW or AEW. The only way he might fit in is if he was portrayed as being the "dangerous" or "edgy" guy on the roster, but he's just put across as an urban tough guy. It's massively out of place because the other tough guy characters are all comparatively toned down in terms of language and mannerism.

This is a bit of a random one, but Kid Kash felt very out of place in WWE. He was never really given much of a character, yet still became Cruiserweight Champion. It felt really odd to see him there and sure enough his stint was relatively short lived.

I used to really like his Velocity fodder tag team with Jamie Noble. But yeah, he was very different to ECW Kid Kash.

Furnas & LaFon always seem out of place to me whenever I watch some old WWE back. At the time WWE were in that odd place where they were embracing dafter gimmicks and slowly transitioning to what would eventually become Attitude, these two boring bastards stood out like a sore thumb.
