45. Junkyard Dog

Era: '80s

Did you know there are critics out there who actually believe that wrestling has some racism in its past? Can you imagine that? Wrestling promoting negative stereotypes of minorities? I mean just look at the Junkyard Dog—a pioneer for black wrestlers and arguably the most popular WWE star to never hold a title. He wore good lookin' trunks with a simple yet powerful phrase across the buttocks: "Thump." And he wore a beautiful lock and chain around his neck at all times. Did I mention that he never held the title despite his immense popularity? Wait—this actually seems mad racist. -PR
