Yesterday, I made a list of the Top 5 Best Mic Workers in WWE Today. Now, I'm going to make a list of the Worst 5 Mic Workers in WWE Today:

5. Jack Swagger: Ever since Swagger debuted on ECW in 2008, he couldn't talk on the mic at all and couldn't cut a good promo so the fans didn't really care about him. I think the reason Zeb Colter is his manager is because Swagger can't talk on the mic so Colter is kind of like the one who speaks for Swagger.

4. Alberto Del Rio: Without Ricardo, this guy can't cut a good promo or gain heat. All of his promos is just him talking about it's his destiny to win so-and-so and the fans don't wanna see that because it keeps getting boring.

3. Kofi Kingston: Even though he is very good in the ring, this guy can't get the fans behind him because his promos are just so bad. I think these 4-8 months will give him a chance to work on his mic-skills.

2. Ryback: This guy has to be one of the worst mic workers in WWE.. He gains absolutely no heat. The only good promo he cut was when he explained why he attacked John Cena in April. That's it. Without the "Feed Me More" chants, Nobody cares about this guy because The "Feed Me More" chants is what got him over with the fans. Most of Ryback's promos is just him breathing and that's what makes him a terrible mic worker.

1. Curtis Axel: This guy seriously needs to work on his mic skills.. That "Genesis of McGillicutty" promo he cut on NXT 3 years ago was terrible. I think pairing him up with Paul Heyman is a good idea since Heyman is a master on the mic so he will make the fans care about Curtis Axel.

Who are your Top 5 Worst Mic Workers in WWE? Leave your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below!

Seen Big E on NXT don't think he is that bad on the mic. Think you are about right when it comes to guys we see on weekly tv but the guys on the roster that get no tv time are the worst ones on the mic.

He never really cuts a lot of promos on RAW and SD it's just him standing next to AJ so he doesn't really count.. but I saw some him of his promos from NXT and they are awful.

Axel number one? Give the man a break, he isn't fantastic but he definitely shouldn't be on this list. Besides, he has gotten a lot better since coming back to the main roster.

Keith, who do you think is the worst mic user in WWE?

For me, I really haven't got a clue lol as I rarely watch it as it is (as I don't have cable); but if I had to choose, it would probably be between Jack Ssswaggerpuss or Alberto del Rio.

My list would be a long one, because there is just that many... Here's some that have been given the opportunity to shine on the mic even if it was on NXT...

AJ Lee - Vicki 2.0 but even worse at acting
Randy Orton - boring since day 1
Brad Maddox - no charisma
Ziggler - always needs a mouthpiece
Lesnar -...

That's why they have Heyman cut the promos for him. The worst thing about hearing Lesnar talk on the mic is his voice.. Doesn't fit his personality at all.

All of you that cap on Cena are as dull as you think Cena is. Get over it!! Everybody has a job to do, and Cena is good at what he does. You don't have to to like him or even cheer for Him but spare the rest of your continual notching about him. It is boring!!
