I gotta go with Mr. timeslot, big chin, Mr. Car Collector, Lettermen's evil rival, none other than, Jay LENO.
Jay Leno "graced" the WCW with his presence. haha NOT
^^^ hit link
Leno competed @ WCW's Road Wild, as the Main Event!
Talk about sloppy and desperate, WCW looked both! Watching paint dry is more fun.

Leno was bad but at least he was brought in to face another celebrity as part of the tag-team match main event at Road Wild (Jay loves motorcycles and was in Sturgis, ND for the rally held there every year anyway).
My first choice actually held the WCW HW Title.
That's right folks, David Arquette the "actor" (DA for short).
It started out OK with DA making some appearances on Nitro to promote "Ready to Rumble". the bad wrestling movie he co-starred in and WCW helped produce. I have no problem with WCW using DA to promote the film since at least half their roster at the time apeared in the movie. BUT WCW didn't stop there, OH NO!!!
DA went on to pin Eric Bischoff for the HW Title in a tag match in which the Champ, Diamond Dallas Page was DA's partner. I know it makes no sense and I don't have near the space to explain that mess. All ya need to know is that Vince Russo booked this, so what came next is NO surprise to anyone. In the ultimate swerve, DA turned on Page and handed the title to the heels (Jeff Jarrett I believe).
My next pick 'graced' TNA rings, sort of. But he was only allow to make it rain during his matches (due to NFL contractual obligations).

"Don't touch me!" .. lmao
my next pick...
Not Goldberg, but Gillberg...
The troll version of Goldberg was absolutely horrible in the ring, but damn, it sure was funny.

What do you do when you're suspended for a year by the NFL?
Why try to wrestle in TNA of course!
Just one BIG problem. Packman Jones' NFL contract forbade any physical contact inside a wrestling ring.
So you would think that would be the end of that plan, wouldn't you? TNA didn't think so.
They brought Packman Jones in anyway and put him in a tag team with R-Truth. They even won the belts. However, the only thing Packman did for each match was stand on the ring apron and distract their opponents and sometimes the referee by making it rain. Ya know, cause he wasn't allowed to do anything or he would be in violation of his NFL contract. All of this made his NFL team at the time the Titians very unhappy. Cause ya see, part of the reason Packman was suspended was because he made it rain at a nightclub which lead to shots being fired and a bouncer getting paralyzed. So making fun of that wasn't really a very bright idea. Thankfully, the Titians made Packman's wrestling career, such as it was come to a quick end.
My last choice is a self-appointed ambassador to North Korea who stunk it up in WCW and TNA rings plus on a celebrity wrestling reality show.

the Giant Gonzalez..
R.I.P to the big fella, but he made Great Khali look like Rey Mysterio Jr. lmao
Intimidating presence, for sure, but the only cool thing he did was the "flair chops" to his opponents, while they were in the turnbuckle corner.
The guy was brought in to WCW by Ted Turner, he had no "rastlin" experience, and played professional basketball. haha

My last choice is Dennis Rodman.
Rodman is friends with Hulk Hogan and Bischoff. So Rodman joined the NWO and wrestled if you could call it that in WCW rings in the mid to late 90's. You'd think the NBA's best rebounder would move well in a wrestling ring but no he didn't. Slow and prodding and not in a good way. His matches were just horrible.
Remember Rodman is friends with Hogan and Bischoff so Hogan brought him into TNA when he and Bischoff took over as it's figure heads/GMs a few years ago. Unfortunately Rodman wasn't any better in the ring then he was in WCW but lucky for us he didn't last long.
A few years after Rodman's TNA run ended. Hogan hosted a Bischoff produced reality show called Celebrity Wrestling. The premise of the show was Celebrities being trained to wrestle. So, someone who had already wrestled as a 'pro' on TV no matter how badly wouldn't be included in the cast of the show, right? NOPE! Rodman appeared and was kept on over other celebrities who were a lot better in the ring then him but weren't buddies with Hogan/Bischoff. The winner of Celebrity Wrestling made an appearance on TNA after the show ended. Guess what who joined him!!
