WWE had an up and down year these past twelve months, and as a result, a lot of WWE Superstars didn’t have the best of times. But with a new year comes new hope, and we’ve assembled a list of Superstars who didn’t have the greatest 2015, and offered them hope that maybe things won’t be quite as bad going forward.
The year did not go well for WWE’s resident comic super-villain, although that’s actually how it should go when you’re a bad guy. Stardust broke up with his tag team partner and brother Goldust early in the year, but their desire to face each other at WrestleMania ended up getting cancelled after the two had a bad match at Fastlane. Over the summer, Stardust feuded with actor Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen on the CW show Arrow, but was foiled in his attempts to bring down the TV superhero. A feud with Cesaro was cut short before it could begin due to the Swiss Superman’s injury, and an attempted alliance with The Ascension didn’t exactly pan out well for the Prince of Dark Matter. To top things off, he was also prevented from stealing Christmas on a holiday edition of Smackdown. And on a more personal level, his father, the legendary Dusty Rhodes, passed away unexpectedly during the summer. But, like all good comic villains, Stardust can look forward to a New Year, new plots, and new opportunities to get everything he ever wanted.
