Jobber



    • A professional wrestler who frequently and deliberately loses matches.

    • The act of losing is called jobbing and a frequent loser is referred to as a jobber. It is a mark of disrespect to refer to a wrestler as a jobber, as it implies they are a failure in their career. The term has entered into popular culture, to mean a loser or someone who is worthless, as well as its Italian equivalent, jabroni, a phrase that was made popular by The Rock. Former alternate terms included journeyman (because of jobbers being hired for individual matches and not having contracts with the major promotions), enhancement talent (due to their usage to enhance the stature of their opponent) and ham-n-egger (in reference to the amount of money they make buys them just enough for a Ham and Egg breakfast).

    Despite the negative sense of the word, some wrestlers have made a career out of jobbing. Barry Horowitz and Steve Lombardi (better known as the Brooklyn Brawler) made a career out of jobbing, primarily in the World Wrestling Entertainment.

    A slightly higher position is jobber to the stars, which is a wrestler who still defeats pure jobbers but who consistently loses to top-level or up-and-coming stars. This often happens to popular faces towards the end of their careers, including Tony Garea and Tito Santana. Triple H was given this role from 1996-1997 by Vince McMahon as punishment for the infamous MSG Incident.

    Many top names in wrestling began their careers as jobbers. Mick Foley and Bret Hart began their careers as jobbers in the 1980s, later going on to greater success in the 1990s after employers began to recognize their talent. Peter Polaco and Terry Gerin were jobbers who later became stars in ECW as Justin Credible and Rhino, respectively.



  • one whose shortcomings makes others mediocrity look better than it actually is.



  • Anyone in the WWE under 66, a wrestler that always loses to make more popular wrestlers look better.

  • A guy or girl who is only in it for the job. Not necessarily evil if they are a henchmen. Not necessarily good if theyre a police officer. Youll usually see them getting their asses handed to them by a super hero or super villain.



  • A wrestler whos job is to lose every match.



  • Someone who focuses on the art of not getting fired or doing just the bare minimum at their chosen profession rather that working hard because they are truly driven to make whatever they are working on or for better. Large corporations are safe havens for jobbers, they focus on being there on time and not causing problems as well as passing work to others while striving to do the bare minimum amount of work to retain their job. Any system that favors employees for anything other than performance is probably a jobber safe haven. The jobbers joy in life is non existent as they probably hate their profession which turns what was an otherwise useful human into a worthless hunk of meat waiting to die. This lack of joy often drives them to work against non jobbers as it is in their best interests to keep their work environment free of non jobbers so they can stay hidden. Their hiding skills are those of looking busy, sounding smart, and doing nothing. Many jobbers walk a fine line between being discovered as being a jobber and having to do actual work, which is strictly forbidden by jobber code. If you hate your job, you are a jobber and probably suck at life.
    Jobbers are often inept at their professions.



  • A jobber is someone that is a no name loser. He never plays and when he does, hes only in to get playing time or to lose on purpose.
