10 Infamously Short-Lived WWE Gimmicks

The most infamous one-and-dones (or close to it) to have ever graced a WWE audience...

7. Aloisia


In its original format, NXT was a reality-esque game show that pitted developmental standouts against one another in the fight for a spot on the main roster. The third season of this version of NXT was for the females, as six women (including AJ Lee, Naomi, and Lucha Underground's Catrina) took part in the competition. One of the other hopefuls stood out in stark contrast from the opposition, and it's pretty easy to see why: the 6'8" Isis the Amazon joined the field, performing under the name Aloisia.

However, Aloisia never made it into the competition, and was released from WWE prior to the first episode. Stories differed as to why she was removed from the show, with one being that she just wasn't ready for the wrestling portion of things. There's also the belief that family-friendly WWE wasn't happy to learn that Aloisia, several years earlier, had posed for some provocative photographs for a fetish website, though she reiterated that she was clothed. Aloisia's replacement went on to win the NXT competition, that being Kaitlyn.
