When you were a mark, which wrestlers did you still not like because of reasons that the smarks didn't like them?
I'd say Cena's begginings as a face, when he was still using basic thuganomics as his music (Yes, I was a still a mark then). I would watch him get huge pops, and just not get it. He annoyed the hug out of me, mostly because he looked like a jackass and his fanbase was annoying I'd say that's where my smarkdom began.

Heh...as a mark I was pretty much the anti-smark. I loved Yokozuna, Warrior, Sid Justice, and others as a kid. I also hated Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart. But I did despise Lex Luger because I thought his matches were slow and boring...so I guess that's it.

The moment Shawn Michaels turned babyface, I hated him. The crowd loved him and I hated them even more for it. And I REALLY hated the way Vince would perform commentary felatio on him every time he came out. I generally liked all of the guys the WWF made their top babyface prior to that. Even Lex was OK. But I wanted Shawn to stop stripping, and I wanted the men in the audience to stop cheering for it. That's pretty much where my days as a mark ended.

Lex Luger for being so slow and boring, as someone already said. I hated how everybody at my school thought he was the awesomest wrestler of all time just for bodyslamming Yokozuna.
Of course by then, I had already come to the smarky realization that "they weren't really fighting."

Kimbo Slice: July 14, 2003
Orton fought Slice in a Florida shipyard. After absorbing numerous punches to the face, Orton managed to wear Slice down with a headlock, and nail the rKo for the victory after both came back up to a standing position. Although Kimbo Slice was not knocked completely out by the rKo, he wisely refused to continue.

The Rock. I actually grew to appreciate him more as a smark than as a mark.
And I've always loved Benoit since day one. I was kind of a smark from the start, really, except for my mark-like hatred of Edge & Christian (man, the combination of promo ability and booking was GOLDEN for those two!).

I don't 100% understand the question but I'll try getting to it. I think it's Matt Hardy around the cheating incident. A lot of people in my forum thought Matt was just being childish and immature so I agreed when I was still a mark.
But I dropped that whole predicament and learned to appreciate Matt Hardy as a worker. I learned a valuable lesson... Never let a wrestler's personal life get in the way for your feelings towards a wrestler's character.
