in professional wrestling, a wrestler who loses in order to make another wrestler look good; also called jobber
Usage Note


c.2000, professional wrestling slang for one whose main purpose is to make the better-known wrestlers of the organization look good; he or she does this by losing to them. More commonly known as a jobber (though some enthusiasts claim there is a difference), and perhaps a mock-Italianized form of that word (but cf. jaboney “naive person, immigrant, hoodlum,” of unknown origin, American English, in use c.1990).

Jobber — A performer who regularly loses on television and doesn’t receive much if any push. A comparable term for such a performer is jabroni, which is a favorite catch-phrase of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. To soften the blow of such labels, some wrestling promotions refer to jobbers as enhancement talent. Carpenter was the phrase used by earlier generations.
