PW Boards WORST WWE Champion Tournament

    As the X Divison Tournamenf reaches its end, I thought this would be a fun one to do. We have already crowned who we thought was the best champion across different companies, but who do he think was the worse WWE Champion of all time? Well I have the official list of everyone who held the belt, and once the X Divison final is over we can open up round 1!

    Don't forget, you aren't voting on the worse wrestler, but the worse champion. There are some all time greats in this list, buts it impossible to ignore that some of their reigns were God awful.

    Im in! Gonna contact every Bret Hart fan I know and get HBK voted worst champ of all time #notbitter

    Good idea for a thread. It's gotta be when Vince won it though - surely?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,166 ✭✭✭Stereomaniac


    No. Shawn Michaels is the worst WWF Champion of all time. He wasn't able for any sort of expectation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Wonder will this include the World Heavyweight Championship too. Rey Mysterio and Swagger had awful reigns.

    The Great Khali begs to differ, could be a few contenders actually. Are WHC from the WWE era included or just WWE champs? There are a few WHCs that the WWE had that I think had terrible title reigns like Ziggler for example

    But..but... The Boyhood Dream... He ran up stadium steps and did upside down pull ups dang it!

    I don't agree. 1996 Shawn Michaels was awesome as champion. Wasn't his fault their business was in the toilet. He had a load of good matches. The Mind Games match with Foley holds up against any match in wrestling history.

    1997-1998 obviously he was in a dark place and his back was knackered too. 2002 he got the feel good moment and it wasnt necessary for him to hold the title for a long time or win it again.

    just go ahead and give it to Roman Reigns already.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,986 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Is there anything to be said for Kane ( 1 day), The Miz or Sheamus (latest reign)?


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,779 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    reigns... God awful.

    Round One!

    Don't forget, you are voting on the worse champion, not the worse wrestler.

    First wrestler to 4 votes makes it through to round two.

    Shawn Michaels

    Vs

    Stone Cold Steve Austin


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Well I think this one is easy shawn is definitely the worst from these 2.

    I don't think shawn was terrible but wwf was in dire straits at the time he was champ like Brett too tbh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,491 ✭✭✭thebostoncrab


    My vote is also with HBK. The first round is going to have plenty of matches like this, we're both guys had strong runs, but none of HBKs runs felt as memorable or as important as Austins. Austins "I need to beat you Rock" promo alone sold how inportant the belt was more than any other wrestler.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,986 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    HBK for me too. Austin was electric as WWE Champ, and him winning the belt from Michaels signified the entrance into the Attitude Era proper.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,752 ✭✭✭✭CSF


    Austin's reigns throughout the Vince feuds were excellent so it's hard to put him into anything titled worst. Shawn wasn't bad but here he's against someone who would have a legitimate chance of winning if this was the opposite poll of best champion.

    Shawn wins here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,491 ✭✭✭thebostoncrab


    And HBK botches a superkick into round 2!

    Next up its:

    Sgt. Slaughter

    e11635e4982e460d3d85ecf71769d69d.jpg
    Vs.

    HHH

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    Slaughter. Little more than a transitional champ.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,491 ✭✭✭thebostoncrab


    Slaughter also, HHH had the best heel champion run of all time in my books, while Slaughter was just the transitional champion. Think the whole tournament will come down to bad champions vs transitional champions.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,624 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    A lot of this early round might see whitewashes

    Sarge here also. Real Heat Magnet Heel who fit the time but transitional champ and nowhere near HHHs level


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,146 ✭✭✭Kankan14


    Slaughter.

    He was a nobody. As said above a transitional champ at best.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,846 ✭✭✭Moneymaker


    Slaughter. He was ****e, not at all credible and ticket sales for WM7 bombed with him as champion.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,491 ✭✭✭thebostoncrab


    And the sarge just can't lock in the cobra clutch and makes his way to round 2. From here, each match up is a triple threat, so your next three are:

    Romain Reigns

    CLZZsU7W8AAhrgF.jpg

    Vs.

    Vince McMahon

    vmc18.jpg

    Vs.

    Batista

    Roman by a mile, at least Vince used it to get himself over, with Reigns it's a case of nobody caring.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,846 ✭✭✭Moneymaker


    Roman, Vince winning it was a gimmick and actually served a purpose.

    Reigns serves as much purpose as dog**** in your ice cream.

    Did he even defend the title once?

    Heel Batista was an awesome champion.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,491 ✭✭✭thebostoncrab


    I gotta go for Reigns. I'll always take a win as champ that further a decent storyline vs a guy who has bombed as a champion.

    Batista is great and more than deserves to get knocked out this round


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    Has to be Roman. Probably the least over WWE/F Champion ever.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,405 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Roman by a long way.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,986 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Too late here but I would have gone with Vince. He held it for what, a week? No business having the title as owner


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭innuendo141


    I'd go with Vince. It was never going to go anywhere

    I thought Vince would last longer in this but tbh Reigns runs (jaysus hard to believe after mania he could already be a 3 time champ) were so short and meaningless and met with crickets or boos. He coulda been a good champ instead he is a contender in this competition.

    So Reigns for me.... Batista deserves to not be in their company.
