Re: People Who Should have Never won a title
Another guy I think shouldn't have held the title was JBL. I know that a lot of guys on here have a bizarre man-crash on him (probably something to do with is breast size) but hear me out; the guy was rushed too quickly from the relative obscurity the WWE tag team wilderness to the upper echelon of WWE championship glory. In early 2004, the guy did fuck all. He lasted 38 seconds in the Royal Rumble, lost in his forgettable tag team matches at No Way Out and Wrestlemania and did very little to make any kind of impression. As soon as Brock Lesnar left, the WWE inexplicably decided that they needed to rush somebody to the title scene (rather than simply manouvering the decent, proven and established main event players that they already had like Kurt Angle, Eddie Guerrero, Booker T, Chris Jericho or Undertaker) and, by simply handing him a "Great American" award they bumped him up from the bottom of the barrell to the top of the tree. Don't get me wrong, the guy wasn't a totally rubbish performer (he got better eventually) but his rushed push just totally put me off him; he relied too much on cheap heat (racism against Mexicans, flaunting his money) and his act seemed tired and old hat. His character wasn't established enough for me to take him seriously as a main eventer (not after a decade of being a bottom of the barrell nobody). I tried to watch, and I tried to enjoy, but I just couldn't get into it. It didn't help that he surrounded himself with the worst stable since the JOB squad (the fucking Bashem Brothers!? WTF?).
