Default People Who Should have Never won a title

This is simply list of people who were in my opinion of ever winning a particular title. While I'm happy for them that they did, people like this should never have one a title, either because they simply were crap in the ring or had zero personality.

1. Kenny Kaos-Yeah, rick steiner was a great wrestler with no personality, but why in the name of god did they put his second tag belt on a person like Kenny Kaos? There was a reason High Voltage sucked.

2. Tom Brandi-I didn't even remember that he held the ECW tag team title 1 time. That should tell you something.

Please add more people to the list as you see fit.

Default Re: People Who Should have Never won a title

I would go for:

1. Yokozuna
I didn't enjoy his reign at all. The guy was pushed to the top too quickly and I just don't think that he was good enough to be a champion. Sure, he was freakishly big (and I guess, in some ways, that is occasionally enough) but I think that after the initial shock of seeing somebody that obese in a wrestling ring, the appeal and attraction wears off. I remember watching as a kid in 1992, when Yokozuna debuted, and my friends and I were totally bored of him by the end of the year - before he'd even won the Royal Rumble. In the ring he was slow and monotonous; his character had little room for deveopment. Instead of Yokozuna, they should have put the WWF title on Mr. Perfect; he was white hot coming out of the Ric Flair feud / face turn in 1992, and got an even bigger boost when he beat Flair in a 'Loser Leaves Town' match. Mr. Perfect should have turned heel again, beaten Hart at Wrestlemania and then feuded with his old friend, Randy Savage, a little down the line. It would've been a great storyline.

2. Diesel
I hated Diesel's run as well. While I agree that he was an effective heel, he was a terrible face because he always came across as a bully in his matches; he overshadowed and outsized everybody. The title should've gone to Owen Hart, leading to a huge Bret/Owen rematch at Wrestlemania 11 (after Bret wins the Royal Rumble). If they really wanted a Diesel title run, they should have had him as a big, cocky heel, rather than a smartmouthed babyface.

Jack Swagger-After a lengthy reign with the ECW title he disappeared then out of nowhere won the MiTB, on the next SmackDown he beat Jericho for the title. When he won it he got a good reaction, then as the weeks went on he just got no reaction at all. Only credible win I guess was with Randy Orton at Extreme Rules. Then after that horrid reign he drifted into jobberville.

I'm pretty sure the only reason Show got the title late '99 was because he had a clause in his contract saying that he'd get the title within his first year, and due to Austin being injured, it was a last minute decision.

Does David Arquette and Vince Russo ring any bells? Awful, awful decisions, which just helped kill WCW.

Default Re: People Who Should have Never won a title

There were so many titles out there.....I really think you should narrow these threads to World Titles....and by that I mean....The WWF (Raw and Smackdown Versions), WCW/NWA, and AWA.

The reason Tom Brandi was a ECW champ is because he was there before Paul Heyman's "extreme revolution" and I say that with loads of cynacism. Brandi was not a terrible worker..in fact he was better than half the glorified jobbers ECW troted out in the "extreme era". He just lacked charisma.


Look the industry really sucks when it is not about the belts IMO, and I am not talking about the minor titles. Actually with few exceptions the major belts have not gone around the waists of many really bad choices. Here are ten guys who should have never been World Champion in order....

1. David Arquette (of course)
2. Vince Russo (complete joke)
3. Vince McMahon (again...joke)
4. Tommy Rich...if you don't know how he got the NWA title, look it up (sad days back then)
5. Otto Wanz...basically bought the AWA title
6. Larry Zbyszko....his commentary stint in WCW helped his legacy...he was not world champ material.
7. The Miz....so being on MTV, and stealing Mr Kennedy's gimmick gets you a title?
8. Kerry Von Erich....creepiest title change ever.
9. Rick Martel...territorial champ sure, IC champ maybe? but not a good world champ.
10. The Great Kahli...while I like the guy, as a person well, as a champ... bleh.

I don't think that Kane should ever have won a title. I'm not a big fan of his, but that isn't the reason. The reason is that winning titles and accolades isn't really part of his character. I always saw Kane as the guy who fought because he was a psycho, and needed a violent outlet. I never saw him as a guy who chased titles and played the game.
