Re: Worst WWE Superstar to win the WWE title

I think it all depends on how you are rating worst, if we are going on how their reign was thats one thing but this seems like more of a popularity contest, but if we are going on reigns

Miz (Had no really good defense aside from wrestlemania, and never really looked like a threat the entire time)
Diesel (For the Same reason, which is even sadder because Kevin Nash naturally looks like a threat)
Del Rio (Had no character, and the whole time he just seemed to struggling with his character)

I love when people like you try to bring ratings up, to determine what was bad.


You do know the rating system is based on a select 25,000 households and the number is determined by what those select households watch. You can participate in the Nielsen study for up to 5 years.

But, since you want to talk about ratings, as if they matter, talk about this. HBK won the title at WM 12 and for the first 7 weeks of his reign, WWE was winning the ratings, even drawing a 4.7 and 4.1. On top of that, ratings were higher for WWE at that time, than during the reign of the previous 2 champions, Diesel and Bret Hart, who both occasionally outdrew Nitro. Ratings began to drop when Hall & Nash jumped ship and the NWO angle started.

HBK's second title reign after Royal Rumble 1997 saw WWE draw slightly more than with the previous champion, Sid. His third reign after Survivor Series 1997, WWE had the highest ratings stretch they've had since HBK's first reign, often drawing over 3.0.

Comparing the ratings during HBK's reign to those of the Attitude Era, they weren't really low, it's just that the Attitude Era had high ratings (likely because a new set of households took part in the Nielsen study). Fact is, HBK's title reigns saw WWE gain more "viewers" than the previous champions before him.


Anyway, I say Alberto Del Rio. Just wasn't ready and seems to have had a forgotten run (a rather short run). WWE gave him too much too early and his career never benefited from it. He's just now starting to become slightly interesting.

Re: Worst WWE Superstar to win the WWE title

Diesel and HBK also had competition (in the form of WCW, Hogan , Flair, Savage, Sting etc)

CM Punk has no competition

Re: Worst WWE Superstar to win the WWE title

The thing is with Diesel as champion, WWE only lost in the ratings twice. With Bret as champion in 95/96, they only won the ratings 4 times in 5 months. So if anybody is basing it on ratings, Bret was the worse champion back in 95/96.

Miz.
ADR.
Vince McMahon.

Some say he only knows two facts about ducks, and both of them are wrong. And that he has a plasticine model of James May in his garden shed for inspiration. All we know is, he's called The Stig.

You're a freaking savior. Thanks for posting this. I am so sick of this retarded notion that HBK couldn't draw. There are so many factors to consider but haters just look at a ratings chart without knowing shit and say "LOLZ he iz not a draw!!11"

It's beyond stupid to blame one man for all of the ratings just because he holds the gold in the first place. It's beyond stupid to judge who was a good champ or not based on ratings.

Checklist:
CM Punk holds world title for over 250 days. [X]
Zack Ryder wins another title. []
John Morrison comes back OR he reaches one million Facebook likes. [X]
Triple H vs Lesnar happens. [X]
Wade Barrett, Rey Mysterio, or Christian return. [X]
Cena takes time off. []
