I'm being totally serious with my answer

Bob Backlund
Really? But, how?

The whole reason for Backlund winning the title was to put it on Diesel 3 days later. He was a transitional champion and used to take the belt off Bret to give him a brief break for ventures away from wrestling and to build up for Diesel/HBK at WM, before finally ending his feud with Bret.

It was great because Diesel had been gaining popularity and WWE capitalized by making him champion and to deliver HBK/Diesel. Pretty much after that is when everything went to shit because Diesel only had 3 credible challengers, all who were babyfaces after WM 11.

Jeff Hardy

Does Brian Kendricks's Unforgiven championship scramble reign count?

Also JBL, yeah i went there. There was a time when you had to be the absolute best to have the WWE title and JBL isn't up there. The title went from Trips to Hogan, Taker, Rock, Angle, Brock and Eddie to this guy. What an absolute farce.
JBL is better than all of them other than The Rock on the mic. Possibly Eddie. What's the problem?

^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Re: Worst WWE Superstar to win the WWE title

I find it funny when the IWC talks about ratings, like they matter. Do you really watch a show and think, "I wonder how many other people are watching this?". I'm sure Shawn Michaels is somewhere in TX looking at his Hall of Fame ring thinking, "I don't deserve this, ratings were abysmal when I was champ." Vince McMahon should care about ratings, not us. I've never a day in my life worked for WWE, and I'm sure the majority of users here are in the same boat, so why do people bring up ratings.

I could see if the person in question actually was not entertaining and you brought in the quarterly ratings proving that people changed the channel while he was on screen, but even then why do you care so much?

It's like Raw a few weeks ago had the lowest ratings in 15 years, ok, the presidental debate and monday night football aired, you can debate if you found that episode entertaining, but still, as fans why do we care about ratings?

Rant over, looking at recent history, I can't say Khali like some held, because he NEVER even held the belt in question (then again I personally find a 7 foot giant winning a vacant world title in a battle royal believable). I'm not going to say Rey because he's small, or even if he was a transitional champ, he deserved to hold it at least once for being consistently one of the better workers in the WWE. If you actually watched tv during the Miz's build he had been built up strongly for well over a year and a half and most people at that point wanted him to become champ, and Jeff Hardy was the most over guy on the roster for a while before winning the WWE belt, so he clearly deserved it.

Now, as far as who do I think was a bad pick to win the WWE title? Sheamus, and I'm not looking at his overall body of work I'm looking at, at that time. I think now he's more than deserving as he's proven to be a good worker, his gimmick is defined and he's over, but going in to TLC 2009 he wasn't ready and that can even be said for his second reign. In my eye he wasn't matured as a performer until after his King of The Ring push and feud with John Morrison.

Re: Worst WWE Superstar to win the WWE title

Alberto Del Rio, due to the fact that his reign was forced down our throats. It wouldn't have been so bad if he could actually get a reaction, but having such a boring and stale character was impossible.

Miz comes in second

Re: Worst WWE Superstar to win the WWE title

Miz spent 80% of his run feuding and getting his ass kicked bye a retired wrestler turned commentator
