Kane- when he was fueding with HHH and Evolution.
RVD- because come on who wasn't he over with?!?!
Taz- call me crazy but when he first came over and during the attitude was as paul heyman said "THIS MAN WAS A KILLER!!! HE WAS A WRESTLER!!! BUT YOU MADE WRESTLING A DIRTY WORD VINCE! AND YOU MADE HIM A FAT, DOOFY, COLOR COMMENTATOR!! AND NOT EVEN A GOOD ONE!!" lol but i did like taz on the mic too.
would have been great to see Test hold it at one point too, he had the size and the fundamentals

I'd say that RVD should've been champion or at the very least a strong contender for the RAW brand by 2003, he was by far the most over newcomer out of the invasion angle, and they didn't even do much with him. Just imagine where he could've been had they given the guy a proper push at that point.

Booker T was another guy that was on fire with the fans, I really think he should've went over HHH at Wrestlemania 19 and the WWE should've tested the waters with him as champ. Like RVD, he would've been a great main event babyface at a time when RAW was sorely lacking them. It's unfortunate that McMahon never fully pushed anyone from WCW aside from Goldberg and the NWO post-buyout.

Christian is another great choice, and I don't need to explain that given the comments above me. He could've been just as much a prominent player as Edge became had they built on his momentum. I truly think that Christian never fully recovered from that. It was his time to shine, and WWE dropped the ball big time.

RVD did get the title during RA but it was short lived unfortunately :/ RVD should've been in the WHC title match instead of Booker at WM XIX then have a little feud with Triple H before they brought Kevin Nash and Goldberg into contention. They really wasted what potential they had with Kane and RVD that year by putting the focus on WCW has-beens.

I know Shawn held the title for a month in 2002, but he should have gotten at least one real reign with the title, especially with the number of title shots he got, I just counted it out and he got a whopping 12 title shots from January 2003 to December 2007.

2003 Kane is a great choice
RVD didnt was very much in his prime so that would have been a good choice but never got it.
Christian had a real shot at it but after seeing a so so run in TNA its hard to say how that would have worked in WWE

I gotta go with Christian here. I doubt it would of happened but due to me being a fan of his ring work at that time, Finlay. He would have made a nice main event bully imho.

Finaly would have been good to see up there as a transitional champ i agree. Especially back in smackdown, i just felt bad for him when they saddle bagged him with Hornswaggle, At first it was kool but then it was just like "This gimmick will never end!!!!"

I agree the "Little Bastard" thing was amusing but when they named him, he started to overshadow Finlay. Then they completely killed Finlay with the son angle. It pissed me off seeing Hornswoggle get that kind of attention.

for me it was once we had the "illegitimate child" angle it was pretty much all face palm from me
