Well to be truthful, there aren't that many World Champions I have liked in the last few years mainly because I feel the title is useless and having two world titles to begin with is just over-saturation and only devalues the label of being a World Champion. It is like "There isn't a Number 1 guy. There is 1A & 1B." and that is just annoying to me.

The only ones I can think of that I liked were Batista when he was hot in 05, Edge at times, Michaels when he got his nostalgia run, Punk in 09, Del Rio now to a point, and...that's about it really.

But 3 least favorites? Fuck, lets up that to 5.

- Great Khali = OK the idea of putting the title on a monster as big as him isn't that bad. The issue is keeping him protected and strong as a monster heel. So what happened? Well he lost to Cena twice, once via tap out. So monster's dead right? LETS PUT THE WORLD TITLE ON HIM!!! So he's a shitty worker that has had the illusion of the unbeatable monster ruined and now he's world champ. Great job.

- Jack Swagger = Just, lol. He was awful. So they jobbed him out for a year, and then he wins MITB and wins the title two nights later. That is the laziest fucking booking I think I have ever seen. And the guy wasn't even ready for that kind of a run anyway and has the mic skills of Sylvester the Cat.

- Kane = So you take bald, unmasked, and uninteresting Kane and make him world champion so he can rehash his feud with Undertaker for the 100th time? Yeah, fuck you WWE.

- Sheamus = He basically became Irish Cena and it was atrocious. Boring matches, boring feuds, awful promos, and just this stupid smiling doofus presentation that feels phony. Hated it.

- Rey Mysterio = They booked him so horribly as champ, it made me wonder why they even bothered having him carry the title for more than a month. I mean Jesus. Aside from JBL, did he win any matches? Any at all?

Yeah, the WHC is basically what the IC title used to be in the early 90's. The WWE title has been THE championship now for awhile.

He beat Orton in an excellent match the week after Wrestlemania 22. So for that alone, I am happy about that title reign happening.

I really didn't mind Khali's or Mysterio's. At the time Khali was still booked like a monster, and this was during Smackdown's dark days when literally every other main eventer was injured except Batista. I'm not saying they did a good job with Khali or that he's talented or anything but it was about as good as we could expect it to be. I enjoyed it for what it was. At the very least, the belt looked credible.

Same with Mysterio. Yeah they used Eddie but at the start it was a nice little "feel good" story. In the end though they really dragged that shit out and made Mysterio look bad, and if I recall correctly he was screwed over by Chavo of all people. So I can certainly see why some people may have him listed here.

Oh and I refuse to acknowledge that Dolph Ziggler reign. Fuck that shit, it doesn't count.

Jack Swagger - Aside from the stuff with his father, his first reign was not only ...hed but really, really bad. Having Swagger go out there and cut 20 minute long promos was also a horrible idea. Once he grabbed the title it really dropped down the card: now it opens for Wrestlemania in a 10 second squash.

Jeff Hardy/Big Show minutes-long reigns - Both these guys won the title... and then isntantly lost it 2 minutes later due to a money in the bank cash-in. That annoys me. Why give them another title reign notch in their numbers and to the title's history only to have it end immediately? Might as well've let the MITB guy beat the original champion. I get that it's to put a heel over a celebrating face usually but still, I think there were better ways to accomplish that without leaving screwy numbers.

Christian (both times) - I'm sorry, but like the previous two this was ridiculous. Christian wins the title... loses to Orton the next day... beats Orton again and holds the title... then loses it to Orton AGAIN. What the fuck was the point of that?

I guess these weren't my least favorite World Heavyweight Champions as much as my least favorite booked WHC reigns... but yeah.
