Who were the worst champions in terms of ratings?

Hbk or Punk among major stars.

Khali,Swagger etc-Don't even remember Swagger had a title reign.Khali was great as a monster heel but his skills were worst

Re: Worst drawing champion?Big Name wrestlers that can't draw?

Diesel and Sid come to mind first of all.

Re: Worst drawing champion?Big Name wrestlers that can't draw?

:lmao @ Punk. Nice subtle way to create this thread to cheap shot Punk.

It's Kevin Nash as Diesel back in the New Generation era. He fucking feuded with Viscera (King Mabel) for the title. Horrible reign and WWF was lucky WCW was poor in 1995 as well or else WWF could have gotten their asses kicked to bankruptcy.

Diesel, Randy Orton (not all of his reigns, but come on, the guys had like what 9 title reigns?), The Miz.

You people might debate the last one, but tell me who honestly bought a single PPV to see a Miz title match? His title run was pathetic looking back on it, though I don't think he's a bad talent.

Would you count WCW Jeff Jarrett as a big name? Khali, Swagger, ADR come to mind as champions who couldn't draw.

Re: Worst drawing champion?Big Name wrestlers that can't draw?

Sorry forgot about Diesel

But I was reading this ratings thread.
I think even Miz got a better ratings than Punk

Punk lost viewers on the over-run

You are saying big name but can't draw then it's perhaps Chris Benoit if not a big star then worst champ ever that i've seen is Jack Swagger.

Re: Worst drawing champion?Big Name wrestlers that can't draw?

I would say Nash and Hbk but not Bret

Bret was an international star

Diesel
Sid
HBK

Bret Hart was a decent draw; blame the WCW competition.

Would like to add Rob Van Dam, Rey Mysterio, Booker T and Bobby Lashley there too, but I'm not saying these guys suck.

Pretty much the only one in recent memory is Jack Swagger. 2010 (even up to now) basically proved to us that he has no redeeming qualities of a World Champion.

1995 was a horrible year for the WWF, lack of roster depth and really horrible champions. They almost went out of business, things only really began picking up towards the second half of 1996. Kevin Nash and Sid were atrocious champions that couldn't sell if their lives depended on it.
