As defined here, one that relentlessly utilizes a model whereas heels dominate and the promotional effort is focused on the (largely futile) chases by babyfaces to win titles. A number of promotions have used this model in the past. Which one did it to the worst, most detrimental effect?

I think this is one of those things you only get the feel for when you've lived through it, thus I have a limited window to which I can speak.

Triple H's Reign of Terror was pretty depressing, mainly because it was a marked change from the Attitude Era where there were significant victories by babyfaces. Once Evolution came about, and Triple H elevated Batista, it didn't seem quite as futile, but it still drove me from watching Monday Night Raw consistently.

But like I said, don't have much experience living through a Heat Promotion.

Jeff Jarrett's domination of the NWA World title when TNA first got a spot on TV comes to mind. Especially as Triple H was in a similar position at the time.

NWA-Ric Flair would be the prime example but certainly not in a negative light.

Worst though? Jarrett.....TNA suffered this rather badly.
