In the days of wrestling territories, the Heavyweight Champion was the best of the entire bunch. He was a star who could travel to any part of the country and put butts in seats. It was truly a thing to be envied, and the position carried a great deal of prestige in the industry. Certain memorable eras in wrestling are defined by the title reigns of the time: Ric Flair's NWA run in the 70's, Hulk Hogan's WWF reign in the '80s, Stone Cold in the 90's. In sports entertainment, being champion means that a certain amount of faith is being placed on the wrestler to carry the show more than the rest of the roster. Even with secondary titles, as Spider-Man says, "With great power comes great responsibility". The sad truth is that not everyone who has had this honor bestowed upon them has made the industry-wide impact of the Hulkster or Triple H. Sometimes titles are exchanged as a way to build heat but sometimes title reigns serve as space-fillers until the bigger story develops. Whatever the reason, these so-called champs aren't likely to be remembered in the annals of history as game changers. They are the 10 worst champions of the 10 best titles in wrestling history.
