10 Worst WWE Champions Ever

There have been 107 recorded WWE Title changes since Hulk Hogan beat The Iron Sheik to become WWE Champion back in 1984. Here's 10 that really shouldn't have happened!

There have been 107 recorded WWE Title changes since Hulk Hogan beat The Iron Sheik to become WWE Champion back in 1984. In 2002, WWE announced the World Title that lasted until the end of 2013 and featured 55 title changes. That's a total of 162 title changes over the last 30 years. The criteria for something like this isn't easy because it's not necessarily about whether or not a wrestler is good or bad. Most of the wrestlers that become WWE Champion are very good. What it's about is how they are booked, whether they had any memorable matches for the WWE Title and if they added anything to it. The decision to put the WWE Title on somebody comes from Vince McMahon and his creative team. Since wrestling is a predetermined form of entertainment, the titles really mean nothing in terms of winning a real match. However, they do mean a lot in the sense that management is putting a lot of faith in somebody to carry the gold and represent the company responsibly. What champions were the worst ones? There's a variety of names ranging from recent champions that were talented guys that were booked poorly and also some from the 1990s that left us scratching our heads. This is a look at people that have won either the WWE Championship or the World Heavyweight Title when they were in WWE with a focus on the WrestleMania years. Here's a look at ten of the worst WWE World Champions in history.
