Do you want to know who are the worst WWE Champions of all times?. Yes, in this article we are compiling a list of terrible WWE Champions ever in WWE History .
We apologize if you not agree with our list but this is what we create on the basis of facts, statistics and previous performance. Just have a glance at this article to know more about these wrestlers.
10. Roman Reigns
Tenth position on our list is acquired by Samoan wrestler Roman Reigns. You are thinking why we placed Roman Reigns in this list?. This is all because of his lack of style in promo delivery, limited in-ring move-set and he was also booed heavily by the WWE Fans.
WWE critics thought that he was pushed too hard by the company in order to replace John Cena. WWE wants to make him the next face of the company despite of the negative comments and reaction he received from the WWE universe. Overall, he is not ready to hold the prestigious WWE Championship title, though he is 3 times WWE World Heavyweight Champion, 2015 Royal Rumble Winner and one time WWE Tag Team and United States Champion.
9. Alberto Del Rio
Though he is a very good technical wrestler and a mixed martial artist, who won around 2 times World Heavyweight Championship, 2 times WWE Championship and 2 times WWE United States Championship. He is not fit for WWE Championship because he lacks in promo delivery, Superstar attitude and he was also booed by many wrestling fans.
8. Big Show
He is one of the heaviest and tallest wrestler in the WWE History as he is 7 ft tall and weighs 500 pounds. He has been in this industry for the past 2 decades and during his career he won many championships which include 4 times WWE Champion, 3 times WWF/WWE Hardcore Champion, 5 times WWF/WWE Tag Team Champion and many more.
But because of his baby face and zero wrestling ability, we placed this Giant in our list. He is not a solid in-ring performer that WWE wants him to be.
Sheamus is an Irish born professional wrestler who is currently working with the WWE RAW brand. Sheamus is a good friend of WWE COO Triple H, that is why he got many opportunities to become the next WWE Superstar but he fails to do so. He was continuous pushed by the company like Roman Reigns, in order to become the so called “Flagship Star”.
John Charles Layfield Aka John Bradshaw Layfield is an American retired professional wrestler and commentator, who was born on November 29, 1966 in Sweetwater, Texas, United States. JBL got popularity from his Tag Team with Farooq named Acolytes Protection Agency (APA). He is not as good wrestler as he is in a WWE Smackdown and RAW commentator panel.
During his career he won many championships which include 17 times WWF/WWE Hardcore Championship, 3 times WWE Tag Team Championship and one time WWE Championship, WWE United States Championship, WWF European Championship, WWF Intercontinental Championship.
5. Rey Mysterio
Fifth position on our list of top ten worst WWE Champions is grabbed by the master of 619, the ultimate underdog “Rey Mysterio”. Though he is one of the best in-ring performer, still he lacks in promo delivery and championship personality.
Though he is 4 times WWE Tag Team Champion, 3 times WWE Cruiserweight Champion, 2 times Intercontinental Champion, 2 times World Heavyweight Champion and one time WWE Champion.
4. Dolph Ziggler
Nicholas Theodore “Nick” Nemeth Aka Dolph Ziggler is an American professional wrestler and actor, who was born on July 27, 1980 in Cleveland, Ohio, United States. He started his professional wrestling career from November, 2004 and during this time, he won 2 times World Heavyweight Championship, 4 times WWE Intercontinental Championship, one time World Tag Team Champion and one time United States Champion.
But despite of all his achievements, he fails to prove his capability as a complete wrestler to WWE Universe and critics, who considered him as an Underrated WWE Superstar.
3. The Miz
Michael Gregory “Mike” Mizanin Aka the MIZ is an American actor and professional wrestler. He is projected as the next WWE Superstar by the company, but WWE Fans rejected him as their hero. WWE Universe tagged him as an over reacting actor because he has no main event effect and no championship persona in his attitude.
2. Jack Swagger
Donald Jacob “Jake” Hager Jr. Aka Jack Swagger is an American professional wrestler, who was born on March 24, 1982 in Perry, Oklahoma, U.S. He has all the wrestling ability incorporated into him by his trainer, but he is certainly not a WWE Champion material.
He was booed many times by the WWE Fans because of his weak story-line and character representation. His gimmick of Real American was hated by most of the WWE fans.
1. The Great Khali
He is one of the most popular professional wrestlers in India, but he was not loved by many WWE fans, maybe because of his ethnicity. He has a massive height of 7ft 2 inch and a powerful finisher named Khali Chop and Khali Bomb, but still he failed to mark his spot as a wrestler among WWE Universe.
This is basically because of his terrible wrestling techniques, no in-ring performance, lazy moves and zero mic presence which placed him in the first position of our list of top 10 Worst WWE Champions of all time.
