Depends on what the criteria is for worst champion. Hart also had trouble pulling out a great match if his opponent wasnt on his level and shows just how elite HBK was when he could take anybody and make them look like a million bucks.
I think its about drawing power, something Hart couldnt do when he had the ball. Yokozuna drew better then Bret Hart, sad but true. Meltzer, who is a Hart fan even stated that Harts drawing power as champ is one of the worst ever in the history of the show and that the amount of bleating HHH gets as a top guy is backed up by stats that he drew almost five times what Hart could at house shows and thats when house shows were the WWE's bread and butter. HHH out drew Hart in Canada, where Hart wouldnt do the honors and drop the title like a man.
Harts has always placed his international star power out there for anybody to hear, but the truth of the matter is Hart was on the top of the card when the WWE took their brand worldwide and was at the right place at the right time considering the world wanted WWE more then just wanting to see Hart.
Say what you want about Nash, and he is steaming crap. But, he also was at the top of the card when the NWO formed and has how many high drawing PPV's with his name on top because of it, while once Hart left the E, he was pretty much delegated to mid card status while in WCW, where his career died away from Vince and the WWE hype machine, exactly what Vince said would happen.
Great, formulatic matches where the five moves of doom happen mean nothing if nobody is watching them in the first place. Bret Hart is the most over rated wrestler in the history of the sport and the only person who actually thinks he is one of the all time greats in Bret Hart and Bret Hart only.
